White German Shepherd dogs are large, protective, loyal dogs that form strong bonds with their family. German Shepherds belong to the herding or pastoral group of dogs. They have incredible plush white coats, erect ears, soulful eyes and a trademark goofy grin.
This highly intelligent and energetic breed has strong guarding instincts and they are used worldwide as service and military dogs. With the right training and socialization Shepherds can make excellent companions. And a well raised white Shepherd will get along with children and other dogs and will thrive in a spacious home with an active family.

They do best in experienced homes with trainers that have lots of time to devote to positive reinforcement training and exercise. German Shepherd dogs can be wary of strangers and frustrated or upset by spending time alone, so it’s important to make sure you’ve got room for them in your busy schedule.
Where Do White German Shepherds Come From?
The white German Shepherd Dog has endured a long and difficult battle to earn its place as a purebred dog breed worldwide. It takes a deliberate and consistent breeding strategy to reliably produce all white German Shepherd puppies.
Historically, white puppies would sometimes pop up amongst a litter of puppies bearing the more common black and earth tones. Breeders often didn’t know what to make of these white puppies, and some (erroneously) assumed the white coloration denoted a weaker dog.
During World War II Hitler himself decided white was not a proper German Shepherd coloration.
Efforts began to erase all traces of white coat genes, but thankfully this didn’t catch on in many places outside of Germany.
The Modern White Shepherd
Even today, GSD purists prefer rich, dark coat colors over pale tones. A white coat disqualifies a German Shepherd from American Kennel Club shows.
In the UK the Kennel Club breed standard recognises that coat color is “of secondary importance, having no effect on character or fitness for work”. However, your white German Shepherd’s coat color will still be counted against them in shows.
White German Shepherd Genetics
Our understanding of the genes which control canine coat color is increasing all the time. But even as we unravel the unique DNA of other famously white dogs (think of the Dalmatian, and the white English Bulldog), the white German Shepherd remains stubbornly mysterious.
There was a time when all white German Shepherds were thought of as albinos. Whilst the gene for albinism does exist in the GSD population, the majority of white German Shepherds don’t carry it. Nor do they carry the extreme white piebald gene which gives Dalmatians their white base.
At the time of writing, in 2019, the most widely accepted theory is that German Shepherds all have one spot in their genetic code which acts like a switch for white and non-white.
If a puppy inherits the non-white gene in this location from either mom or dad, then they’ll be one of the other possible German Shepherd colors, depending on the other genes they have.
But if they inherit the white gene for from both mom and dad, then all else in their genetic code is forgotten, and they are white. Because they need to inherit the white gene from both parents, it is described as a recessive trait.
Are White German Shepherd Puppies Rare?
Only a pair of white German Shepherds are certain to have a litter of all white puppies. But it’s also possible that two non-white GSDs can produce a small proportion of white puppies is a litter, if they both carry the white gene.
A careful breeder who understands German Shepherd coat color genetics can reliably produce a litter of white puppies by mating two white German Shepherd dogs. So in reality, the availability of white Shepherd Dog is a matter of supply and demand, fashion, and the GSD-owning community’s preference.
How Big Are White German Shepherd Dogs?
What can you expect from a white Shepherd’s looks, besides a sea of snowy white fur? A solid white German Shepherd adult dog can range in weight from 60 to 85 pounds, with adult males outweighing adult females. As adults, the white GSD will stand anywhere from 22 inches to 26 inches high at the shoulder.
White Shepherd Eye Color
The gene for a GSD’s white coat only affects coat colors, and does not have any impact on eye or skin pigmentation. Like the rest of their pedigree, the most common eye color for a white Shepherd is dark brown. However, coloration can range from a lighter amber to a dark mahogany color.
Every so often, a pure white German Shepherd with blue eyes will be born. However, this is a rare trait attributed to expression of a recessive gene for eye color.
Long Haired White German Shepherd
Do you think a white Shepherd is an unusual sight? A long haired one is even rarer! Long haired German Shepherds of every color owe their coats to a recessive gene for long hair.
Historically, long haired GSDs were considered a genetic fault. Long haired dogs lack a waterproof, insulating undercoat, so they were unsuitable for working. But they are famously good-tempered and devoted, so modern long haired German Shepherds of every color are gaining popularity as pets and companion dogs.
Short Haired White German Shepherd
The short haired white German Shepherd Dog is more common than the long haired white GSD. A German Shepherd with short hair has the same insulating undercoat as any German Shepherd, regardless of coat color.
