 Read More Letters From People That Have Gotten A Lenga Puppy

 

                                                       Lenga's Majestic Von Red Houdini

 

                   I have never written about my own dogs, even though I have been in this wonderful business for 52 years. But I have to tell you about my magnificent dog, Houdini.

 

About my wonderful Houdini.

I am so grateful and appreciative that Emily changed her mind,

about getting this particular red male puppy from me.

 Because he has the best temperament and personality.

 

I call him Houdini because of his extreme intelligence. He is as perfect as anyone would want in their Shepherd. Here are some pictures of Houdini growing up.

Today at only 16 months he weighs 90 pounds, and is one of the gentlest and calmest males I have ever had. The perfect temperament for a Therapy Dog.

 

Recently I took him inside a petting zoo for children. The manager was very hesitate about letting him inside,

but I told him that if he barked, I would give him $1,000.00.  I bet he thought………..”Easy Money?  O.K. he said.

Houdini was very alert, but never barked. He was absolutely perfect.

 

Houdini has become my therapy dog now. I take him everywhere with me, and he behaves perfectly. He still surprises me with his exceptional and excellent behavior. I test him out a lot in different situations, and he is perfect in each situation.

When he was a little puppy, I took him to the Mall, dog show, swap meet,

as well as all public places I could think of with many people, even ranches with

all kinds of animals, big and small. Also restaurants and  parades with other people, children and other dogs, and he has gone boating with me, too.

 

 Next I want to take him flying with me on a commercial flight.

Houdini is amazing. I can’t say enough good things about him.

Why should I be surprised? These are exactly the kind of puppies I sell.

You can never go wrong with a Lenga puppy.


Houdini is a show dog, a therapy dog, a protector, a babysitter, stud dog, and I would not sell him for a million dollars !

Best Always,

Helene Kohen

Breeder and owner of Houdini

                Lenga's Rocky Del Von Hero - Red male puppy by Cookie - Gentle and calm puppy

 

Dear Helene,

I am very grateful for getting this amazing, wonderful, obedient, quiet dog that you had promised me. Hero is the best thing that has happened to me and I couldn’t have done it without you. I have been waiting for a dog forever and have been asking my mom to get a dog for me for 8 years.

 One day, she finally said yes and I knew right away that I wanted a German Shepherd.  What I didn’t know is that it would be so hard to find a breeder that was reliable. We had looked at a lot of websites and found out that Missouri is notorious for selling dogs from puppy mills, so we decided to not get a dog from Missouri. We had almost settled on another breeder when we heard that they too were unreliable. But luckily, we found you, and only heard good things. We signed up to get one of your care packages where you send us some information about you and the litter and we knew that you were genuine. You would email us every time anything changed or there was important news and, when the puppy was born, you would send us photos and keep us updated almost daily. I don’t think that we could be happier with what we got. I loved that you cared a lot for your puppy and the place it went to and I remember the hour long talk we had the day before we got the puppy and how you reassured us that we would be in good hands.

Once we got the puppy at the airport, he looked so collected, but still scared (as any puppy should be if they were in a flight for a whole day, not knowing where he was going.) I took him out and he peed and pooped immediately, and as we found out, he was holding it the whole trip. We put him in the car and he cuddled close to me, begging for more warmth. When we got home, he was so clingy because he had got to know me better. We slept with him during the night on the floor and he would sleep right next to me and would lick my face whenever he needed to go out. He did everything that you taught him perfectly, with just a little push (sit, stay, come, walk with and without a leash, how to use a doggy door, and how to pee only on newspaper). I was very pleased with what he did and how well you taught him in such a short time. And I love how you still call whenever possible to check on him and to see how he is behaving. Now, my quiet, loving Hero is a lot more comfortable with his home and he fits in perfectly with my family.

Thank you Helene  for everything that you have done!!!

All the Best,  Anna and Rinu Tharakah

Columbia, MO.

Dear Helene,

What an armful of LOVE.  Wish everyone in the world understood the beauty and gift your puppies  bring us.  As far as I am concerned they are what it's all about, gentle loving angels who only want love in return.  They are without a doubt a greater accomplishment by God than his creation of PEOPLE!  Thank you for the loving start you give all yours.  It makes all the difference.  I watch Hansi's face and see what intelligence is going on.  His eyes, his intent focus on my eyes.  A beautiful communication without the need for words.  He is amazing, amazing.  I love him more every day if that is possible.   

