Breeding is a science and a responsibility. We are firm
believers in quality not quantity. We select only top West
German bloodlines, with proven success at work and in the
confirmation ring. Our breeding stock is temperament tested
with Schutzhund methods. All breeding stock hips have been
x-rayed in Germany or the USA. USA (OFA) Germany ("a"
normal). The bloodlines have been DNA certified. The registration
of the SV (Vereine fur deutsche schaferhunde - Germany) are
stringent and well thought out. The SV standards pay particular
attention to only breeding dogs with no hip dysplasia (HD).
We also offer custom importing from puppy with SV pink papers,
untitled adult with pink papers and x-rays, titled competition
dogs and select studs and bitches for select breeding programs.
The lineage to these dogs are proven producers in the sport
of Schutzhund, search and rescue, show and confirmation ring,
police, herding, protection, obedience and tracking. They
are bred for temperament, health, superior intelligence and
Some people say, "We are just looking for a pet."
I ask them, "Are you looking for an ugly dog of poor
quality, questionable temperament, health and heritage?"
I say to them, "Do you want something that resembles
a German shepherd?" Or, "Are you looking for an
excellent companion dog that will provide your family with
years of enjoyment?" Our dogs will turn heads as you
walk down the street, they are dogs that you can be proud
of. These dogs are so smart and alert there might be times
that you question your own intelligence. People will say,
"WOW! Where did you get that German shepherd?" Why
would you want a dog that will make people say, "Is that
a German shepherd?"
Be sure our dogs are distinctive and everything a true German
shepherd should be. They are natural watch dogs, guardians
and protectors. Once you have lived with one of these special
dogs, you will experience a unique personality as it soon
grows into your family. The West German shepherds are bred
to have working ability combined with high-line confirmation,
that equals an intelligent dog that is healthy and pleasing
to the eye.
We work hard at planning a litter and researching our pedigrees,
the proof is in the bloodlines. All we have ever owned is
German shepherds imported from Germany, we have been a strict
follower of German shepherds for well over a decade. We like
the West German Sieger-line shepherds best of all. We Schutzhund
train as a hobby in a small group our dogs must be willing
to work and please, otherwise it defeats the ethics of the
working breed. A well bred German shepherd should be clear
in the head, secure and stable, and a pleasure to live with
in the house.
We thank you very much for choosing a Von Himmel GSD, be certain
our number one concern is about the dogs well being and your
satisfaction. Good luck with your high-line GSD. They are
truly unique dogs indeed, with a personality to match. A superior
quality dog of uncompromising character.

We assist beginner breeders in forming a breeding program out of world class West German bloodlines. We enjoy sharing our many years of knowledge with these special German shepherds because some beginners think that a German shepherd is a German shepherd, nothing could be further from the truth. There are several different levels in Europe, West German Sieger lines being the highest rated for the total German shepherd and the many variations of the lower end German shepherds that we know here in America. The AKC style German shepherd here in America is very different with structure, working ability, temperament and color as compared to the SV German, German shepherd style in Germany (remember that country Germany,where the German shepherd was originated ! ! ! ) .
