Our Story

Legacy German Shepherds is located in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.

Our dogs are working line Shepherds with low to medium drives and make excellent family dogs, working ranch dogs, and have the ability to excel in obedience and scent work.

All of our puppies come with a 12 month health guarantee, first rounds of vaccinations and deworming, certificate of health from a registered veterinarian, and a lifetime of breeder support.  

We breed for health, temperament, and sound minds.  Our dogs are athletic, kind, eager to please, lovers of people, and confident.

We stand behind our breeding program and the ability and worth of our dogs. We pour countless time and energy into our dogs, and strive to place our puppies in homes that will do the same.

All puppies are sold with AKC limited registration and a spay/neuter contract, except for in special circumstances as determined by prior consultation.

Please contact us for more information or to get on the list for a puppy.

"Just thought I’d share, Miley was approved for her novice trick dog title!  She is sooo smart. I’m planning to keep working with her and trying to keep getting the higher titles."  - Caitlyn, California (Spring 2018 Kaiser X Elsie)

"Mallory is just the sweetest dog I’ve ever had. I absolutely adore her! I take her group classes every Sat morning when I’m off & she continues to do so well. She’s perfect.❤️" ~ Amber, Wyoming



"Ava is growing like a weed; almost 20 pounds already! She's crazy smart and already knows sit, down, wait, and is kennel trained.  She's so happy to be calm and chill if I need to talk to someone or handle something in the kitchen.  She will just hang out and not need constant attention.  And for an 11 week old puppy, that's amazing.  Y'all really make amazing puppies."

- Sarah C., TX (Elsie X Kaiser 2020)
