This is "Oakley" aka green collar pup from Coco x Ben's 10/21/14 litter.

Oakley resides in Missouri with Marsha and Alex.

I think he's pretty happy with the sleeping arrangements! (Both of them are) lol

We're totally IN LOVE with our baby boy! We named him Oakley. He's such a good little guy! He's sleeps with us every night and he loves being in the house with us....he's just a part of the family now. We'd like to get another one sometime in the future so I'm sure you'll be seeing us again! Again, I want to thank you so much for all the pictures you sent and the information you provided us with.

It really was a pleasure doing business with you. (I'm assuming since we didn't get a phone call, the 2nd appointment showed up and got his puppy) ;-)
Congratulations on your beautiful grandbaby!

Merry Christmas,

Marsha

Chaos, Our Hero...

 

Our Hero Chaos....

Chaos and I helped locate for law enforcement a wanted fugitive that was hiding out in an old camper just north of our property (near our property line) the night of August 14, 2014 at 11 pm. This was going on night 2 as the wanted fugitive ran from police when they tried to arrest him the evening before. Having no sleep for 2 nights and very concerned for the safety of our neighborhood I knew action had to be taken. This fugitive had to be found.

Many law enforcement officers were surrounding the house where the fugitive had been staying, while other law enforcement officers were in the area as well trying to locate the wanted fugitive. This was now a man hunt.

August 14, Willy and I had been outside for over 3 hrs by now sitting, watching and waiting. I was in my pajamas as I thought we could get to bed early that night. Before 11 pm I took Willy's flashlight, Chaos was off leash in our fenced yard, I called for Chaos to be by my side and we walked to the back of our property, once we got to the back we were in complete darkness the only light was from my flashlight, I gave the command for Chaos to go find him. IMMEDIATELY Chaos runs to the north fence property line and he KNOWS someone is there, I am giving commands to Chaos VERY LOUDLY to encourage him to find him. I then proceed to where Chaos is. Chaos begins to pace back and forth rapidly at that moment I KNEW someone is near! Suddenly I hear a noise and I stop dead in my tracks as I wanted to be sure 100% that the noise I heard wasn't from a raccoon, fox, rabbit etc., I surely didn't want to yell for law enforcement prematurely if this was a false alarm. So I waited...then I hear someone coming out of the old camper and I yell LOUDLY "HEY!!! HE'S HERE, BACK HERE!!!" Willy is behind me and he runs back to the front of our property and peeks his head over the fence as our front gate is padlocked and no time to unlock, and he tells law enforcement that "he's back here north of the property." In no time at all several law enforcement officers are on the property. One officer ask me, "did you see him?" I replied "no, but I heard him and my dog knows." Within a few minutes he was apprehended. What happened was the wanted fugitive was exiting the camper as he knew Chaos, he was trying to get away, for all he knew Chaos and I were on the property, (a fence prevents that) so when he exited the camper, he ran in the weeds to hide, a few feet from the camper and that's where law enforcement took him into custody and now he's back in the DOC. You can't run from Chaos!

There were many law enforcement officers there that night from many different agencies including members of our Fire Dept using thermal imagining trying to apprehend the fugitive as it was a very chaotic night but Chaos remained calm and cool he trusted the officers completely as they were right up to our fence and Chaos knew they were the "good guys." A uncontrollable dog would have bitten them, not Chaos he knows friend from foe. I put complete trust in my dog that night and Chaos acted out of undying love and loyalty for his family.

That is what a true German Shepherd does!


After this incident as they had the fugitive in handcuffs, the officers began thanking us, and one officer told us to buy Chaos a steak as they lead the fugitive to the patrol car. The girlfriend of the wanted fugitive where they both were staying at a residence across the street, was arrested as well for aiding and abetting. The officers told us they needed our statements. We put Chaos back in his kennel and opened the front gate for the officers. What a sight to behold to see law enforcement officers all lined up in front of our property and thanking us and Chaos. Many were shaking my hand, Deputy Willis asked permission to give me a hug, he kept saying "its exhilarating isn't it?" Yes indeed it was.  I wouldn't trade that moment for a million dollars. How rewarding was that, to help assist our wonderful men in law enforcement that night. Truly an amazing night! I would proudly do it all over again.

