Before starting to breed German Shepherds, both Scott and I lived overseas for nearly 10 years. I was fortunate to call Germany my home and it was there that my love, admiration and passion for German Shepherds grew. I knew many German Shepherd owners, as well as breeders, and enjoyed watching the dogs work in the local Schutzhund (protection) clubs and classes. After returning to the United States in 2005 Scott and I decided we wanted to continue what I had been able to enjoy and experience in Europe, thus, Esteemed K9 German Shepherds became our passion and love. We are lucky to call 11 acres our home! It is an ideal place to train our dogs as well as allow our puppies to experience different situations, other animals, as well as spend many hours learning about life and people. We have been blessed to be able to work and raise German Shepherds and we look forward to many more years with this breed in the future. Welcome to our amazing world of German Shepherds!
