Never heard of them and I'm a native of Illinois all my life. I could be wrong but there is a kennel around Palo's hills that is not a AKC breeder but a ukc breeder

World Wide Kennel Club, eh? I wonder if they sneaked some of their Newfs in the line to get the dogs so big. Sorry, but this just SCREAMS backyard breeder to me. No information on health testing or titles or lines or anything, just tiny photos of dogs. Also, the GSD breed is NOT a large breed- it is a medium sized breed with a weight range of 55-100 lbs and 100 lbs is pushing it- an ideal male size is around 85-90 lbs. Anyone breeding for giant GSDs is not breeding GSDs. With all the joint problems this breed has, bigger is NOT better- I'd like to see a 130 lb GSD do agility without breaking down after a few months. If you want a big GSD, it's best to go with a GOOD breeder who does do health testing and temperament tests (some sort of working titles), one who is planning a breeding of dogs at the top of the standard not because they are large but because they have such awesome qualities otherwise and just *happen* to be large.

Right in that neighborhood is Animal Welfare League - a local shelter.

Go in there and ask where most of the older, unmanageable GSDs they get in come from.
