Q: Do you have large German Shepherds? Are you large German Shepherd breeders? What are large German Shepherds?


Yes! While we focus on health and temperament FIRST, our dogs also tend to be large German Shepherds. What this means is that, on average, our dogs or dogs produced out of ours tend to be considered larger in both height and weight than the typical German Shepherd. We actually have had people say to us that our dogs are some of the biggest German Shepherds they have ever seen, and do stress this to anyone who is inquiring about our dogs as sometimes people may NOT want a large German Shepherd but merely one within the standard.

From the American Kennel Club standard, German Shepherds can range from 22-24 inches at the shoulder for females, 24-26 inches at the shoulder for males.

The SV standard used in Germany is 55-60 cm for females at the shoulder, 60-65 cm at the shoulder for males. This is slightly smaller than the American Kennel Club standard, and would be equal to 21.6 - 23.6 inches for females, 23.6-25.6 inches for males.

On average, a dog at a healthy weight (NOT fat!) from us at full maturity ranges as follows:

Females: 80-100+ pounds at maturity, 25-28"+ at the shoulder

Males: 100-140+ pounds at maturity, 27-32+" at the shoulder

While not common, yes, we have produced over 140 pound German Shepherds. We also have a few 135, 140 and 150 pound German Shepherds in our lines. One of the largest ancestors was a 173 pound German Shepherd, however the averages for puppies produced by us are posted above and it's very rare for a dog to get that size.

Usually, a dog produced from us differs physically from the typical American or German show dog. Ours tend to be straighter-backed, with a blockier head, broader chest, and thick bone structure. Examples of the large heads on our German Shepherds are shown below. We focus on a blocky head with shorter muzzle than what may be more commonly seen within the American line dogs.

Of course, you can always have variations within a breeding, so an American or German line dog may produce some dogs that are undersize or oversize, but in general when they are focusing on breeding dogs within the standard size and look that is what they are going to produce.

Not only are our dogs considered large German Shepherds, but also large-boned German Shepherds, sometimes referred to big boned German Shepherds as well. While not necessarily synonymous with large size, we focus on old fashioned German Shepherds that are larger in structure and more information about this can be found on that old style German Shepherds page on our website.

Please note, they are not Shiloh Shepherds or King Shepherds, more information can be found on those linked pages.

We produce large German Shepherds in both long coats and traditional short coats, as well as many different colors including the traditional black/tan, sables, solid black German Shepherds as well as large white German Shepherds too. A few examples of the dogs we have produced over the years are shown below.
