Okay. There may be a quarantine law in NZ, so you have to consider that if you're bringing a dog
However, if you like the GSD I would spend some time visiting breeders and Schutzhund events to get a better idea of what you realistically can expect and handle.
If you are anywhere near Lansing MI, I would send you over to Cheryl Carlson
who will give you the straight skinny on her dogs. They seem to be what you're after.
