Oh! I see. Thanks for the advice!
There is actually a breeder from Quebec that pops up when doing a google search and I was curious as they currently have puppies available and it seems like their bloodline is 100% German.
Does anyone here know about their dogs?
I just met the owner, Michelle Giguere, to inquire about an adult GSD 'Ace'
she has available, and also to consider her for a future puppy in the Spring, and I got a good vibe/feeling about her. She seems to honestly care about her dogs, and seems to be a responsible breeder. She has a pair of very handsome studs with rich, beautiful red, black, and tan coats, something I have not seen in local GSDs. She gave me and my wife a tour of her place and showed me her dogs, and spent ample time with us teaching about care of GSDs, her dogs, and discussing the negatives of over-vaccinating dogs in general. This topic is something I want to seriously consider for my next dog since my GSD became continuously ill with autoimmune diseases starting at about 7-8 years of age and they got worse as he got older.
And as much as I wanted that day to take home 'Ace', who is a very handsome, well-behaved 4 year old male (that was actually one of her puppies), I choose not to only because we had just lost our 12 year old GSD, and I wanted to get over the loss a bit more so not to look for a replacement and be disappointed because he doesn't act just like 'Max'. Not sure if that makes sense. When I am ready to start again with a new best friend, I will definitely consider her for an adult or puppy GSD. She is located about 45 minutes outside of Montreal, and she is fully bi-lingual (French & English). Again, I have not purchased from her yet, but based on my initial meeting with her and her husband, I would not discourage you from contacting her.