These dogs make for hard-working dogs who excel in guarding, herding, service, search and rescue, police, military and protection jobs. Their white coat helps to distinguish flock guard dogs from darker-haired predators such as coyotes and wolves.
Grooming a White Shepherd
In terms of coat care, the short haired white German Shepherd has the same basic grooming and coat maintenance needs as any short haired German Shepherd. All German Shepherds shed a lot, but white hair has a special talent for showing up against floors and furniture.
They also shed out their short undercoat during the warm season.
Frequent brushing and grooming can help keep shedding localized and manageable. The long haired German Shepherd will need more detailed and frequent grooming. You will need to pay special attention to cleaning and grooming their ears.
Bathing should always be done sparingly to avoid removing necessary coat oils.
Excessive washing can cause skin dryness that could lead to irritation or illness, so invest in a gentle shampoo.
White German Shepherd Temperament
White German Shepherd personality is perceived to be softer and gentler than the traditionally colored GSD. But there doesn’t seem to be any evidence to support this bias.
As with any working purebred dog breed, it is important to realize right away that these dogs are not bred to be lap dogs. They demand high level of work and interaction, or they will become bored and destructive.
Are White German Shepherds Aggressive?
In the past, many people trained GSDs to be wary of strangers, and aggressive towards trespassers. Most German Shepherds today are still wary of new people, and take a while to warm up to them. However, there’s no reason a well raised white German Shepherd should be aggressive.
Early, daily, consistent and continuous socialization as a puppy will give them the confidence to greet new faces and situations calmly and confidently. From 8 to 14 weeks old, have visitors around every day, and take your puppy to plenty of busy locations.
White Dog Health Problems
All German Shepherds are vulnerable to a number of inheritable health concerns. These include hip and elbow dysplasia – bone malformation at the joint, which causes painful arthritis and lameness.
All breeding dogs should be screened for these conditions before they mate, and good breeders happily offer proof of their dogs’ hip and elbow scores. Good breeders also keep a detailed medical history of their breeding lines, and carry out extra screening for the following conditions if there’s any family history of them:
- Heart disease
- Autoimmune thyroiditis
- Eye disorders
- Degenerative myelopathy
Generally speaking, white German Shepherd Dogs have the same health problems as all other GSDs. However, there is one condition that white German Shepherds might be more predisposed to.
A study proposed a link between the white coat of the GSD and spontaneous laryngeal paralysis – a condition where the airway doesn’t open properly to let a dog inhale. But further research is needed to see if this is correct.
Are White German Shepherds Deaf?
Has anyone ever told you that white dogs are more likely to be deaf? There’s some truth in it. Dogs like Dalmatians, who owe their white coat to the extreme piebald gene, are more likely to have hearing loss. That’s because the same cells which produce skin and hair pigment also play an important structural role in the inner ear.
Dogs with the piebald or extreme piebald genes lack these cells, so they are white, and they may have hearing loss. But remember that white GSDs inherit their white coat, by a different, special gene? That means their coat is white, but their skin is still normally pigmented, and their hearing is unaffected!
How Long Do They Live?
The average German Shepherd Dog lives to 11 years old. There is no evidence that this would be any longer or shorter for a white GSD.
Overall, ensuring your White German Shepherd puppy enjoys a lifetime of good health rests on choosing a breeder who invests in health screening for their sire and dam.
White German Shepherd Breeders
As we’ve seen, white German Shepherds are frowned upon by purists. But their striking looks are gaining legions of fans among a new generation of GSD lovers.
It’s very important when breeding puppies for a recessive trait like white fur, to resist breeding from individuals who are too closely related. But for unscrupulous breeders, this is exactly the way to get the litter they want, without travelling to reach a breeding partner who is unrelated enough.
Good breeders will:
- Provide the results of hip and elbow dysplasia exams, and well as other health tests.
- Show you the full family tree of their puppies, and their co-efficient of inbreeding.
- Invite you to meet mom with her puppies, and dad if possible.
- Offer references from the buyers of previous litters, if this isn’t their first litter.
How Much Do White German Shepherd Puppies Cost?
White German Shepherd price can fluctuate depending on demand, breeder reputation, appearance, coat and eye color and gender. The top priority for a responsible breeder is raising a litter of happy, well-socialised puppies, and settling them into good homes.
