No. CA- any breeder suggestions?

Hi,
I posted on the general info forum as well.
Any breeders I should (or shouldnt! PM me for that) look into for a quality pup? I think what I'm after is a working line pup vs show. temperment is important, I dont want wimpy, whiny or spooky. Active is ok - just not lunatic. Not 100% solid on color but sort of prefer the black/tans or black/reds vs the solid or sable colors. I've been told its possible to get the B/T or B/R with the working bred dogs.
What else....? Oh yes, and health clearances, Hips,elbows. DM? I'm not sure what that is, maybe Id better do more homework. ha ha.. Thanks!

I really like her dogs....I own a couple.
However;...there are also a few really good WL breeders on this forum....if you don't mind having a pup shipped to you....you would do great to get a pup from them also!
Best Wishes!

Sorry...I almost forgot to mention a few names.

Chrisitne, Lee, Cliff, Chris, Carmen, Chuck, Melinda.......geez...I KNOW there are even more....I just can't at this moment get my brain to function, to even remember their kennels & websites...???
Someone will come and fill in the blanks for me.....sorry, I have the flu...and I can barely keep a thought together.

I believe DM stands for Degenerative Myelopathy. It is a horrible terrible thing. We just lost our 9 year old GSD to it in November.

Call Tyson Kennels in Menlo Park (right over D. Bridge) and ask for Randy. Club in on Sat on east side of Bridge in Newark.

I don't have any suggestions for you, but definitely try to find a breeder that tests for DM - degenerative myelopathy.

It's very sad to see, and I can't even imagine having a dog with it and having to go through it with him/her. It's sad that it's preventable, but breeders don't always check for it.

It's possible, but not as likely. If you are looking for the "typical" saddle back pattern you won't run across that in the working lines. (Maybe if someone bred a WL to a SL, but even then no guarantee you'll get a saddle back pattern) You're more likely to see the blanket back pattern or maybe bi-color or solid black. Sable is the most common to find as I guess you've already discovered.

If at all possible, see if there are any working dog clubs in your area (Schutzhund USA, DVG, PSA) and go see some dogs. You can observe the temperament up close and hopefully get some insight from handlers. They can also tell you if they had a good experience with a breeder, that type of thing.

I'd suggest Ajay Singh if you're looking for WL in CA. He is just north of San Fran.

Von Sontausen (Lodi) and True Haus (Oroville) breed working lines, not only do they have great bloodlines, they are both great people to work with.
