Ready to go home!

Our mission for almost twenty years is to breed the perfect German Shepherd for the family. We named our kennel Truelove because there is no truer love than the love of a dog…especially a German Shepherd.

Our focus is on health and temperament. We do not breed high drive/aggressive dogs that would be used in military/police applications.

We start our puppies using a doggie door when they are weened at 4-5 weeks of age. This helps with the housebreaking process. They sleep inside EVERY night. They receive a lot of human Interaction and affection.

All puppies are from solid bloodlines to help avoid any hip issues and come with a health warranty. In addition, a vet visit at 6 weeks is included.


Valkryie is a sweet little girl. She is always the first to greet you and loves attention. Like her name indicates she backs down from no one…including her brothers.


Like his namesake he is full of mischief and very smart. He was the first puppy to use the doggie door. As Loki gets older, his colors will lighten up. FYI – When GSD are born they are born solid black and lighten up over time.

Mom –


A beautiful black and red with a plusher (not long) coat from Championship West German show lines. Sometimes still thinks she is the 9 pound puppy I brought home years ago. She is VERY sweet and affectionate and a BIG fan of the dog park…and people.

Dad –


Odin is a traditional black and tan with rich markings. We purchased Odin from a long-time friends at Heartstargsd before they retired. One of the impressive dogs in Odin’s bloodline was our beloved Major. Odin’s favorite time of the day is when “Mama” (my wife) comes home. He waits at the door for her…every day.



You can research any of the dogs in the pedigrees to ensure the quality of the puppy you will receive. We can also email on request.

Puppy Buying Tips

1. Many people do not know they are different “lines” of German Shepherds. In a nutshell they are: American, European Show, and European working. The breeders of each line will sell the advantages of theirs and demonize the others. To us. the line depends on the person.
(a) American is what you see on the AKC dog shows, primarily bred to the standard of the herding group which emphasizing the protective instincts of the herding dog. Consider your family it’s flock. Their distinction is the rear is lower than the front “angulation”.
(b) European Show – Very much like the American show above, but with a higher energy level. Slightly larger (maybe 5 -10 lbs.). They have more of a rounded back. Temperament is very even, and they make a good family dog. Many of the bloodlines will trace back to Western Germany.
(c) Working lines – Bred for bite work and prey drive. These dogs are very energetic and are bred (and live and love) to work. You can see examples of these in police and military applications. They are good for moderate to very active people. If you don’t find them “a job”, they will find one.

2. Avoid “backyard breeders”.
-The term “full blooded” is a dead giveaway, all living dogs have all of their blood. Purebred is another term backyard breeders will use frequently.
-Pictures of mothers and their litter in a “kiddy pool”. Almost all experienced breeders utilize a whelping box after the birthing process.

3. Do not purchase solely on pictures.
-All German Shepherd puppies are cute. Cute does not equal good quality. Be cautious, if perspective owners ask for an overload of pictures many reputable breeders will dismiss them as “shoppers” and not serious.

4. Buy from a repeatable breeder who has multiple years of experience.
– A good breeder will ask you as many questions as you ask them.

5. Buying solely on price. – “You get what you pay for…ALWAYS” –
-Remember this is around a 10-year investment. An “extra” $500 upfront will average out to ~$50 per vet.
-A “Cheap” dog can potentially equal a lot of future vet bills, a lot more than $50 per year.
You should expect to spend $1,200 – $2,000 for a dog.
Our current litter is $1500 for females and $1600 for males.

6. Male or female?
-Really a personal preference.
-Dogs tend to bond strongest to the opposite human sex.
-Males are sometimes ~5-10 pounds heavier.
-I have found females to be a little more protective “mama bear”

7. Health issues
-The big one for GSD’s are hips and elbows. Buy from pedigrees with OFA (US)- The Canine Health Information Center | OFA and A-stamping (Germany) Hip Service Page (
-Many “passionate” breeders will tell you that American lines have hip issues due to the angulation and European lines have issues with the way they are bred. I have asked numerous vets and this is not the case. The best source of information (besides the OFA) is your vet.

8. Meet and inspect the parent and where the puppies are raised.
-Many breeders will use a stud dog, so the dad may not be there. You will want to meet the mom and see where the puppies have been born and raised.

9. All AKC puppies are the same — NO!!!
The AKC is a tremendous organization. But it should be the first step in puppy or breeder quality, not the only one.

10. If a breeder wants deposits and/or prepayments with a cash app it may be a scam. We take checks and paypal for deposits ($200) and final payment in cash.
