We are truly blessed to be able to work with our AKC Purebred German Shepherds and AKC Purebred Field Golden Retrievers and sweet cross bred Goldensheps. Those of you who own both breeds know how lovely they compliment each other. The Loyalty and protectiveness can't be matched in a good German Shepherd dog just as the simple love and devotion is untouched in the Golden Retriever. Those who have a Golden Shep know the gentle, loving watchdogs this awesome cross breeding creates, causing a beautiful blend of both breeds !

Goldensheps have a Special Place in Our Hearts!
Sometimes the unexpected turns out to be a Spectacular Thing !
Crossing the GSD with the Golden Retriever produces much stronger Genetics, intelligence, balanced temperament, ease of training,
confidence, loyalty and love.
Many Good reports have come in from our Goldenshep families confirming good health, quality companionship, ease of Training and more. They are often referred to as "Gentle Watchdogs"
As our veterinarian has since advised us, With all the Environmental Estrogens and finding good genetics getting more difficult, in the animal breeding world today, The Cross Breeds will always come through.
What breeds make our 1/2 Crossbred Goldensheps ?
A one generation, 1 time Breeding of 2 purebred- AKC Registered Dogs. This way you know exactly what possible traits you are getting from each parent. We take this very seriously and do not support or suggest crossing just any breeds.
What breeds make our 3/4 Goldensheps ?
1 Generation breeding of one pure Bred ( Golden Retriever male or German Shepherd male ) to a 1/2 Golden Retriever and 1/2 German Shepherd male to a Goldenshep female. These puppies make Excellent Companions for those who have a little more preference for the one breed over the other.
All purebred dogs of today are a result of generations of cross breeding of several breeds, out crossing and heavy inbreeding.
( Inbreeding : Breeding very close relatives Or repeated multiple generations of close relatives to obtain a like produced puppy)
Much of this inbreeding continues today and has caused problems in finding dogs that are "Breed Worthy "
How our Goldenshep Cross Breeding started
We never thought, when we got our first ooops litter that our attitudes about Cross Breeds would change our opinion of Crossbreeding so dramatically.
Our GSD, Kobiri, was in a kennel run with our GSD girl, Tashina, next to our Golden girl Jovina. My hubby got out to the kennel just in time to see that Tashina was holding the fence up that she and Kobiri had worked loose and that Kobiri was in the next pen, breeding Jovina.
I called my vet in a state of frantic panic. My vet started to chuckle and said, " I knew that would happen some day. She'll be fine and have 9 puppies" , And she did. 9 beautiful black and black/white babies arrived that changed our kennel forever.
We went on from there to understand even more about Cross breeding. No they are not "mutts", they are not " Hybrids ". They are Cross Breeds and thorough more research, reaffirmed that all of the Pure Breed dog breeds have been produced from Cross Breeding. Increasing Knowledge and understanding about Cross breeding has greatly changed our attitude and that has become a great blessing to us.
I learned , through this experience that not all new things in life are bad. Change can be a good thing, especially when it comes with the little bundles of love that we adore so much !!!
We can say that we are thankful for the many good things that have happened with this kennel and that we have all been Truly Blessed by the unexpected Goldenshep Breedings !
