Drache Feld just posted that they had a litter recently - you could NOT GO WRONG with going with them - they are a very very reputable and well known breeder....

the other you mentioned??? I know you will get some PMs...........

Seriously - health should be your biggest concern after your experiences.....go with someone that is recommended by people who actually KNOW the breeder....there are at least 5 or 6 Drache Feld dogs here in my area that I referred....good temperament, no bad health problems of the ones I still keep in touch with (and 2 of them are around 10 years old).....

If you REALLY want a specific look and it is second to getting a dog with outstanding temperament and health - then you might be looking for quite some time.

3 weeks is nothing. Some people will wait for a year or more to get exactly what they want.

wow, you are really giving thumbs up to drake and it sounds like a thumbs down to the other. Just so you know, there have been a few on this journey that had bad written reviews, so I crossed them off right off the bat
ok thanks

Saw this dog looking at a breeder from another thread, this is what I think of as a solid black mask

Wow..I have never seen a mask like that. Do you think that dog is young? He looks mature to me in the picture. Yeah, Rusty has alot of black on his face but not like that. I like it.

Could be young, but I have seen mature (~6 year old dogs) with a mask like that.

Have seen a couple like that - one an imported Kirschental dog that does AKC obedience locally (also has major health issues tho! I think EPI or SIBO)

Another was a BYB dog I ran into at a vet clinic.....

it is almost bizarre looking....

A young dog with a pretty black face and nice dark eyes (this dog is less than 1 year I believe)

I don't remember this dog's name but I met him years back and I'm pretty sure he was an adult. I remember his face was black.
