Big CONGRATULATIONS go out to Dan & his SAR K9 Archer of Sapphire Mountain on passing the 2nd of 3 SAR Trailing tests required in order to become operational. We are told Archer did very well on this test which is at night and about 3 hrs old.
Archer is a dog of strong tracking ability, very good character around people, other dogs and a son of the exceptional Police Service Dog Donner vom Haus Shoal.

Uma of Sapphire Mountain is the new Erie County Cadaver K9.  We wish Uma & handler Deputy Reeves much success and enjoyment in work!
Thank you Linda (former owner/trainer) for allowing Sapphire Shepherds to use Uma as a brood and for all your hard work in achieving SAR Live Find, Moving Subject, IPWDA Human Remains Search-Water, IPWDA Human Remains Search-Land, IPWDA Crime Scene, CGC, OFA Good/Normal

Two lovely half sisters, future brood REYKJA of Sapphire Mountain & Bacara Denbrix both daughters of another fine German Shepherd Unie Denbrix (retired from our program). As the photo depicts, Reykja is a mischievous, persistent, strong large pup!

It is rare nowadays to find black & tan working German Shepherd dogs with balanced character, high drives, strong/stable natural aggression/protection and tracking ability.  To our knowledge, Sapphire Shepherds is the only kennel in North America to offer the genetics of two such outstanding dogs; Czar (Balli Panta-Rei) & Donner (Iwo vom Rittersring) in our breeding program.  Both of these proven top working bloodlines have reliably and consistently produced quality working dogs!
We are further privileged to be a kennel that Government run Police Dog breeding programs have come to for working genetic purchase;  New Zealand Police Dog Breeding & Training Center & the Royal Canadian Mounted Police ( RCMP) Dog Breeding program.
Very few breeders have these honors,  especially in North America!

…."I am incredibly impressed with your dogs and lines.  Awesome job, I'm honored to see Janan (Angie's) line carried on, she and Iwo were both great dogs.  Teri"
(High praise received from the breeder of the exceptional 'D' litter & PSD Donner vom Haus Shoal)
