Jax08 How about Erich Grasso in CT
German Shepherds for Sale in Connecticut (CT) | Police Dogs for Sale

I've met a couple of dogs he's imported and sold. Seems to do a nice job matching up the dogs with the clients.

Prooney [quote=Jax08;6889137]Prooney - why don't you start your own thread and list where you are, range of miles you are looking within and what you are looking for in a dog.

Here is a list of breeders in the North and East

Jax, thank you. I'm in NY so this thread has actually been helpful. I am looking for a family companion pet. Looking for a young adult that is already trained and looking to spend around $4-5k. I have plenty of time to reinforce training, but I don't have time to actually train, nor am I an experienced trainer. I have been speaking with CT K9 Services. Has anyone dealt with them?

Thank you for all the info I have been reading. Very helpful. To those that have PM me I apologize as I am not yet permitted to PM back due to being new.

Nynole1 I bought a male puppy from Jim Hill at von Wyndmoor in January from the Zwack/mask a litter. Jim was very helpful and owns an immaculate kennel and training grounds. My puppy, Ziggy von Wyndmoor (we call him Bjorn), is absolutely beautiful. I will tell you as someone who owned American show lines before, this working line dog is a COMPLETELY different animal, pun intended!
He is now almost 5 months old and is a handful. If I do not wear him out during the day, there is no sleep at night. He is a good dog but he is relentless and strong as a bull at 45 lbs already. I would be lying if I said I didn't get frustrated from time to time but he has a lot of potential to be a wonderful dog. That being said, he is a lot of work and will "challenge" me at times. My wife is not able/willing to handle him when he gets crazy, so just know there is a lot to owning a working line GSD. Good luck!

Findlay My neighbors have a Von Ledgemere Shepherd.
They were very happy with the breeder.
Their dog Roxi is gorgeous...blond and black.

Fezzik von barry We are from Long Island and we found breeders from the AKC website.
I remember there were quite a few in NJ when we were looking about a year ago. I would just contact who you are interested in and go from there.
Best of luck!

tolzersf84 Do NOT buy a GSD from Vom Benza Haus...Sheila and Peter!!! Purchased a pup tha come to find out had a bone disorder in right rear leg. They mocked me when I attempted to discribe the problem as a hard muscle, etc. "That's not a medical term" is what they emailed me back! We took the pup to our Vet within 36 hours. He had a fever of a 104.5, would not eat, had the dry heaves, loose stool, lethargic...The Vet took xrays and found a very clear bone disorder in the poor pup's leg...which was also the reason he had a fever, etc. She said he more than likely had an infecction in there, which would explain the solid mass around his right rear elbow! They were extremely rude and condescending! And...they have refused to answer any of our calls or emails to discuss the vet bill...$312...which they said and I quote...We won't stiff ya!"...Save yourselves a lot of BS and get a GSD from one of many other breeders in New England. These people are weird to boot!!

NJGirl Thank you so much again, everyone! You've given me a lot to read up on. I've contacted a few WGSL and ASL breeders to learn more about their dogs and hope to visit a few in the next few months to narrow down our choices.
