Working line puppies generally range from $1800 - $2250 and show lines generally range from $2000 - $2500.These are general price ranges and pricing can vary depending on pedigrees and individual puppies.  Prices will be listed for each litter on our website when we have a litter available.  We offer a 10% "First Responder"/Military discount (active or retired).  We also offer a $50 discount if deposits are received prior to the puppies turning 4 weeks old.  We offer a $100 REFUND if you wait to spay/neuter until the puppy is a minimum of 18 months old and a maximum of 25 months (Proof required).  Deposits can be sent at any time but will be required once pregnancy is confirmed for a place on the waiting list.  Puppies generally will be sold as "pet quality" unless evaluated as "working quality" by a professional trainer.  Most puppies would do well in ACTIVE companion homes and in homes wanting to start in club level Schutzhund (IPO) Dog sports.  All puppies come with pre-paid AKC registration, litter pedigree, micro-chipped, Up-to-Date on vaccinations, de-wormed, started on Heartguard, vet health record, puppy gift basket (bowl, leash, collar, food, toy, blanket, etc), and hip/health guarantee per written contract.  All puppies sold will be either DM "Clear" or "Carrier" - Puppies will NOT be "AT RISK" for DM per parentage.   
All puppies are sold with LIMITED AKC registration which can be converted to FULL registration once the puppy passes the required health certifications as specified in the written contract.  This is done in order to protect the German Shepherd breed from being plagued with genetic health problems due to poor breeding practices.​

ABOUT THE PARENTS
Zea Kateko, ZVV1
Imported from the Czech Republic
Hips 0/0, Elbows 0/0, DM CLEAR​​
Dam:  Zea Kateko

​​Zea is a very beautiful, dark sable German Shepherd imported from the Czech Republic.  Zea earned her ZVV1 title at a very young age, which shows her love of work and trainability.  Zea is exactly what we look for in a working line German Shepherd.  She is social and friendly yet aloof of strangers, she has an incredibly sound temperament, she has a great on/off switch, she is fun to work and train with and she is structurally beautiful.  Zea also has 0/0 hips and 0/0 elbows (the best rating given in the Czech Republic) and is also DM Clear.  She will have her AKC registration and DNA taken prior to whelp.  Zea enjoys the company of people and other dogs, going for swims, long walks and playing with her toys.  This is our first time breeding Zea and we are very excited about this litter!


Sire:  Chaos vom Haus Middleton

Chaos is the grandson of my now deceased Police K9 partner, Tex vom Erlenbush.  Chaos has a pedigree filled with famous dogs, including his great-grandfather, Asko von der Lutter.  He is a 3/4th working lines and 1/4th show lines, so he has the best of both worlds.  Chaos has an amazing on/off switch, making him the perfect family member and protector.  Chaos has been trained in personal protection and lives in the home as a family companion.  He has produced beautiful puppies for us in the past with great temperaments.  Chaos has OFA "Good" hips, 0/1 elbows and he is a DM CLEAR.  None of these puppies will be "At Risk" for DM.  Chaos has his AKC certificate and AKC DNA profile on file.  Chaos enjoys hanging out with his people, swimming, going for runs and tagging along for car rides. 

Puppies in this litter could have either stock or plush coats as both parents carry the "long coat" gene.  I suspect they will be sable or black/tan in coloring.  At maturity, males should weigh no more than 80-90 lbs and females between 60-70 lbs.​​  Puppies should have great temperaments and high trainability.  These puppies would do well in club-level protection sports, competition obedience, SAR or in ACTIVE companion homes.


These puppies will be $2000 for either males or females.  We do offer a 10% "First Responder" or active/retired military discount.  We also offer a $50 discount for early deposits (before puppies reach the age of six weeks).  For more information on these discounts, please see below or contact me with questions.​​​​​​​​
"Q" Litter Planned breeding for May 2019 with puppies being available to go home in mid-late September when 8 weeks old.

ABOUT THE PARENTS
Dam: Kenzi vom Haus Middleton

Kenzi is a very beautiful, light sable German Shepherd from both German and Czech working lines.  Kenzi's sire, SG IPO3 Winnetou vom Ritterland, was imported from Germany and was one of the strongest and smartest dogs we have ever owned.  Kenzi's dam, G IPO2 Uma z Holykova, was imported from the the Czech Republic and is a very sweet, yet protective, female.  Kenzi incorporated the best of both parents.  She is very sweet and loving but aloof of strangers.  She is very protective of her space and has intense focus and drive.  Kenzi has a very sound temperament and is filled with confidence.  She loves to splash around in water, carry her kong around the yard and going for car rides.  Kenzi has a-normal hips and a-normal elbows (certification out of Germany) and is DM Clear.  Kenzi has her AKC certificate and DNA on file.  This is our first litter with Kenzi and we are very excited to see what she produces.  

Sire: Sampson vom Haus Middleton

​Sampson is the son of my now deceased Police K9 partner, Tex vom Erlenbush. Sampson has a pedigree filled with famous dogs, including his grandfather, Asko von der Lutter. He is a nice mix of working lines and show lines, so he has the best of both worlds. He has the strengths, drives and health of the working lines and the grace and beauty of the show lines. Sampson has been trained in personal protection and lives with us in the home as a family companion. He has produced beautiful puppies for us in the past with great temperaments. Sampson has OFA "Good" hips, OFA "Normal" elbows and he is a DM Carrier. None of these puppies will be "At Risk" for DM. Sampson has his AKC certificate and AKC DNA profile on file. Sampson enjoys hanging out with his people, swimming, going for runs and tagging along for car rides.

Puppies in this litter should be stock coat (It is unlikely there will be any plush or long coats in this litter). I suspect they will all be sable in coloring, although there is a possibility for other coloring to occur.  At maturity, males should weigh no more than 80-90 lbs and females between 60-70 lbs.​​ Puppies should have great temperaments and high trainability. These puppies would do well in club-level protection sports, competition obedience, SAR or in ACTIVE companion homes.

ABOUT THE PARENTS
Dam: Karma vom Haus Middleton

Karma is a very beautiful, lighter black/tan German Shepherd from both German and Czech working lines.  Karma's sire, SG IPO3 Winnetou vom Ritterland, was imported from Germany and was one of the strongest and smartest dogs we have ever owned. Karma's dam, G IPO2 Uma z Holykova, was imported from the the Czech Republic and is a very sweet, yet protective, female. Karma incorporated the best of both parents. She is very sweet and loving but aloof of strangers.  Once she gets to know you, she will want nothing more than your attention and loves to give long-lasting "hugs". She loves to play "keep away" with her kong around the yard, keeping an eye on where her humans are at all times (she's a little bit of a stalker ... with great big ears :-)).  Karma has had her hip/elbows x-rayed and we are waiting for certification to arrive from Germany.  This breeding will be dependent upon x-ray certification results.  Karma is DM Clear by parentage.  Karma has her AKC certificate and DNA on file. This is our first litter with Karma and we are very excited to see what she produces.
