Default Looking for a breeder in MD

Hi all,

I had a GSD as a kid and am looking for one at the moment. I'm looking for a black, long hair, GSD.

Looking for an active dog, since I run at least 3 times a week.

Any recommendation is greatly appreciated. I'm located in central MD.

Thanks

Dave

Hi Dave,

Carolina from Johnson-Haus is a member on this board.

can you be more specific as to what you're looking for in terms of temperament? and does the breed HAVE to be in MD? Would you be willing and able to have a puppy/dog shipped? That would better help us help you.

Hi KZoppa,

In terms of temperament, I am looking for a "medium", where the dog is friendly natured but will be protective of my family when the situation calls for it.

I do understand that training will also play a part in her temperament.

In regards to the breed in MD. I am willing to have the puppy shipped. The reason I choose to meet the puppy in person is because I believe in the notion that the animal chooses it's owner and vice versa. Some may find this notion to be silly, but i truly believe in it.

Thank you for your response!

Dave

I don't think that Carolina and Dennis allow you to pick your puppies. They test them and match accordingly. And I don't think they have LC's either.

Jax, thanks for the info. I am ok with them matching the puppy to what we are looking for.

None of the reputable breeders we can recommend to you will allow you to choose your puppy. They are with the puppies from day one and get to know them and their personality. If you know what you want in terms of temperament and drives and are open with the breeder you choose, they'll match you with the puppy that best suits your needs and desires.

Carolina and Dennis are nice people with great dogs.

If you're not opposed to having a puppy shipped to you, there's several other breeders you can check out.

Weberhaus, Shraderhaus, Crooked Creek Ranch, Gildaf, etc. If color and coat are last on your list, as temperament should be first above all, any of the above would be suitable as would Huerta Hof.

Someone else want to chime in with others that I've missed?

They're all very nice knowledgeable people and great breeders. They know their dogs and work very hard at maintaining the lines they produce. If you're honest with them, they'll be honest with you.

KZoppa, you are absolutely right! I think being matched by the breeder will be wonderful, as you previously mentioned that they know the temperament of the puppies better than I do.

Thanks for the breeders recommendation. I will research and choose one that I'm comfortable with

Within driving distance of MD? I would look at Wolfstraum who has an upcoming breeding. No LC's but possibly black. Blackthorne in NC. Art Shaw at Zahnburg has a litter on the ground right now but I suspect those dogs are "more" than you are looking for in drives. Here is a list of breeders

Look in CT. Erich Grasso might be a possibility for you. I've met one of his dogs. Loved him

You never know about long coats!!!! They pop up....!

Only have had a couple, G litter....Xito threw them, but I got none from Kyra, dam of Csabre, or Csabre with limited litters....Kira, daughter of Csabre, will be bred to a Falko Wolfsblick son (black) in the next few weeks...Kira is HGH titled, and Meghan Rabon will be whelping and raising this litter as she is co-owner...Ellex is said to produce very nice, stable, solid tempered dogs who should fit into any training/home scenerio...not overly hard but more biddable, not over the top in civil aggression...a good fit for a sport home or a companion home.
