Our working line puppies generally range from $1800 - $2500 and show lines generally range from $2200 - $3500.  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 once we have a litter available. Deposits are required in order to be placed on the waiting list and are non-refundable, although deposits can be transferred to another upcoming litter, if requested or if there are not enough puppies in a litter to accommodate everyone on our 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 heart-worm medication, 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.​ 
Deposits are $500.00 and are non-refundable.  We accept Paypal Payments for DEPOSITS ONLY - remainder must be paid in cash or check.  If you wish to pay in full using Paypal, this can be done per arrangement and will require the service fees be paid by the customer.  We do accept full payments via cash, check, Venmo and Zelle.  Prior to leaving a deposit, please review our Puppy Contract and complete the Puppy Application to ensure that we can fulfill your requests.

​​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 go 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.

​​Sire:  Havoc vom Haus Middleton

Havoc is the great-grandson of my now deceased Police K9 partner, Tex vom Erlenbush. Havoc has a pedigree filled with famous dogs, including the 2000 working dog champion, Asko von der Lutter.  Havoc has a nice on/off switch and can go from fierce protection dog to sweet, cuddly family pet.  This is Havoc's first time mating, but his sire, Chaos, has produced several great litters.  We are hoping that Havoc will follow in his father's footsteps and produce sound, healthy and confident puppies.  Havoc enjoys playing fetch, chasing passing cars and socializing our puppies.  Havoc has a-fast normal hips and 0/1 elbows.  Havoc is DM Clear and all puppies should also be DM Clear by parentage. Havoc has his AKC certificate and AKC DNA profile. Havoc is very territorial of his home but is friendly with guests when his parents are home.  When we are not present, we know we can count on him to keep our home safe.  
      ​
This is a repeat litter.  The first litter resulted in 11 puppies (six males and five females) and this litter had nine puppies.  Based on the last litter, we expect puppies in this litter to all have stock coats (short hair).  We have sables and black/tan puppies available in this litter.  At maturity, males should weigh no more than 80-95 lbs and females between 65-80 lbs. These puppies should have higher food/prey drive and have a nice on/off switch.  I suspect that these puppies will be very well suited for IPG and protection work.  Puppies should have social, confident temperaments with high trainability and would do best in active homes with German Shepherd/working or herding dog experience.  We were very happy with the last litter and would be happy to supply photos if interested. 

Please call 541-900-4330 or email at dlhk9tex@yahoo.com for specific litter/puppy pricing.  We provide a $200 discount to military veterans and first responders (police/fire).

"A2" Litter whelped 06/06/2022
NINE PUPPIES WHELPED - TWO MALES STILL AVAILABLE NOW
AEROES - Formerly Brown Collar Boy 
    AEROES is a medium energy puppy that has great focus and drive.  He has a nice "off" switch when inside and loves just hanging out with his people and chewing on bones.  This guy LOVES splashing around in water and may be a great candidate for dock diving.  He should be easy to train and will do good in most households, including those with children.  He does good in the house, on leash and is crate/kennel trained.  He does not need midnight "potty breaks" anymore.  He's housed with and exposed to multiple dogs.  Although he has been exposed to cats and I suspect he would do well, he has not been around them a lot.  He does need an active home where he gets enough exercise.
ARIES - Formerly Yellow Collar Boy
    Aries is a sweet black/tan male puppy with LOTS of personality.  He's a little bit of a "velcro dog"​ and really loves to get attention.  He's also a bit of a "lap dog" and, although higher energy, he does calm down nicely after he gets some of that energy out.  He has an absolutely beautiful, shiny coat and great structure.  Additionally, this boy has an excellent nose and would more than likely do great in Search & Rescue or anything nose work.  He does very well in the house and loves chewing on Nyla Bones.  He would do best in an active home where he gets lots of mental and physical stimuli.  He no longer needs to have midnight "potty breaks" and does great in a crate/kennel overnight.  He would be an great choice for someone wanting to avoid that very young, potty-training puppy phase.  He needs lots of love and to be made a member of the family.

She is probably our sweetest girl and does well around other dogs and people. 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 a-normal hips and a-normal elbow stamps, certified out of Germany and is DM Clear. Karma has her AKC certificate and DNA on file.

At maturity, males should weigh no more than 85-95 lbs and females between 70-85 lbs. Puppies should have great temperaments and high trainability.

