Thanks for the advices everyone
Good for you! I think you'll be glad you waited for the right pup, they become such a huge part of your life, it's worth waiting for the right one. A bad one can end up being a nightmare, and a nightmare you're stuck dealing with for years and years.

So many people ignore that advice, I'm really glad you chose to hold off. I'm sure you'll have no trouble finding the perfect pup.

weberhaus Timsar- I think in this case you made a good choice since it sounds like this person does not really know what they were doing.
If you let people know were you are located they may be able to help you find a breeder who might be able to help get you a pup that is suitable for your needs and home.
I wish you all the best in your search

Great! You might have just have saved yourself lots of money, headaches and heartaches. It is to your benefit to stack the deck in your favor by going with a breeder who actually OFAs their stock, cares enough about the puppies to turn away buyers, and will ensure the pups get the right socialization at that early age with their litter mates before being shipped off to their new homes.

Great decision! You won't regret it

Keep learning about the breed and figure out the traits you want in a pup. Be able to give an honest and detailed request to a breeder on what you want and your goals. Dont say you want a sport prospect dog if you can't commit to the cost and time involved. A great breeder can then match you with the pup that is the best fit for you.

Excellent decision. Good luck with your search!

huntergreen skipped the second page, the breeder you are looking to deal with is either a puppy miller, byb or just doesn't know what he/she is doing. seems like quite a gamble. go out and meet other breeders, you will see a big difference.

Are rescue GSDs safer to adopt than a breeder like this?
I think a good rescue is a safer bet. The dogs are in foster homes, so you can get an idea about their temperament, and healthwise, some things may be discovered after a year or two or more.
