Our "Meet and Greet" scheduled Visits
Many people question, if they can come by to "take a look" or play with our German Shepherd puppies before they are placing a deposit or decide to buy one of them. We completely understand the enthusiasm and curiosity to see "What type of GSD we breed"?
But.. due to many factors, it is not possible to offer these possibilities. We would like you to understand, that you are one of many people (sometimes as many as 20 a day!) Which want to come by to see our German Shepherd puppies for sale.!
Meeting 20 families daily (!), would be very time-consuming for us and there is always a risk that one out of them, accidentally brings in a virus or parasite. Differently from a Pet Store, these German Shepherd puppies are raised as a part of our family, where we live with our family. For the safety of our puppies and our privacy, we only meet with families which have placed a reservation deposit and are ready to purchase a puppy on the same day.
We can provide you with large 5-star testimonials, from families which got a puppy from us in the past. You can also read our reviews on Google. Also, you may visit our YouTube Channel or subscribe to our newsletter where we send information about the coming litters, their pedigrees, and Special caracteristics.
If you decide to go along With the "Meet and Greet" Visits We can only allow a maximum of 2 visitors at our premises, 2 adults and 3 children (well behaved).
Visits are limited to 45-60 minutes for each family. If you are serious about taking a German Shepherd puppy home, you may place a reservation deposit or do the "meet and greet" appointments!
We are happy to schedule an appointment with you. Why do we have such a strict visitation policy?
Immature immune systems. Until the German Shepherd puppies have all three sets of their vaccinations, (that's when they are 14 weeks old), they are not completely immune to diseases that can be brought in on shoes or clothing. Many breeders have lost entire litters of puppies due to diseases being brought into the breeder’s home. You don’t have to touch a puppy to transfer disease to them. Your shoes and clothing can bring it in and leave it on the floor or furniture, only to be transferred to the paws of the mama dog, who then transfers it to her puppies.
Most of our German Shepherd puppies are reserved by purchasing families. Would you want to have a puppy reserved and know, that a lot of other families were being allowed to come and hold or play with litter mates, and put them all at risk?
We’d like to raise and socialize our puppies in such a way, that their risk of disease and/or injury is as low as possible so that we can deliver healthy puppies to the families who are waiting for them. Schedules and Personal Safety We have a normal life that includes jobs/business home and property needs, Horses, Grandchildren, Friends, church, and other responsibilities in addition to caring for our puppies and dogs.
Our daily lives are very busy and accommodating the many requests we receive from the public to come by and visit just isn’t possible. This is why visiting is reserved only for those, who have deposits on a particular litter or are truly interested in purchasing a German shepherd puppy on the same day or are willing to leave a deposit for a future coming litter.
We also understand that some families are not familiar with the German Shepherd breed and have to meet them first, before purchasing a puppy from Southernwind German Shepherds, or have to meet a few of our puppies to see which one is the right German Shepherd puppy for them.
We enjoy meeting the families who have reserved a puppy, once the puppies are old enough to safely be visited. BUT it’s a totally different situation to receive an email or phone call from a random stranger who is passing through asking to come by and see our dogs and puppies.
Not only is this a risk to personal safety, but it would also compromise our home environment, which we appreciate and love and want to protect.
Our Dogs are our Lifestyle and we have to control the safe environment, which is also our Home. Thank you for your understanding!

What some of our "Meet and Greet" Puppy Clients have to say!
Comments and Highlights of the Visit.
We were highly impressed with the Farm, the way the dogs are kept, nothing locked up in Crates, the area extremely clean, all the dogs looked beautiful and healthy, I was most impressed with the Temperaments, each dog Cecilia took out of the fenced in areas were simply super sweet and wanted to play with us!
But aside from this I have to say that the knowledge and the passion which Cecilia gives when she elaborates on her breeding program, is remarkable. Definitely worth more than what we paid for all that we learned in those 45 minutes!
We really enjoyed our "meet and Greet" visit, definitely you get much more than what you pay for! Cecilia's incredible knowledge and how she shared it with us, was really impressive, she has a way of explaining with such a passion that you can tell she really lives for what she does!
Dogs were incredible, and the Areas well kept, we thought we had seen beautiful German Shepherds before, but truly nothing like what she has in her place.
The Meet and Greet was time and money well spent, we learned so much from Mrs Martinez in the hour we spent on her farm, and now we are certain we are going to go with her for our purchase of our new puppy.
