Hi Sheila and Lew, this is Jeff and Sheila. We purchased a puppy from you in June. From
a litter from Turli. We named her Mya and she is a little over 8 months old now. We just wanted to update you and let you know how happy we are with her. She has been such a great addition to our family. Her personality has not changed much since the first day we visited. She is independent, smart, curious and loving on her own terms. Lol. She is very loyal and a great protector to us and the kids. She loves to learn and go for car rides. We just wanted to thank you again for giving us he chance to adopt her. We are beyond happy with her. Wish you all a happy New Year. I have included some pics so you can see her growth.

Thank You,

Jeff and Sheila W.

Hiery is growing so quickly.  Getting along well with Maggie and cats.  Fits right in.  Walks on a leash well and knows his basic commands.  Plus he is sooo adorable and fun to watch.  Very happy and outgoing puppy.  We love him bunches.  Thanks again for letting us be his family!

Update:  3/2017

Hiery is 6 months now.  He’s the head of his class at obedience, gets our paper every morning and knows how to “find” along with 20 other commands, swim, retrieve his ball and play play play!  He is soooo smart.  We will be putting him in an agility class in a few months and are looking into a herding class also.  Hiery is a sweet beautiful boy.  He is complimented by everyone!  People constantly stop us and ask where we got him.  He is our joy!


Hi Lew and Sheila,

Happy Holidays to you both.  I’ve been meaning to send you a picture of Mabel and since we took some recently for the holidays, I thought I’d pass one along.  Mabel is about as spoiled and sweet as a puppy could possibly be.  Richard takes her to the dog park each morning where she plays and plays and then comes home and passes out for many hours.  Then, she eats one of her two cooked meals a day Richard makes for her as she spends time going in and out of the pool (seriously, it’s easily 10 times a day that dog goes swimming).  She’s a massive squirrel chaser (as I’m sure you figured she would be), but she pretty much chases everything except one of our cats as they are good friends.  All in all, she’s great and is one of the family.  She is also a great protector of her family and she guards us when anyone new comes in the house.  She’s so incredibly cute as she’s the easiest dog to get her leg kicking when you pet her belly.  She also plays us as she knows if she whimpers, even a little, she gets whatever she wants- we are such suckers.  We also get told by everyone when we walk her that she’s beautiful and she is- as you can see.


Again Happy Holidays,

Karen, Richard, Alexandra and Mabel








We could not be happier with Brandy.  She is beautiful, intelligent and well behaved.  Everyone who meets her comments on just how beautiful she is. She really likes people, especially kids.

Hey Lew and Sheila! Wanted to give you an update on Jaeger (Nokia and Turli). He’s doing phenomenal! He gets along great with Nyla (our Australian Shepherd) and we could not have asked for a more perfect addition to our family. At sixteen weeks, he weighs 45 pounds. He loves going to the barn and riding in the four wheeler while we feed the horses, and he also loves his blanket. He’ll go into his open crate, grab a blanket, pull it out to a pillow, and lay on it. He also loves tennis balls. With one in his mouth, he kicks the other one around with his paws like a soccer ball. We take him back on a trail in the woods, and have tried to take him everywhere we go. He also gets trained at Pawfection dog training every Saturday. We love him and his personality so much. Thanks Lew and Sheila!

Hello Lew and Sheila,
I hope this email finds you all well. Charlie and I are doing great! I am having the time of my life with my boy. I love my Charlie so, so much. He’s so incredibly smart and beautiful. Everywhere we go I get loads of compliments on how gorgeous Charlie is.
Thank you again so much for breeding such wonderful animals. My dog trainer is so impressed with Charlie and as it turns, out we train together with Charlie’s sister Beretta.

Panzer has been a hit with our family, neighbors, even the mail man.  We took him to the vet the day after picking him up at shepherd haus .  The vet told us he hadn’t seen such a beautiful German Shepherd puppy in a long time, and added he is perfectly healthy and adorable but we already knew that!   Panzer is meeting all the neighborhood dogs. He socializes well and the dogs seem to like him.   Everyone loves Panzer!   We are so thankful we found  Shepherd haus  and will be happy to speak with anyone that is asking for a reference.
Thank you Lew & Sheila

Lew and Sheila,Mia is doing so well! She is growing so fast! She is already enrolled in puppy kindergarten and is the “star” of her class. She is the youngest puppy in her class but she is constantly impressing the trainers with how quickly she learns. With only 3 classes to go, she is well on her way to becoming an AKC S.T.A.R puppy. She is so smart and is so eager to learn. My sister and I wanted to thank you again for letting Mia become a part of our family. I have attached some pictures and will continue to keep you updated on her progress!

