German Shepherds in Oregon

Located in Eagle Creek, Oregon, just a stone’s throw from Portland, Zimmerhoff German Shepherds is dedicated to preserving the authentic working qualities of the German Shepherd Dog.
Our journey with dogs began over 30 years ago, beginning with raising Shetland Sheepdogs with our children. However, when it came time to get a protection dog, our first German Shepherd, Hans, stole our hearts and ignited our passion for the breed. From there, our commitment to maintaining the breed’s working heritage only deepened.

We prioritize selecting dogs with a strong work drive, stable temperament, and robust health. Our breeding program focuses on traditional Czech/Slovak and German working lines, renowned for producing dependable, hardworking companions. 

In addition to temperament and health, we emphasize structural integrity, adhering to the SV standard in Germany. Our dogs undergo thorough health screenings for DM, hip, and elbow dysplasia prior to breeding to ensure the well-being of future generations. 

Our dogs enjoy comfortable living conditions in our indoor/outdoor kennel, with daily exercise and socialization with family members to nurture their physical and mental well-being. They’re not just pets; they’re cherished members of our family, joining our children and grandchildren on outings to parks and hiking trails. 

With the right family who is willing to give their German Shepherd puppy plenty of exercise, affection, and training, a relationship will build that will bring years of love and companionship. 

If you have any questions about our German Shepherd puppies, or any questions about dogs in general, please contact us. We are proud breeders of beautiful, healthy German Shepherd puppies for working purposes. At Zimmerhoff German Shepherds, we’re committed to producing exceptional dogs that embody the breed’s timeless qualities while enriching the lives of their future families.
