We are a small, home based kennel operation breeding to the AKC Standard. Our dogs are members of the family and live in the house. Hence, we keep few dogs and breed only one litter a year. Our puppies are also born and raised in our home; we feel this early exposure to normal daily noises and activities at a young age gives our pups a better start. This FAMILY atmosphere helps the pups be well socialized, especially with children. Each litter is carefully planned with an emphasis on Health, Temperament & Structural Soundness. At Lianna Shepherds we believe in QUALITY not Quantity, we do not breed just to produce puppies. Our breeding stock is either OFA Certified or X-rayed free of Hip and Elbow Dysplasia as well as being screened for Temperament and Genetic health problems. Each puppy purchased from Lianna Shepherds comes with: An AKC registration certificate. A health record listing vaccinations, worming, & Vet visits. A sales contract / health guarantee. A pedigree and laser color photo-copies of the parents. A 17.5lb bag of puppy food as well as feeding information. A leash, collar, toy, pig ear, chew hoof, crate training / potty training flyer, & a copy of the book "Guide To Owning A German Shepherd" by Timothy Orban.
