German Shepherds are Always Amazing

Mila’s new mom shared this amazing story, and I just had to share!

Our female is absolutely amazing. Best temperament, easy to train and an absolute sweetheart. However, I have an extraordinary story to share about my young pup. Mila (our female puppy) has a sense of medical issues. At 14.5 weeks old she was able to detect an extremely painful, gallbladder attack before it occurred! I typically experience these attacks once every year or two. It was about an hour and a half before it started (note that there is NO warning sign for these, one minute I’m fine, the next horrible pain that lasts about 6 hours) and Mila was licking, pawing and whining right where my gallbladder is. At first, I thought maybe I spilled so food or something on my shirt, so I changed my shirt, but she continued. Then a little over an hour later, I had an attack. Mila did not leave my side for the entire time. No matter what way I tried to lay in bed to get comfortable she would move her body to press up against my gallbladder. Normally she is crated at night and does great, no whining or anything...but this particular night she whined and whined until she was with me. Having her warm body and the slight pressure of her body next to me really actually helped. The next day I was back to normal, and Mila went to her crate for bed no problem. I’m so excited to work with this gift of hers. — Christina

We are a hobby German Shepherd breeder located in Illinois just outside of Chicago. We are a breeder of top, world-class quality German Shepherd puppies of West German bloodlines with impeccable Temperaments and type. If you are looking for a German Shepherd puppy or an adult dog suitable for confirmation, obedience, therapy, assistance dog, search and rescue, K-9 training, schutzhund or for the ever present loyal companion... we can help you!! Occasionally, we do have long coat German Shepherd puppies available as well. All litters are raised in our home, well socialized and each held and cuddled several times a day. The result is a pup that is comfortable around people, children, vehicles and other animals. It is not uncommon for our puppies to be housebroken by the time they leave our house.

I have been actively showing and breeding since 1996, and have always had West German lines. I use the pronoun "I", but could not do this without backup from my family. I breed because I love German Shepherds. Quality German Shepherd breeders follow the German rules. With my puppies, I strive to improve this wonderful breed. This is not how I make my living, but how I choose to spend my time.
