Texas' Ranger "Ranger" we purchased as a baby because he was a BIG beautiful black and red German Shepherd puppy.  It's hard to really find big pups, so we jumped on it when we found him.  He was a big sweetheart from champion lines - West German and American.  He has some VA and V titles in his German lineage with a few World Siegers, and champion Heidelburg in his American.  He is large boned, straight back, a very sweet gentle temperament.  He and Gabby produced some absolutely beautiful plushy black/red puppies. 

Ranger is living with a wonderful family in Dripping Springs and another GSD a little boy are his best buddies.  We loved him and wanted what was best for HIM.  He grew up with Panzer and Lady, and even though they were all close in age, they were too intense for his gentle sweet temperament.  We felt he would be happier in a normal home with less dogs. 

Gabby always loved him...   

TEXAS' RANGER

I very carefully pick and choose who we use as a stud dog.  I don't just use a dog because "He looks good"!  Yes we want attractive dogs, but their health, their temperament, their pedigree, and any offspring they may have already produced, etc. is all taken into account when choosing the right stud for our female.   


I do my best to choose dogs that will compliment who I am breeding them with, where they will both bring out the best in each other.

We purposely bred him with Halli to bring in a straighter back, bigger stronger bones and strength.  They had some beautiful pups - more long coats than plush or short.

KING DRAEGEN VON "HOSS"

Sarge, an East German working-line,  was the "perfect dog" that was taken from us way before his time.  Sargent was a very gentle, sweet loving boy, and extremely intelligent.  I've had people come up to me and tell me he reminded them of "RinTinTin".  He was one of the best dogs I have ever owned, and people came to us because he and Rosy produced some wonderful pups together. 

He was an excellent pet as well as the perfect guardian and companion. He had an excellent temperament and disposition. He was very sweet and mellow, but also extremely intelligent and always seemed to somehow just "know" when something or someone wasn't "quite right".  He was great with kids - he protected and watched over them. He even protected and watched over baby bunnies and baby birds that our other pets were trying to catch.  I could tell many stories about him as I am sure all of you could about your own dogs.

He is greatly missed...
