Puppies !

We are excited to announce that we have two litters planned for this fall.  The LIONHEART LITTER is sired by a wonderful red and black male (Lonnie) with a mixed german and american line background. Our all Black female Holly, will be the mom. Puppies from this litter will be limited in availability as we have been planning this litter since 2008 and plan to hold a few back for a while.  

The  second litter, the TIME TRAVELLER litter is out of a wonderful high drive american show male (Travis) and our girl Storm. Travis is not only accomplished in the show ring, but has exceled in performance activities such as herding and coursing.  This will most likely be Storm's last litter and she has produced some fantastic puppies for us including Holly. We anticipate some exciting future show and performance stars from this litter.

For more information on the available puppies and litter visit the  planned litter's page. The adoption process can be found  by following the Available Puppies link.

About The German Shepherd Dog

Origin

One of the most versatile and talented breeds in the world today, the German Shepherd Dog has been valued in police work, tracking, guiding the blind, drug and bomb detection, search and rescue, herding, avalanche rescue and so much more. In the 1890s, Captain Max von Stephanitz, a German cavalry officer, envisioned a superb and versatile herding dog and began a breeding program made up of the best German farm dogs available. He succeeded beyond all expectations. The German Shepherd Dog first came to North America in the early 1900s and got a huge boost in popularity here after World War I when Rin Tin Tin’s movie exploits captured the attention of the public.

 

Things to do With Your German Shepherd

The breed is so intelligent and learns so readily that it has been used as a sheepdog, guard, in police work, as a guide for the blind, in search and rescue service and in the military. The German Shepherd also excels many other dog activities including Schutzhund, tracking, obedience, agility, flyball, ring sport and much, much more. His fine nose can sniff out drugs and intruders and alert handlers to the presence of underground mines in time to avoid detonation, or gas leaks in pipes buried 15 feet underground. The German Shepherd is also a popular show dog and family companion.
