Default GSD Breeder Search Help

Glad to have found this forum! I'm looking for help finding a smaller scale breeder with really nice quality GSDs that meet my goals for a future dog. I've rescued every pet I've ever had, so this will be my first purebred dog so I'm being picky.

My wish list is this: male show line puppy with temperament suited more toward family companion/agility/therapy vs. bite work. (The "mushier" puppy in the litter!) Must be very thick boned, with a blocky masculine head with a kind expression/eyes, very deep red coloring and black mask, stock coat on the "plush" side. Straighter-backed conformation is preferred; I know that's not really in vogue now though. I just do not want a puppy that is walking on its pasterns or that looks like it's collapsed in the hind end.

Very comfortable in the $1500 - $1800 range plus shipping but will go slightly higher for a perfect match.

New England area, willing to travel though. Will an 8 week old puppy fit in an underseat carrier? I'd prefer to fly home with a puppy vs. ship.

I have no idea but if I'm trapped on a flight with a yelping 8 week old puppy I will personally strangle you lol.

Lots of good breeders in NE though:

You will be lucky to find a showline puppy for that price point.

I have this vision of you cuddling a puppy in one arm and throttling someone over an airplane seat with the other.

I love it, I am in the exact same boat, I am looking for a show line male that matches that exact description and all of my other pets have also been rescues. I think I have found the breeder for me but they are in Wisconsin, Vom Haus Miller.
