Default NYC / NJ Reputable Breeder Help PLS

Hey my name's Rohit. I just joined the forum after searching a bit, was wondering if someone could name a reputable breeder in the NYC area, I'd also consider NJ but prefer to find someone closer to home.. I turned to this site after visiting a breeder's home who turned out to be amish. We're just looking for a companion dog nothing crazy such as a show dog or anything.

Thanks for all the help and sorry if this was a repost..

We have several active members in the New York area who might be able to help you out.

Can you share a little more about yourself and what your ideal dog would be like in terms of personality, energy level, and possible activities? Is there a particular line of dogs that appeals to you more than the others? This would be helpful in tailoring recommendations.

Oh I didn't mean crazy in that context, I just meant I want a simple companion GSD not trying to go to a show or anything with him. To be honest I don't know a great deal about GSD so not sure about a particular line but just a calm, playful dog. Ideally a dog with a moderate energy level. We have a decent sized yard and plenty of parks nearby. My mom takes time getting comfortable with dogs so he's got to be friendly from the start. Thanks for all the help guys!

There are several good rescues in your area that you might check out.

Would you happen to have a link to some? I've looked at petfinder & a few other rescues but we're really looking for a puppy that way we can train it and have him grow up with us.

Here's a list of them
Garden State German Shepherd Rescue, Inc. local rescues page

If you get approved thru the rescue, you may find a young adult who is perfect for you or wait for a puppy to be available.

just an FYI....adult dogs can and will bond just as well as a puppy will so don't be worried about getting an adult. AND with an adult, you will know their temperament right up front whereas a puppy might not show fear or aggression until an adult. NOT to worry you about getting a puppy either! Just to explain the pros of adopting and adult.

Yeah I totally understand that, it's just my mom isn't too thrilled with the fact that we'd have a fully grown dog. She wants a small puppy that way they'll be some time before the pup is grown and she'll be use to him.
