My lifelong dream is to have a German Shepherd, and I'm finally in the place where I can make it happen. I'm looking for a great family companion dog, but unfortunately I'm working with a budget. Looking to spend $700-$1200. My biggest concern is great temperament, followed closely by the living conditions for the dogs being bred. The last thing I want to do is support a breeder who's indiscriminately churning out puppies or treating their dogs poorly. Any recommendations of solid breeders that work within my budget? I've spent hours researching online, but I'm a total newbie at this whole thing. I'm willing to drive anywhere in Indiana, or even into Michigan, Illinois, Kentucky, or Ohio. Thanks in advance for any advice!
