help selecting a breeder in Virginia/ Maryland
We are looking to purchase a German Shepherd puppy. I have been researching breeders in VA and MD because it is important to my husband and I that we are able to pick the puppy up in person and visit the breeder.

I was referred to Blueridge Lane German Shepherds. Does anyone have any information on them?

I would ask about health testing, hips/elbows at the minimum (and that means more than, "they have generations of excellent hips behind them"). There is really nothing on their website except a lot of fluff. Their 50% deposit is a bit crazy, IMO.

They let you pick your own puppy from photos starting at 1 week of age???? :headbang: Pups are allowed to leave at 7 weeks (too early). Personally I would keep looking.

Thank you. I have checked so many breeder websites they are starting to run together. I have not purchased a dog in over nine years. We have had large breed dogs but I have never owned a German Shepherd. We researched several breeds and we know a Shepherd will be a great fit for us and our children. We are looking to bring home a puppy in March/April if anyone has any recommendations for a breeder with in four hours of Stafford VA. Please let me know.

Please check your personal messages. There is a terrific guy in this area that is responsible for the dogs he breeds and our rescue thinks very highly of him.
