Default Service dog - south coastal ga/jax fl area

ok, I have multiple sclerosis that has caused blindness in one eye and no peripheral vision in the other. I also have many balance issues. I am looking for a GSD to help with these issues (and more when my MS progresses. I have experience with the breed, my last GSD passed at age 12 from cancer last year (she was not a service dog). I have no children or other pets and will be training the dog myself (I have training experience). I live on St Simons Island in south coastal Georgia and am hoping to find a breeder within a two hour drive, so Brunswick, GA, Savannah, GA, Jacksonville, FL areas - Atlanta is over six hours away so that is out. I am looking for a dog no older than a year. My budget is only around $1000. I know that is low, but my vision and balance issues have made it so I cannot presently work and my funds are limited. I have tried to sift through breeders on my own and there are so many that I am overwhelmed. Any recommendations? Finally, I have no plans to breed, show, or use the dog as a protection animal, just a service dog/friend. Thank you!

You can contact Sara from Casa del Mango. I don't think she has any breeding plans at the moment, but she has trained her own mobility dogs and has extensive experience with GSDs, malinois, and many other breeds. I bet she'd be able to help you find what you're looking for. She's a really great person and does a great job placing dogs.
