Sapphire Shepherds is owned and operated by Ramona Mogan, breeding and registering German Shepherd's under the AKC registered kennel name Sapphire Mountain. Born and raised in Montana, Ramona grew up in a family that shared a love of all animals, horseback riding and the great outdoors. Ramona and her son Daniel love their dogs, taking care of their property and traveling to new places.
Raising healthy working German Shepherds since 1997, Ramona is proud to have personally selected or imported into the USA some of the finest working foundation blood available in the world. From these precious genetics, Ramona has built Sapphire Shepherds into a well established and respected kennel. Ramona enjoys being able to produce and hand select healthy pups for her client’s various needs and see them go on to work successfully. Ramona also enjoys working with and training her own dogs in various areas of interest, titling or certifying them as her limited time and location allows.
Ramona understands that part of a kennel’s success is due in measure to the effort of it’s clients. The continuing quality of health care and ongoing training by the owner are very important. Ramona has been fortunate that a large number of her clients have appreciated the hard work she has put into her breeding program and have continued on with their pup to be successful with their own goals.
Ramona has over 20 years of experience and courses completed in Native American Herbs, Homeopathic and conventional vet tech level applications. Ramona is also the mother of an Autistic child, thus has much personal experience and understanding of persons and families who contact her looking for a dog to fit individual needs in this specific area.
