THANK YOU! I didn't know that Carmspack....
This breeder search is very frustrating. I don't know if it's good that so many are getting written off or if Im over-doing it considering what I actually want.
That being said the logical person in me doesn't understand the concept of settling for less very well. Hence the extensive homework I am currently doing

|qbchottu||Is Boban really OFA excellent? Never saw any evidence of this and he is not listed on the OFA database|

vom Banach was the North American owner of Boban. When the dog first arrived there was a lot of promotion for the dog , big effort to dispel the dogs "reputation" including dog posing very close and friendly with her young son (?) , (child). People that went to see the dog thought the dog was a k9 psychopath --- ended up in Shepherd Glen --- Maybe they have the knowledge to breed him well and the clients that can handle the offspring Shepherd Glen K9 - German Shepherd Breeder - Boban
isn't it something else that the dog gets an OFA excellent , can't produce anything good ???
NOT pet material

Thanks! Im new...and having a devil of a time finding a breeder.
I really didn't think it would be this hard. Not sure if Im way overthinking it or what is going on....>.< The learning curve is pretty extreme.
Im not looking for a high level dog by any stretch. Just something sane and sensible and healthy (as healthy as I can aim for with a breeding)
Was very interested in Vom Banach but I cant seem to get a hold of the breeder. Maybe I'll just focus on her as she seems to get rave reviews from the few people Ive talked to.

FRankly - it would terrify me....
1st thing to worry about is hips....the dam is from an NZ dam...and Boban is the sire of the sire....he produced very poorly for hips and elbows. The cross that produced Boban was done 3 times, and the SV would not allow the cross again. Hip production was very bad. Boban also was the object of a website and discussion forum in Germany for a few years. He failed his koerung because of temperament issues. He was not a pleasant dog and should never have been bred. He was sold to the States and reportedly unhandleable...then passed on a few times.....
He was GORGEOUS....for sure! But he should not have been used for breeding...
Anytime you have a litter that is 'high risk' - you will probably get a few pups that are fine....but you will also get a few that grow up to be - problematic.....and that is why I would pass on this cross....I don't like to gamble that well.
