Search Tips

Some dogs with von, von der, vom, etc in the name have been abbreviated to just the letter "v". Searching on Fraulein von Grandix may show no results - instead try Fraulein v Grandix. We are slowly adding this info, but we recommend searching on just part of the name until we can get all the names updated..

Better results would be to search on just part of the name, such as Grandix. This will bring up all dogs with Grandix in their name.

Avoid the use of apostrophe letters. Searching on Knight's Trooper II may show no results - insead try Trooper II.

You can also search on color, registration number and by breeder's name (not all dogs have breeder info). Again, partial search terms work better with more results.

(In an effort to keep the old bloodlines from being lost, this database was started back in 1996 with an emphasis on dogs from the early 1800's thru the 1960's. Some of the 80 & 90's have been entered. You won't find recent dogs, but you may find great-grandparents. It's always a work in progress!)

The German Shepherd Dog Database Project makes no guarantees as to the accuracy of the data published at this site. We have made every effort to verify all entries, but the German Shepherd Dog Database Project is not a registry so all data included has been submitted by dog owners or taken from registry reports and AKC Stud Books. Please contact us to report any errors or omission.
