"Angels on Assignment"
Welcome to our website. If you take some time to read about us, you will come to understand why our dogs are called "Angels on Assignment" and some of the most beautiful and finest quality German Shepherd dogs in America. We produce a limited number of puppies each year to approved applicants who are looking for a high-quality, well-bred, companion dog.
Our dogs are registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC) in the German Shepherd category and we comply with the recommendations of this registry including health testing of the parents of our puppies. Our reputation is built upon a philosophy we pioneered in 1999 when we discovered the Shepherd breed, valued for their intelligence, to be the closest to a "human with fur" of any other breed. Instead of a focusing on appearance, like most show breeders, we made health and temperament our top priority. Our "No-kennel, No-Cage" approach to dog rearing means we have fewer than six (6) adult dogs at all times and our dogs are happier living with their human family on a beautiful acreage here in the Pacific Northwest. We are shaking up the dog world. Take, for example, the appearance of the standard German Shepherd in this photo:
Dogs bred with these traits often end up with crippling disabilities and premature death. This is so inhumane. Our focus, on the other hand, is to produce dogs with straight backs and a broad stance, as in the photo of Polarbear's foundation sire, Shack Von Hammer.
Aside from their magnificent appearance, we've been able to produce dogs with calm, sociable, and affectionate dispositions. They are gifted empaths and comedians at heart. Their goofy personalities and love of children make them perfect nannies for even the youngest child. They love water, retrieving frisbees, and diving into the occasional swimming pool. What dog does all that? Ours do! And they are living fulfilled lives, as medical detection dogs, service dogs, and family and companion dogs in nearly every state in the United States!

You'll find tips, tricks, and "Words of Warning" to those wary of buying a dog on the internet. If you could take away one piece of advise after you leave us, it would be this:
