As a premier German Shepherd Breeder, Southernwind is dedicated to providing exceptional quality German Shepherd Puppies to discerning families and individuals. Our values encompass a deep commitment to breeding standards that prioritize temperament, health, and genetic integrity.

When considering the cost or value of a German Shepherd Puppy or Young Adult, it's essential to recognize the distinction between monetary cost and intrinsic value. While our puppies may command a higher price point compared to some breeders, their true worth extends far beyond mere financial considerations.

The value of our German Shepherd Puppies lies in the myriad of contributions and benefits they bring to their new families or owners throughout their lifetime. This includes not only companionship but also their potential to excel in various roles, from loyal family pets to accomplished working dogs.

Our puppies' elevated value is attributed to several factors. Firstly, we meticulously select and invest in superior bloodlines, ensuring that our breeding stock adheres strictly to correct standard structure conformation. Additionally, we spare no expense in sourcing top-of-the-line females with proven temperaments and characters. These females undergo comprehensive health clearances for hips and elbows from reputable organizations such as FCI, AKC, or SV.

Furthermore, our breeding program benefits from decades of research and evaluation. We invest significant time and resources into researching and evaluating both our dogs and their progeny. This includes regular travel to Germany to personally assess and select dogs that meet our stringent criteria for inclusion in our breeding program.

Unlike some breeders who may prioritize cost-cutting measures, we prioritize quality and integrity at every step of the breeding process. Our extensive knowledge of our dogs' well-balanced lineage, spanning over four decades, allows us to provide genetic guarantees for the mental soundness, nerve stability, and eager-to-please attitude of their offspring.

In essence, while the cost of our German Shepherd Puppies may be significant, their unparalleled value is a testament to our unwavering commitment to producing dogs of exceptional quality, temperament, and health.
