TeMar German Shepherd Dogs
is located in the beautiful Willamette Valley of
Oregon. This is in the heart of Oregon Wine Country.
My love affair with the German Shepherd Dog started when I was a small child. My
parents raised me with a German Shepherd as my "Schutzengel" (German for Guardian
Angel) and companion. My husband and I were married in 1959; a few years later we
purchased our first German Shepherd. We began breeding and the raising of German
Shepherds, Its been a rewarding 46 years of wonderful dogs & children, our 6 children enjoyed being raised with our excellent German Shepherd dogs.
Now that our children are grown and with families of their own, they also have our German Shepherd Dogs.
We evolved to the European German Shepherd about 40 years ago. It is our personal opinion that the German shepherd bred to the FCI standard is the best. We’ve imported dogs from top producing breeders in Germany & Canada for our foundation breeding stock and have established a careful breeding program at our home in Canby Oregon, to carry on the tradition of breeding high quality dogs.
We do this for love of the German shepherd breed and for family enjoyment. We enjoy our successes and share them with those through the years who have helped.We hope to be able to leave the breed a little better than we found it.
And we know these wonderful dogs have made us just a bit happier by being part of our lives. This is truly a family affair. Our daughter-in-law, Sheila, is training their dog Panzer. Our granddaughter Brittany, now 27 started her career with the GSD at 13 years of age, has learned to be a handler in the conformation ring and is doing very well against stiff competition, She has handled both in the USA & Canada from club level to national events. Colby, our grandson, who is now 21, became involved with the GSD at 8 years of age and handling the German shepherd puppies for the show ring.
We know this family will enjoy the love and companionship of this fine breed for many years to come.