I was just thinking of last Christmas when he came.  Of course the decorations were still up.  I was so afraid he would take some ornament in his mouth, that I set up a little pen for him.  IMMEDIATELY he started CLIMBING the rungs of the pen and got  out!  He was so smart from the beginning.  He understood he could get out and he understood HOW.  I immediately folded up the pen and did my best to watch his every move.  He never chewed anything, only his toys.  It was unheard of. 

Thank you for my sweet Hansi, and for being you.

hugs,

Sondra

Hi Helene,

It is a pleasure to write and tell you how happy we are with our beautiful Phoenix.

My other 5 dogs are accepting her, but only because she ignores them, and walks away from any consultation they provoke. I can’t believe how smart she is!  When one comes over to jump on her, she slowly walks away, and when the other one growls at her, she turns her head away, not giving them any reason to confront her. She is just a 10 week old puppy, and she acts like an experienced adult. Phoenix is integrating wonderful, and slowly all the other dogs are accepting her into the family. Can’t believe she has only been here for a little over a week. I can understand now, why it was so hard for you to give her up.

I am so glad you choice me and my family, after your visit to make sure my other rescue dogs would accept her.

My kids adore her, and she gets so much love and affection from them.

You were so patient and taking so much time, in introducing them one by one, making your corrections in dog language they understood. I was especially impressed with you, when you told my small barking dog, that never stops barking,  to stop. You did not say a word or even touch him. You just gave him eye contact. That was amazing. Thank you for all you have done to make our dreams come true.

Gratefully yours,

Jenny Tatum

Hi Helene,
My husband Steve has had German Shepherd's all his life, his first at the age of 4. You asked all the right questions and picked the perfect puppy for us. Steve said that Frawley is the best GSD he ever had.
I  thank you for allowing me to visit your ranch and meet Zarco & Kota , they are so beautiful, well mannered I can see why you breed them. You are an exceptional breeder it was a perfect match for perfect puppies. Frawley is my proof.

We had friends visiting at 9 weeks old they could not believe she was calm, affectionate, and so intelligent. On the 4th of July she was fearless, the fireworks were going off she just sat in the yard watched and listened.  The mail lady Wendy loves how well behaved she is, she sits and stays at the entry and observes. Frawley is so quick to learn new things, usually by the 2nd or 3rd time we show her.

We bring her everywhere and everyone ask to pet her, they say wow she remains  so calm, thanks to your socialization. They all say she is beautiful, where did you get her. I very proudly say Lenga's German Shepherd. 

During my visit to your ranch you showed my where Frawley grew up. You are amazing 9 puppies and the place was neat, clean and organized. All the puppies calm and trained, I really appreciate that you really love your babies and how you train them. It was so awesome that Frawley could sit, stay, walk with me and ride in the car. It really helped me driving  7 hours back home by myself.

Thank you for the food and toys for the ride home, it just shows how much you care about your babies transition to their new home. 

We appreciated your constant communication during the who process of getting a puppy. You sent us pictures weekly, you always answered all our questions. 

I recommend your puppies to anyone who want's the ultimate German Shepherd.

From beginning to end I know that I have a great new friend and lifetime of support.

Helene you are honest, dependable, and knowledgeable it's hard to find those qualities these days.

If anyone ever has questions about you or your puppies please feel free to give my email kctfg@hotmail.com

We can't thank you enough Hugs,

Steve, Kathy, Hoagie, Heidi (the dachshunds) & little Frawley from San Ramon, CA.

 

