Default Need help with Southeast and Mideast coast breeders

Ladies and Gentlemen

I'm a U.S. Army Officer currently deployed and very interested in owning a German Shepherd when I come home. I have wanted one ever since I can remember and have had the privilege to know a few around the work place. I'm looking for breeders on the East Coast that I can stop by on my return trip back to my parents home for leave. I will be traveling from Savannah, GA to Richmond, VA and would be willing to drive a few hours off of interstate 95 to pick him up. I'm looking for a male puppy from a well established line of working dogs. What I'm interested in learning from this community would be who are some well-known and liked breeders along my route, where are they located and what is the price range they sell their puppies. Thank you very much for the help and I look forward to hearing your responses.

Jeremy

"welcome home and thanks for your service" i am not the one to answer, sure you will get plenty of responses, but google "blackthorn" gsd. i believe this breeder is very highly thought of on this forum and is on my short list for my next pup.

We have a few dogs in our club from Hillview. My girl is my pride and joy .
We also have members in our club with dogs from there, so far all are working very nicely.

Thanks everyone for the help thus far. I will be looking to buy around July/August of 2013 since I will be here overseas for a while. I didn't know how far our to start contacting breeders but this gives me something to do while I'm here. I'm very motivated to go through with this so I won't be wasting anyone's time. Thanks again!

Along with finding a breeder I would like to know the process in general of purchasing a puppy. I understand the litters are planned so I want to be able to ask the right questions to make sure I get my dream dog. I'd appreciate all the help I can get and as I said before, it will not be until next summer until I would be purchasing. Thanks again!

LOVE that you are doing all your research so early on finding the perfect puppy and best breeder for you!

I think I'd recommend you spend alot of time on the ---> Welcome to the GSD/FAQ's for the first time owner - German Shepherd Dog Forums (click that) so you will be vastly more knowledgeable when talking to breeders. Meaning the best breeders will know you are worthy of owning one of their wonderful dogs! More we know going in, the more we can help the best breeders match us with their puppies (or not).

Good luck!

Thank you very much for the references. Still trying to view my options. If anyone would be interested in talking one on one I do have free time despite being deployed. I will greatly appreciate all the help I can get. Again, looking along the East Coast from Savannah, GA to the Richmond, VA areas. 100% committed to this and willing to learn all I can to ensure I do everything right.

If you are more along the east coast physically and can visit, look up Frans Slaman at von der sauk. He trains, handles competes with his dogs - that is critical in choosing a dog. You can verify that he has done the competitions :-) He is well known in both working and training.
