Xeph- thanks for the info. We don't have a time frame---more about finding the right breeder and dog for us whether that's now or in a year!
Momto2GSDs- thanks for the suggestion. Do you have one of her pups? Can you PM me if you have any more info?
WateryTart-sent you a PM. Thanks!

I am not sure how far you are from Minnesota - guessing more than 12 hours. And I don't have a puppy yet so I can only speak to my screening experience (puppy will be born in '14).
But I can't say enough good things about my breeder so far, so PM me if you want more info.

Check out Alta Tollhaus.
FANTASTIC "family" blog on what all of their GSD's are up to. Her lines are very versatile! Anything from Therapy dogs to Schutzhund. Julie helps match the dog to the owners needs. Check out the FAQ page to see how she socializes them as puppies. Even has friends come in and "finger feed" the pup's their first real meal of scrambled eggs when they are 3 weeks old!

How soon are you looking? How active are you? How soon are you looking to get a pup? Next month, in Philly, the national dog show (the one aired after the Thanksgiving Day parade) will be going on.
I will be in attendance with my crew.

Any breeder suggestions?
We are looking for a family companion who is loyal, has a clear head and stable temperament. We know so much of who they become depends on socializing and training, but we want the genetics to be there too! We are not looking to do Schutzhund or agility so we don't need a high drive dog.
Based on what we are looking for, would you say German Showlines would be best for us? We like the looks of red/black saddles and strong heads.
We are located in eastern PA but are willing to travel up to 12 hours or so if it means finding the perfect family member. We would really like to go to meet the puppies, and with the help of the breeder, determine which one would be the best for us.
Thank you for your time!
