German Shepherds were born to work, and love tackling whatever challenge you toss their way—even if it’s just a chew toy.
Although German Shepherds might look scary, they’re extremely friendly and cuddly with their owners.
German Shepherds are herding dogs at heart, and these dogs love to run, fetch, exercise and play!
German Shepherds are highly intelligent and easy to train—there’s a reason the breed is famous as rescue, police and seeing-eye dogs.
Fun for the Whole Family
German Shepherds are make great family dogs, and are extremely tender and loving to children, especially.

Still have questions about German Shepherds? Looking for a “German Shepherd breeder near me?” We have answers.
German Shepherd puppies will vary in price from breeder to breeder based on experience, pedigree, and other factors. For example, white German Shepherd puppies for sale, black German Shepherd puppies for sale, long haired German Shepherd puppies for sale and Sable German Shepherd puppies for sale may affect pricing. Our MatchMaker process ensures you’ll be connected with breeders and puppies who suit you perfectly—including budget.
When you work with one of the breeders in our network, you’ll have the option of picking your German Shepherd puppy up in person or having your pooch shipped to the nearest major airport (within the lower 48 states). Don’t worry—dogs fly in the cabin, not stowed away with the luggage!
We receive applications daily from companies and breeders who desire to join our network, but we admit fewer than 10%. Uptown strictly vets prospective breeders based on skill, animal care, health, legal requirements and much more—head on over to our Breeder Pledge for all of the details.
We take it for granted that the puppy we buy from the average breeder will be healthy and raised with love, but the fact is that many breeders see their dogs as stacks of cash, not animals. Our mission is simple—screen and unite the best breeders in the country, and make it a breeze to connect these breeders with loving families just like yours.
Puppy mills are where countless sick, ill-tempered German Shepherd puppies come from. Mills are wretched places where dogs are treated like machines, forced to produce puppy litters without rest, and kept in squalid conditions that would make your stomach turn. Mill dogs cost their owners an average of $5k in added vet bills, and have a much lower life expectancy.
There sure are. If you’re ready to meet the perfect German Shepherd puppy, begin our MatchMaker process right now and tell us all about your ideal pooch. We’ll comb the Uptown breeder network for the best matches, help you connect, and get you on your way to bringing home the dog you’ve always dreamed of.
MatchMaker helps us figure out exactly the type of dog you’re looking for based on breed, home size, temperament and more. We don’t just help you find a puppy—we help you find the best puppy for you and your family, saving you tons of time and headaches down the road. MatchMaker is the key to living a fulfilling life with your new puppy.
Good breeders deserve a chance to shine, and so too do good families. We believe in building lasting relationships between you and your puppy, and we also believe in building a lasting relationship between us and your family. Take a peek at our reviews and you’ll discover that we’re in the business of creating families.