On Saturday, August 16 a friend called me and said they ran into someone who works for the local newspaper, and she asked him what happened. So that the story was told accurately I called her and told her what happened on Thursday night. Her reply back to me was that she wasn't interested in that story but interested in a story about the dog I sold to a celebrity. Really, I thought, if I do a story I want the public awareness of what a TRUE GERMAN SHEPHERD is and how they will lay down their life for their family if need be, that's the story that needs to be told, and should have been told.  What Chaos and I did was not only for us but for the safety of the entire neighborhood. Don't get me wrong selling one of our pups to a celebrity in itself is grand, a once in a life time opportunity. But for a dog with no former tracking experience to locate a wanted fugitive that's practically right in our own backyard and within minutes upon command that is epic!!! Chaos is an asset to the community! He is unique and truly one of a kind. I want everyone to know how PROUD we are of him!!! Kudos to you Chaos!!!

On Wednesday, August 20, 2014 when our local newspaper came out we read the article about the Manhunt in LaGrange but not one mention of us and our dog who located the wanted fugitive for law enforcement. In my opinion that's pretty sad, most of all hurtful as we did not think of our safety first when Chaos and I went out into the dark alone to help find this wanted fugitive. So I decided to post the story here, where it matters so everyone knows what a wonderful breed the German Shepherd dog truly is. 

 

This is looking out our front door on August 13, 2014. Law enforcement from many agencies were across the street, trying to locate the wanted fugitive.  This was night one.  He wasn't apprehended until the following night August 14, 2014 at approx 11 pm.

 

This is our yard (north property line) where Chaos tracked him.

Right smack to the fence line is where Chaos went.

 

This is the camper that the fugitive was hiding out in (next door to our property)

 

After the wanted fugitive exited the camper he was apprehended near this junk car.

 

Here are some emails received after this was posted...

Thank you all for your love and support !!!

Hi Kathy,

What a great story! Good for Chaos, and his hidden talents! You have quite a legacy going down! Beautiful dogs from superior breeding that can go to a family with so many talents, ie....intelligence, intuition, protection, couch buddy, companion, loving hearts, playfulness, but in an instant ready to defend his family. I think any dogs we have in the future will be German Shepard Dogs. That's all because of you, Kathy. We have learned so much from you, and that really enriched our relationship with Bear. I can't remember what we did for fun before Bear arrived in our lives. He charms anyone he comes in contact with! Children just love him, and he's so smart....he knows to lay on the ground so no one gets knocked over by his huge tail. He gives kisses, and children just giggle. We just love him so much, and are thankful that God sent us your way. Bear has been a welcomed addition to our family! Thank you so much for the love and devotion you give all your dogs and puppies!

Oh Kathy,


I was browsing thru your gallery and saw the news that Ulta
passed away. I am so sorry for your loss!!! I think of her
whenever Elsa cocks her head to the side.  I remember you
saying that Ulta did that also. She was such a beautiful
dog.  Some of my friends have lost their dogs this year- it is
so sad.  Elsa is doing well. She has earned 5 titles in agility
now and will be competing in the GSD trial at Purina Farms
this October. She isn't the fastest dog, but she sure does
try very hard and I am very proud of her.


I also read the article about Chaos - what a great dog.
I'm sure that you are very proud of him. I know no one
would try to enter our house with Elsa and our other two
dogs in the house.


I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you
and your family.


Take care of yourself- I will try to take photos of Elsa
after I give her a bath and send you some.

First you must be very proud of Chaos.  I will be telling that story for a long time. As for Ulta, we are so fortunate / proud to have one of of her pups. We are without words for your loss.

