I forgot to mention one recommended breeder I am already looking into - Joe Berger on VomEngelsbrunn Shepherds. If you have anything to share about Joe or his dogs, that would also be appreciated.

I am originally from vermont and was going to get my dog from this woman in Wolcott. I have a friend that swears by her and has three of her dogs already and they are all fantastic! She breed working lines and show lines to bring a fantastic mix for companion dogs that have a drive to work.

I sure can...

My fiance and I are young (28/38), very active and live stable lives. I am from New England and she is from Pennsylvania and we find ourselves up in VT and Pennsylvania often. We both grew up with many dogs and have family with German Shepherds. We are not considering a dog for competitions, but we are very drawn to the GS's intelligence and companionship. It's important that the dog be good around children once we head down that path. My do understand that will require proper socialization. Many of our friends have dogs. How's that for a start?

If you like American show lines, this is the breeder we got Niko from (I can post a pic if you want). German Shepherds at Peakesbrook, AKC German Shepherd Puppies, New York German Shepherd Breeder, AKC German Shepherds for sale.

He's physically gorgeous and healthy. His temperament is perfect for our lifestyle (we are a bit reclusive), but we need to work on building his confidence and making him less reactive to situations that make him nervous. From what I know of the other dogs from this breeder, this isn't a problem with other puppies she's bred (so I'm guessing it's at least partly our fault). He has a strong prey drive, and is very food motivated and easy to train.

Any particular look that you're looking for?

Here's a list of all the different types of german shepherds out there (and there are plenty).

And what part of NY are you in? Are you upstate or closer to the city?

Thank you Lucky Dog. That link is very interesting and informative. I am most drawn to the German Shepherd Dog with East German Lines (DDR) and Czech/Slovak Lines. I find the deep, darker colors and the overall posture (straighter, sloped back) to be very attractive.

Here are two DDR breeders in NH that i've heard good things about.

Breeders of German Shepherds & Cairn Terriers | NH & MA | New Hampshire & Massachusetts - Pam Lake, Owner

Goble Kennels | East German Shepherd Breeders Dogs and Puppies | Loudon, NH

I saw you mentioned VomEngelsbrunn Shepherds... you know they're show line dogs, right? They're your typical black and reds. Big difference (temperament and looks) between these kind of german shepherds and the working lines that you mentioned that you liked.
