LOCATED IN MIDDLETON, IDAHO
Here at Patchwork Shepherds we are striving to provide families with the "perfect" pet. We want to give people a dog that not only can be a great family companion but could also compete in the show ring, herding, working and/or obedience ring. All of our dogs come from titled working lines. Although we do NOT do SchH with our dogs because that is not what we like to do they do have the ability to do it. We focus our attention on herding because that is the actual reason that a German Shepherd was bred. Herding is what they are meant to do and if a GSD can't do herding than it is not breed quality in our eyes. Although many people think that because we do not do actual SchH work with our dogs then they should not be bred but I disagree with that. I have met MANY MANY SchH titled dogs that do NOT make good pets. The majority of people out there want a good pet and if their dog does not turn out that way then what happens to the dog? Here we try to raise beautiful dogs with sound temperaments. Our dogs have constant attention and are taken out herding, to the park, pet stores and on walks to insure that they are not bothered by anything and to keep them socialised. All of our dogs that we own are either imports or are import lined. We also offer ALL puppies with hip/health guarantees. Our dogs are hip checked and certified with a PASSING grade in either OFA, PENNHIP or "a" stamp.
The MOST important thing that we do is to breed dogs with strong temperaments and that are very outgoing and trustworthy. The puppies are raised being handled daily and are very well socialized. None of our dogs are left alone when they are whelping their puppies. We are there the whole time to assist and to insure that our puppies have the best chance possible. We also stay to insure that our mothers have a safe and easy delivery. By the time that a puppy is 8 weeks and ready to go to its new home it will have had at least 3 wormings and 1 shot. All puppies come with a full puppy packet with information on everything relating to what food it is on to pictures of parents, grandparents etc (if available).
