Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you learn more about the German Shepherd breed and if
you desire purchase 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. I have been a breeder of German shepherds for over 25 years,
trying to improve the breed each year.
If you are looking for a German shepherd that you can be proud of and have people stop you and say,
"What a beautiful shepherd! or where did you get her?" you have find the right website. Although my
shepherds are titled and bred to world champions this is done to attest to their temperament and
intelligence, they make excellent family pets or you can show them if you desire.
My breeding program is simple: buy a VA1 daughter, title her, and breed to a VA1 or world champion
sire. Thus, my 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
1. Lotta vom Mittelwest, SchH2, AD, BH, 1a. Lotta is a VA1 daughter.
2. Uhoo vom Mittelwest, SchH2/IPO2, is the daughter of VA1 Rocco vom Mittelwest, the 2012 Sieger
Please see the "2019 Breeding" tab for more information on the breeding of Uhoo to the 2014
world champion sire, 2VA1 Schumann von Tronje. Uhoo was bred to Schumann September 26 and 27, 2019. Puppies are expected around November 28, 2019.

Further attesting to the quality of my breeding program, a SV German shepherd judge (Bogdan
Sergo) said, "Congratulations to your very impressive breeding program and results." Seeing one
of my puppies at the 2014 U.S. Seiger show on May 14, 2014 where he was judging the trail event
he said, "The president of the club introduced the puppy to him ... very nice temperament ... very
nice for the show line dog .... I liked her a lot!" What better endorsement than from a European
German shepherd judge. You too can own one of my quality German shepherd puppies. You can
verify my puppy's sire and dam by doing a "pedigree search" on pedigreedatabase.com. You
will see multiple "VA/V" title designations attesting to the quality of their pedigree. Did you
check the pedigree of any puppy you are considering ?
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 2016 Westminster Kennel Club show and the
3rd most intelligent dog behind the Border Collie and poodle. Attesting to the beauty of the German shepherd,
Rumar, won the 2016 Westminster Kennel Club show after finishing runner up in 2015.
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, they
are not $500 - $1,500 puppies as attested by the dam and sire's pedigree that can be found on
pedigreedatabase.com to assure you have selected best German shepherd puppy available. Additionally,
puppies come with hip/elbow guarantee, shots, wormed, microchip, full AKC registration, and vet
health check required for shipping.
Our puppies are priced based upon the quality of breeding to provide you "from the best" available.
This is attested by the quality of our German shepherds, titled VA1 daughters bred to VA1 or world champion
sires; hip/elbow certification; and breed survey, etc. Thus, I cannot sell you a $500 - $1,500 puppy for the
quality of German shepherd that I breed.This quality is to ensure that your puppy is "from the best"
and your puppy is representative of the German shepherd breed. Additionally, our puppies have
their hips/elbows guarantee 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.
A recent puppy buyers (and others) said of their 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 buyers? Also, a
German judge at the April 2014 KY event said the following about a Peik/Uhoo 5 month old female
puppy, "This is what we are breeding in Germany ... definitely going to be a super star." You too can
own a world class puppy.
No puppy is sold until a $500 deposit is received. Puppies are priced according to their quality as
measured compared to the breed standard, assessment for show potential or family pet as many buyers
indicate they just want a family pet, and our cost to provide you "from the best" quality German shepherd
puppy. Prices range between $2,800 - $3,200. We accept PayPal, and major credit cards, e.g. MC
and VISA thru PayPal.at the bottom of my "HOME" page.
Lastly, I do not ship my puppies via 3rd party carriers nor provide Western Union
payment to them!
