We’re researching breeders of short haired, GSDs, prefer White coloring (not long haired WS/BB) then gray sable but really will go after temperament and health for pet quality family member.

Are there any Washington short haired, White GSDs reputable breeders/kennels?

I ran across this kennel,
Heidenroslein German Shepherds LLC,
https://heidenrosleingermanshepherds.com/ from AKC marketplace.

Are there any members that have pups from Heidenroslein?

I fell in love with an awesome GSD in Cannon Beach, OR hanging out it’s owner’s gallery but breeder has since retired.

There is nothing on the website that would make me want to buy a dog from them. It's possible they are doing more than the website shows, I don't know?

I'd recommend my dog's breeder but she is on the east coast and that doesn't really help you. I don't know if AWSA might be able to recommend someone.

Hello WA Family and WELCOME!

The HEIDENROSLEIN GERMAN SHEPHERDS site is very vague.
Does not show any sires or dams, does not show health testing which is VERY important when purchasing a GSD. Their site is a red flag for me.

Give this thread a several days for response. There are several on this board with White GSD's that may be able to help.

Please remember that this is a 10 year or more commitment, so don't rush into it and be opened to travel outside your area or even have a pup shipped.
We traveled 1500 miles for one of our dogs!!


Great statement from Wolfstraum (WL breeder) on this board: “Distance should NOT be the criteria by which you choose a dog - but knowledge of the dogs and what they bring to the breeding and where they are going in the future in their breeding program should be more important.”


Best of luck in your search!

@Thecowboysgirl and @Momto2GSDs - thank you both for your honest comments. This is our first breeder purchase and it’s a little intimidating considering the effort and money that will go in the puppy or dog.

The primary reason we’re considering local breeders is the physical and mental stress to the puppy when being shipped; granted I haven’t researched this yet.

Something to consider, a well bred puppy that has a genetically stable temperament and comes from a breeder that is putting a lot of effort into the health of the pup should have no issue being shipped or going on a long car ride. I recently drove from Ft. Worth, Texas, to Ottawa, Kansas, to pick up my current puppy. The drive was harder on me than the pup, he did great and assimilated into the home without issue. I know lots of breeders who ship pups regularly with zero issue.

My King Charles came from Minneapolis and flown to Airport in New Jersey in a February many years ago. The flight was cancelled once due to weather and then a few delays. She was absolutely fine and alwAys solid pup. So I would not hesitate to ship if the breeder ships as long as they come very highly recommend. I always like going to visit the breeder as exciting experience but picking her up at the airport was very exciting to and remember it to this very day and getting lost on the way home lol! Consider breeders who you cAn speak to happy owners even if they are far away.

Though he has a different kind of temperament from other GSDs I've had (and have), I really like my white shepherd. I would look for a breeder who health tests their breeding stock and titles them in show and/or some kind of performance/work. Although white shepherds aren't allowed to show in the AKC, they can compete in UKC or other venues. This isn't a recommendation as I haven't met the breeders or their dogs in person, but I think this list is a good place to start.
