holmes11210 Will do Maggie. I know that GSD's are a big commitment but I think I'm up to it. I know that different breeds have different issues.

I was lucky when I was 15 I really wanted a dog but the folks gave me if you can buy it yourself you can get it. I spent a whole school year and was able to scape up $500 for a golden retriever puppy. He was in my family for 17 years.

I think I lucked out back then and found a great dog for a great price. Now that I'm older I want to do it right this time and really investigate my options.

Sounds like you have been looking thru --> http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...ind-puppy.html and that's great. The more time you can spend there and click/read all the links the better you'll do when you talk to the breeders and see the facilities.

Don't forget to see if you can talk to/email any past puppy owners too. That way you can have questions about the breeders and their dogs from people that have older dogs.

holmes11210 Thanks for the response. I have contacted 4 breeders and will be visiting the first in approx 2-3 weeks. The other 3 are waiting for litters to be born.

Should I be asking to access the facilities before they have pups?

huntergreen have you familiarized with the different lines of gsd ? working, american showline and german showline ? how many kennels have you visited? you may have found a really good breeder, but imho, it would be wise to expand your search and make sure you know what you want. educating yourself is key for optimum success.

Looking for a good breeder in Winston-Salem area of NC

I am looking for a responsible breeder in the Winston-Salem NC area. What I'm interested in is a good family companion dog. I have 2 children ages 4 and 7.

Temperament is my main focus and I do understand the GSDs have high drives and tons of energy. Color is not extremely important but I'd be lying if I said it didn't matter. I've always loved Black or Sable GSD's.

Right now I have been talking to a breeder outside of Charlotte. He does not have a website so I can't share the info with you but he has seemed truthful and forthcoming with info.

I'm not looking for a show dog, just a healthy new member of the family.
