We are loving Duchess!!! She is quite a character and keeps us amused. Everywhere we go people stop us to comment on what a beautiful shepherd she is. When we first went to puppy class the trainer told us she was to advanced and needed to be in the intermediate class. Obviously I'm a proud momma.

We decided not to change his name and let it stay as Bax. Thank you for providing us with such an outstanding puppy! This puppy has a strong drive and is not afraid of anything or anyone. He has great intelligence and is willing to learn new things. He is also beautiful and looks like both his mother and father. One day he will be a loyal and protective companion. Thank you for such an outstanding puppy!!

Bella is getting very big. We love her. My husband complains that I never spoiled our other dogs like this one. She goes almost everywhere with me. I'm very happy that I chose to get her that day. She is "Bella" wonderful. Thanks for working with me to make it happen. I would recommend you to anyone looking for a German Shepherd Dog.

All in all I've got to say that I really think we got the best dog - thanks SO much for your recommendation - he's PERFECT for us. He's exactly what I wanted - a good middle of the road dog who isn't timid, but also not overly aggressive. He's a good solid dog who doesn't over react and recovers quickly from 'negative/scary' things. Right now he's still rather hyper, but when he gets regular exercise he also calms down beautifully and I can tell when he's an adult he's going to be the best companion. And speaking of beauty - he's GORGEOUS! You remember how much I wanted the black and red that his dad has? He's grown into that! But he's also got this beautiful silver from his mom - he's just striking! And in the last week his ears have finally solidified and he's really a very handsome fella. I'll have to get some recent pictures of him and send them to you. But I'd better stop here or I'll ramble all day about what a great dog he is. Thanks, again. I'm SO glad we picked you as our breeder and SO glad we took your advice on Blue - he's the perfect fit.

I just wanted to tell you again how great Marit is. At puppy class she is a star. She just learns so quickly. The trainer told me that Marit is surprisingly confident for a German Shepherd puppy. There is another German Shepherd in the class who is a month older than her and he won't leave his owners side to do any of the stay commands or even play with the other puppies. Marit has no such problems, she jumps right in and has a ball. I am happy to report that Marit and my cat are finally getting along, which is a huge relief. By the way I was wondering, Marit weighs about 30 lbs. Is that normal or is she small for her age? The vet said that she looked to be a healthy size but I was just curious. Thank you again for such a wonderful girl.

Brandy is getting bigger. She loves driving in my truck and is not afraid of water. She is very protective and loyal. She has the special 4 colors black, tan, white and red. Thanks for a beautiful German Shepherd.

Just a note to let you know that Ando has been doing great. He is a very quick learner and loves attention! I thought that it would have been difficult to match the intelligence of our past GSD but I believe that Ando will be equal if not greater in intelligence and willingness to learn new things. At seven months, Ando is about 60 pounds with a beautiful dark and shiney coat. His dark eyes are full of interest and alertness. He has fully intregrated himself into our lives.
Of the GSDs that we have had in the past, Ando is the most socialized and friendly dog we have ever had. Of course, his GSD's characteristics come out when uninvited strangers come up to "his" fence! Even then, a "come" and "quiet" command will settle him down.
Thank you for providing such an outstanding GSD puppy for us!

I bet you've been wondering how this big boy is doing.
It took a couple of weeks to get used to having a giant baby in our home. Adonis(Donny) has a very nice temperament and learns very quickly. He's affectionate and loves to shake and play in the spinkler. I have a roll of film to develop, just haven't gotten to it. We call him "Our little pony". He weighs about 55lbs and has adjusted his own eating schedule, no longer eating breakfast but opting for mid-afternoon chomping. He and the cat just can't seem to get along, however we work around it. So far he's eaten a couple pairs of shoes and is always stealing our socks. We have learned to put things away from him.
He's very comical and can put his snout right on the table to see what's new. He thinks the birdbath is his own personal drinking spot, not having to bend down at all for a gallon of water!
I met a male that is over a year and looks very much like him. Gives me an idea of how big he will be, even though I think he is more like his mom in build.
We are going to obedience classes, he needs some guidance...
I must say he hardly ever barks, when he does it is impressive.
We adore him!!

Hello Mysti and family!
We have chosen to keep Anke's name - "Anke". He is now 17 weeks old and has started basic obedience training. We are amazed at how quick and smart he is! He's very intelligent, house broken, crate trained, and at last vet check, weighs 39 lbs.!
Anke is a constant companion to our 7 year old son, Joey, and they quickly became best friends! He gets along GREAT with our 11 year old German Shepherd, Heidi and our Maine Coon cat. He has been a great addition to our family and we couldn't be happier with him.
It was great that we found a local breeder! You always took the time to answer our questions and concerns and we appreciate that. We would highly recommend you to someone that was looking to purchase a German Shepherd puppy. We also know that if a question or concern arises in the future, we can still contact you and discuss these issues with you. That's a great feeling!
We want to thank you, and your family, for being so gracious in letting us come over and see Anke,(it seems like a million times,) before we were able to bring him home! That made all the difference to us! Thank you so much for the opportunity to own Anke, he is going to grow up to be such a beautiful dog! We'll keep in touch!

We are very happy with Gabi, she is a wonderful dog. She is beautiful and you couldn't ask for a better temperament in a dog. She is great with all nine of my nieces and nephews, even the youngest who is only 10 months old. She knows she has to be gentle with him. She just wants anyone and everyone to love her.

Here's some pictures of Asko, we call him Conner. He is changing so fast. We think he is the perfect dog. He is loveable, smart, easy to train and is becoming a good friend to the cat. I keep telling Will, Conner is enough for now.