This is no cheap endeavour, but beware of breeders who charge an undue premium purely for the color of their puppies’ coats. This should be of secondary concern, and suggests a breeder might have more regard for pursuing profit than their dogs’ welfare.
For general purposes, the typical price range for a white German Shepherd puppy ranges from $700 to $1,500.
Are White German Shepherds Good Pets?
A white German Shepherd Dog can be a fabulous canine companion. However, having the most successful experience will depend greatly on doing your research into a puppy’s history.
Meeting the parent dogs and making sure a vet has conducted appropriate genetic tests on both parents. Your puppy will also need lots of time and interaction with you and plenty of physical activity daily. Socialization and ongoing training, as well as a whole lot of exercise, are also essential.
All GSDs need a home where someone is around during the week as well as at weekends, to prevent them becoming bored and destructive. If you can provide these essential needs, then a white German Shepherd may be a fun and rewarding pet dog choice for you!
N.H. Swanner says
The white German shepherd is not a separate breed and can occur randomly in litters with colored parents. However, if 2 white GSDs are bred, the puppies will/should all be white. AKC recognizes a white colored German shepherd as a German shepherd, making no differentiation as to color with regards to AKC purebred registration. AKC does not recognize the Swiss White Shepherd which has been campaigned and recognized by some kennel clubs as a separate breed but which shares the exact same DNA as a German shepherd. I have owned AKC registered white German shepherds for more than 40 years and recommend them highly as family members, companions, protectors, service dogs, and just about any other job you can name. And, just as an FYI, Canada has had at least one white GSD police dog, as has Denver, Colorado.
I have a white shepherd, Piper, and she was the best decision I ever made! My dad has multiple white shepherds and they’re all loyal, smart and friendly! And gorgeous! Piper is 2 now and she is just as weird and quirky as my children are and she does anything to protect them. If she’s inside and they are outside then a widow has to be open so she can see them. She’s a mamas dog but she’s very protective of her human cubs lol. She’s also very protective of our family in general. On walks, she’s happy and playful but if she senses someone of no good nature approaching then her tail goes under and she gets closer to me. She waits for me to say it’s ok before she approaches anyone. A couple months ago she got out of the house, we just moved to a new town, and she took off down the road (just a subdivision neighborhood, lots of no busy roads) and we went after her. She usually will go then come home.. but we went after her because it’s a new place. My 6 year old was with me and we were just walking a little ways behind her, if we chase then she thinks it’s a game and she runs faster and further so we kept a distance behind her. Well a little happy chihuahua comes out from nowhere barking at us and charging us and my 6 year old starts screaming and crying. INSTANTLY piper was right there, standing between us and the other dog. She never once but at it or even barked but she didn’t let it get close to us.
She’s our best friend and has become my emotional support animal. We don’t know what we would do without her ♥️
We have a one yr old German shepherd -Pitbull Mix. His father was the German Shepherd and was All white. Both parents were excellent and had papers. Got him for two hundred and since that day life has been amazing. This dog is an incredible and intelligent hybrid that don’t like to sit around. Active , loyal, loving, protect, and quick learner. He opens door, talks back and even after being hit by a car n left on road ..we got him back moving and his only deal is complain about is his stubborn…he can try to be dominant but fails and has a personality and his appearance is perfect between the parents and has tan, white And a muscular and soft shirt coat pup. Love my ASTRO
Kaitlyn Manley says
I have a white german shepherd, she is a service dog in training due to her amazing laid back personality with a fun going outlook on strangers.
I had a white shepherd several years ago. Loved her dearly. She was extremely loyal and protective. I had adopted her when she was 6 weeks old. I would like to get another Female,WGSD. I have no idea where to start for a good breeder nor do I have any idea of cost. I live in NYC. I AM afraid of not finding a reputable breeder. If anyone can give me few names of breeders with good reputations and approximately cost it would be very much appreciated.
Jojo Gamez says
white germain sheperds are fun loving and smart dogs. i play with them most of the time
and they always manage to do things themselves.but the downside is some white GSD has this habit of entering and destroying bushes when it is sunny outside or when its hot.
But White GSD are fast in response as in even they know when your coming out of your house and where. Thats impressive
Lisa V says
Our long hair female will be 12 in a few days! We buy Rural King lamb and rice dog food for her. She has been a fecal eater her whole life but since she was always surprisingly healthy it must not hurt her, it’s just gross and forces us to race to pick up after our other dogs. She has the sweetest nature and is definitely worth the extra work.

Where are you located . ? I’m in Texas and would love a all white Gsd
I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and we got an all white GSD in grapevine we named him Kaizer Von Thor, he is now 10 weeks old and we love him very much, just remember as puppies they teeth a lot and love to bite anything that comes close to there mouth, we work with him everyday to get him to not bite me or my wife and kids.
My Athena had 3 in one liter when breed with another K9 (multi coloured coat black red white). Her paperwork stated fawn-y Sable AKA. But the couple who sold her to me said she was really a brendel but if they put that in she would be disqualified from AKA. You can see the Tiger strips clearly on her saddle especially in her winter coat but the AKA will not recognize a brendel because they say they’re extinct. So ok they’re the experts but I don’t know of anyone who can explain her litter of 3 white 3 Amber and red, 1 sable black and 1 black white tan standard and another almost blue.
All I can say is they were born admid the fall colors and match almost perfectly the season. The sire was the pick of the litter by Lt. Ronnie Anderson of the Spartanburg K9 unit and from one of those exceptional cost of 10k officer working bloodlines. Aside from being a very clever creature especially adapted to apprehending bad guys… His coat was a standard saddle trimmed red and a bit of white. Very handsome animal but whatever it is produced an amazing colorful bunch of beautiful pups.
Justin Woodall says
We have a male, 3 yr old registered White GSD (Orange, TX – $900). Vet said only one testicle descend. Is that common in White GSD?
The Perfect dog for Rural life. As above so precisely stated, a White GSD makes an impression on people. Ours lives unconfirmed, around our place. I took him around about a 5 acres area surrounding our house, maybe 10 times. Then, he just took the job protect that area. Our White GSD lives to do the his job, & he’s good at it!. No Coyotes or Raccons anymore. If a stranger makes it up to the house, they don’t get out of their vehicle.
Does anyone have a white GSD that has skin issues? My wonderful 11wk old puppy scratches and bites himself until it hurts. He then whines when he scratches etc. Any advice?
My dogs scratch and itch in the summer months, I take them to the vet and get a shot and it stops the itch, I can’t find on their records what the shot is, its expensive but it works.
I am not a vet or health practioner of any sort but have had many GSD over my long life. Currently I have a white GSD (8mths) who I love to bits.
Itchy skin has always been an issue especially in German Shepherds. Here’s what I’ve learned from experience.
No fatty foods like cheap supermarket dog roll.
Buy the best quality dog biscuits you can afford and mix up the brands a bit for variety. Don’t fall into the “grain free” trap, it’s hocos pocos.
For puppies up to at least 1 year no beef based food, only chicken based.
I never bathe my dogs let alone use shampoo of any sort. Instead I take them swimming at the beach a few times a year. They never smell.
Try different brands of flea treatment, some dogs are sensitive to some types.
Once established scratching can become a hard to stop habit that can take several weeks to fade back.
Best of luck and hope this may be of some help.
My white shepherd has the same issues. She is three and they just started presenting this past spring. She eats at her legs and her stomach. She does not have fleas and is on flea pills + drops.
We went to the vet and they suggested we try food with only rabbit or kangaroo in it since shepherds are notoriously allergic to a variety of common food types. The kangaroo did help quite a bit but I think there may be a bit of environmental allergens happening as well. We may have to explore getting a seasonal shot next spring.
Patrick Gisler says
Our wonderful white male GSD had stinky coat from the day we picked him up. Despite medicated shampoo baths, cortisone shots, antibiotics, etc, he found spots where he chewed himself until hair stopped growing. Even tried the advertised food supplements. Nothing worked. Seems to be some form of psoriasis or allergy that no vet ( tried 6 different vets ) knows how to treat. He eventually stopped chewing himself, but he has bare spots where no hair grows. He seemed to do better when we moved to a cooler climate (Oregon).
Denicia McAbee says
Food allergies could be the problem. I have a4 year old white and she developed food allergies and had to be put on prescription food as well as the occasional Benadryl. She has turned to be a Great dog despite her allergies and he occasional anxiety during storms which is much better. She loves her feline companion Boo too
Mark Anderson says
Could be allegic to something in his diet. Mines is allergic to chicken. When he was a young puppy he lost all the hair on his snout.
Mine were allergic to chicken as well and I was giving them the organic chicken breast even!!
I am now working on my fourth WGSD and the other three lived to be between 12 and almost 16 years old! All of them have had skin problems, whether I lived in California or Florida as I do today. By happenstance, I heard a dog expert on the radio say that feeding a shepherd chicken will often trigger an allergic reaction. So my current 12-year-old, who had hot spots her whole life, was taken off anything that had chicken products in it. Ground turkey is fine, but not chicken. She has not had a hot spot since, not even in the heat of our Florida summers. I don’t know if that is anecdotal or not, but I feed her a Science Diet lamb and rice formula for kibble and I make a brown rice and ground turkey concoction to mix in with the dry food at night. Hope it works for you too! I spent thousands of dollars on vet visits and all kinds of products before discovering it was probably an allergic reaction.
My White (now 13.5 yo) had lots if skin issues over the years. I had tried everything. Now, I have him shaved down (#4, maybe) in the spring and fall, when the weather has big changes (I live in Alberta, Canada). Between that and finding the right food for him made all the difference. For the last 4 or 5 years, he isn’t as itchy and hasn’t had a sore. I think the shaving makes him more comfortable and helps with shedding, lol. I tried tons of different foods before the Hill’s Science diet sensitive skin and stomach worked. I also mix in a couple others for the last couple years, just for variety for him. I also mix in Hill’s Dental (science diet, but he seems to prefer the prescription diet) and Acana Wild Coast. The later just more to play with the flavor.
Hope it helps!

Looking for a female white german shepherd, I live in New Mexico
Hello, I live in Texas and I am looking for an AKC long haired white German Shepard. Do you have a female puppy?
Patrick Gisler says
I had a wonderful AKC female white GSD. After my lung cancer surgery I had to give her up. She is still at Brightside Animal shelter in Redmond, OR.
I have had a white GS for 5 years now. I have had several dogs a breeds over the years and I can honestly say that I wish I would have never had any other dog. He has literally been the PERFECT family member. Amazing with kids, listens to everything I say, smart and learns extremely fast and is protective. There is absolutely nothing bad I can say about my dog or this breed. He loves to play and also will just hang out for days. I would highly recommend this breed!!
I’ve purchased a white GSD I’m a bit concerned as all other pups were black and tan including the parents. He survived pavo after hospitalization and we love him to bits. Any advice on the linage.
Gregory Azia says
Our beautiful silver sable female GSD is 13 1/3 years old. She was diagnosed with hemagiosarcoma 3 weeks ago. Tomorrow we are expecting will be her last day with us. She’s been my wife’s and my child since she arrived by Delta air 3/31/06. She came from a WGSB in Ohio “Steel Shepherds” who bred a beautiful silver sable male sire with one of their white females. We previously had a golden colored GSD female that was the product of a white male and black and tan female. When “IV” past, I wanted another lighter female GSD and through a similar process found Sasha’s breeder from the WGSD community. She has been our pride and joy. Sasha just loves life. So now we are starting our search for a new “child” for us.
Jose Chacon says
I am thinking of getting a White German Shepard when I turn 70 years old as companion and friend for life. I would like to know the availability and the cost.
Brianne sisca says
Hi Jose. I paid $2500 for my AKC white GSD. I live in NY and had her flown in from Texas. She is the best dog I ever had. She is now 5. Took a couple of years to REALLY train ( walking, fetch, tricks, commands, etc) She is easy to train, loves my son ( more than me when he is with me (I share custody)) She loves to be around people. You have to be active, stimulate the dog, but I don’t think as much as a malamute, border collies. She loves playing frisbee or I have an attachment and she can run next to my bike. Socialize at dog parks and your neighborhood. I feed high quality food, treats and her teeth ( and breath) amazing! I can take her to stores and restaurants that allow dogs. She is a looker everywhere we go!
These dogs on the pictures actually are different breed. These are my
dogs which are FCI breed White Swiss Shepherd. The first dogs is Onyx, pup in between is my L litter pup and the third larg dog is Born to Win White Almighty. She used to be my competition dog and we also participated with her in the World Championship. This year getting 10 years old and still healthy. All of them are pure White Swiss Shepherd Dogs. Anyway, nice to find my dog pics around the internet 🙂
Hi Monika, Thanks for letting us know! They came from the Adobe Stock library, so you will probably see them on a few sites 🙂 I have replaced the photo of your beautiful dogs. Best wishes, Lucy
Karen Matthews says
I am a breeder of long hair German Shepherds.
