Smile I want to buy an adult german shepherd male

I am new to this website. I have joined in order to locate and purchase a German Shepherd. I wish to locate a quality adult male. My wife and I are very stable and live in the Country on 5 acres. We would keep the dog in the house and provide the dog with a very high quality life. In fact we are home all day as we work from our house. We would consider any color and are willing to travel to any state to retrieve the dog if needed. Darrin Bradley my email is turkeys79@yahoo.com

Can't help but people are going to want to know your general location.

Also are you looking for a working line or show line? Age preference?

I want a good looking dog. Really no preference as long as the dog is sound and looks swell. I live in Missouri. Thanks for your help. Any thoughts.

Have you looked into any GSD rescues?

I have really looked into rescues but when I search rescues I only see dogs that are "mixes" and look shabby. I really want a great looking male.

If I were in your locale, this breeder would be the first choice.
Crooked Creek Ranch
One in KS that may be of help:

But if you are willing to travel, then maybe you should look at different lines and what best suits you so the dog will be a good match.

Here is a rescue near me that has very nice adults going through often. Facebook has the best photo/info https://www.facebook.com/SouthwestMi...Rescue?fref=ts or you can look on this site for contact info: https://richlandanimalrescue.org/

You should really research the different lines...and watch them work. "Good looks" is just scratching the surface.

There are some great breeders here on the board, so I'd look at the different forums(choosing a breeder, etc) for more information on lines.