 SECOND REFERENCE LETTER FROM KATHY'S HUSBAND STEVE




Hi Helene,


Every kid we encounter while on our walks, wants to pet Frawley, your female puppy from Zarco and Kota. Who can blame them. She is so cute now, with her ears on top of her head.   Frawley is growing like a weed. Frawley been getting a heck of a workout every day now. She is so smart, and it amazes me how she can figure things out at this young age of only 12 weeks old.   sShe is she is always finding new ways to challenge us. It's really fun to see what she's going to dream up next. Frawley is having the time of her life on her walks. I've never known a dog so intelligent. Frawley amazes me by heeling and automatically sitting whenever I stop. I get such a proud feeling when I'm walking my beautiful Frawly, and she is behaving perfectly, and people can't believe how smart she is. She greets everyone, people and dogs alike, with perfect manners. I've even had people pull up to me in their cars to ask about her. She walks a few inches behind my left leg and watches my every move and reacts instantly to any change in direction or speed and is fully prepared for sudden stops. Utterly amazing. I can't wait to start working her on advanced techniques but for now I'm just so happy to see her having so much fun. Frawley is everything and more that I could have hoped for. Kathy says it's too bad that we didn't get a second puppy for her to frolic with.  She is a very polite and a comical player. she met a white lab named Diesel at puppy school and just adores him. You should see how much fun they have play bowing and goofing off. Everyone in the class watches and laughs. There's really nothing in the puppy school they can teach her that she doesn’t know already. I mainly take her there for the exposure to other people and dogs--and she is the best behaved puppy there. While all the other dogs are yapping and fussing, Frawley lays calmly at her daddy's feet watching the shenanigans with reserve. Like she is miles ahead of all the other dogs. She's cool as a cucumber. She is as calm as can be taking everything in. Perfect GSD trait. She doesn't startle, or bark unexpectedly, or show fear or nervousness in any situation, no matter how sudden or unexpected it is. Frawley is the most confident puppy I have ever had.  Oh, and barking, she just doesn't do it. Even if all the other dogs are barking she just watches them quietly. What a perfect puppy, she is. Frawley is definitely not a follower. Frawley will remind me that her water bowl is low or dinner is late with a little yap--otherwise she has a repertoire of funny little voice she uses to communicate--cutest thing you've ever heard. I am so proud of her, and I just can't brag enough about your wonderful work with GSD pups. The way you raise them, really does bring out the best personality of your puppies.


Thanks ever so much.....for the best puppy we could have ever hoped for.

I have now gotten my second puppy from Helene

His name is Amo. They are best friends now.

Hi, my family recently purchased a male puppy from Helene and he is extraordinary. He is very friendly, smart and beautiful. Helene was and continues to be informative, very helpful and was so sweet during the process. This was a big move for us as we had a German Shepherd previously that passed away due to old age and we were hesitant to take a chance on a new dog. I can say, all of us are so happy we made the move and purchased this puppy from Helene! Several of my friends are very familiar with Shepherds and they are so impressed with this puppy!!  

My puppy Zarco is so smart it is scary! He is very sensitive, but I can see him being very protective! His ears are starting to stand up.

He is so beautiful! I love him so much! H is like my son! I now he misses you and his siblings! He puppy talks to me,

and I tell him stories and I swear he listens.! Thank you Helene for such an amazing gift from God! And YOU!!

Feel free to reach out to me if you wish.

                                       Sweet, gentle, & calm Female from Zarco & Kota

                                                   

 

 

Dear Helene,

Calli is the best service dog puppy I have ever owned. She really is darkening up, and her tan is turning more of a goldish red, like her daddy.  She walks with me every day to the mailbox, and she walks with me to bring the trash cans back up to the house on trash day. She loves the FED EX guy, but then again, he brings her milk bone treats when he comes. She doesn't quite know what the school bus is about, especially with the beeping back up signals. We are working on her wanting to chase the kids on bicycles, but she knows far enough, and sit stay. Her down, and stay at the long distance is really turning out . She is so very smart, and most things you only have to show her a couple of times, and she knows it, and most importantly, retains it. I really would recommend that anyone wanting a calm and smart and very loving companion talk to you about getting a puppy from Calli's parents, Kota and Zarco. I have seen and owned many Shepherds over the years, and by far are you producing the best, calmest,  and most loving German Shepherds that I have ever had the pleasure of owning.  Pictures are definitely on the way. I am again so very sorry for the lapse of time that has passed without photos  and emails.  I promise you, that I will contact you when I am able. and I thank you for being so patient with me. I am really trying my hardest to please everyone, and do right by Calli.  I also wanted to let you know, I received an email from AKC about a new class for beginner puppy conformation . It teaches socialization with other puppies, people, judges, show prep etc. sounds like a really good thing. I know Calli will be the smartest and best puppy in the class, thanks to your early socialization. Thanks so very much for allowing Calli to be a part of my life.  God bless you and your family. Stay well. Talk to you soon.

