I did eventually hear back from all the breeders I listed in my Oct. 16 post. I wound up going with Kleinen Hain Kennels, in Kentucky, getting a black 12 week old female of Czech parents.

I have seen alot of Haus Gill dogs in companion homes....they are usually stable, low to medium drive, and good looking....he is not breeding for sport dogs which most of your other choices concentrate on.....sport bred dogs are usually going to be a higher drive, prey driven animal..........few are bred for balance as that type of dog is not a "point dog"............the pups he does not feel are LE candidates make good companion dogs...

there are many many many people breeding for sport dogs....breeding "big name" dogs....and yet some of the big name dogs have characteristics that are totally counter productive to being a stable companion dog. So be careful....

This is exactly what Iím hoping for. I have searched so long I was starting to second guess myself. Iím definitely looking forward to getting a pup and starting to work with it.

Thanks again to everyone who offered opinions and advice.
