My name is Yvonne
Tanenbaum and I would like to tell you a few things
about our dogs and our breeding practices.
to Lehigh Acres, FL in 2002 we were formerly located in a rural
community named Alva, (Ft Myers area, SW Fla) on 30 acres in the middle
of an orange grove. Because of this some of our dogs
developed a taste for oranges and one even would go in the grove
searching them out. We had a creek on one side, hence the
name Creekvue, which the dogs all enjoyed in the hot Florida weather.
I am a member of the
Shepherd Dog Club
of America,Inc. and signer of
of ethics. I am a former member of the Ft. Myers German Shepherd Dog
Club. In the past I've served as President, V. President, Recording
Secretary, Show Secretary and was editor of the clubs newsletter. We
have bred and finished many lovely Champion dogs, had one ROM bitch and
have gotten a few Obedience titles along the way. I've had
all my life but in 1976 I acquired my first German Shepherd Dog.
Immediately I realized I would always have a German Shepherd
in my life.

They are THE most versatile breed and they are amazingly
smart and loyal, there is not many dog activities they don't excel at.
And then there's the movement.......to see one doing
a flying trot is absolutely breathtaking!

I consider my dogs to be members of the family. Because of
this we are a very small kennel and breed have at the most one litter
a year. Each litter
is planned with Health, Temperament, Structure, Beauty and movement in
Our breeding stock
either OFA Certified or X-rayed free
of Hip and
Elbow Dysplasia as well as being screened for temperament and genetic
puppy comes with a written & signed contract for health and
genetic defects. Also in the contract is a clause stating
that if for any reason the buyers cannot keep the dog for whatever
reason they will return him to us. As a breeder I feel it is
important to be responsible for every pup born here. I would not want
to ever hear of one our dogs going to a shelter, rescue or laboratory
and will do whatever possible to prevent this. This is why we also put
a Microchip in any pup or dog before they leave our property.
Every puppy or dog
leaving here goes to his/her new home
papers, sales contract, health certificate, vet records, 4 generation
pedigree, color pictures of the parents along with copies of their OFA
and other certifications. (You can also see each dogs pedigree from
their pages complete with links to pictures of most dogs in each
pedigree.) To make the transition for the puppy easier we also provide
a supply of food, a collar, leash, & toy. To make the
transition for the pups new family easier we provide information on
raising and training their new family member. I encourage the pups new
family to keep in touch and am here to provide guidance and help in
raising & training if needed.
