Don't really like the link posting on here b/c it doesn't list the breeder's names all the time. Choices are:
Van Meerhout
Von Grunheide

Definitely dont discount a breeder because they feed raw. That to me would be a plus! A breeder who feeds raw is most likely careful about their dogs' health and what goes into their bodies and I would expect them to be quite involved with their dogs in other areas as well (not always the case, but tends to that way). Unless your vet is a nutritionist and a breed specialist is this breed, I would take their advice with a grain of salt. Vets get very little training on nutrition and many do not know much more about diets for healthy dogs than the average pet owner.

Thank you for all of the input everyone. I think that I have decided on Heidi Theishof to be my breeder. We are expecting our new addition to be born 1/27/13. Heidi had some interesting comments on raw feed, as well. She said that in the wild wolves eat the stomach first (vegetarian) and that many dogs are allergic to a lot of grains, but that a lot are also allergic to beef and chicken. That in the wild they would eat bison, elk, rabbit, etc and that if you are going to feed raw it is best to use that. She had a bit more to say but I will let her tell you if you are interested. Anyway, just thought that it was a well thought out response from her. There is a link to our new pup's litter below. Thank you for all of your responses and guidance. We are very excited for our first German Shepherd.
