Ksalrunner Thanks everyone! I have emails out to three different breeders. I'm glad I don't want a puppy until later this year. I feel like this process is going to take me awhile. He will be well worth the wait though, I'm sure.

holland I think I would buy a puppy just based on that pic-that would be a very bad reason

We are beginning our search for a German working line male puppy. We have three kids and we are looking for an excellent temperament, excellent hips and elbows, and an average drive puppy. Basically I want a trainable, fun dog who will play frisbee, fetch, take walks with the family and eventually love to go on my daily run with me. His abillity to bark and warn off strangers would be an added bonus.

We are in southeastern WI, and I would like to find a breeder in WI, or Northern Il.

Thank You!
How about

GsdLoverr729 I third Vom Gildaf!
They're one of the three WL breeders I would choose from if I decided on a WL.

Geeheim I second vom Gildaf!

Melinda, is a fantastic breeder who takes breeding very seriously. She works and knows her dogs. I 110% recommend her.

Ksalrunner Thanks for the lead, his dogs are definitely beautiful. I will get in touch and see where it leads. I contacted someone from the German Shepherd club of WI too, I am thinking those are American show lines there though. I could be wrong, just a hunch. It seems like there's a lot of farm dogs and backyard breeders in my area.
Do you have any good references on how to learn how to read pedigrees? How do I know if a line is good? How can I tell if it's a working line, or show line? I feel like this is a foreign language lol, and I really want to be educated before I start putting money down on a litter.
Thank you!!

onyx'girl This breeder in Milwaukee just had a litter(though I have no idea if they are all spoken for) He usually breeds for K9 LE, but may have a pup or know of someone else in the state that can help you.
