I am looking for a straight back German Shepherd breeder within 500 miles of Maryland (can also be in Ontario or Quebec). Ideally, I'd like a puppy:
  1. exposed to multiple environments and children,
  2. OFA Certified and/or PennHip,

I have experience with German Shepherds and am looking for a companion dog.

Thanks for any help!

Straight backed is a BYB term.... A GSD's back is straight, but in a stack position will have a slope from the withers to the croup... I'd suggest looking at breeders who train and title their dogs, and have official health testing on the parents, then ask how they socialize and what all they do with their puppies.

You will have to OFA certify or do PennHip for your puppy yourself, not the breeder. As well as expose your puppy to children and environments. There are tons of good breeders near Maryland, you need to define some real criteria so the forum members could help you.