C2 LITTER - MAGGIE MAE & DONAR
ANTICIPATED TO GO HOME IN JUNE 2023​
Dam: Maggie Mae vom Haus Middleton
This is a repeat breeding that previously produced six beautiful sable, black/red and black/tan puppies. Maggie's dam was our Meggy von der Fangschleuse, who w as imported from Germany. Meggy had achieved her IPO1 and her pedigree is filled with many famous show-lines, including Vegas du Haut Mansard. Maggie has a lot of her mother's mannerisms ... she is energetic, incredibly agile and full of sweetness. She loves her people, yet is independent and adventurous. She is a "hunter" and enjoys stalking (and pouncing on) field mice and squirrels. Her sire is Chaos vom Haus Middleton, who is 3/4th working and 1/4th show-lines. He is the grandson of my now deceased Police K9 partner, Tex vom Erlenbusch. The working line side of Maggie's pedigree is just as impressive as the show-line side. Maggie has all the beauty of her show-line relatives, but the working ability, health and sound-mindedness of her working-line pedigree. She has the best of both worlds. Maggie has OFA "Good" hips and OFA "Normal" elbows. She is DM "Clear" and has AKC DNA on file.
Sire: VD Donar Skocicka samota, ZVV1
Donar is a very dark sable, large boned German Shepherd imported from the Czech Republic. He has been raised around children and has a very nice, sound temperament. He is non-confrontational with other dogs and works with both male and female handlers.  Donar has hips and elbows certified out of Europe. He is DM Clear and has earned his ZVV1 working title, which includes protection, obedience and tracking. In addition to his working title, Donar also earned a show title of VD, which is "very good". He was breed surveyed in the Czech Republic and earned a KKL1 rating, which means he is "recommended for breeding". Donar is AKC registered and has DNA on file.  Donar is a serious dog with excellent structure and a very sound, calm temperament.
We expect these puppies to have moderate toy/food drive, high trainability and excellent structure. Females should be between 55-70 lbs while males should be 75-85 lbs. Both Donar and Maggie carry the long-coat gene and we expect there will be a small number of plush/long coated puppies in this litter.  Puppies will be DM Clear per parentage. These puppies will make great family companions for ACTIVE households.  

​​Deposit of $500 is required to be placed on our waiting list.  
We do offer a $200 discount to active/retired first responders (Police/Fire) and all military veterans.  Please contact us for specific litter pricing.  

D2 LITTER - ZEA & DONAR
ANTICIPATED TO GO HOME MAY/JUNE 2023​
Dam: Zea Kateko, ZVV1 
Zea is a very beautiful, dark sable German Shepherd imported from the Czech Republic. Zea earned her ZVV1 (includes protection, obedience and tracking skills) 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 has her AKC registration and DNA on file with the AKC. Zea enjoys the company of people and other dogs, going for swims, long walks and playing with her toys. 

Sire: VD Donar Skocicka samota, ZVV1

Donar is a very dark sable, large boned German Shepherd imported from the Czech Republic. He has been raised around children and has a very nice, sound temperament. He is non-confrontational with other dogs and works with both male and female handlers.  Donar has hips and elbows certified out of Europe. He is DM Clear and has earned his ZVV1 working title, which includes protection, obedience and tracking. In addition to his working title, Donar also earned a show title of VD, which is "very good". He was breed surveyed in the Czech Republic and earned a KKL1 rating, which means he is "recommended for breeding". Donar is AKC registered and has DNA on file. Donar is a serious dog with excellent structure and a very sound, calm temperament.

This will more than likely be Zea's last litter.  She has produced wonderful puppies with excellent temperaments and beautiful structure.  This is a repeat litter with Zea and Donar.  The first litter produced seven beautiful, all dark sable puppies.  Both Zea and Donar carry the long coat gene so we suspect there will be a couple of long/plush coats in this litter once again. 

A $500 deposit is required to be placed on our waiting list.  We do offer a $200 Discount for all Military Veterans and First Responders (Police/Fire).  For details and specific litter pricing, please contact us.​​​​

E2 LITTER - KENZI & DONAR
ANTICIPATED TO GO HOME IN AUGUST 2023​
Dam:  Kenzi vom Haus Middleton

​​Kenzi is a very beautiful, light sable German Shepherd from both German and Czech working lines.

This will more than likely be Kenzi's last litter. She has produced litters with very natural protection skills, sound temperaments and high trainability.