My female is a red sable long hair GSD and my male is a king Shepherd.
This is their first litter of 9 and one female is pure white.
When she was born the sack surrounding her was also white.
Looking forward to seeing these beauties blossom to adults.
Sónia Trejo says
I am new to this site. I have been blessed to have 3 White GSD’s (2 female-1 male) and 1 Black (male), + 1 Lab/Dobie mix companions over the past 30 years.
My last white GSD was rescued from dog fighting monsters. He had been kept in a cage and severely malnourished. He was both the most challenging insofar as training/socializing and the most affectionate guardian/hiking/camping buddy. In 2018 I lost my 4 yr old Black GSD to a reckless driver. Four months later, my White GSD passed away at 16 years old. My heart still aches.
I’ve come to understand that we don’t rescue them, they rescue Us. Such was the case with my last white, who rescued me just 3 weeks after my husband passed away from cancer 15 years ago.
I just completed an application to be a volunteer at the WGSD in San Diego county…I know there’s a GSD out there waiting to adopt me…
Dr. Islas says
We just lost our 14 y/o WGS mix last week. He was all WGS through and through. Life will never be the same without him.
He was gentle, friendly, protective, loving, and soft – so soft. We rescued him at 8 weeks and he was the best thing that ever happened to us. We will miss our handsome boy forever.
Brianne sisca says
Sending you thoughts as a WGSD owner. Dogs have a smile that can melt your heart and you miss that thump of the tail wag when you get home. The dog was blessed to have such a loving owner!
Danielle C says
I could not agree more!! We just lost our 3.5yr old WGSD girl who rescued us 2 years ago. She was taken by systemic aspergillosis, which we’d never even heard of but apparently it’s GSD’s, and I believe possibly even WGSD’s which are the most prone to it. Basically it’s a common fungi that is everywhere and we’re all inhaling it, but it can only take hold in people/animals that are immune suppressed. The fungus spreads throughout the body. We first found out she had it a year ago when she started having eye problems and ended up having to have it removed. Since then, we’ve been doing a lot of varied treatments and managed to give her another good year of life. My husband and I have only ever had GSD’s, but she was our first white, and she definitely stole our hearts the most of any!!! Still brings tears to my eyes and will do for a very long time. Our 7yr old long hair black GSD girl is also missing her dearly. We’ll definitely be getting another white…… one day. Not just yet though.
Jojo Gamez says
Me too i lost my a White GSD to a reckless Range rover driver. *which just drove away*. And i kept his collar in a box and everytime i look at it,i cry,
but i got 2 White GSD puppies a year after and i enjoyed my time with them.
Janean Thomas says
My husband and I am in search of a white female GSD to breed my stud with. He is registered and very healthy and up to date on all his shots. He is a 1 1/2 years old. We live in Houston. We can discuss details once we connect.
Your dog should not be bred untill he is two or older. A dog is done growing and becomes as adult at about two years old. Breeding a dog before then is too young and may cause increased health risks in the puppies. I also suggest not breeding unless you are an actual breeder, not just someone wanting to breed their pet.
Theresa Palmer says
We have had two female white GSDs, two litters one white and another we could not find a white male close so we had a black Shepard…my in laws had four two males and two females..both sister in law had one and brother in law had a couple…we all loved ours! My husband had grown up with a regular German Shepherd and he prefers the white.
Our last one we had for about 14 years and was hit by a car. She was a big part of the family,after Haddi died my son joined the Navy in 2016, finished A and C school and came home before shipping out on his first tour may of 2017. While home he asked we get another white Shepard, before he returned. On August 21,2017 our son was killed on the USS JOHN McCain in the straights of Malacca near Singapore when a Liberian tanker turned into the side of his ship, trapping and killing 10 sailors.
We have searched for a white female ,but the cost and restrictions the breeder had prevented us from the purchase. One day we will probably get another. When the time is right we will buy another.
Gold Star Mom
I’m planning on getting a white female puppy this week. I have an adult male. I hope to have my own puppies in 1.5 years. I would be honored to give you a puppy from their first litter.

Denise Taylor says
When I adopt or purchase a dog it is as I’m purchasing as a child nothing more or less. I love my black German Shepherd she is 6years now and has several Drs visits twice with severe Gis issues. After hundreds of dollars she is well no on going meds. Iwould get another. They are great natured smart dogs and my child.
