Default Breeder in Georgia

I'm a new member and just wanted an opinion on a breeder my family found in Georgia. The name is True Love German Shepherds and they are located in Newnan, GA. They seem really great and just wanted to know if anyone here has heard of them, whether good or bad it would be greatly appreciated. They have a litter that will be ready next month and we are planning on getting a male. I went through the different threads and couldn't find anything on them so I hope this hasn't been asked before. Thanks!

Lot of views no replies, maybe you have received some PM's? I googled them and apart from their own website can find absolutely nothing on them. Personally, I would not get a pup from there, but you could do much much worse.

Their website seems long on emotion and short on information. They say the dogs are from "OFA lines" but I note that the dam of the litter, Sherry, isn't actually listed as being OFA certified. She may well be, I would ask. There is some misinformation on the "German vs. American lines" page, but they can be misinformed and still breed nice dogs. (My German line dog is offended that they said American lines are prettier.)
Read the thread on Things to look for in a 'Responsible' Breeder and then call them with questions.

Their lines regarding "working" dogs as being bred for aggression bother me - as how they repeatedly state that working dogs are not for pet homes. There is an underlying truth to that - they are not for every single ordinary pet home, but I find it misleading at best.

As they breed American Lines I would recommend asking the Newnan Kennel Club, Home Page
Newnan is only about 1-1.5 hours from me and I have never heard of them, so no personal knowledge.

Thank you for the feedback. I will contact the Newnan Kennel Club and will also contact the breeder again with some more questions.

Are you in North Georgia? You arent far from Sequoyah. But I'm biased.

Sequoyah is just north of Chattanooga, right across the GA line. Worth the drive to look at her breeding program.
