RiverRock German Shepherds

2020 RIVERROCK PUPPIES

RiverRock German Shepherds is a preservation hobby kennel in St. Cloud, MN dedicated to breeding outstanding show, performance, and companion dogs.  Breeder, Dr. Zoa Rockenstein, is an AKC Breeder of Merit and Signatory of the German Shepherd Dog Club of American Breeders’ Code of Ethics.  She is the co-breeder/co-owner of BPISS Ch.

RiverRock German Shepherds are extraordinary companion dogs who display the breed’s versatility in conformation, herding, rally, tracking, scent work, agility, obedience, and other events. Our breeding program is based on our core values:  Soundness, Performance, Beauty, and Style (in that order).  Our dogs are protective, not aggressive.  They are motivated to perform, but not to be endlessly demanding.

Show, performance, and companion puppies will be available at the end of January 2019 and in the spring and summer of 2020.  The puppy contract includes a health guarantee.  All breeding stock are OFA certified free of hip and elbow dysplasia and are screened for DM.

Applications, and deposits from approved buyers, are being accepted now.  See the Puppies page on our website for the puppy application and for pictures of the sires and dams, along with litter pedigrees of planned litters.  Please submit the application as directed on the website, before contacting me about puppy availability.  Co-breeder Kathleen Barrow and I have both solid black and black and tan puppies currently available sired by Ch. RiverRock’s Whistle Down the Wind TC CGC RN TKN (Angus) out of Ch. Karizma’s Black Gold (Dallas) to be homed around January 27th.  

 Exciting breedings for 2020 are listed on the website.  Strong preference will be given to show and/or performance homes.  We are happy to mentor seriously committed beginners, juniors, and owner-handlers.  RiverRock puppies are not available as “pets only”.  There is an expectation of involvement in at least one AKC sport (including, but not limited to, conformation, scent work, obedience, herding, therapy work, agility, and rally) to the first titling level out of respect for the breed as a working dog.  A RiverRock puppy is more than a pet:  it is an adventure!
