German Shepherds are a great and much loved breed of dog, known for particular traits and characteristics; loyalty, obedience, intelligence, bravery. This is certainly true of German Shepherds bred in their native Germany where strict standards of lineage are enforced. Unfortunately, no such standards exist in the USA meaning buying a German Shepherd here can be fraught with problems.
Interbreeding and lack of proper health checks can cause health problems both physical and mental. Whether the dog is intended as a loyal family companion or a worker, as a breed GSDs are known and desired for their physical and mental prowess. To be able to trust your dog to perform physical tasks, behave around children, interact positively with other dogs it is important to know that your investment in time and money is not going to waste.
Finding a dog registered with AKC as pedigree is by no means a guarantee that their parents have had health checks, fitness for purpose tests, tests of character or temperament.
It is the responsibility of you the buyer to check the paperwork the breeder has available.
Vom Felsenberg German Shepherds is a small dedicated kennel who is planning to breed up to three litter each year of German Shepherd puppies. We try to breed as closely to the 'breed standard' as possible; however we will never compromise temperament and health for 'fashion'. We firmly believe that a good temperament in the German Shepherd Dog is of paramount importance and our adult dogs and youngsters visit our local home care agencies, where we do voluntary work. The dogs bring so much pleasure to the local residents, many of whom have had their own dogs in the past.
