SHAWSHACK DUTCH SHEPHERDS
We are located in Odessa, TX and are dedicated to producing quality, healthy, Dutch Shepherds that adhere to the FCI and AKC FSS breed standard. We only produce one litter a year and there is often already a waiting list started.
I met the Dutch Shepherd breed over 10 years ago when I had one owner surrendered to me from a family that could not handle the dog. I found her a home but she made an impact on me for sure! In 2015 I had another Dutch Shepherd surrendered to me and this time I kept him! Rowdy was the start of a love and passion for these amazing dogs. He has demonstrated obedience at several large events in Texas and was my go to dog in classes when I needed to give a good example. He was my partner for when I needed to check fences or get fuel after dark. He was the kind of dog that would do anything for his handler. I lost him at a little over 8 years old to kidney failure.
In 2016 I imported my first well bred purebred FCI registered Dutch Shepherd. She was a dream come true. I was so nervous and excited. I still get butterflies thinking about the day she arrived. She has shown in AKC conformation and has a Trick Dog Novice title. We also has a CGCA and has attended many dog frienly public events and traveled with our family. We played with barn hunt and started training but could not compete. She helps me keep the chickens in their yard and helps tend to the sheep on our hobby farm. She has an OFA hip score of good. Links to health testing will be provided below.
Dutch Shepherds are like potato chips and since I couldn't find a stud I wanted to use in the United States I returned to my mentor/breeder that my female came from. He had retained a male not related to my female from one of his litters in 2017 and offered to send him to me! In 2018 we welcomed a male to our program! We bought a house shortly after importing him so he has not done any sports other than conformation. He has a CGCA and TKN as well as 14 points towards a Certificate of Merit in the conformation ring. I plan to finish his CM at the AKC All Breed show in Midland, TX February 2023. He also has an OFA hip score of good. Links will be provided below.
In 2020 I had my first litter with these two (5 males / 5 females) and in 2021 we repeated the breeding (5 males / 4 females). Several of them already have points towards a CM and titles such as CGCA, CGCU, TKI, FDC, DCAT, CA, RA, DM, DSA, & RATO. A couple of them are training for scent work, barn hunt, herding, PSA, and agility. This is a very versatile group of puppies and I am very pleased with how they are turning out.
