What's in the name? Breezewood's Genuine Damascus Steele
The legendary sword known as the Damascus steel intimidated the European invaders into the 'Holy Lands' of the Islamic civilization throughout the Crusades (AD 1095-1270). Damascus swords were of legendary sharpness and strength, and were apocryphally claimed to be able to cut through lesser quality European swords and even rock. Blacksmiths in Europe attempted to match the steel, using the pattern welding technique of alternating layers of steel and iron, folding and twisting the metal during the forging process. The technique used to create original Damascus steel is now a matter of historical conjecture. Many raw materials and the metalsmiths' recipes are no longer available.

As advocates for the German Shepherd breed, we try our best to make sure that we breed only top quality specimens. This applies to all the breeding stock in our kennel, as well as any outside studs we choose to use and any outside bitches intended to be bred to our studs. There are countless purebred dog enthusiasts that whelp litters without taking into consideration the possible health risks, physical defects and hereditary diseases common in their breed. We do.
The owner of any bitch that is to be bred to one of our studs must produce all of the following clearances to obtain pre approval:
ü 5 Generation Pedigree -Pedigree allows one to research the family history of the bitch, and to know what physical and medical traits the puppies may inherit. ü Veterinarian Certification for Brucellosis; Tested negative for brucellosis within the last two weeks. ü OFA Certification; Hips & Elbows (Prelims Accepted) ü Bitch owners must agree that ANY/ALL puppies that are NOT going to SHOW HOMES be sold with a AKC "Limited" registration with no exception.
We reserve the right to refuse services to any bitch at our discretion. Prices of a stud fee is done on a private treaty only which will then be outlined on a signed contract.
We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation, and for doing your part to help ensure a healthful future for our wonderful breed!
