OUR German Shepherd Philosophy:
Our dogs are exceptionally smart, very sound and while they can be
protective, they are smart enough to know when to be protective and when to be a
friend. This is what we believe the German Shepherd was meant to be and why we
are breeding today. Our breeding goal is to make top quality German Bred dogs
affordable to families, after-all that's where they all go anyway! We believe
the German Shepherd is the best family dog you could possibly own.
Our specialty is the traditional black & tan, black & red, solid black and
plush coated dogs. The examples below are plush coated black & red dogs.
(sometimes called "coated" dogs. Hazzard is considered "coated" dog.) We
emphasize good temperament and health above all else. No special handling
required as with some higher-strung All German bred Schutzhund dogs. No super
angled American Show dogs. Most of our dogs are oversize according to the AKC
standard and we breed for the flatter back, big bones and massive heads that are
the old-fashioned type. Our dogs are all registered AKC but we have departed
from strictly following the AKC conformation standard because of continuing
health & structure issues associated with those dogs winning in the the show
ring today. We are also in the process of departing from a strict German
standard that calls for a dog that is SO driven they can only be handled by
professional dog trainers. All our dogs can be totally trusted with children,
even our stud dog, Hazzard. Please visit our Health & Advice page or click here
for detailed information.
We Don't Breed for the below picture. If this is what you are looking for in a
German Shepherd, then we are not for you. We don't have roached backed, super
angle dogs. The picture below is an AKC Show Dog winner. We would be happy to
refer you to a breeder of this type of dog. Just ask us. See our information
page on the German vs. American split or click here.
The dog shown below is an American Bred Show Dog winner.
We don't run an exclusive web ring or condone the shunning of other breeders or
breeding philosophies. We truly
believe that you, as a prospective German Shepherd owner, just need to understand the various
types of German Shepherds there are today and make your own decision, whether it
is my dogs or another type. I am happy to recommend another breeder if our
Family Type dogs are not your cup of tea.
If you are a breeder, we need to discuss your needs as all our dogs are sold
with limited AKC registration.
Browse our site and see if our dogs match your life. Don't hesitate to contact
us if you have questions or want to get on our waiting list. Click on the
