All of you have beautiful dogs. I am getting a lot of information from everyone on this board. I still have not decided on pup or a rescue/older GSD. I am afraid that if I get a puppy, it will be from a bad breeder. I am not looking to show my new dog, nor am I wanting to get certifications and all that other stuff. If I get a rescue dog, I am afraid of the dogs past. I am sorry if I am asking a lot of questions but I do not want to make a mistake. If would not be fair to my family and to the dog.
I just got the books The Dog Listener and GS for Dummies from the library. I am going to read these and then look at different dogs and breeders.
