Specializing in Oversized German Shepherds

Since we do not ship, we will be doing some personal deliveries or meeting half way whichever works out for everyone wanting a puppy from us. There will be a charge of about the same as what the airlines will charge but you will have a more "personal" delivery where your puppy is more comfortable with people who they know making the trip.
There will be several  breedings this fall before 2020 but each and everyone will be well taken care of whether the puppies are born here or at their foster parents. We had a few unfortunate misses earlier in the year so we are working hard at getting  puppies to those people and also eager to meet new future puppy owners. All of these litters are DM clear and parents have been OFA'd before entering into our breeding program.
Ruby and Raider
This litter will only be standard or short coat puppies since Raider does not carry the long coat gene. Diesel is a example of what Raider produces for us. Due around Oct 29th. Ruby will be having her babies born here instead of her foster home. Pups then will be ready sometime around Christmas eve but will not be going until after Jan 1st because of the stress during the holidays. Please email or call with any question about this litter.

Stella and Hank
Stella had a false pregnancy. She had all the symptoms just no pups as sometimes happens. We will try this same breeding again the next time she comes into heat using the same stud dog (Hank).
Cayanne and Rookie
Cayanne and Rookie have been bred and are expecting around November 8th. This will be a ALL long coat litter. These babies will then be ready after the holidays anytime after Jan. 2nd. This litter will be raised with her foster parents who have done a WONDERFUL job in the past with her babies. Can't say enough about them on how they are so dedicated with the fur babies. Please call or email for more information on this litter.

Schnook and Rango have been bred and are expecting around November 6th. These babies will be born here since Schnook lives with me. Can't wait to see what she will give us with Rango... Her puppies will be ready right after the holidays along with some of the other girls babies. I am very excited about this litter since Schnook is a daughter of our wonderful girl Sara. I will be keeping a female from this litter for my future breeding program. Please call or email for more information on this litter.

Windy Acres Shepherds

Windy Acres Shepherds is located in the beautiful area surrounding Cresco, Iowa in the northeast of the state. This is south of Rochester, MN, southwest of LaCrosse, WI, and northeast of Des Moines. We are very proud to live here and raise such wonderful dogs as the German Shepherd.

We are breeding our shepherds to bring back what I call the "Old Time German Shepherd" that are loyal, trusting, and to be the wonderful family member I remember growing up. Producing pups that are smart, straight backed with large heads, big bone with protective but not aggressive temperaments. Our pups are healthy, outgoing and are handled every day from birth on. Raised with family in mind. We have standard, plush and long coats that are black/red, black/tans and occasionally solid blacks. They leave here with a written guarantee of health, hips and elbows.

To contact us, don't hesitate to email us at

We have plenty of pictures to send and also testimonies of what their new owners say about them. A deposit of $300 will lock you in on the litter of your choice and are always transferable to a different litter but not refundable unless I cannot get you a puppy within one year.
