I don't know of them personally, but I checked the website. I see where the pups available come from parents whose hips are good. I would ask about the parentage cleared for DM as I didn't see that listed.

Thanks! That's just the kind of insight I need. I'm visiting this saturday and will make a note to ask about that. What does DM stand for by the way?

SHIRAZ FARMS GSD - in VA
I am getting a pup from them. I was very impressed with the breeding and all there dogs.
The dogs are raised with the family.

They are West German confirmation dogs not working dogs. I am hoping for my new pup to start training as a therapy dog.

I have looked and researched many breeder in PA - MD - VA for the right dogs to be able to use for service. I am really happy with this breeder.

Will be getting pup in a few weeks.

We picked up our puppy over the weekend. She is a beautiful healthy happy girl. Vet check went great. I was very happy with the process with Shiraz Farm Germn Shepherds.
Good dogs.

I'm new to this forum and notice this thread. I bought our GS from Shiraz and extremely pleased with our new family member(beginning of 2013). I was impressed with this breeder, she (Leigh) is extremely committed to the integrity of the breed. Our guy has an incredible disposition, beautiful conformation and highly intelligent. The thing that impressed me most when visiting for the first time, was the temperament of all of her dogs on site. The nursery area for mom and her pups was incredibly clean and what struck me most, was how quiet it was, which is telling how mom and pups are cared for. The mother never barked when we walked...she appeared to be well socialized. The breeder new each individual pups personality and which would best suit us.....no doubt she spends time with them to observe behavior for proper placement(families with young children, service dogs, etc).

Now, for those looking for a GS, please do your homework. Make sure you have time, patience, $, and dedication to make your GS the dog they are meant to be. They need a lot of your attention in their formative years in order to become sound dogs. Their intelligence sets them apart, thus requires work on your part. Please socialize them (this is the key)...they are naturally protective, so you need to rein that in and remind them you are not their herd;) by being consistent with your training---rewarding with love and affection is as equally important.

Any pics of your pup as she is growing that you would share? Who are her parents? I checked out their website and I love the way their dogs look.

I have been there twice to visit/inquire and was impressed with the temperament of the dogs and the professionalism of the breeder Leigh. I placed a deposit for a puppy and feel confident that the right decision was made after comparing to other breeders.

Thrilled with Shiraz Farms

Over the past 3 years we have purchased two beautiful German Shepherd puppies from Shiraz Farms and we are thrilled with our dogs. Having 6 children in our family, Leigh and Roger took time to ask questions about our family life to ensure that they helped us find the perfect dogs with the right temperament for our lifestyle. We couldn’t be happier. Harper, our 2.5 year old female GSD, and Wrigley, our 1.5 year old female GSD, are the perfect fit for our family. Each dog has amazing color with beautiful coats and they are great with children. Leigh and Roger are focused on breeding dogs who will be healthy and not suffer from hip dysplasia. Great care and attention to detail is placed on genetics and bloodlines to ensure great temperament and healthy dogs. We have our dogs checked annually and our dogs are in perfect health.

Roger and Leigh stay involved after you take the puppies home and are always to answer questions as needed. In fact they offered basic obedience training with a master trainer to ensure that our dogs were well behaved and well trained. In addition to basic obedience, Roger and Leigh offer more advanced obedience training and agility training which I plan to take advantage of in the future.

We love Shiraz Farms so much that when we go on vacation, there is no better place for our dogs to stay than Shiraz Farms. Nestled at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountain Leigh and Roger offer the ideal boarding experience with over 100 acres, heated kennels and personalized attention. It makes it easier for my family to enjoy vacation when they know that Harper and Wrigley are wonderfully cared for and having fun.

If you want a high quality German Shepherd puppy with great temperament, high energy and in excellent health, look no further than Shiraz Farm.

Beautiful dogs you Have! But were you or the breeder not concerned with placing two females in the same home?
