About Us

 I always like to have clients come over here to our house and I talk to them for about 2 1/2 hours, average, on the topic of German Shepherd Dogs and puppy ownership and experience, as well as the environment that the puppy will be going into. I have had dogs for 57 years now, all my life, and German Shepherd Dogs for 47 years, and I absolutely love the breed. I love the looks of the West German Dogs, and  I've imported almost all of my dogs directly from Frankfurt, Germany  (except Natali vom Mittelwest, who is from Chicago, but still German lineage). The dogs are black and red, (especially Zeus and Natali!), and have regular coats (not "long-coated"). Our puppies are socialized every day by myself, my wife Dawn, my sons Connor and Cary, and by the many people that come and visit daily. The more people that come into contact with the puppies, the better the puppies behave and develop, and have much more confidence.  Our Stud dog, the father of the upcoming litters, is Zeus vom Hauswalder Bach (SZ#2314605, AKC#DN45872702), who we imported from Frankfurt, Germany in March of 2016. Zeus is the son of the #1 German Shepherd Dog in the world, 4X VA1 Ballack von der Brucknerallee (Please look him up on Google search!), and he (Zeus) is a gorgeous male, just like his father. Zeus has a huge head, and a beautifully soft black and mahogany red coat. He was born in a little town just east of Frankfurt, Germany, and has his registration there (AKA Pink Papers), through the Verein Fur Deutsche Schaferhunde (S.V.eV.), as well as here in the U.S.A., through both the AKC (American Kennel Club), and the NAPR (North American Purebred Registry). He has chocolate brown eyes, a magnificent gait, and is the friendliest dog we've ever had here. His personality is his best feature. He is quiet, does not bark at strangers, is trustworthy of children of all ages, including babies, and is a very confident dog in any situation, including thunderstorms and gunfire. His temperament is very stable. You are welcome to bring your entire family over to meet him anytime you want to, as his personality has to be seen to be believed. Besides that, he loves visitors. The first of our breeding females is V3 Quenns-Luna vom Hauswalder Bach, IPO1, (SZ#2286184, AKC# DN48823601, NAPR# 2018-178273-G). Luna is a V3 titled female (IPO1) who we had imported from Bischofswerda, Germany, in July of 2016, and is the daughter of one of the 4 cornerstones of the German Shepherd breed, VA2 Quenn vom Loher Weg. Luna is going to have her puppies on October 26th, 2018. Our second breeding female is Natali Vom Mittelwest. Natali (AKC# DN40336503) is also black and red (very red), and is very friendly, if she pays attention to any strangers at all. She is more interested in squirrels than people, and has a quiet, calm disposition. You can find the Wright's Inbreeding Coefficient on Pedigree Database, which is a formula that I use to select the best, most genetically compatible parents. About our training, some of our clients prefer to leave their puppies here for an extra 30 days, to be trained. For an extra 500.00 dollars, your puppy will stay here with us, and we will train him to sit, come, know his name, stay, heel on leash, housebreaking, and crate training, along with any specialty training that the owner may need (family-specific, like manners with children or other pets, etc).
