Thank you for visiting our website. 

Our kennel name is "vom Besten" that means from the best. We try to perpetuate the German shepherd standard established by Max von Stephanitz in the early 1900s. Thus, our shepherds have a direct pedigree from German lines and are sons or daughters of VA1 parents.

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. If you see the  BSCS title it means the shepherd has participated in the world championship in Germany. Our male and 2 females parents have this designation also.

We have 2 titled VA1 daughters that are our breeding females:

1Lotta 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 winner..

Please see the "2021 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.

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 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 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.

The quality f my red/black show line German shepherds and their training to achieve their titles, hip certification, and breed surveydo not permit me to sell you a $500 - $1,500 puppy. The puppy is 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 Missouri, but ship throughout the U.S. and Canada to our buyers.

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 $2,500 - $3,000. We accept PayPal, and major credit cards, e.g. MC and VISA thru the bottom of my "HOME" page.

Lastly, I do not ship my puppies via 3rd party carriers nor provide Western Union payment to them!
