German Shepherd Puppies and Adult Dogs

Ron has been actively breeding and raising German shepherds since 1978. I started my breeding program with a couple of German shepherds that I purchased from a local well respected American show dog breeder. After a period of time I realized I was producing dogs that looked good in the show ring, but did not have the working ability that most people wanted in a German shepherd. After all if you want a large breed dog like a German shepherd you most likely want a dog that will be good with your family and that can at least alert you when strangers are coming.

This realization prompted me to introduce a German import working line to my breeding program. I found that even some of the working lines can be too much for the average person. After many years of perfecting my breeding line I feel we finally have found just the right balance. We feel this even-tempered line is the ultimate "family dog": Calm, not high strung, has the ability to protect but not overly aggressive and easy to train like a Golden Retriever because of their strong desire to please.
