Do you have any puppies?

No, never. Well, hardly ever. In 2014, I had two sets of litters that I pulled from shelters due to neglect and medical concerns. When I posted the puppies on the website, I had a hard time managing all the inquiries. There were so many disappointed families because there were only 14 pups total and over 40 applications. I've learned and frankly understand that when a person or family wants a GSD pup, then gosh darn it, they are going to get one.

Interested adopters state that they want a pup because they have children an

This particular boy I named Hero was classified as "Use Caution" which creates waning concern after pulling hundreds under this same advisement. Any one who is familiar with the GSD in shelters, know they are extremely stressed and can present alarming behavior. I have lost count of the number of shepherds who showed teeth, growled, lunged at the kennel gate, who ultimately were adopted and are now incredibly loved. These dogs were g
