Hello! I am new to this site and I have to say that I love it! :D

I am hoping to purchase a puppy in the near future, and was wondering if anyone had any breeder suggestions. This puppy would primarily be a companion, but I would also like to do therapy work with her as well.

I love White Shepherds and I have found a breeder in Indiana, but I haven't decided if I want a White Shepherd or a black and tan or pure black Shepherd. Of course, temperment comes before coat color.

So, does anyone have any suggestions or breeders in mind?

Thank you :)

Isn't Chris Wild located in Michigan?
Gail Bauer-Royale Shepherds for West German Show Line and Chris Wild-Wildhaus for West German Working Line...both in Michigan, both very knowledgable & responsible breeders regarding health, and both work and title their dogs in Schutzhund. Read my signature block and you know I would highly reccomend either kennel depending on what you're looking for in a GSD.

I bought the largest pure black male of a litter from an ad in The State Journal here in Lansing. He was $150 and has been a pure joy so far. He's 6 weeks old, 70 pounds, and as cute and well behaved as can be. He's caught 3 opposums so far in the back yard and brought them to the wife :) He hauled a huge tree that I had cut down into my garage as a gift for me...lol My 4 and 5 year olds play with him constantly. He doesn't have papers, and was bought from a lady that breeds her large GSD female to her brother's huge black male. We don't care about papers, and neither does he. It's funny. People think rescue GSD is good, expensive AKC GSD is good, but one with no papers is to be avoided..:nono: Here is a pic of him:

Nice shiny Tractor Supply 4Health dog food coat on him for sure! Nice size for 6 weeks.

You caught me. He's not 6 weeks old. 6 Months. His momma is kinda big, his daddy is a monster. On the kinda not right GSD growth chart that is all over the web he was small at 3 months. Now the chart says he should be 50 pounds, and he's 70. I got him when our house got broken into. He's got a nice bark already, but isn't protective much yet. In a couple more months I think he'll be just the ticket for some loser crawling in the window. He's well behaved, I don't have to crate him when we are away for 2-3 hours...:)

I think her dogs are beautiful! My next dog will probably be from this kennel! Great options in Michigan you have, very jealous lol.
Kelly has beautiful dogs. I am acutally getting a pup from the Askia and Zavien litter which is due next week. So excited!!!

Kelly has been great to deal with and very professional. I don't think there are many breeders out there that are as personable as Kelly. I have recieved lots of updates from her about the pregnancy that I think most larger breeders would not do. Plus she is very knowledgeable about her dogs. I would definitely recommend Boeselager.

I know, and thank you! I have quite a few books on GSDs, plus I don't plan on getting one for quite a while (I want to be sure I know as much as I can about the breed). I know that there are a lot of things I need to look into, such as researching the breed, the breeder, physically visiting the kennels, checking out parents, and such.

I am excited for the day I get my own GSD and thank you again everyone for the suggestions and advice. :)

My Echo came from Gail Bauer at Royale Kennels in Lakeport; I couldn't be happier. Echo is everything I told Gail I wanted: healthy, loyal, smart, solid temperament, beautiful black and red coat. We've earned 3 AKC Obedience titles as well as CGC and Therapy Dog certifications, she is great with people (especially kids), and I couldn't ask for a better example of a great friend. Plus: Gail is always available to chat, to answer questions, and to give advice. She maintains life-long relationships with the families who have her puppies; my next GSD will also be a Royale girl.