Kudos to both you AND Chaos, Kathy!! Great story, and so glad it turned out the way it did. You and Chaos both put your lives on the line that night, and it could have been a terrible outcome, so glad you are both OK.

I am in awe daily of our lovable Bullet. He is such a great dog,.. loyal and ever vigilant! He will lie at the entrance to the hallway leading to our bedroom as it’s his job to guard his humans. I was saddened to hear of his mother’s passing. Ulta gave us a wonderful gift, and I thank God every day for this amazing specimen of a dog.

Thank you for sharing your story with all your GSD family. It truly reinforces how superb these animals are!

Hope all is well with you, Willy and the rest of the pack!

Hi Kathy,

That sucks the paper never mentioned a word about you and Chaos, they should make Chaos a honorable police officer K-9 unit and give him a medal!!

At least you got a hug and the thrill of the hunt!! Gee, nothing exciting ever happens here.

I've been meaning to say hi to you all summer, how have you been?? I can't believe it's already past Labor Day!!! How did that happen?? We wait so long for summer here, then it's over before you know it. I even saw some fall colors in the trees today. My Brother's here for a visit, he's out bike riding in the mountains today. We've just had two weekends of rain and thunder showers and cold. Not fun, I had to get the Levi's out of the closet!! It's sunny today but only in the 70's which really isn't quite that bad. I'm just hanging out, waiting to leave for a Drs. appt soon. Glad you e-mailed me : )) I'll write you some more later xxoo hero

Here are updated photos of Emery at around 6 months old. She has completed her 2nd round of obedience classes. Here are some pics of her and a few with her half brother Zeus from Coco's 2013 litter. She is getting so big. She is doing well but she really misses the cold weather. We will have to decide soon if we will spay her before or after her first heat cycle. I've heard that it's better to wait and just as many people say that it should be done before she goes into heat so it is difficult to decide. Have you heard of anyone having any problems getting their dog spayed before or after going into heat? Hope Ava is doing well.


Courtney, Tim and Emery

Photo taken at 20 wks old on 4/05/14. Ava is trained on leash, knows all her basic obedience.  She is exceptional in every way!!!  Her favorite game is tug rag chase.  She has a superb temperament, very social and outgoing, well behaved, very loving and loyal.  She is the epitome of what a GS should be.  We are extremely proud of her.  She aims to please.  She is always focused, alert and obeys upon command.  At 16 wks old she was 45 pounds, she was the pick of the litter, nice boned female.  Absolutely GORGEOUS black and red German Shepherd.

Hi Kathy,

I must write you and let you know how Ben and CoCo's girl is doing. We decided to name our girl Adalheid (Heidi) meaning Noble, Kind. She is 17 weeks old now and getting so big. Last week at 16 weeks of age she was 35 pounds. Our vet was very impressed of how organized her folder and information you gave us was. Our Vet is always telling me how beautiful and intelligent Heidi is. She has had puppy socialization classes and has done very well. Heidi knows sit, lay, stand and shake. I enrolled her in obedience classes. Our first session was to learn the command "PLACE" which she has mastered for short periods of time. She is working on "HEEL" and "SIT" until she is given the command "FREE". Yes we practice our homework daily. Our Heidi is changing everyday, more red and white coat color. My son Connor looks at her everyday and tells me what has changed with her. She sleeps in her crate at night and her bedtime is 9:30. Will send you pictures soon. I hope all is well with you and your family and you should take that vacation to Hawaii.

Take Care,
The Youngberg Family

Just thought I would check in and let you know Kalli is doing great. We love her so much. We have been attending puppy classes and of course I think she is the smartest in class LOL. She graduates next week. We had her spayed this week and she did great. Can you believe she already weighs 40lbs?  People continually stop me and ask where we got her. We give out your website all the time.

She is so stunning!! I have had people get off of their bikes to come meet her.

Hope you and all the beautiful pups are doing well.

