Looking for a long hair german shepherd breeder

I am from alliance ohio, looking for a breeder that sells long hair germans for under 1500. I really want a long hair but everyone I have seen has been at least this price. I am also not looking for a puppy until spring, so I am looking for someone who will be having puppies around that time. I would also love a black and silver if possible. I know this is frowned upon but I just love that color. All colors would be considered, personality and health come foremost. Id love to look at your website. And if you are within 2-3 hours from me, I would love to visit the puppy before purchasing to find the one with a personality perfect to me. I am looking for a puppy that i could train as an Emotional Support Animal. Thanks for any help!

Just an FYI, long-haireds have no show potential so if it's a showline breeder, they should not ask premium prices for the long-haired pups - they are all "pet quality".
Of course prices are all comparative but the breeder will know right away they are not show-potential so they should not be sold as such.

You may want to consider adopting a rescued dog, as sometimes a younger "adult" dog (8mos. + ) is a "what you see is what you get" temperament-wise.

(just a thought)

Well, long stock coats can ne show quality. While most of us know the difference between true long coat and long stock, when people are looking for a long coat, most end up wanting a long stock.

Lay people tend not to differentiate

Good pups cost money. Breeders must at least break even - doing it right is a significant investment. You might luck out with someone cutting corners, but if you want to stack the deck in your favor, go with someone that does it right and support breeders that deserve your money.
