|GSD07||I know nothing about showlines so take what I say with a grain of salt. I personally met one very nice showline that I loved because he had the temperament of a good working line, and he was from TeMar. I went to see the upcoming litters on their website and I liked the breeding listed there, especially that the female is titled. Very pretty dogs but again, I have no clue about their pedigrees.|

Thank you very much to all who have responded so far.
I did read everything on the forum about the two breeders I had mentioned. It seemed there might be more to tell, hence my request for PM's. Have gotten a few PM's about Mittelwest, but not Thinschmidt so far. I hope I will hear more.
Someone not on this forum mentioned a small breeder in Washington: Flood Farm GSD's. I looked at the website and watched her YouTube videos. Seems conscientious, dogs are raised on a farm and she only does two litters a year. Not much on the forum about them. They are working lines and the dam is a New Skete dog. Anyone know anything about this breeder?
As for East German lines, I really know nothing about them, so will have to research that.
Again, thanks to everyone I've heard from so far. I hope I'll hear more!

|GSD07||Have you looked into East German line dogs? You may find exactly what you want except the coat color.|

A breeder that I *do* recommend is Heidi Theis, here in Idaho. Her website is:
Theishof German Shepherd Puppies for sale in Boise, Idaho. We can ship to any state!
She breeds some fabulous dogs. And she supports her puppy buyers.

what you put in the dog is what you're going to get out,
working line, show line, mutt, rescue pup, etc.

TeMar kennels is in Oregon....I would think that would be a much better bet than the two you are citing....the breeder would be closer and the cost would be much more realistic
I haven't had a dog from any of these kennels....I know a few who have....there ARE mixed feelings about them....and also about the two you mention....
Just geographic and economic factors made me think of this one....I "know" the owner from forums and such....I know there were some major family upheavals health wise a few years ago....what she is breeding now??? No clue...but between the 3....I'd say to at least look into her

I don't have any personal experience with either of these kennels, but they've both been discussed previously on this board, and the Mittelwest threads in particular seem to have a lot of good input from people who do have personal experience with the kennel and their dogs. So, if you haven't done it already, I'd suggest starting with a search on those names.
Both kennels do look to have beautiful dogs.
