If wherever you got your first German Shepherd was still producing German Shepherd puppies, would you get your next GSD from that person or organization?

I voted: No, while we were satisfied, we currently are persuing a different type of GSD.

We will be looking at another puppy in about 3yrs but will be looking for a working line.

Absolutely, in a heartbeat!

And often, the measure of a reputable and responsible breeder is not just how happy and satisfied the new owners are when everything goes well, but how the breeder is willing and ready to step in and assist and make things right when things don't go all that well.

LOL, I made the poll and did not make a slot for my own experience. I put it in No, not a bad experience, but now I do not want to promote...

Frodo was not a "terrible" dog. As he was my first, some of his problems were probably my fault. He was all wrong for me, too hard, too high strung, too aggressive, too stubborn. He was a flat backed, drop eared bi-color that everyone asked if he was a lab. So, I could have put that I was looking for different lines.

And, I did not really have a bad experience with this breeder. The litter was sheltered in a garage and under a junk car. I handed over $150 and he gave me the papers and the 10 week old pup. He even told me he wasn't sure that this lot's ears will come up or not. So, I bought an AKC pup and that is exactly what I got.

Maybe if I spent more than ten minutes in the guy's presence, I could tell you all the abominable things that he bred for or did not test or care about, but the fact is, I haven't a clue. Only, the guy did not worry for one second what I wanted the dog for, or how I would provide for the dog. I can only add it up to someone who I would not at this point promote. And studying his pedigree, well, I do not see that the dog was anything but a back-yard bred American pet line/German working line cross that had no rhyme or reason why they put the dogs together save for the $150 per puppy.
