So, there isn't a #1 consensus dog? Was just asking. I'm new. I'm sure you all know who Zamp Thermodos was, right? Where can I buy a dog that looks like that? I'm tired of looking around and reading one ad after another from people claiming to be responsible breeders in the best interest of the breed. Can someone just tell me where to buy a dog like that?
Zamp is a German Show line dog. Dead now, I think, but he has to have a lot of progeny.
There are no short cuts. You can either trust links on the internet to people's different websites, or you can go the whole nine yards and determine whether a breeder is ethical or not. We can possibly give you some names to look at, but ultimately determining whether a breeder is good enough is up to you.
ETA: there is no hurry in finding a breeder for a good pup. It is a decision that will have repercussions for hopefully 10 to 14 years. Do your research and don't rush it.
