(Above) are all the tests we have available to TEST for. Our German Shepherds are all tested for the above before they are ever bred or allowed to produce a litter!
1) Jump on any search engine and type in "Degenerative Myelopathy in German Shepherds" and read about it. See if this is something you want to risk your puppy having later in life. Better known as "DM" this disease is a Death Sentence to any German Shepherd that has it. Unfortunately, many DO NOT test for this disease. We do Test! We breed selectively to help prevent this terrible disease from being produced in our dogs and puppies.
2) OFA - Hip Testing. All of our German Shepherd dogs are OFA HIP CERTIFIED. X-Rays are taken and submitted to the OFFA for testing. Then graded. Fair, Good or Excellent. All are passing grades. Dogs can also be rated Moderate, Mild and Severe Hip Dysplasia. (Those dogs are NEVER and should NEVER be BRED)
We love this breed. We have been breeding German Shepherd dogs for over 16 years.
All of our puppies come with lifetime breeder support. AKC full registration. Micro-chipped and twice vaccinated before leaving into new homes after 8 weeks of age.
We have (Working Line - Sable, Black and Black Sable Puppies.)
We have (West German Line - Black and Red and at times Long Coat Puppies)
We love all the Lines and Pedigrees of the German Shepherd. Each had it's strong points and some weaknesses. We pair dogs to produce the most healthy, strong and sound in mind and temperament dogs.
Our puppies are scent detection dogs, SAR dogs, Personal Protection dogs and MORE!
Some have been sold into herding homes and others for PTSD Service dogs.
The German Shepherd breed is very versatile.
