Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you learn more about the German Shepherd breed and if
you desire reserve one of our puppies. First, we are members of the United Schutzhund Clubs of
America and the German Shepherd Working Dog Club of America and follow their guidelines,
particularly in our breeding program.
Pictured on our home page is Titan vom Mittelwest, the 2010 VA1 Sieger Show winner, SchH3, Kkl1, a
gorgeous deep red/black and the color of our German shepherds.
Our breeding program is simple: buy a VA1 daughter, title her, and breed to a VA1 sire. Thus, our kennel
name, "vom Besten," that means "from the best." The "VA" title means excellent select and is awarded only
at a Sieger Show that is only for German shepherds and is comparable to the Westminster Kennel Club that
is for all dogs. We have 2 titled VA1 daughters that are our breeding females:
1. Lotta vom Mittelwest, SchH2, AD, BH, 1a. Lotta is a VA1 daughter and has been bred to Titan several
times producing gorgeous deep red/black puppies. Her litters have sold out by 9 weeks of age, so early reservations
are encouraged. Lotta will now be bred to the 2013 BSZS (Germany World Championship) in Kassel, VA1
Chacco von der Freiheit Westerholt, who also won the 2012 and 22013 best bite work.
2. Uhoo vom Mittelwest, SchH2/IPO2, is the daughter of Rocco vom Mittelwest, the 2012 Sieger Show winner
and was bred to the 2013 Sieger Show winner, Peik vom Holtkamper hof, the only VA1 German imported
shepherd in the U.S. and Europe. Peik has competed in 4 straight world championships and placed 8th in the
world in 2009. Their October 2013 litter sold out prior to whelping and 2 deposits have already been received for
their planned March 2014 breeding.
The German Shepherds are known as family protective dogs and according to the AKC registration the 2nd most
popular breed in America as identified during the 2014 Westminster Kennel Club show.
Many buyers indicate they "just want a pet." Our shepherds do make excellent pets and their pedigree
attest to their temperament and intelligence to train and make our shepherds your family member or
participate in Schutzhund shows should you desire. Our prices reflect the quality of breeding as attested
by the dam and sire's pedigree that can be found on pedigreedatabase.com to assure you have selected
the best German shepherd puppy available. Additionally, puppies come with hip/elbow guarantee, shots,
wormed, microchip, and vet health check required for shipping.
Our puppies sell in the $1900 to $2500+ price range. This is due to the quality of our German shepherds, the
cost of the VA1 daughter; titling up to SchH2; hip/elbow certification; stud service to a VA1 sire; and breed survey
or a total between $12,300 to $13,800 before the first puppy is born not counting vet visits and food. Obviously, I
cannot sell you a $800 - $1000 puppy for the quality of German shepherd that I breed. This quality that is done to
ensure that your puppy is "from the best." Additionally, our puppies have their hips/elbows guaranteed to pass
certification or you receive your purchase toward the current litter price of a replacement puppy. Be sure to ask
any breeder you are considering if they guarantee the puppy's hip/elbows. Lastly, our shepherds live in a home
environment and are part of the family not in an outside kennel. We are located in Virginia and Maryland, but ship
throughout the U.S. and Canada to our buyers.
Here Is what of my recent puppy buyers (and others) said of their Lotta & Titan puppy purchase,
"We have looked at other German Shepherd puppies and for some reason, just were
not the connection, but when we saw your puppy, it was like "Hello, he is the one".
We felt a spark with this sweet little puppy." Are you as discerning puppy buyer as my puppy
No puppy is sold until a $500 deposit is received. Puppies are reserved in the order that deposits are received.
We accept PayPal, and major credit cards, e.g. MC and VISA thru PayPal.
Lastly, unfortunately there are puppy scammers that want you to ship through their carrier
and provide Western Union to them! I am aware of their tactics, do not ship my puppies
using their carriers, nor send Western Union money to their carriers!
