Something About Us
First of all we would like to "Thank You" for Visiting our Website!
We live in Hooks, Texas which is in the northeast corner of Texas or what we call the "Arklatex". We manage a small "home raised" breeding program just outside of town.
We only breed German Shepherds because of our love of the breed. We Plan our litters carefully toward our goal of improving progeny.
Sires X Dams are carefully selected to bring out the very best of the German Shepherd Standard.
The breed standard of correct structure and willingness to work along with the ability to be a loyal and faithful companion is what we are striving to preserve.
The standard was set by Max von Stephanitz
(pictured below) in 1899, who took notice of a hard Working Shepherd dog named Hektor von Linkshein, whom he thought to be an outstanding example of "true herding type". This dog became the foundation upon which all German Shepherd Dogs would follow.
Max von Stephanitz said:
"The breeder can indeed lay the foundations of a good and serviceable dog but the trainer must see to it that they bring to their highest possible development, the physical and mental foundations already laid and thus his is the more grateful task."
"Take this trouble for me. Make sure my Shepherd Dog remains a Working Dog, for I have struggled all my life long for that aim."

The stately German Shepherd
Protective, bold and smart,
Looked into my eyes one day
And quickly stole my heart.
Courageous and endearing,
A favorite of the breeds,
So proud and yet so loving,
A steadfast friend indeed.
Faithful to the core
If you have a Shepherd’s love,
You cannot want for more.
