I purchased from Cindy and feel great about the decision. Yakaia Vom Herzbach is Yoschi's littermate. Everything worked as Cindy described. I recently posted some pics of Kaia. Kaia is a longstock, which is exactly what we wanted. Cindy offers her help and experience all along the way and seems to know the breed very well. Kaia's pink papers arrived as advertised. I believe Elite German Shepherds breedings which come from Germany have a very strong pedigree to them and it shows.
