After living in Ohio most of our lives we recently retired to South Carolina. We are still breeding and showing dogs but somewhat less than before. We've owned German Shepherd Dogs since the 1970's as family companions. We bred a few litters with our Kelly and then stopped breeding while our sons were growing up. We started showing dogs in conformation in 2005 and breeding again in 2008 for conformation at the Specialty Show quality level. Temperament has always been first and foremost in our breeding program. Health, intelligence, desire to please and structure are the rest of our priorities.
