100% guarantee would be to get an adult. If you get a puppy, there is a chance it won't work out.
So puppy or adult?

many places for you to consider

right off the bat I would look at working dogs , saves you a lot of time .

most important is looking for a dog that is not so hyper and prey driven .

I love those who breed for herding "von Lord Fandor" love the pedigrees

Those von Lord Fandor dogs are beautiful! Sleek and fast looking: what the breed was originally intended to do, IMO. (herd and protect flocks)

It would be interesting to see the Fandor dogs in person and meet the breeders. With their current dogs they praise their play drive and say they don't do protection anymore because of too many bad experiences with "bite-eating dogs on the herd." Since your right there Jaspar, where you have a lot of options close by, it would also be pretty interesting if you were to share what you see and decide.

Jinopo (https://www.jinopo.cz/main.php ) , has a very good reputation. Does Czech and I believe DDR dogs. If that's what you're looking for I would urge you to look into them a bit more. I am on another website and they work with Jiri. He get high marks.... Good luck.

Jaspar,
Where in Europe are you located? There are a lot of good working line breeders that will have dogs to your liking. I would do a lot of research and check out more than one breeder. I would definitely keep looking and expand your search. If you let us know where you are located we can point you in a better direction.
