Default Breeder Recommendations in NY

Greetings,

I am new here and I'm looking to purchase my very GSD for me and my family.

I have looked into and contacted several breeders in NY but could someone recommend breeders that they have either bought from, had personal experience or know that they are reputable?

I am basically looking for a pet dog, German bloodli, that is great w/ young children and a home protector. Color is not a main issue but my wife would love an all black. Me and my wife have four children ages 7, 5, 3, and 2. We own our home on almost 2 acres and a portion is fenced in.

Any recommendations and success stories would be greatly appreciated. And of course, breeders to stay clear of.

If I missed anything, please let me know.

Thank you.

I see a lot of 'German Shepherd' clubs in and around NY State. I'm sure you would still like personal recommendations, but they do have some good links & info.

Here's one that has tons of info. We were recently in the same boat, looking mostly for a family pet. I linked and asked around then got lined up with the puppy in my avitar.

It wasn't much more going with a known breeder over prices often listed in paper classifieds. Some of these breeders have been around several decades, so a lot of history to sift through if desired.

Empire Working club in Marion NY might have a litter this summer that would be appropriate for you. Wolfstraum has a litter just bred in NJ. A friend of mine that does SAR has a litter due in January.

Where in NY are you?

I would check with Carol at Watcher-Engel in Connecticut. She usually has black pups and they are quality dogs.

Watcher Engel is a very good one, she produces a lot of black and nice dogs. I know Carol and she is a very nice, honest decent person.

Abby kennels is in MA, but they have really nice dogs that would fit what you are looking for and do have blacks sometimes.

Good luck with your search!

Has any heard of or dealt with Vom Hunter Haus in Cairo, NY? A co-worker recommended them.

I also saw on some threads about Van Den Heuvel k9 but are they from MT or CT? Their phone number of area code comes back to MT but on here they are said to be from CT
