|sbigbee||Thanks, I'm so happy to hear he's a great dog. There are so many breeders it's hard to determine who has quality dogs in health, conformation, and temperament. It was easy to eliminate several breeders, ones that seem to be mass producing. Once they were eliminated there are still tons left. Jeesh!|

|VickyHilton||Yeah, pretty amused by the German caveat. Our boy is meant to be outdoors herding in a deciduous birch Forrest (or like) in Germany. Without cats.|

|lhczth||I also would recommend Blackthorn.|

Not to make light of your boys allergies, but German Cockroaches??? Better than French ones I suppose.

We LOVE our Sander-Haus dog
He has the best temperament imaginable...so tolerant and loving. He is the best companion pet ever. He does have environmental allergies (dust, cats, storage mites, red cedar, german cockroaches) and food sensitivities (lamb, beef, milk), but he is beautiful and smart and the best additional to our family.

|Xeph||There's no reason an American line can't do agility. I've done it with them. There are MACH and PACH AmLines out there. The Pinehill dogs are pretty moderate animals, and you could likely be successful with them|

|sbigbee||Thank you very much. I will research the differences and have already had a look at the website for Blackthorn. I appreciate your help. Both breeders I reference I received their names through the GSDC.|

One of the breeders you list is European show lines - the other American show lines....
I would suggest researching types before you make any commitment to any breeder....the differences between types can be as wide as choosing different breeds.
If you have any interest in any sport - I would look to working lines (European)... board member Christine Kemper has working line dogs which are partially East and West German and are going to be more suitable for your stated goals. Blackthorn Kennels in VA

I can't comment on the ones you've posted.
but the area you listed, I'd check out johnsonhaus. I'm sure others will chime in with recommendations.