Friends Forever,

Tammy

 We absolutely recommend Helene 100%!~ We originally met her in 2003 when we got our first German Shepherd puppy from her, called Zeus. Zeus was extraordinarily sweet, smart and wonderful with children. In fact, his loving disposition won many people who were fearful of dogs over, and they are now dog lovers. Zeus passed early in 20014, and we grieve our loss every day. Our 5 year old son still talks about how much he misses his fur-brother, and how he can't wait to see him again in Heaven.

Helene is truly an exceptional breeder. Whenever we had a question, Helene responded with prompt e-mails. All through Zeus puppy hood, and as a newbie pet parents, we had a slew of questions. As well as throughout Zeus life. She even babysat Zeus when we went on vacation. Helene even came to our house when we had a potty problem with Zeus, and solved the problem. She really has delivered on every promise she made us. Even recently, she kindly sent me digital  photos of Zeus and his Dam for my memory book. She dug through years of archives for me.

Since our son is an only child, and we are pet parents at heart, we went to Helene for our second puppy, knowing that one of her extraordinary pups would complete our family again. We felt the void of sharing our lives with a pet, and we missed the patter patter of furry paws. Helene kept us constantly apprised of Kota's pregnancy. She went us many adorable photos of the puppies over the weeks. We were able to visit them twice before we got to bring our Knight home, and she matched his personality perfectly for us.

Knight has brought us such happiness ! He is sweet, loving and super smart. At 8 weeks old, Knight came to us already knowing how to come, sit, and use a doggy door, and quickly caught onto walking nicely on a leash. At 4 months old, he rings a bell to ask to go outside. He can even wait quietly for some of his treats. He loves people and children, thanks to Helene's early socialization. Knight and our son have become best buddies, and are inseparable. Knight loves to cuddle and I love it ! He is our love bug.

I have raved about Helene over the years because she is so very dedicated and so generous with her time and expertise. She has proven her lifetime guarantee to us time and time again !

Sincerely,

Ryan and Melissa Hardy

                                                                                       Neechi Von Baron De Sol

 

                                                                                        Reference Letter For My Neechi

My husband, Brian and I, Christine, got a male puppy from Helene from Lengasgsds.com from Southern California. Neechi is from Kota Von Egron. We are delighted with him. Helene was kind enough to fly Neechi to Connecticut where we live. He was aleady crate trained and knew his basic obedience.

First I want to tell everyone what an extraordinary puppy package Helene sent us. It really is worth looking at. Plus it's FREE and gives you a very good idea of why Helene's puppies are so exceptional. The puppy folder Helene will give you when you pick up your puppy, is also incredible. It gives you so much information Like the well done medical records she encloses for your new puppy, and why Shepheds are so good with families and especially children. I loved the socialization information she gave from 8 weeks to 21 weeks. Very informative and well worth reading.  So many other things that most breeders do not take the time to do. Also, she gives a lot of information about your puppy's parents and grandparents, and you can see she has put a lot of thought into it, and picks the perfect parents to mate to produce the kind of puppies she can fully guarantee, including personality. She really is the best breeder anyone could hope to find, and our Neech is fantastic!

I can't say enough good things about our Neechi. He was and is everything Helene promised. He is very playful, gentle and calm with our children. I am not experienced with German Shepherd puppies, and emailed Helene almost every day, asking a whole bunch of questions for months and months. Helene was so patient with me, and answered each and every question and concern I had promptly in a simple and straight forward way, I could understand. Helene is so knowledgable about German Shepherds. When she says she will be there for you, even after you get your puppy home, she means it. With Helene's help and guidance I was able to be a better pet owner, and Neechi turned out to be a very friendly and sociable with people, children and other dogs. But thanks to Helene's early socialization which helped a lot. Neechi has turned out to be one of the best dogs I have ever had!

Helene really did bring out in Neechi a very exceptional personality, with her loving care, and conditioning she gives to her puppies to bring out the best personalities and temperaments possible. The way she matches each puppy to each family in the gualities they want is amazing. Helene has a real passion for what she does, and it shows in her puppies.

Anyone that is lucky enough to get one of her beautful puppies, can consider themselves very fortunate. Neechi is so exceptional in every way, Brian and I are considering to breed him so other people will also be blessed to have such an incrediable puppy like we have. I know Helene will help us in this, too. When Helene says something she means it, and her word is gold and you can count on it 100%, because she sincerely means what she says. Not only are her puppies a priority, but also the families she deals with.

