Thank you for those who have been kind enough to speak with me and help me out this far. Just wanted to update this thread. I'm still overseas and look to be buying a puppy upon my return around July. I have continued to work with the Military Working Dogs here in my area and have learned as much as I can.
I'm still looking to buy from a reputable breeder along the east coast. I will be able to pay all expenses up front and am willing to answer any questions needed.
If you could please contact me here or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are expecting a litter in the time frame previously stated and are willing to help a deployed Soldier I would be extremely grateful.
Luckily I have been able to contact most people via email and have had great conversations with them.
It looks that if I were to be able to pick up a puppy in July the litter would need to be conceived within the next few weeks. Does anyone know or recommend anyone that will be having litters at this time.
Again, thank you for the people who have responded to my thread and I always continue to look forward to all the help I can get.
