South WI, Northern IL Breeder?

Just asking if anyone has recommendations for a German Shepherd breeder in WI or Northern IL. We are looking at getting a female puppy some time soon.

Our last 2 dogs were Labs, after much thought planned to go back to a GSD, which we had years ago. Thanks

Thanks, I'll check them out. I see the G.S. dog club of WI has links to recommended area breeders too.

What are you looking for in a dog? Any specific lines, look, or temperament?

Just looking for a family pet, 2 middlin kids with some acreage in the country. Not really needing much as a heavy duty guard dog. In the recent past our Lab did enough to keep an eye on things.

We are looking for a traditional coloring, 'saddle black' & tan to slightly darker. Thinking along the normal coating, not so much the longer hair. It will be a female too.

All of the places mentioned will produce a nice family pet. Although the only one mentioned that would give you a saddled dog are Mittelwest and Huerta Hof. Working line dogs are rarely saddle patterned.

I am proud to say that I can spot a Mittelwest dog a mile away, which is funny because 2 years ago I wouldn't have known the difference. They have some big, very rich color black/reds.
