MonsterMorgan My girl Morgan is from Hollow Hills. She is now 12 weeks and old and growing fast. Beth is one of the best.

Rottendog I just got my pup, and I have a Von Der Sauk girl. I couldn't be happier with her. Geli's drives are good, she is smart as can be and is picking up her basics in housebreaking and general obedience like a champ. She is a home dog with two older retrievers in the house. And they are all doing well together. I plan to do some competition with her for the enjoyment of it later on. I've had Rotties for many years and in most recent years, retrievers. I'm so happy to be getting back into my working dogs.

blackram_air Just realized that I misspelled one of the breeders name
Hollow Hills is correct not Hollow Hilss

blackram_air Thanks for the information, that will help us to further narrow down our search. As you know there is a lot of information to digest and it can become confusing at times. We do now that temperament is the most important priority and that sharing our home dynamic and our plans on if we would compete or show the puppy are important in helping to find the right puppy for us.

I have no experience with any of those breeders, but if you want the deep black and red coloring, you're looking at West German Showline. Working line dogs are sable, solid black, bi-color, or black and tan.

SuperG I'm probably in error but I was under the assumption that working line breeders don't really breed for "pet" dogs.....not that they can't be quality pets.

I'd look for breeders who stress temperament which complements a quality family pet....not many out there as the marketplace seems to want to hear other "priorities" first.

Thoughts on these breeders

Hello new member here but my wife and I have spent the last week and half both lurking through the forums researching GSD's. We are looking for a shepherd that will be a family dog and natural protection. We are not looking to compete with the dog. We have narrowed it down to the West German Showline or a lower prey drive working dog that has the deep red and black coloring. We would like some input on the following list of breeders we have come across and are considering. We live in South Carolina but are open to any breeder in any area.
The breeders are
Von lotta
Von der Sauk
Hollow Hilss
Banffy Haus
Oher Tannem

We look forward to all comments good or bad and any advice from the fine folks on this forum.
