About Us

Vom Besten Deutsche Shaeferhund (VBDS)
From the Best German Shepherd

We are a small family kennel (2 males and 4 females) located in Central Virginia and breed selectively each year producing 2 - 3 litters.

Although small we do not consider ourselves backyard breeders. As our veterinarian said, "There are very few quality German Shepherd breeders in Virginia" and as our name and numbers suggest we believe in quality to improve the breed rather than quantity. Our Shepherds live on 3 acres of property in a family environment and we have selected our German Shepherds from the best title show line West Germany imports. We hope you will enjoy browsing our website and will reserve one of our quality puppies if you desire to own a German Shepherd. 

The following is a sample of what my buyer's say about us, "Our family is looking for a quality breeder to purchase a German Shepherd pup. There was a family down the street from us selling German Shepherd AKC pups. I went to look at them and was not pleased. When I was young our family had German Shepherds, my father was a police officer and our family pet was a working K-9. All our shepherds came from Champion bloodlines and they were as beautiful as your Thor and Isabell. I have gone through several breeder websites and please to find your small family kennel ..... "

I will work with you to find the right German Shepherd for your family and reserve the right to refuse to sell my shepherds to anyone for any reason. I offer a health guarantee to replace the puppy free in accordance with the guarantee. Our prices are much less than if you were to import a German Shepherd from Europe. Thus, we are offering you the opportunity to own a German Shepherd from imported titled parent at reasonalbe U.S. prices. Often buyers describe to me the health and temperament problems they have encountered when they have bought from some breeders that may be producing dollars, rather than breeding Shepherds to improve the breed.

We are a member of the GSDCA-WDA (German Shepherd Dog Club of America - Working Dog Association, Inc) and AKC (American Kennel Club) with over 13 years breeding experience; have signed the GSDCA Breeder's Code; and follow their guidelines.

As stated at VBDS we strive to improve the German Shepherd breed by selecting the best Sire and Dam available to us to produce our puppies. Our Shepherds are of West German show line background with Schutzhund and other titles. Please look at the background of our sire and dam's pedigree and titles and their puppies. There are V, VA, FH2, SchH3, SchH2, BH and Kkl1 titles in their background. An explanation of these terms is provided under litter announcement tab. Schutzhund means protection dog in German, please see "What is Schutzhund" under the Schutzhund tab for more information on this excellent training and sport.

Early reservation for our puppies is encouraged as they a usually gone by the time the litter is whelped or soon thereafter. Isabell and Thor puppies were whelped April 29, 2011. Please contact us at newbilljt@cs.com to reserve your puppy.

Presently, we have the following litters available:

Isabell's: 1males 2 females born April 29, 2007. Price:$800 plus shipping.

Puppies will have their 1st shots, wormed and vet cheched and gaurantee.

Q: How much is it to ship a puppy?
A: $150 to $350 is the norm, but can be lower or higher depending on the airline, weight of the puppy at time of shipping. Airline shipping is allowed at 8 weeks with a vet certificate and crate the puppy may stand and turn around in
