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 two litters 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.
This litter between Quasar z Jirkova dvora and Zeva von der Gauss is expected to be whelped around December 23, 2016.
The pedigree for this mating: [please contact me for website address]
We have published a Puppy Portfolio, which describes the history of the GSD, the Czech Border Patrol Breeding Program, and includes a six generation pedigree. The link to the Puppy Portfolio is: [please contact me for website address] (We will be uploading an updated document with Quasar’s pedigree very soon.)

Our Most Common Questions:
When will these pups be available for placement? Late February 2017.
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? $2000.00 if purchased after February. If a reservation/deposit is placed before February, the purchase price is $1800.00 Reservations require a $500 deposit which applies to the purchase price.
What colors does your breeding program produce? Our most prevalent color has been sable, ranging from a light honey brown, to a deep & dark sable, with a few silvers thrown in. That said, we believe the majority of this litter will be blacks with possibly a couple of sables.
What are the average sizes and weight of your full grown dogs? Quasar is a large dog , weighing about 90lbs. 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 70-85lbs full grown and the male will be 80-95lbs
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) but we have not seen any evidence with this pair. It is believed to be caused by UV light, which we have in abundance in Colorado due to the elevation and 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!
