I'm looking for a good breeder of Import lined shepherds or a good breeder overseas to import from. I hear horror stories all the time of people getting scammed whether it be from the actual dog or paperwork. I'm looking for a young adult who has started training or at least has the potential to train. I would be willing to look at puppy if I found the "right" one. It doesn't matter where they are located just that they are reputable. Thank you for any and all help.

Why do you want to import? There is nothing overseas that cannot be had here

I would prefer to buy in the United States. I'm looking for a working prospect. I'm just looking for a breeder referral of Import lined shepherds.

Can you elaborate? Working lines? West German show lines? Why imported?

I'm looking for strictly working lines. We've always dealt with import lines and it's what we know and love. I have a Czech female who starting SAR training but my husband is in law enforcement and is looking for more personal protection prospect.

"Import lines" is pretty vague though. You mean a dog that was actually imported, or a dog bred from dogs that were imported? Most working lines are basically import lines since they tend to come from European breedings within a 1-3 generations. Breeders that are exclusively breeding dogs imported directly from Europe narrows it down a bit but even these dogs aren't much different pedigree-wise than most good working lines being bred in the USA.

I am located in Central Ohio. I'm looking at either the dog could be from imported parents or an import. I want a breeder who actually works their dogs not just breeds them. I would like a young adult or older puppy to be able to see what potential the dog would have in a law enforcement setting.

Even with a puppy, look at what the parents have already produced that is credentialed...this is not hard to verify
