Looking for a working line GSD around East Central Ohio

Iím looking for anyone who has actual experience with a particular breeder. I live in the middle of puppy mill country and I absolutely want a proven and healthy dog. Iím new to GSDs and would really like to find a breeder that knows their pups well enough and spends the time with them that they pick the pup for you according to what I want from the dog. Iíve searched so much my head is spinning. Any recommendations to check out would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I would look at von der Gill Haus in Ohio. I have no direct experience with him, but know he has been breeding German Shepherds from strong lines for many years with the goal of producing dog capable of police work.

Do you have any in mind yet or are you looking specifically for suggestions?


Also, what are you looking for specifically? What are your goals for your future puppy/dog?

Well, Iíve contacted two places in the last couple days and I canít get a response. Iím not going to mention who because people are busy and Iíll give them some time.

I have a few places I am interested in. (1) is Vom Haus Weinbrand (2) Vom WestHaus
(3) Von Der Gill Haus

I doubt I will compete with the dog. I have lost both my boxers to old age in the last year and a half. I want a companion that will be able to go anyplace with me. We live in the country and I work from home. Iím with my dogs all day almost every day. I need a watch dog to let me know if something goes bump in the night. We have a pool that I would like the dog to enjoy. My wife and I try to walk a couple miles every day we can. I miss when the boxers were younger and could simply spend an hour playing fetch. I want a dog that is capable of being rock solid on obedience. Thatís why I have gravitated towards a working line dog. Our kids are grown but still here at our house a lot and grandkids are starting to arrive. We have an active house and lifestyle to say the least.

Maybe these dogs are too much for what I am wanting? Iím more concerned with health and temperament than I am about a show winning appearance. The boxers were great dogs for my kids when they were growing up but they were not brilliant. They arenít know as being clowns for nothing. I would just like a dog that is a thinker I guess.

Am I looking in the wrong place for these qualities? If so, what direction should I head in?

I’m not set on any breeder at the moment. I haven’t even been able to speak to one yet. ��
