Our King Shepherds


 
 

King Shepherds are a "breed in development." It is our goal to help improve the breed by using healthy dogs that have passed all the standard genetic tests and also have the temperament that is seen in high quality King Shepherds. The goal is to expand the gene pool by using high quality dogs in the breeding program. We follow responsible and ethical breeding practices. 
  Prices begin at $2500 for pet quality puppies and up to $3500 for breeding rights.

 

King Shepherds are a recognized "rare breed" and may be shown with pride and confidence in the American Rare Breed shows and North American Kennel Club show

We are members of the American Rare Breed Association( ARBA) and all of our dogs have had genetic testing and DNA profile through Embark Vet and   DM (Degenative Myelopathy ) testing through UC Davis, Hip Health reports, and DNA profiles.

Our Passion for King shepherds


 
 

My dogs are bred for health, gentle temperament, size and beauty. They are ideal dogs for family companions, service work, show and protection. My dedication to this breed has inspired me to work with other breeders to create a giant shepherd without the health problems present in modern day German Shepherds. The goal being to create a beautiful large size dog with a straight back and large head with the temperament to be an ideal family dog.

We currently  have outstanding Foundation Stock King Shepherds as well as Generation 1,2 and 3 Kings as well as my own line of King Shepherds with the third breed blend of Great Pyrenees required for a true King Shepherd created with my wonderful Livestock Guardians that live and work here on our farm. All of our puppies are lovingly raised indoors with the family and friends. They are socialized to other dogs, cats, livestock and children. 

 

Our dogs are health tested through EMBARK VET. Embark testes for 160 genetic defects as well as providing valuable information to breeders when matching breeding pairs. All of our dogs are PennHip or X-rayed for hip health and lead very active lives here on our farm running , hiking and swimming .

Penn Hip scores and additional screening for hips of King Shepherds are listed below.  For Penn Hip evaluations, the breed median for the King Shepherd is .54.  The AKSC considers any King above .70 to be excessively loose and ideally should not be bred.  A King that is closer to .30 or below would be considered to have "excellent hips".