Neechi has filled our life with such joy and happiness. I can't imagine our lives with him. I know I speak for my kids, as well. Helene is one of the best breeders around, because her love and devotion for her puppies is unmatched by anyone. Helene does not stop once her puppies have left. But continues the communication, no matter the distance, and for the life of your puppy. We feel so fortunate to have found this wonderful woman that has now become a friend.

With much gratitude for giving us the best puppy in the world!

Brian and Christine Seholm from Connecticut.

Dear Helene,

I'm so sorry it's taken so long to write this. Life just takes over sometimes.

We are thrilled with our Gem. She's a sweetheart. She's only 9 months old but she's such a great dog.

To anyone thinking about getting one of Helene's pups, it's worth it.

When we started thinking about getting another dog, my son and husband both said they wanted a German Shepherd. While doing my research, I learned about all the terrible health problems that can occur when the dogs are poorly bred. When I came across your website- Helene, it was just perfect. A healthy dog WITH a personality that fit our family. I was so excited to get started and wait for the right dog.

We were lucky enough to get one of Zarco's last angels, our "little" girl- Gem. She's sweet, attentive, smart, calm and a joy to have around. I am looking forward to working with her and having her train to be a therapy dog that can come to work with me and I know Helene will support us along the way.

We had a dog behaviorist in our home to work with our other dog-a pound rescue- and she commented several times on how calm Gem was and how smart she was. She said the only word that even started to capture Gem's looks was "majestic".

Recently, I have noticed how much Gem watches over our children. Several times, Gem has been outside enjoying the weather and she will come in but if my daughter walks out, Gem will turn right back around and walk around with her. I can look out the window and see Gem following her around while she plays. She'll play football with my son and lay by our feet at night. She's the kind of dog  you imagine when you think of a German Shepherd.

Thank you again Helene for working with us to get Gem and we look forward to a long lasting relationship with you.

 

Hugs, The Davidsons (Tara, Jeremy, Vincent, Caitlyn, Chloe and Gem)

Dear Helene,

Rowan and I wanted to write and tell you that anyone looking for a great German Shepherd dog should definitely contact you. Riley is all that we wanted, and all that you promised,  and even more. He is such a joy to be around. He makes our family so very happy. In the process of choosing a dog, you asked us what we wanted in a German Shepherd dog. Your questions narrowed it down perfectly, and you picked the exact puppy we were looking for. He is so incredible  in everyway.

He is fun loving with kids and friendly with other dogs, and he is a great watch dog too. He is very smart and learns extremely fast. When I took him to a prerequisite obedience class to prepare him to work for the Canine Good Citizen certificate he was amazing. The instructor commented on how fast he learned everything. I am so proud of him, thanks to your early training.

I don't think there has ever been a day when I took him for a walk that someone (usually more than one) has commented on how beautiful he is and how well  behaved he is.  People with other shepherds have even said he is the most beautiful German Shepherd dog they have ever seen! As you know, some have asked who the breeder is and, of course, I gave them your information.

During the process of him growing up, I have had numerous questions, and you have always been there to answer each and everyone of them. You have been so very helpful, and we just want to thank you again for all your good advice. I can’t even imagine a better breeder than you, and will gladly recommend you to anyone that wants a dog like our special Riley. They will never go wrong with getting one of your puppies.

Look forward to breed him in the future, with you handling the breeding.

All the best to you,

Dear Helene:

My delay in writing this recommendation is in no part any form of hesitation to recommend you and the  outstanding German Shepherds you provide to people like myself and my family.  Our family of four was  looking  for that “perfect dog” after we lost a shepherd at the young age of 8 to a devastating disease called degenerative myelopathy.  We desired the type of shepherd you provide, the large, straight-back shepherd.   After several months of research, we decided to visit you in Southern California. We were not disappointed.   Your shepherds showed great beauty, strength, gentleness and health.  Zarco met us at the gate and we fell in love!

