|Andrea Thacker||Well I've been on her property and have seen close that the dogs are in kennels and the moms whelp in a barn. Both my Kaiser and Nikolai needed multiple baths because they smelled like pig manure. As far as exercise and training I can't say. Very small area and not a large "staff'. Family of a few do the work. I did feel bad the dogs were enclosed so closely. But again she isn't raising and charging for show quality or claiming champion bloodlines. Just cute social fat fuzzy stinky pups. Her star sire is gorgeous. He is father to Nikolai and has his own progeny page. Check him out.|

I would be worried about the QUANTITY of dogs. I counted 8 breeding females, 3 breeding males, and mulitple litters born about one month after the other. Also there aren't pictures of most of the litters until they're 11,12,13 weeks old. Nothing against the owner, but unless they have a Staff that works there, I think it would be very hard for the dogs to get all of the care, love, attention, exercise, and training that they need.
But again, no disrespect to the kennel owner, we don't have all of the information.

|Andrea Thacker||Is it unusual to have various bloodlines in one kennel? I know a couple of her dogs in years past she had imported from Germany and Czech Republic|

|nezzz||I would stay clear, the guy definitely doesn't know breeding. Bloodlines are all over the place with mixes of DDR, Czech, WG and pets. Hip certification uses different nomenclature from FCI to OFA to Germany without consistency. And the hips aren't even that fantastic either. And the dogs don't look like they are in good condition either.|

As a breeder myself (beagles), looking at this website there is NO consistency with their dogs, they ALL look different. Which tells me that they will breed anything to anything to have a litter of puppies. Also any "breeder" that has that many dogs available ON JUST THE FEMALES PAGE .and they are all adults that's not even the puppies.. Something's up... I didn't even look at any of the other pages to see what was available.
That health guarantee, I can assume that the reason they put that on there is to cover their asses. When we name puppies when they are still with us we try to go with a theme but, a lot of times the new owners will change their names. So you can almost assume that this was happening to them and they thought "hey... We could cut out a health guarantee for people who change names and they will be none the wiser".
Besides that, like someone else posted, these dogs look used up, exhausted, unhappy.
I personally would stay away.

|Andrea Thacker||I would return to this breeder for another. Actually planning it this summer. Of course I am interested in pet quality only and I always neuter and spay. Nik is my fifth shepherd in my lifetime and by far the healthiest and has the shiniest coat.|

Most the dogs on the page I'm looking at lack proper angulation, many in the rear but also some in the front as well.
