About New Litter



4 years




My name is Rick Slavens and I own Noble Companions. We are a specialty breeder of World Class German Shepherd Working Bloodlines. We usually breed one litter per year. Our pups are hand raised and know how to behave around family, kids & furniture along with the strong drives, temperament and nerves needed for first class working dogs. We are located about 60 miles west of Colorado Springs.

We believe the German Shepherd Dog is the Most Loyal Companion and Greatest Protector a family can have. Our bloodlines are from the Czech Border Patrol Breeding Programs which, I and many others believe, have the most untainted breeding bloodlines in the world today.

Breeder Mistake - This litter was supposed to between Sagan Honajzer and Zeva von der Gauss BUT even though Zeva was bred to Sagan, my new male Quasar z Jirkova dvora also mistakenly bred with Zeva. What does this mean? We cannot register this litter with AKC. It also means I cannot ask for my normal price. The price for this female is $1250.00.

As of 08/22/16 we have (1) black female available. Reservations require a $500 deposit which applies to the purchase price.

Common Questions
When will the pups be available?
Mid September 2016.

What type of training will they undergo?
House training, Kennel training, vehicle training, some leash work and basic commands
Family manners, socialization with other dogs & cats.

How much do they cost?

What colors does your breeding program produce?
Our most prevalent color is sable, ranging from a light honey brown, to a deep & dark sable, with a few silvers thrown in. We also produce solid blacks. Sometimes we will see a 50/50 ratio of sables & blacks, but most of the time we see an 80/20 ratio, sables to blacks.

What are the average sizes and weight of your full grown dogs?
Sagan is at the large end of the specs - 95 lbs
Zeva is on the smaller end of the scale, weighing in at 65 lbs.
Most of her pups (3 litters now) are on the larger size. The females should be 75-85lbs full grown and the male will be 85-100lbs. They are NOT oversize shepherds but true to the ideal working shepherd.

Has your breeding program had any difficulty with Health issues (hips, eyes, bloat etc.)
We have not experienced any issues except for Pannus (an immune mediated corneal disease) in one set of grandparents. It is believed to be caused by UV light, which we have in abundance in Colorado due to elevation and the snow's reflective properties. We are now using “Doggles” with our adult dogs.

Do you breed for working lines or show dogs?
Working lines only

Do you ship?
Yes, we have used Delta airlines many times. Young puppies (9-12wks) can usually be shipped in the continental US for around $450.00

One last question... Would it be possible to send some current pictures of your available dogs/pups?
Sure. But look at our Facebook page. We post pictures of all our litters and many of the new owners post pictures of their dogs as they grow. You will also find many of them MORE THAN willing to talk to you about their dog!

Feel free to give me a call for a list of references or just to talk puppies.
