My husband and I bought a 6 month old female from Heidelberg in November 2008, she will be 3 years old in May and has been the best dog we could have ever hoped to buy. Typically, we adopt but we both agreed we would really love a GSD and honestly, Heidelberg has always had such nice dogs. I will admit I have never heard anything good said about them and when I tell people that is where she came from they are shocked. But I think its time someone gave them a good review! They were decently nice people and their dogs are top of the line. The GSD we purchased has been 100% healthy and the BEST personality, protection, and companion dog. I would buy from them again!
