Before starting to breed German Shepherds, I was blessed to live in Germany for nearly 10 years. I was fortunate to call the southern region of Bavaria 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 I decided to continue what I had been able to enjoy and experience in Europe, thus, Esteemed K9 German Shepherds became my passion and love. Welcome to the amazing world of German Shepherds and Esteemed K9s.
