Von Effinger Shepherds Welcomes You With Open Paws

Creating Families One Pup at a Time

German Shepherd breeder. We are a small family with an incredible love of this magnificent breed.

Just wanted to share my favorite picture of Madde

Nala is "sooo well behaved. She knows sit. The other day she brought a stick to chris and he was like, do you want me to throw this and threw it and she ran after it, brought it back and dropped it at his feet. 😂 she's a natural. We have guests over and she never jumps on them. Everyone always says she's the best puppy they've ever seen. My dad isn't a dog person and always tries to take her home. Says if he ever gets a dog again he will take Nala cause she's so perfect!"

Caesar is such a sweet and lovable dog. He goes everywhere, but church with us. He absolutely loves people and to go places. He is so smart he seems almost human at times. In fact, he tries his best to talk to you...lol! Though he just turned 7 months old, he has done quite a bit already. He participates in 5Ks with me. He has been to the Teacher Protests in Frankfort. He is a local celebrity and has made the front page of our paper. Caesar has gone to school a few times with me. He visits the local stores and is greeted by the cashiers with his favorite treats. He is served his “regular” meals at a couple of area restaurants. He is so well-mannered that he absolutely adored by all who come in contact with him!