Take care,

Rhonda

Hi Kathy,

Hope all is well.  We had a great weekend and just had to share. Abbey and Lucas were invited by Blarney Stones Acres to walk in this years Cottleville St. Patrick's Day Parade.

The pictures I have sent you are before parade started, I am waiting for a CD of photos so I can send more. Abbey and Lucas were so awesome at this parade of about 65,000 people. As we walked they were able to meet many first responders, and police officers that were amazed at how beautiful and well behaved they were, not to mention how big Lucas was. Both of them have a fantastic temperament. As we walked many people asked to pet them and take pictures, they had never seen such beautiful dogs, and a few even asked if I was interested in selling them. (I would never sell them). This was the first big event for Lucas, and he handled it like a pro.  Abbey has been to several so she is more experienced.

Hope you have a great week.

Take Care,

Rita

Kathy,


Sorry it's been awhile since we have sent pics of Emery. She is doing great. She has the most alpha personality of any Shepherd that I've ever owned. She has definitely lived up to her name (house ruler). She loves all the people and dogs that she meets especially at the dog park. As you will see in one of the pics, her absolute favorite thing in the world is playing with sticks. Once she gets one it is HERS. She started puppy class in early March and she is doing great. Everyone comments on how smart, beautiful and well behaved she is. We got her a prong collar and it works great. We barely have to use it to correct her when it is on. She has learned sit, down, stay, shake with both paws and is now working on heel. We like seeing all the pics of her litter mates. At four months she was 37 pounds and growing every day. We are looking forward to when all of those sharp puppy teeth are finally out. We will update you with pics as she gets older.

Tell Ava hi from her sister Emmy.


Tim and Courtney

Inside the book she writes:

"Kathy, without you, I would not have Sheba.  Without Sheba, this book would not have been written.

Thank You!

"Loving Again Precious Chelsea and the Queen of Sheba" by Karen Blaser.

Loving Again: Precious Chelsea and the Queen of Sheba is a heartwarming story of a woman who received the gift of a German Shepherd puppy. Never before experiencing the love that these four-legged "children" unconditionally give, Chelsea wins over her heart. This dog is now part of the family and creates memories that will make you laugh and cry as Chelsea succumbs to old age. The pain of losing Chelsea is almost unbearable, and as the years pass she thinks this bond of love will never happen again. Then along comes Sheba, and Karen finds herself loving again. This book includes stories that not only amuse, but also give the realities and responsibilities of owning a pet and training them, so when they are older you will still want them to be part of the family. This book is a must read for all ages!

Hey Kathy,

As you can see Emma has made herself very comfortable on our bed.
Emma is a beautiful puppy. I've had people drive by us and stop their vehicles to take pictures of her.

Emma is our fifth German Shepherd.  She is super intelligent, fearless.  So far, she's mastered sit, come, lay down and gives you both paws. I know I didn't tell you but I sustained a traumatic brain injury while on duty as a police officer. I suffer from PTSD.  I go into my cave and don't get out of bed for days. Emma has broken that cycle. I love her and she probably saved my life.

Thank you Kathy.

Hi Kathy,

Berit is just great!  We have a private trainer coming tomorrow just to get her started with obedience etc.,   They really don't want us to bring her to classes at least for 3 weeks. 

Our vet was very impressed!  She was happy with all the papers, contract, health record etc.,

I hope you don't mind, but she copied your business card.  She said the breeders around here are not professional and she would like to refer you to her clients.

Thank you so much!  I am so glad we found you!

I'll send you pictures in a month or so.

Thanks,
Angie

Loved the pic of Ava. Here is her sister Kalli getting ready for a nap yesterday. Isn't she the cutest?  We just love her. She spends her day with our other GSD Marley. Getting better at potty training. She can now use the doggy door and just started going down steps on Monday. Her vet appointment went well last week. She weighs 22lbs. Try carrying that down the steps all the time. LOL.   Stay warm!!

Hi Kathy:

The veterinarian found Vento in excellent health. In 2 weeks Vento will receive booster vaccinations, and when the time is up he will receive the rabies shot.

