I'm looking for an experienced west German showline breeder within the continental US. We have 4 shepherds right now all from the same breeder, but 3 have genetic health issues. One has a heart defect, one has hip dysplasia, and one has soft (floppy) ears due to a lack of cartilage. We've been burned pretty bad with these dogs so obviously we will not be buying from there again (still very much love the dogs of course). We are going to make sure to do our homework better by asking to see x-rays and genetic testing of at least the parents before considering buying a puppy. We have a full house right now so we won't be getting another dog for a while but I want to start looking into different breeders proactively. Drop your recommendations below!
