Home of Kistha Haus German Shepherds and Pembroke Welsh Corgi’s. We are a small kennel, located in the beautiful Lake County in Northern California.
We breed quality DDR German Shepherds. Our adults are from DDR German Pedigree dogs only, no American lines. Our puppies are raised in a home environment and are socialized from day one. They are raised around cats and other dogs and are able to explore and grow to be well socialized family members. Our puppies are suitable for schutzhund, personal protection, search and rescue, police work, and also make great family companions.
Our Shepherds have full DDR pedigrees. They come from hip certified and schutzhund titled parents. Our Shepherds are ALL hip and elbow certified either “good” or “excellent”, DM tested Clear (Degenerative Myelopathy) and CERF clear before being bred. They are not kennel dogs, they are a part of the family! They are are very socialized with other dogs and cats and kids.
We also breed Pembroke Welsh Corgi’s. We have red and white’s and tri colored dogs. Our breeding dogs are screened thru OFA for Hip dysplasia, DM (Degenerative Myelopathy) and CERF. Our Corgi’s make great family companions and are raised in our home, and are well socialized with children. Our Male Winston is one of only 8% of all DM tested Corgis, to test Clear. So we now are striving to wipe DM out of our Corgi’s with a male that can only produce Clear or Carrier, no matter what he is bred to. This means he will not produce puppies that will later develop this crippling disease. DM is Degenerative Myelopathy.
Hello Kim, A few days ago I saw you advertising in the pedigree database website and finally I found the way to your home page. Me, I’m also 100% DDR, but I’m human. I was born in East Germany and still I live here, near the Czech border. When I was a young boy I started with GSD breeding together with my parents. We had really good times in the 70′s by doing dog sports and dog breeding. Now, about 30 years after, I’m on the way to come back again to my old and wonderfull hobby. A good friend of mine here in my home town tried permanentely to bring me back into matters of GSD sports. He is the one, being the first owner of Dino and Duke vom Schäferliesel. I know these dogs very well. Now the two males belong to the “Haus Iris” kennel in Apolda not so far from here. When I opened your web site, there was a great welcome by Rookie’s view out of the car. What a nice picture – congratulation. But as well I was shocked a little, cause I looked into the dark brown face of Rookie and I saw Duke, the uncle of Rookie. These two dogs are looking so similar – amazing. Just the eyes of Duke are a little darker. You can be proudy to have got such a nice GSD male with pure DDR pedigree background. Hope, you will continue in these matters and you will have a lot of good times with the German Shepherds from a really rare and outstanding source, that still exist. All the best for you, your family and your dogs, Lutz from Germany
