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!
