sebaroher I think I'd like to get a working line. Does anyone know of any reputable breeders in/or close to Virginia? I'm not worried about working with them, I'm active duty military.. I'd like a dog I can go running with and that I can train. Keep the advice coming! I'm enjoying reading up on all this

Castlemaid There are different lines of GSDs - it helps to narrow one's choice down so people can make recommendations. All lines can make great pets in the right home, so often it comes down to personal preference.

Here is a bit more info on the different lines:

Welcome, you are in the right place for great information!

You may want to search the topics here and check out the temperament differences between working lines and show lines. Not that the working lines can't produce great companion dogs, they do, as a retiree I have two right now, have had a number of them in the past. But more often than not, they have a more demanding personality, requiring more work, more exercise, more attention... Kind of like having a precocious child, LOL.

my boy diesel just because you dont want to show doesnt mean you cant have a show dog
it is not a requirement that you show
most showlines are sold as pets anyway

Shade Are you looking for a working line GSD or show line GSD? Any other information regarding looks, temperament, and what you're planning on doing (companion, Schutzhund, agility, Rally, etc.) will help narrow down the choices There are plenty of good breeders out there but what would work for me might not work for you and visa versa

I'm new to this forum and I'm looking for a German Shepherd puppy. I had one growing up and now I'm buying my first place and I'd love to have another one. I'm located in Virginia Beach, VA so if anyone knows of any pups for sale that come from good blood lines and are registered and most importantly GOOD DOGS, let me know. Thanks!
