German Shepherd canines history
The Burgess family have had the love of dogs for
generations. Our grandfather was very involved in English Pointers
and competing in field trils with famous "Thunder
Bay Dan", in the mid 40's through the 60's. During the 60's we were
involved with German Weimaraner. The mid 70's we started
breeding German Shepherds.
We introduced the Mini Pins in the early 90's
We still breed with the the love of our dogs top on our
list like our grandfather did many years ago.
We breed 100% World Class AKC, West German, East German,
Czechoslovakia Blood Lines.
We sell our dogs for the purposes of Family, Working/SAR,
Protection, and Estate Dogs
We Breed For Quality not Quantity

Our kennel was updated in 2007. This update included
Heated Cement Floors, and Air Conditioned Indoor Kennels
