Bred at Sapphire Shepherds, SAR Cato & owner/handler Linda. Both hard at work as usual in New York.
Bonatti of Sapphire Mountain & Mac, way back in the Beartooth mountains. Excellent family dog, hiking and camping companion!
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)
Health, temperament, kid tested and approved! A perfect match made in Montana.
The German Shepherd should be vigilant, incorruptible, faithful, courageous, like children and be cautious toward strangers. They are active dogs that need room and to be kept involved in order to live up to their unlimited potential!
