Hey! I apologize for responding so much later. Things got busy with me for a while. I don't have a dog yet but I've been doing extensive research on the German Shepherd breed. I'm pretty passionate about the breed. I know I'm not anywhere near an expert which is why I came here. I know I need help finding a good breeder. I've done so much searching on my own but I'd still love other opinions and leads on good breeders. Just to make my life easier by having a pool of knowledge to go off of instead of searching by myself, you know? I'll probably make another post telling more of what kind of temperament I want in a dog. I'm looking for a psychiatric service dog prospect. I've read that a lot of people don't recommend a GSD for a psychiatric service dog but I believe with the right temperament, training, love, care and patience I will find what I'm looking for. I'll try to make another post as soon as I can!
