Looking for a breeder in CT

Hi all,

We are looking for a reputable breeder in or around CT -- one that breeds for health and temperament. We have a 2-year-old GSD already who we adore. We're not looking for a show dog or anything, just a good, healthy pup with a great personality.

Thanks!!

there can be slim pickens here in CT,,I would check with Noble Craft Canine in Canterbury. It's not real close to waterbury, but she may be able to direct you to someone in your area..sShe has a website and email is on there

The kennel I worked at in Litchfield (Stonehill Kennel) occasionally whelps pups (Dlha Roven lines), but I'm not sure if they're planning any litters in the near future. I've heard excellent things about Eric Grasso (German Shepherds for Sale in Connecticut (CT) | Police Dogs for Sale) both on this forum and from clients at the kennel.

Any preference in lines? Working? Show? American? German?

Like Diane mentioned... slim pickens in CT. Does the breeder have to be in state?

Thank you both! I've also read very good things about Eric Grasso, but from what I see on his site, he's training and selling older pups. (If we do get an older dog, it would probably be from a rescue.) Ultimately we would prefer an 8-wk-old that could become better acclimated with us and our dog as she grows up.

If it helps, I'm definitely willing to travel outside of CT, too, with reason obviously. I've also read good things about Ryanhaus and Miles River, both in MA. Anyone have any experience with them ??

I know one of Eric's dogs. He's fantastic. He does have some of his own breedings. He's on my list of breeders to check out for next year. Definitely worth checking out.

Van Gogh is in Mass. Worth checking out for sure. I believe there is a litter planned for spring.

We are friends with the Grasso's. he does some breedings occasionally but they do a lot of imports. Great training, great dogs...a lot head to police depts as k9s. We were getting our raw diet from him but ended up finding whole raw vender vs ground paste raw.

I'd also look into van den heuvel k9 they are right over the line in NY but they keep a lot of their puppies at a home in my town. We looked at them last summer but opted not to add another to the pack at the time.

ryanhaus I would suggest, she does have nice dogs, WOlfiesmom here on the board has one and he is quite a character

Von Hena-C in NH, has nice dogs as well.