Hello Lew and Sheila,
Zulu did great at her puppy class and graduated this past Saturday =)  The instructor just loves her and kept using her as an example for the rest of the class.  I didn’t think she was ready to be tested in CGC but he thinks she is.  She is a teachers pet lol.  She is continuing with her SAR and has moved on from simple air scenting to human remains.  Her trainer introduced her to the scent just once not thinking she would pick up on it so quick.  He then went and hid in the brush as she was suppose to seek and find him.  Zulu was sent on her mission and went twice to this tree.  My husband was confused as she has been very good at finding the trainer but insisted on taking him to a tree instead.  The trainer said that is were he hid the box with the HR scent and was so impressed that Zulu found it as fast as she did.  As if thats not enough to be so very proud of her, after her graduation on Saturday her trainer introduced her to bite class.  She again did exceptionally well with that too.  We have decided to train her for protection as well because she is showing all the right traits.  She is confident, very smart, and most importantly very friendly with other dogs. Zulu will continue with search and rescue and protection training and I am going to continue with agility as well.  She is such an amazing pup.  I hope you like the pics =)

Hey Lew and Sheila,

Just wanted to send you a few pics and let you know how Paisley was doing!
She’s an absolute doll! She cuddles and always wants me to play with her. It’s cute when I’m sitting on the couch doing homework and she’s playing with her toys, then comes over to me and whines until I play back. She also sleeps under my feet or on the couch next to me while I’m doing my school work. We go outside and throw the ball around each day. If she’s not distracted by all the mulch outside, she normally fetches it and brings it back.
She LOVES other dogs. We go to PetSmart classes and she whines when we leave the other puppies to go home. She’s also really good at self entertaining except she takes ALL the toys out of the toy box and places them all over the house so I get to clean them up everyday. :)
Overall she’s great. She does awesome in the crate and she knows a lot so far like sit, down, gentle, ball, ducky (this toy she loves), and we are working on “wait” and “leave it” this week. Oh and she LOVES food time. Even just an hour after lunch, she’s sitting at the closet door!
Anyways, she’s doing well and I love her to death! She’s already so loyal and such a great addition to my life! I absolutely love spoiling her and taking care of her!

Paisley Update – Sept. 2014

Hey Lew and Sheila!
Paisley is 6 months already! Time has flown by so fast. She’s doing so well. She’s got a lot of ‘protective dog’ in her yet hasn’t hurt a fly yet! Haha… She makes me feel very safe though when we go out for walks. Now that she’s gotten all her shots, we’ve been going to this amazing dog park here in Gainesville multiple times week. She loves it. It’s like disney world for dogs and the membership was so worth it for her to have so much fun. She still follows me everywhere I go in the house and is always under my feet. She’s also becoming more and more of a night-time cuddler. She’s getting so big too! She’s already almost the same size as my friends’ Shepherd that’s 15 months old. Paisley’s paws are also bigger so I’m hoping she gets pretty huge. Today she turned 6 months old and weighs 54.5 pounds!! Anyways, here a few pictures from the last few months! Thanks again for such an amazing puppy! I couldn’t be happier!!
Paisley Update – 4/30/17
Hi guys!Three years ago today, I took home a beautiful puppy! All I knew that day was that she was cute, female, and that her name would be Paisley!
But over three years I’ve grown to love her so much and realize how sweet, protective, well-behaved, and fun-loving she is!I’m not sure if y’all still breed dogs for sale, but I hope others have been as blessed with amazing animals from you guys! Thanks again for giving me my best friend and greatest fur baby!

Hi Guys,

Just a quick photo of Luke about to go for a drive and out to dinner. He’s been to 3 restaurants so far, hung out at Best Buy and made the rounds at family and friends.  He gets a warm reception everywhere he goes.  He’s doing great!

Hi Lew and Sheila, just wanted to show you a picture of Tank with his ears up. He is doing great. Dave already has him listening to commands (without treats). He is getting into everything, haha! Poor Dave is exhausted, but we couldn’t imagine life without him and it has only been a week. Thank you.
We will keep you updated as he grows.

Just wanted to let you know Anka is doing great! She is so beautiful and so smart. We couldn’t be happier. She gets along with the cats fine. Only one wants anything to do with her at this point. Training is going well. She follows simple commands and look forward to more formal training when she is 16 weeks. Thanks again for this precious girl!

Anka Update – Sept. 2014

Happy birthday to Anka!! I cant believe she is 1! She is awesome! We couldnt be happier!

