Default Looking for a King Shephard

I am a german shephard owner and we have decided to add on to our family. We have decided that we are interested in getting a larger shephard 90 pounds plus and have seen some photos of some beautiful king shephards.

Is there anyone on here who owns a king shephard or a larger breed shephard and can tell us where we could go to get one?

Thank you

Aren't King Shepherds a completely different breed? Actually a mixed breed?

Can't help on locating a King Shepherd, but if you post your location it might help others steer you in the right direction.
Also, it's Shepherd not Shephard (it's a herding dog).

Yes, a king Shepherd is not a full blooded German shepherd. They come from German shepherds and other large guardian dogs. They do not qualify for AKC registration do to the inconsistencies in their offspring. I owned one at one time. They are very beautiful and large, but not a standard German shepherd!

I'm not going to try and talk you out of a king shepherd, just want to add, if you do find a breeder, make sure all your health testing (hips & elbows) are in order.

You can find BIG german shepherds if you look around, one posted Royalaire.

Just to add, sometimes dogs look bigger than they actually are. People used to think my male Dodge was HUGE, when in fact he was within standard and weighed about 85 lbs at his heaviest.

I have met a few shilohs who looked enormous but most of it was coat and they weren't as heavy as shilohs are supposedly.

Exactly! When I bought my King shepherd they said he was around 130lbs. And he looked every bit of that, but he actually only weighed 93 lbs. Most of the size was just the long hair. He was very a very large boned dog, but not as big as advertised. He also only had one descended testicle. A lot of people say the health issues with this breed is not worth the risk. I learned to just stick with the real thing. A purebred GSD.

Thank you for the advice. I still want a king shepherd though. I have seen the videos and don't care if i cannot show them. I am in b.c. canada and there does not seem to be any king shepards here. Normally they are about 140 pounds. I did some research on them under king shepherds wikipedia.
THey are gentle giants and there is more than enough shephard in them to say they are real shephards.

Any links would be helpful as well as anyone on here who owns one and can tell me where to purchase. I am going through king shepherd withdrawals.
