Here at vom Haus am Lerchenweg we have a specific breeding program that enables us to produce a German Shepherd that is not only striking in beauty, bust also has intelligence and strength at heart. We follow very closely with the goals of the founder of the German Shepherd, Max von Stephanitz, had in mind when he purchased the first German Shepherd in 1899 and started the SV. Herr Stephanitz taught us that the best German Shepherd was the one bred to be the "Golden Middle", this was the dog with beauty intelligence the heart to protect his herd, family. Herr Stephanitz was quoted once for saying:
"The breeder on a small scale, one who works with one or two bitches, is the most suitable breeder for working dogs because he can care for his breeding animals and their progeny... and can produce sound strong animals that can be trained"
vom Haus am Lerchenweg has taken this as to our number one rule for our breeding program. We have been breeding German Shepherds since 1991 and have been fortunate enough to have produced VA dogs as well as dogs that have competed in the BSP.
Our current breeding females are Lilly vom Haus am Lerchenweg and Rinett vom Frankengold. Rinett is going to retire within the next year or so, and we are excited about Uni von der Plassenburg taking her place. We have kept a male and a female out of Lilly, our Tequila vom Haus am Lerchenweg and Nelly vom Haus am Lerchenweg.
