Default Please help us find a solid black German Shepherd puppy (NY)

Please help us find a reputable German Shepherd breeder with solid black puppies. We're looking for short or long coat, male or female (I'd like a male and my wife wants a female). We live in Binghamton, NY and are willing to travel up to 4 or 5 hours max. Our price range is $1500 to $1800. It's been difficult locating a reputable breeder. I've learned the evil ways of the puppy mills so I need someone's help finding a pup. I appreciate any and all help. Thanks.

David

I sent you a private message about the other thread.

I have met dogs from Wolfstraum and have always liked them - they can be around other dogs without issue and that's important to me, neutral to social with people depending on what they are doing (I've seen them at big flyball tournaments, so they are working and involved in that so will be neutral while focused - also nice).

While the actual puppy will depend on your goals for what you do with it, getting a solid dog from a good breeder is important for every pet dog, who is expected to exercise better judgment than their people most of the time!

Thanks for doing the research!

I'm in your area. What are you looking for other than color? There is a whole lot more to recommending the right breeder for you.

Jax,

Thanks for the reply. Other than being solid black I'd really only need the dog to be brought up with love and kindness by someone who takes pride in breeding him/her. I'd like the dog to come from a good pedigree and if possible it would be nice if it's parents had their hips and bones checked.

Otherwise I'm not too picky. My dream puppy would be a male, short hair, smart and calm. Just hoping for a completely black pup (like Batman). Thanks so much!

And we'd really like to get a puppy, not an older doggie. Thanks again

What kind of activity level? Neighborhood walks, hiking?

Health tested breeding stock, smart, off switch, male, stock coat, black.

Jax,

That sounds perfect. Activity level medium I suppose. I really like calm, smart dogs. Neighborhood walks for sure, playing in the back yard. I work 3rd shift, my wife 1st so there will always be someone home with the puppy. We have 2 other dogs (Mario, a Maltese boy who is smart and clam, follows me everywhere) and Banjo, my wife's dog (a bishon poodle who was born handicapped with a bad back leg). My daughter is almost two and my son 4 so I guess that factors in. Thanks again for your help.

Related to this topic I hope...

Do you find the solid blacks in show lines as well as working?

I've seen solid blacks in ASL. Not in WGSL. Typically working lines, IME (which is limited)

Yep, they're definitely out there... One of my dog's litter sisters is solid black.
