German Sheps

Our dogs also get their first year of training with us before they go off to work with police agencies, rescue organizations, and healthcare groups. We also sell some pups to the public when they've been thoroughly screened. None of our dogs wind up chained out back of somebody's house or worse yet, as some junkyard dog. They either go into a caring home where people have an understanding of the big active dogs' needs or they go to the above listed groups who get first pick. Currently I have just one male dog and am breeding him through anouther breeder of long reputation in the area. We'll be getting a new female this Spring. Our last female was maliciously killed last Summer. It was claimed they thought she was a coyote. Yeah sure. Four times the size of a coyote and the wrong color, but if people can shoot a Jersey cow thinking it's a deer I guess they _are_ that stupid.
umm charge are the shepards for adoption or sale? ive always wanted a shepard. dont got room for one now but i know people who are interested. they are a great family with a large backyard. so please pm me with some info about your program thx.

There won't be any available directly from me, behemoth79, for quite sometime. If you re-read that post you'll see where I stated our breeding female was shot to death last year. We just received our new female. You can see a picture of her over at the "Post a pic of your dog" thread. As she's still only a pup it will be at least a year and half to two years before we breed her. When we do have pups we make up a list of those who want them. Police, rescue and disability organizations get first pick. If there are any pups left over from the litter they go to good private homes that I've checked out. They are always sold with a few exceptions. I have donated pups in the past to disabled people of limited means who have trouble qualifying for aid in buying one.

Right now I breed my male dog with another breeder's dogs. I've known her for years and she is a great person who raises excellent pups. I'll put you in touch with her if it comes to that, but may I suggest that you first try these?


These folks find homes for the far too many German Shepherds that went to the wrong people to begin with, or who have lost their family somehow.


This is a national and worldwide listing of breeders. Why by no means all breeders are listed, it is a good place to start.

I always recommend the German line over the American line. They cost about three times as much or more but they are well worth it. You can easily spend much more than the difference in price in vet bills on an American line Shepherd and the German line also lives longer.

i used to have a full-blood Brittany Spanial that I bought for less than $40. She was smart as it gets.

I had a Great Pyrenees when I was growing up. She was a fantastic dog and established my love for large dogs. Since meeting Charge though I've come to share his love of German Shepherds. They're almost human! Our new baby, Freya, is just a darling! She's really brought out the mother in me.
