Have you looked into a rescue? They will have dogs of all ages and temperament.

You can also look at Tidmores Rising Star in Oklahoma. She actually has a 9 month old female that she had held back for herself that she decided to place. Olga is a doll and very sweet. I think she would do well in therapy work from what I have seen of her. This breeder has several dogs in therapy work. You would need to check out her outside stars page and past litters.
Here is Olga's page:
My Mayhem came from here.

|SiegersMom||Mountain High Service Dogs in Colorado. I interviewed the trainer for a local publication. They placed and trained a gsd as a seizure alert dog for a young girl in our area. They raise some dogs but they also import and use breeders to find suitable dogs. They are trained for your needs and certified with you through further training. I would start here. GSD's were her favorite but they also worked with other breeds.|

Royalair in Grinnell Iowa breeds dogs which are eminently suited to therapy & service work. Her GSDs are over sized. IF that doesn't bother you it would be worth your while to contact her. I actually met with her years before I actually got a dog from her. (A stray Husky needed a home & delayed plans to get a GSD). There was never any pressure from her to get one of her pups. (Lol, one side effect of success is that the seller isn't hungry or desparate for 'new' business.)
I've gotten a pup from her & 2 adults. I've been very happy in my dealings with Robin of Royalair & supremely happy with her dogs. My next GSD will most likely be another pup & it will almost certainly be another Royalair GSD.
Doc, a member on the board, is also well worth contacting. I don't think he sells adults very oiften but he might know suitable breeders that do.

I can recommend Chris and Gail Smith in Wauconda, IL - Chimanes German Shepherds. They breed AKC showlines and my first GSDs were from them. They have nice, even temperaments!! And, they are RESPONSIBLE breeders and sometimes have older dogs available (returned for whatever reasons). They will be 100% honest with you!!
Here's my gang from them -
The Cocker was not from them.
