I was looking for a puppy about 1 1/2yrs ago did talk to Jean (Schraderhaus K9) she is a very knowlgeable lady took the time to answer all my questions. I was very surprised how patient she was answering all my questions. I did purchase a puppy locally but I would not hesitate to get a puppy from Jean. From speaking to her I could tell the GSD is very dear to her heart a very honest Lady!!
