|Liesje||Isn't Crooked Creek in Missouri? I do not have a dog from there but I get the impression that Karen is very reputable. Not all the dogs are titled, but I think she breeds good stock and I know multiple people have gone back for another dog which speaks volumes to me. Again, no first hand experience but definitely a breeder I'd check out.|

Thanks again to everyone for the continued suggestions. I'm looking into them all and making decisions from there.
It'll still be a while before I can get a little pup pup. I will be checking rescues more towards the time of adoption, but I am wary of buying from classifieds. While these dogs also need rescuing, I would prefer to either support a good cause (rescue) or avoid puppy mills and BYBs by going to a reputable breeder.
And yeah, Jakoda and fastdogs, it is really disheartening to see people doing things like that As an interesting aside: I noticed that she runs a dog transport service?

here's the ad, she's in branson mo... Seems like they are looking for a good home, but the part about getting rid of her so they can get a new puppy kind of annoys me. But then again, if they don't want her, she's better off looking for a new home that wants her.
Meet Mercedes. Date of Birth 4/11/2007 (6 Years Old) - AKC registered. She is OFA Good Hips, Normal Elbows and DM negative. She has been spayed. She does great with other dogs and cats, loves kids, all around a great dog She has been using a doggie door to go in and out, but a little work and I'm sure she would be fine if left out inside. Also crate trained. Knows basic commands. We would love to keep her, but are wanting to get a new puppy. We will guarantee to take her back should anything ever happen and you can't keep her. $100 fee to ensure she goes to a good home. Vet reference required.

check out rollanet classifieds online- rolla's about an hour and a half west on I-44 but get classifieds from all over that area, including Ft. Leonard Wood. There was recently a female German Shepherd looking for a home- the ad stated the owner would like to keep her but wanted to get a new puppy. She was spayed.

I own a shepherd whose sire was Rocco Vom Mittlewest. They run a great breeding program having bred and raised several us shutzund champs. These are working dogs, though, with high drives. I couldnt be happier with my girl. Good luck with your search.

Heidi, checked and replied!
Deldridge, I checked it out and have added it to my list. Thanks a bunch. It seems a bit smaller than the others I listed, which could be a good thing.
Mego, I've definitely seen that fear secondhand. Have you had any problems with it? I'm assuming it's because of STL city's crime problem. :\ On one hand, I hate the negative GSD stigma, but on the other, as a young lady living alone... it does help.
