Welcome to the German Shepherd Database Project!


The German Shepherd Database Project is a pedigree database with currently over 400,000 entries, and growing daily. It is the largest database of American bred German shepherd dogs of all eras, from the 1800s to the present, tracing going back to the German foundation dogs. The pedigrees of American bred dogs include imported dogs up to the most recent.

The database shows up to six generations on one screen, it has the ability to see dogs appearing multiple times in a pedigree, there are markers for color to trace breeding, and a multitude of search functions, including by registration number and breeder.

UPDATE! Due to the amount of data & information, we are now requiring users to log in. Create a free account here.
