|Makobytes||My last post was not meant to single you out beladonnalily I made a previous post and let it go. You bring up an interesting point in regards to large breeders. Some breeders are viewed as large due to their success and not due to the number of dogs they have.|

Mako sorry if I ruffled feathers. I was just simply commenting that I got an interesting result when I googled a breeder. Not sure why it would have been different if I'd been referring to a small breeder? FWIW, the large breeder referred to IS local to me, so the information would influence my decision although I would certainly not rule them out entirely based on that alone. I would expect a certain number of "bad" reviews with a large breeder...I guess that was my point with preferring a small breeder personally.
I in no way meant it as a bash on the large breeder. I just think its like everything else...customer service will be different based on the size of the operation. To each his own.
No one has any problem commenting about small "byb" operations like the one the OP mentioned. Not sure why we can't comment on the well-known ones when they are brought up by someone else.

|Makobytes||The OP needs to consider the knowledge of those offering advice and weigh if it comes from first hand experience or comes from surfing the web. Viewing websites of those offering advice will give you an idea if their vision of the breed is the same as yours. Visiting kennels will give you the opportunity to see if what you are being told has any merit as long as you do not fall for cute puppy syndrome and buy from the first breeder you visit. Above all do not buy a puppy because you feel sorry for it or you will be paying for more of the same being done to other puppies.|

Mailo doesn't do it for me at all, but that is my opinion. Neko, I saw Chacco is in the states now as well. Love him. I'm sure the stud fee for him is horrifically high, which means I won't get to use him.
That said, there are two BEAUTIFUL males (sired by Chacco) from U litter av Thorarinn that are now in the states as well!!

|Makobytes||Good post Zeph, I thought Nino was being kept in Germany. You will have to excuse me but I like what I see in Mailo and what he produces. The dog has really nice working abilities, has super athleticism and proper temperament. This dog is in a doable driving distance from the OP.|

|Makobytes||Belladonnalily I assume in your last post you are referring to a local establishment close to you and not the breeder in question, in all fairness you probably should not be repeating things you see on the internet that come from unknown sources and drawing conclusions that you do not have any personal knowledge. The breeder in question stands behind her word and does a lot of good work in the German Shepherd Dog community including work with local rescues and humane societies. This breeder understands temperament, structure and bloodlines at a very high level and has a lot of satisfied repeat clients.|

Gorgeous dog Neko! I'm nowhere getting another pup...I'm just working on learning so I get the best I can. Mine is 8mo now and awesome but a handful. I guess I'm drawn to smaller breeders...being able to text pictures and chat on the phone is a nice bonus for me. And it was nice as someone new to the breed to not feel intimidated.
