New and looking for a pup.

Hi,
New to the forum and I live in Puerto Rico, (originally from NY), and I am looking to try and find a reputable breaded that could ship to where I am at. So basically I would not want the pup to have a long trip so looking for recommendations from the east coast and as far west as Texas. That should be a 4 hour flight for the pup from any of those places. I have had 2 German shepherds in the past and now I want my children to have the same experience on what it is having a GSD as a family member. I have spoken to 2 breeders and one of them had too many complaints from customers so that one got dropped. The other breeder I was looking at is located by the great lakes but that will be a 2 stop or more flight for the pup. What we are looking for is a GSD with a black and tan or black and red coat, male with good temperament. Protective of the home and family and social enough to have company. That is the kind of GSD we have had in the past so please let me know if you need any more information from me.
Thank you in advance.

Sounds like you are looking for a family companion. Look into some of the different 'lines' of the GSD. Once you determine which line is for you, we can point you to some good breeders.

You know, many people have payed quite a lot of money to get a healthy puppy? Not physically only, but mentally as well? Anything could be corrected in the plasticine dog: you socialize him - he would be a family dog, you train him in a Schutz club - you have euphoria known to sportsmen, you want him to protect your home - no doubt, he will learn how to do it properly. But, will you fail to have a perfect companion or not depends on his health. That is all what pedigrees are about: dog shows confirm trhe statue and medical condition, and Schutz competitions confirm mental health and intelligence level. Ideally your pup should have parents with a degree in both.

The only other time I have heard "plasticine" used in a sentence was in the song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - "plasticine porters with looking glass ties". Now that I think about it, your post is about as clear as the meaning of that song.
