Default Looking for a Breeder in the South

Let me give you a little background on myself. I'm 21, about to be married, and I'm very, very active. In a few months, I'll be married, and a few months after that my future husband and I have decided we both want a German Shepherd. My mother got one from a BYB and she has been the best dog we've ever had - so I'm looking forward to getting one from a reputable, respectable breeder and seeing how he/she turns out.

I want a female out of working lines, but I want her to have a good off switch. Basically, I want a dog who can be comfortable inside my home, but who can also compete on a weekend basis if I decide that's a hobby I want to take up. Is this too much to ask?

The two breeders I've found online that I like are Sequoyah out of TN, and True Haus out of California. The price of the dogs is similar, and the guarantees are pretty comparable. I've found good reviews for both online, and no one seems to be adamantly talking bad about them. I was just curious if any of you experts could point me in the right direction - if I'm not already headed that way? If I am, do you have any pointers for deciding on a breeder?

Thanks in advance.

Both have good reputations. I have no personal experience with either of them but I have met some nice dogs from them.

Put "Von Der Sauk" into google and you will find the Von Der Sauk Kennel in North, South Carolina. Frans and Shannon come highly recomended. We are very happy with them.

My apologies! I mean South as in the southeastern states. I'm in Alabama, but I'm willing to travel to the border states, and if a breeder isn't to be overlooked and the price is reasonable, I'm not 100% opposed to shipping.

Also, thanks for the South Carolina breeder. I'll look into them.

She is in Pensacola. She is a personal friend of mine, so I have met her dogs and they are wonderful. She's relatively new to the breeeding community but has extensive knowledge.
