Default DDR Breeder

Hi! My name is Weston and I have been searching for a good reliable DDR/ East German working line german shepherd breeder. I live in Kansas and would like a breeder that is close, but its not a must. Does anyone have any comments or suggestions on breeders that come highly recommended? Thanks for all replies!

Czech and DDR are one line dogs, you can choose either. My Lucy has DDR ancestry, very calm, very obedient, very energetic, very healthy and always photographed huge bitch. Your choice is pretty limited in US according to this: Vom Benza Haus GSD's - Home

Weberhaus would be my first choice to talk to if I were in your area. She has Czech lines.

Your choice is not limited. There are many good breeders in the U.S.

David - you are in Europe. What do you know about what breeders are where in the US?

There is a post regarding a Spartanville dog currently on this forum.
Read what she has to say about her dog. She got her dog from Spartanville German Shepherds in MI. Breeds DDR/Czech.

there is a huge difference between Czech lines and DDR lines.....

If you want a stictly companion dog, and want DDR, check out Blackthorn who has mixed DDR and West german lines

I don't see where the OP mentioned wanting a czech dog. David Taggart brought that up.

Czech dogs came from DDR, they belong to Herding group (not Working line), and East European GSD were bred primarily for military use. They have very high prey drive and stamina, intelligent and easily trained they are good at any job whether it police or cadaver/search dog occupation, but unsuitable for Schutzhund sport due to their larger size, because they are too heavy and bulky. It is said that Berlin wall preserved the original GSD essence in them, they are Max von Stephanitz dogs, they are working dogs to the core and cannot be just companions. http://www.unlimitedgsd.com/Portals/...dGSD/types.pdf

Weberhaus has a ddr/czech litter on the ground right now. KZoppa has Dax, who is a full sibling to this litter. Malinda is excellent to deal with and will point you in the right direction if she doesn't have what you need.
