Anyone ever hear of this breeder?

I live in Central Illinois and was on akc.org and saw this breeder named Renee Kalmes from KalmesAcresShepherds. She appears like a reputable breeder but I would like to see if anyone on here has ever heard of her (good and bad things). If anyone else knows of some other good breeders in Illinois please let me know. Thanks!

I would look elsewhere if I were you. I certainly wouldn't buy a puppy from them even if they paid me.

Anything specific you're looking for in a dog? Working lines? Show lines? American or German? Anything specific things you're looking to do with the dog? Any specific look or colors?

Take a look at this site. It gives you an idea of all the different lines.

No need to hear anything. It's all on the website.

All you have to do is to look at these dogs. The ears soft and some of them were taped the wrong way, way too big and outside the standard which they seem to be proud off. A GSD is supposed to be middle sized not gigantic. Let's not start about the pigment. With one dog, I don't know whats wrong with it, but her eyes look kind of wonky...

I would not want a dog out of that kennel. Not if you paid me to take one. They maybe OFA and AKC certified and registered but to me, that is an example of Backyard Breeding.

Now, I don't know much about this breeder but I did hear a couple of good things about them. They title their dogs and health thest them. Home
Looks like a small but decent kennel to me.

Im just looking for a companion, pretty simple I guess. I dont have a preference on lines or colors or gender.

Even a companion needs to have good genetics behind them, I like the breeder Mrs K posted. Walk away from Renee.
