Look into Sandhill German Shepherds (he has a website). My first came from him. He is a very small hobby breeder. His Bruno x Bella cross creates some of the calmest clearest puppies. They produce black and red and sable. He also breeds with Gildaf dogs a lot. Mainly Buzz com Gildaf with his female Maya, but are mainly eastern.
My first puppy came from him four years ago and to this day he still talks to me and asks how she is doing.

I'd contact rescue groups first of all. But, if you really want a puppy, I just found another one for you:

If somebody really had their heart set on a dog with that "liver/golden" coloration and mellow temperament, I imagine it would be a lot easier to find those qualities in a mixed-breed rescue dog than a purebred GSD.
That is a fairly common coat color among shepherd mix dogs (in fact we had a dog with that appearance and a super sweet personality in our rescue just last week, although she got adopted about two minutes after hitting Petfinder), but I can't recall ever seeing that color combination produced by any of the breeders whose sites I stalk constantl... uh, I mean, occasionally glance at.

|Xeph||There was an American show line posted here, too. Definitely need to take a step back and reevaluate things that are important|

IMO, the OP should take a step back and research a bit more to narrow down priorities that will be more achieveable. He/she posted pics of wants and do not wants that don't jive with what the goals/wants as written.
In the pictures of 'wanted' types the OP has pet line Livers/goldens, bi-color working lines, sable working lines (east/west) and a West German Showline.
For this reason I really think it would help in the selection of the right pup for the OP to first learn about the differences in the lines because the pics aren't matching with the written list of 'wants' very well.
If it were me I'd first drop the color preference totally and look at the lines. Then decide which line and then if possible a color preference (I love bi-colors too!) Then look for the breeder to best match the goals within that line and be at least flexible on the puppy picking aspect if going with a trusted breeder.
Or as DaniFani suggested, go back to the breeder he/she purchased from before if possible.
JMHO of course.

|Galathiel||I think it's going to be difficult to get the coat color coupled with the personality that you want. There might be one bi-color in a litter, but it is high drive, for example. HOWEVER, considering that you are active with your dogs, a good many will be 'mellowed' in the house after sufficient exercise .. after they mature. If you can survive puppyhood, then you might have the dog you wanted.|

On the preferences that you said 'yes' too you have a pics of Working lines dogs and a West German Showline.
Maybe you should give WGSLs another look over, you may have better luck finding the temperament you want (which IMO is most important for you and your family along with health of course).
The breeders who have posted are giving you good and accurate information and mean well.
I wish you the best of luck in your puppy search.

|DaniFani||You just lost your puppy that you were very happy with, right? Why not go back to that breeder since you had such a great experience?|

|David Winners||I just read the thread twice and see no harsh words or judgement. I see a couple of breeders trying to help you out.|