Vento is a super nice fellow. Last night he slept through without entertaining the neighborhood.  Since we sleep by open doors to the balcony he eliminates on the balcony now keeping the bedroom clean.  :)


We are working on chewing. Lots of toys yet he takes to them rather slowly. Untying shoes is much more fun.


Regards,
Gunter

We are still in Saint Louis since temperature was 9 degrees and did not meet the airline requirements. We have a good time together and are on the way of becoming big friends.  What a lively little fellow he us.
Many thanks for the food. We have started to use some of the taped food that is on his crate already.
Regards,
Gunter

Hi Kathy,  

I hope you had a very merry Christmas and a happy new year! We had a beautiful Christmas in our house. We just love it here, Berlin included. I'm going to send you over some pics of the holidays and just a few of around the house.   I love little miss Ava, she is too cute! I do think that by this summer, if not sooner, we are going to be ready for another addition. Stephen and I were thinking about maybe getting a male puppy from you. What do you think? We did have a male Doberman puppy for about 8 months that I was keeping for my brother that Berlin did really well with so I think it might work. I'll keep track of your litters and let you know once we're ready.   Let me know what you think of the pictures :)

Talk to you soon,

Suzanne

PS: the one of Berlin laying by the sliding glass door is too funny. I had the door open and with the pool being out there I told her don't you go out that door. Well a few minutes passed and I didn't hear or see her so I walk into the living room and see her laying right in front of the door with just the tip of her nose poking outside the door lol she's such a good girl!

Kathy,    

Here are some pics of Emery "Emmy". We picked the name because in German it means "house ruler" and in American it means "brave and powerful". I'm sure she will have no trouble living up to those meanings! Emmy did such a great job on the drive home, she slept most the way and occasionally had to check out the window! She has been having so much fun in her new surroundings and meeting the family. She is a good girl. Enjoy the pics, and thanks again for such a great puppy!  We will continue to update you with pics, 
Tim and Courtney

This is "Thor" a male pup from Ben x Bella's 11/13/13 litter.

Thor now resides with Dave & Stephanie in Fenton, MO.

Hi Kathy
Just wanted to send you a pic of Thor.  We took him to the vet and she said all is well. I will send the document over to you tomorrow.
Thor is perfect!!!  His doctor said he is gonna be close to 90 lbs and we couldn't be happier!!!  I finally got the big doggy/child we wanted lol
Awesome German Shepherd. On the first day I brought him home he had a few accidents but I'm telling you he is sooo intelligent that he has not gone in the house since the first day.  We read a lot of books and watched videos on how to interact as pack leaders and stuff and by following that, this has been the most rewarding experience ever.  It's not easy but I will say with Thor being as smart as he is, this has been the easiest training we have ever done!!!  You have an awesome breed of German Shepherd dogs.  Kudos to you for doing all you do so when we get to take our puppies home there pretty much ready for the new home. Thanks again and we will send pics as he grows :)
Love my Thor to pieces !!!!  This is one big puppy and everywhere I take him people are in awe. My friends won't stop calling after I post a pic on Facebook begging to come see him lol

This is "Ace" a male pup from Coco x Ben's January 2013 litter.

 

 

 

Hi Kathy,

Just wanted to send you a few pictures of Ace.  He is getting big. He looks a lot like his mother. He is very protective of everybody in the family. We all know he is a big baby though. He really is a good dog. He minds very well. He hates the thought of us being mad at him. That is all it takes for discipline. Everything is a game to him. I hope he doesn't lose that when he gets older. He loves the snow and cold. He stays inside with us. I am amazed at how the cold doesn't effect him.  He is really good with our Shitzu.  We live in the country there are a lot of Coyotes. We worry about Skittles (The Shitzu) being outside without us. If she is ever outside and we don't know where she is, we just tell Ace to go find Skittles. He will run and find her and stay with her until she comes in.