And now I would like to comment of the wisdom to pick you as our breeder! There are many attributes needed to breed such beautiful dogs, but, first and foremost, you must have dedication to the breed.   You showed your constant care and dedication from the day we met you.  And, after placing our trust in you and making a deposit, we always felt reassured as you communicated with us on Sophie’s birth through 8 weeks of age.  We never worried about her socialization, feeding, home environment or future health when we knew you were at the helm from the second she was born.  I sense you know all about the lifecycle of a German Shepherd from preconception to old age and your love for the breed helps you to produce some outstanding dogs.  We know you provided  Sophie and her litter with the best possible environment even with such a large litter!  She came to us loving and sweet and full of life!  Of course, she can be a handful and requires continuous training and socialization, but you gave her the best start possible to provide us with the kind of dog that we wanted. 

 

Needless to say, my family and I feel very fortunate to share our lives with such a great pup.  She quickly made her way into our hearts…that was easy!   Thanks Helene for the warmth and clarity you always provide.    

Sincerely, Cindi Ruggiero and family.

I'M SURE YOU HAVE HEARD THE OLD SAYING, IF IT'S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, THEN IT PROBABLY ISN'T TRUE, WELL WHEN I FIRST READ WHAT ALL HELENE PROMISED IF YOU BOUGHT ONE OF HER PUPPY'S, I HAD SECOND THOUGHTS.  BUT WHEN SHE SENT THE PACKAGE FOR ME TO LOOK AT TO CHOOSE A PUPPY AND GET TO PICK THE MOM AND DAD AND THE RESULTS WERE PUPPY'S WERE AWSOME I THOUGHT WOW IF NOTHING ELSE I WOULD GET A BEAUTIFUL DOG.  WELL, HELENE'S PROMISES WERE ALL CARRIED THROUGH.
FIRST OF ALL SHE SENDS YOU PICTURES OF THE PUPPY AT LEAST TWICE A WEEK, IT WAS SO EXCITING, I COULD HARDLY WAIT TO GET HOME TO SEE THE NEW PICTURES.  SHE ASKS YOU WHAT YOU WANT IN A PUPPY, ACTIVE, OR CALM OR PROTECTIVE AND OTHER QUALITIES, AND  I THOUGHT HOW CAN SHE DETERMINE THAT, WELL SHE DOES.  MY PUPPY IS ACTIVE AND PROTECTIVE.  MY SON ALSO PURCHASED A PUPPYAND HIS IS WHAT HE WANTED, BIG AND GENTLE BUT ALSO PROTECTIVE.  HE HAS THREE KIDS AND SHE IS SO GENTLE WITH THEM.  THE BEST THING IS THAT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS WHEN YOU BRING THE DOGS HOME, SHE ANSWERS YOUR QUESTIONS WITHIN A DAY.  LIKE MY DOG WAS MINDING GREAT AND THEN I HAD TO WORK FOR THREE DAYS AND WHEN I WAS OFF SHE WAS A LITTLE MONSTER, I ASKED HELENE WHAT TO DO, SHE WROTE BACK I FOLLOWED INSTRUCTION AND WITHIN ONE DAY SHE WAS BACK TO MY SWEET OBEDIENT GIRL.  OH SHE HAS NEVER POOPED IN THE HOUSE,
AND SHE WAS GREAT FOR NOT HAVING A DOGGY DOOR, SHE ACTURALLY LEARNED HOW TO GO TO THE DOOR AND LET ME KNOW SHE HAD TO OUT.  ANOTHER GREAT THING, THEY ARE CRATE TRAINED, WHEN XINA IS TIRED AND READY FOR BED SHE GOES TO HER CRATE AND GOES TO SLEEP.  MY SON AND I LOOKED AND RESEARCHED FOR ALMOST A YEAR TO FIND A GOOD BREEDER BEFORE WE FOUND LENGA'S GERMAN SHEPHERDS. AN  EXAMPLE ON HOW SMART SHE IS, SHE IS 11 WKS OLD AND SHE WAS LAYING DOWN BY THE COUCH WHERE MY HUSBAND WAS WATCHING TV.  SHE WAS CHEWING ON HER BALL WHILE LAYING ON HER BACK, THEN SHE PLACED THE BALL DOWN AND WOULD PUSH THE BALL TOWARD MY HUSBAND WITH HER SNOUT HE WOULD TOSS IT NEXT TO HER AND THEY CONTINUED THIS FOR ABOUT 15 MIN.  OH AND SHE PLAYS HIDE AND SEEK WITH ME.  WELL I COULD GO ON AND ON BUT IF YOU WANT REALLY EXCEPTIONAL PUPPY,
HELENE'S GERMAN SHEPHERDS ARD WORTH EVERY PENNY.

