Breeders near Portland, OR
 
Hi all,

In doing our research we have been referred to von Waldhimmel and Temar Shepherds in the Portland area. Do you have experience with either of these breeders or have another to recommend?

Thanks for your help!

What type are you looking for: show or work lines?

litter being planned -- strong working --

We are looking for a German show line, one that is good with families (especially kids) and other animals. Temperament/personality is key.

Hi there!
I am getting ready to get my GSD from von Waldhimmel.
I was doing quite some research and I ended up going for a Showline GSD, since I wasn't sure if I want to go for a strong Working Line oriented GSD.
I plan on doing some work with my GSD, some obedience and maybe getting back into S&R or Agility (depending on what suits my future dog best :-) )

So far every time I communicated with Mary Bryant, I had nothing but good vibes and it is pleasant to communicate and dealing with her.
(I kept bugging her with questions and kept flip flopping between litters)

I am definitively looking forward to picking up my puppy in April!
I would suggest to just contact her and keep asking her questions :-)

I hope I could help! Have a great day!
Yvonne

no show lines from my connection - however I understand the TeMar has some good dogs . My friend bought X-Justice v Temar (?) and is very pleased with him , and the pups that he produced .

Did the people making the recommendations actually have any experience with the breeders themselves?!

I'm from Portland, too. PM when you get the chance, there are several breeders to watch out for in the PNW area.

If you are willing to also look outside the state, there is a breeder in Idaho worth talking to. I've never spoken to her personally or met her dogs, but have heard nothing but good things about her over the years from people I trust. Here is her website: Theishof German Shepherd Puppies for sale in Boise, Idaho. We can ship to any state!

I also would like to recommend Fairway and her breeding partner Flight of Fancy Farms in Oregon: Fairway Shepherds and http://www.flightoffancyfarm.com/ Their websites haven't been updated in a while, but I met both breeders this past weekend at a show and had the opportunity to meet one of their males, Sumo (Flight of Fancy Farm and Fairway Shepherds). Fantastic dog, solid temperament, beautiful conformation, functional structure, and the sweetest disposition. Had no problem at a large, crowded dog show full of people and other dogs. If I had to go with a showline breeder in Oregon, I'd go with Fairway/Flight of Fancy in a heartbeat. They've produced consistently nice dogs in terms of conformation, structure, and drive, from what their website has shown, and equally important is the fact that the breeders are lovely, honest people. They only breed occasionally, though, and may not have a litter for another year or two at least.

Do y'all have recommendations for German working lines? I will take any and all advice you have to offer!
