At Pine Hill emphasis is placed on the development, promotion and enjoyment of a dog, sound of mind and body that is a pleasure to live with. I am a proud signer and past National Chairperson of the German Shepherd Dog Club of America’s Breeder’s Code Of Ethics and an AKC Breeder of Merit. Breeding only 1-2 litters a year Pine Hill has produced multi AKC Best in Show, performance winners, certified FEMA search and rescue dogs, therapy, seizure alert and motility assistance dogs. All are well loved family companions. Litters are home-raised with an emphasis on early socialization to produce confident and outgoing puppies. Pedigrees are carefully and laboriously scrutinized and (verifiable!) health checks for parents are completed before a litter is contemplated. Health checks include hips/elbows/cardiac and Degenerative Myelopathy screening. One of every breeding pair will be clear for DM so as not to produce any at risk puppies. Dogs are bred to the GSD standard to be correct in size with lovely substantial bone and rich pigment. Pine Hill puppies are always vet checked with written health certification at 6+ weeks and receive age appropriate vaccines and parasite prevention, proof of the same provided with health records for new owners and their veterinarians.
