What does StaFra mean?
StaFra is a combination of our names -Stacy & Frank. Although most of the training, handling, grooming and all is done myself, my husband Frank is there to help and support me. We both love this breed and are having a lot of fun with our German Shepherds. We look forward to placing our puppies into homes that will enjoy so many adventures with them too!
How did you get into breeding?
I was raised with parents who trained and bred their hunting dogs. – Chesapeake Bay Retriever. I loved being with our dogs and being able to be a part of an ethical program. I continued with the same strict rules and testing my parents did in raising, training, showing and breeding my own dogs after I was an adult. Over 30 years in dogs, I still breed with a intentional purpose.
What makes your breeding program special?
I searched long and hard for the lines I wanted in my dogs and in future generations. I chose my foundation dogs for health, longevity, soundness in body, temperament, type and willingness to work as they are bred for. I do not breed any of my dogs until all tests with Embark breeders panel, hips and elbows are x-rayed and graded by SV in Germany or OFA. We are actively training & titling.
What is included with a puppy?
All puppies will be vaccinated and dewormed, have complete puppy wellness checks along with health certificates, Embark DNA testing, microchipped before leaving.