HI HELENE

 

SO SORRY THAT I HAVE NOT KEPT IN TOUCH.  I DON'T REMEMBER IF I TOLD HOW SORRY I WAS TO HEAR ABOUT ZARCO.  XINA IS DOING WONDERFUL, SHE IS SO SMART.  I KNOW ALOT OF PEOPLE SAY THEY ENJOY THE PUPPY STAGE MORE, BUT I GET SO MUCH JOY OUT HER NOW.  I HAVE TAUGHT HER TO SAY GOOD MORNING.  SHE STILL SLEEPS IN THE SAME SPOT IN THE BEDROOM AT NIGHT AS SHE DID AS A PUPPY.  WHEN WE WAKE UP I SAY GOOD MORNING TO HER AND IN HER DOGGY VOICE SHE SAYS GOOD MORNING BACK.  I DON'T PLAY WITH HER TILL SHE TELLS ME GOOD MORNING.  AT NIGHT BEFORE WE GO TO BED I TELL HER TO CHECK OUT THE BACK YARD AND SHE RUNS THE PERIMETER BARKING AND THEN COMES TO  ME.  SHE IS VERY PROTECTIVE OF ME BUT SHE IS ALSO VERY COMPASSIONATE.  ONE DAY MY NIECE CAME OVER AND WAS CRYING, XINA WENT OVER TO HER AND LAID HER HEAD ON MY NIECE'S CHEST AND LOOKED UP AT HER WITH SAD EYES AS IF TO SAY " DON'T CRY".  MY NIECE COULDN'T BELIEVE IT BECAUSE USUALLY XINA IS ALL EXCITED TO SEE HER AND BRINGS HER TOYS SO SHE CAN PLAY.  SHE ABSOLUTELY LOVES THE WATER AND SHE LOVES PLAYING BALL.  SHE COULD PLAY SHORT STOP ON A BASEBALL TEAM. I COULD GO ON AND ON HOW WONDERFUL SHE IS.  ZEVA, HER SISTER, IS DOING WELL ALSO AND TOTALLY LOVES HER KIDS. I HOPE YOU ENJOY THESE PICTURES.

XINA'S VERY PROUD MOM

Dear Helene,


I’m writing this letter to anyone who is looking for a German Shepherd puppy.  Helene is such a warm, loving person, who is so passionate about her  dogs and the people who purchase her dogs are life long friends.   She truly cares about her dogs. 

She had asked for a picture of my kids and I emailed her one and she sent in the mail a really cute collage with all the puppies around that picture.  My daughter Gianna was so excited about it.  She has it hanging in her room!

 

We wanted a black and tan “big” male puppy.  We waited through two litters until we got our beautiful Maximus!  And it was well worth the wait.  The 1st litter was ALL females.  Maximus is from the beautiful Zarco and Keira. 

Helene is with you throughout the whole process.  She answers all your questions and responds to you immediately.  I love getting the emails from her about how the puppies are doing each day along with the pictures of them. 

 

When we finally got to meet Helene and the beautiful Zarco.  Our family just feel in love with Zarco!  Zarco is so well with babies.  Zarco greeted our son, Vincent with alots of kisses!  We knew we would get the perfect puppy.  Helene spent time with us the day we picked Max up and going over everything.  She had a special folder made just for Max was very cute!

We still speak to her and send her updates on how Max is doing along with pictures.  I can’t wait to get another puppy from her she is the BEST!

 

Warmest Wishes,

Robyn, Frank, Gianna, Vincent & “MAX” Arnone

Dear Helene,

 

Kona is doing just great and growing into the beautiful Shepherd, like her mother, Keira.

  We just finished her last vaccination!  At 4 months old  she weighed in at 40lbs!!  Almost the same weight as our son Micah.  :)  

We are so happy with Kona. She is everything you promised. She is great with the kids. I can’t thank you enough for giving us such a great puppy.

 

Thank you again, Helene, and

my sincerest apologies for the lateness. 

 

Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Thank you, again,

Pam Kawai

Pam has now gotten a second puppy from me, as a companion to their sweet Kona, their first puppy from me.
