The most important quality I am looking for is temperament. I am looking for a breeder that can help match my family with the right puppy. I would like a dog that can be taken anywhere very social, very trainable, good with children and other dogs. Could go for hikes with my family, runs and play with my kids outside, but also have an off switch inside the house. I would really appreciate breeder recommendations!!!

Thank you!

The dog you are describing will be one you create yourself when you start with a good foundation puppy. I would not go through a rescue at this point. But every GSD can be a challenge when they grow up; puppy biting, puberty etc. If you know how to go about it, have a good puppy and a good trainer you can do it. Or choose a different dog like a Rough or Smooth Collie for now. They tend to be gentle but protective of their family and very smart as well. If you stick with a GSD, consider the show line over the working line