Anka bday



Our puppy, Izzy, is just perfect!  She is adorable and loving, remembering us when we came to pick her up–she literally jumped into Jon’s arms as if to say “AHH!! you came back for me!”  She was super easy to potty train..only took about 2 weeks once we got her home.  She is fearless and knows exactly what she wants and goes for it..she’s giving our older pup a run for her money!  It’s easy to see that she is a product of her awesome breeding..she has incredible drive and a very quick learner.  Izzy is the best puppy we could have asked for and we recommend Lew and Sheila to everyone!!

Thanks for everything!
Cara and Jon – Sarasota, FL


Lew and Sheila,
Maya is doing awesome!! She has already learned basic commands both verbally and visually, she’s sooo smart, and don’t even get me started on how gorgeous she is. Everyone who see’s her is in absolute awe of her, and well who could blame them. We  just absolutely adore her and can’t imagine our life without her and we have you to thank for such a great pup. When we decide to add another fur kid to our family, we now know the best and only shepherd breeder to contact.
Thank you for everything,
Shannon and Chris










Hello Sheila and Lew!  Nala and I are doing great. She is bonding with me and my sisters puppy and making every day a joy.  She is so smart, playful and obedient. Well, most of the time, lol.  I couldn’t have dreamed if a more amazing puppy to share my life with.  You both impressed me with your professionalism, your true love for the breed and the amazing breeding quality of your dogs. Everyone from her vet to the groomers at Petsmart don’t want to give her back, she is always the star!  Thank you again so much for such a wonderful, gorgeous and well rounded puppy.

Hi Sheila  and Lew,

We are in love! Turbo (full name “Turbo Von Jager Bomb!)” is an absolute doll. Within three days she was sleeping through  the night in her crate  and was completely potty trained within 2 weeks.!  She has already learned to come, sit, shake and lay down on command and recently mastered roll over!

We take her everywhere with us. She has been to school with the boys, the beach and she helped pick out the Christmas tree (and take it down!) She particularly loves going boating with family and friends.

Thank you so much for the attention you gave to her the first 8 weeks of her life. This is our first dog and we are over the moon.

Lew & Sheila,

“We are so very pleased with our sweet puppy.  He is getting bigger and more beautiful every day! Everywhere we take him people say how gorgeous he is and what a great personality he has. He charms everyone he meets!  Our dog trainer says he is so very smart. As a first time Shepherd owner I think I am hooked on the breed!”

Hi Sheila,
Kaiser and I are doing great. He is such a sweetheart. I’m looking forward to him being out of his teething stage, that boy can bite,LOL! He loves to play. He is catching tennis balls now and bringging them back to me. He comes when called, in the house, still working on outside off leash, he comes sometimes but is easiley distracted by birds,plains,deer running through the water behind the house outside of the fenced yard. He sits and is getting very good at doing his #1 & #2 outside, has no problem being in a cage while I’m not at home. He does keep me VERY busy. He is just plain AWESOME.
I plan on having Kaiser trained for home and personal protection when he is old enough. I think he is going to be an Awesome dog, He is Awesome to me now. I’m just really looking forward to whatching him grow and learn.


 Thank You Very Much


It was a pleasure meeting you and your husband Lew.

  Hi, Sheila and Lew.  Just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to purchase          Rider,(a/k/a) Dozer!.  He had his second vet appointment yesterday and he is a thriving 26 pounds and full of energy.  He wants to play constantly and is just a joy, especially after losing our last dog. He is about 90/10 housebroken and literally sits behind the door and barks to tell us he needs to go out.  He energy is never ending, which is what we really needed.  Again, thank you so much.  He is a joy! Sorry to   take your little buddy away from Lew!!

German Shepherd Puppies Florida MaxWow! This is Max…

My wife and I could not have made a better decision on a pet. He is exactly what we have anticipated: Intelligent, friendly, healthy and “full of energy”. We purchased him 8 weeks ago and have had him a month. He is full throttle 100% pure Shepherd with all the attributes: Strong, learns quickly and already has great instincts. We look forward to training this dog to be all he can be. We would highly recommend this breeder if you are looking for a good quality shepherd. The Carneys are nice, knowledgeable and their home is in the perfect location for raising a puppy. In our book Max and his breeder get FIVE STARS *****!

Thank you for bringing Max into our family.

Thank you Lew and Sheila for a wonderful dog Barrett!! I love his pic on your home page, looks great! Barrett was in the absolute best condition when I got him from you, I was so pleased!! You truly take wonderful care of your dogs!! : )

Thank you again.

Hi Sheila and Lew.  We named our girl Nim.Nim - German Shepherd Puppies Florida
She is great and doing well.  I’ve already contacted someone living near us about training.  I knew pretty soon she had great drive and a desire to learn.  I just don’t know enough so he will be teaching both of us.

I am attaching a pic of her and will be able to send more once we settle.  She is a beautiful dog that gets commented on when I bring her for walks.

Thanks so much for a great dog.
