northeast ohio area breeder selection
I have been reading and searching for a reputable breeder, but i feel so overwhelmed, I have found some breeders that looked good then found out that they got horrible reviews. So I have decided to post and hopefully I get better results. From my hovering and reading on here, I know I will get a lot of helpful advice.

Im northeast Ohio just south of cleveland any help would be appreciated.

How far are you willing to travel? You could also look in PA, IN, and MI along with OH. What are you lookng for in a puppy?

I'm not against traveling, i have opened my search to the surrounding states, A couple breeders here and there that caught my eye. For what I'd like out of my puppy..... I have always been drawn to a male black and red puppy. My girlfriend and I like to walk often in the evenings with her dog and go to the dog park. I would like to start with obdience stuff then go from there, I really enjoyed working on obdience with my parents gsd/retriever mix. It amazed me how working with her gave us something my parents didn't have, it was like she respected me more. sorry that I rambled a little bit.

Mark and Michelle have working lines so you aren't likely to find the black/red dogs that you like. I have never heard of the other breeder.

ok, Whited K9 didnt get to good of review on here in other threads. but I still need to investigate into the guy who gets his dogs from there and donates to police dept.

Sometimes a breeder will say they donate pups to police depts....but in reality the police depts are really choosy on what dogs they take. Not many of them are cut out to be LEO K9's. Have you looked at these websites in MI?
Did you do a google search on the whitedk9?

new2gsd 12-08-2012 01:41 PM

its not the breeder that donated the trained dogs. His name is Tom Girolami. I google search and looked at threads on this fourm. I'll take a look at the websites you suggested thanks.
