Von Shap Females

A Descriptive Showcase of Our Von Shap Females.

More information about each dog can be accessed by clicking on their image in the Showcase above or by scrolling down.

The German Shepherd is a large, intelligent, protective, and very versatile dog used by Police, Search and Rescue, Seeing Eye, and as a loyal and protective family companion. Our bloodlines are Top Quality and we breed for the "Total" German Shepherd capable of a variety of tasks. They have a fun and loving temperment paired with the natural instinct to give your family the protection you should have with a German Shepherd in your home. If you want a truly exceptional companion/guardian/show/competition prospect then look no farther than a Von Shap Haus German Shepherd.

Standards Of Excellence.

In our breeding program, we are dedicated to breeding and raising Top Quality dogs.

These are the standards that sets Von Shap apart from the rest! Our philosophy is a Sound Mind in a Sound Body.

If you are looking for a cheap, purebred puppy, you can easily find one in local newspapers and backyards. These puppies are at a lower cost because they are from inexperienced, under-educated, and possibly uncaring breeders looking to make a few quick bucks on puppy sales. They don't have the parent's health tested and pedigree is of little or no importance. These puppies often have temperment and/or health issues which cost the owners much more over the lifetime of the dog; if they don't end up in the local pound or Humane Society shelter.

Our dogs are temperamentally sound and health tested prior to breeding for Genetic Hip Dysplasia and Degenerative Myelitis. In addition all of our dogs are from heart healthy lines thus ensuring your new pet has the best possible chance of being free from serious genetic conditions that afflict the German Shepherd breed.


Beauty in Motion

At Von Shap, our desire is to produce a beautiful companion with healthy conformation. Although we do show some of our dogs in conformation, we DO NOT breed for extreme angulation as seen in the AKC show ring. This body style is a gross distortion of the dog's natural and healthy angulation, and the judges and breeders that promote it are doing this great breed a terrible injustice.

The German Shepherd was meant to be a breed capable of many jobs and should have the body style and stamina to be competent in Search and Rescue, Obedience, Tracking, Herding, etc.

 

Great Family Companions

Our dogs are NOT HIGH DRIVE.

We breed for a moderate activity level and calmer disposition, ensuring your German Shepherd has the willingness and ability to be as active as you want him/her to be without the constant need to be engaged or worked. Your Von Shap German Shepherd will be just as happy snuggling on the couch with you as they will be hiking, playing fetch, or running with you on your morning jog.We breed for a moderate activity level and calmer disposition, ensuring your German Shepherd has the willingness and ability to be as active as you want him/her to be without the constant need to be engaged or worked. Your Von Shap German Shepherd will be just as happy snuggling on the couch with you as they will be hiking, playing fetch, or running with you on your morning jog.

Many of the German Working lines are extremely high drive, requiring a great deal of training and constant supervision to keep the minds and bodies of these dogs happy and healthy. These dogs make great police dogs but are not a good choice for the average family.


Our German Shepherd Puppies from Birth to Weaning

The birth of a litter is celebrated at Von Shap. One or more family members are in constant attendance to assist the mother and welcome her precious babies into the World.

Puppies are handled from the moment of birth and socialized with visits from a select group of family friends and children as they grow. they are started on ground venison and goat milk at around 2 weeks of age and gradually introduced to Victor Kibble. Puppies stay with their mother until 8 weeks of age. This is important to ensure appropriate development and cognitive function.

At 7 weeks of age the puppies will be assessed using a personality test called the Volhard Puppy Aptitude Test. This test is a great indicator of a pup's confidence level, degree of dominance or submissiveness, and social interaction. It is also the Go To Test used by Law Enforcement, Search and Rescue, and other elite organizations as it is a reliable indicator of a pup's willingness to work for his master. we use this test to ensure our puppies are matched up appropriately with their new owners/homes.

All puppies will have been wormed several times to guard against parasite infection and will receive their first shots before leaving for their new homes.

All puppies are sold with AKC Limited (Non-Breeding) registration and include a contract with hip/heart/general health guarantees.
