Default Looking for info on PA breeder ( keystone Puppies)

hello everybody, Me and my girlfriend are looking for a reputable breeder in PA (near Philadelphia) to purchase a German shepherd puppy , we have come across a site " Keystone Puppies" that at first glance seems legit and claims to be AKC certified and has some great looking dogs at great prices. However I can find little to any review information on the agency to confirm it is not a Puppy mill site, so I came to this forum to see if anybody out there has any experience with them and if we should go forward with dealing with them

What is the website? THis?
German Shepherd Puppies for Sale in PA | Keystone Puppies

This is nothing more than an advertising website.

What are you looking for in a dog? Working line? Show line? Looks? Temperament? Activity level? Price?

There are many good breeders within a couple hours of you.

it was, I understand they use multiple breeders but they give a guarantee as " keystone Puppies" and claim the breeders they use are legit. I'm totally new to this so maybe I am way off

What guarantee? Do they guarantee a replacement puppy or money back if the puppy has a genetic issue like hip dysplasia? In my opinion, those are probably backyard breeders or Amish puppy mills. If you tell people what you are looking for, they can recommend breeders in your area. There is also a post on how to find a reputable breeder that should help you.

Things to look for in a 'Responsible' Breeder

Do you know of any actual legit breeders then? you mentioned a bunch not far if anybody else has any recommendations of a solid breeder in southeastern PA I would be grateful to hear your reviews. I'm not looking for a show pup or anything alls we ask is the dog is healthy and not puppy milled .Any GS puppy from 8-10 weeks to a year old. Under a grand is our price range.

If you scroll down thru this section of the forum, you'll find many threads on NE breeders, PA breeders, I would contact Cliff in NJ (he's on this board)

The Keystone website looks like they are a puppy broker.

Where are you located? Be VERY careful in PA, puppy mill capital!! Find an actual breeder, not a broker site that just makes "claims". You want a breeder you can speak with directly, meet the mother, look at all the papers and documentation.
