Breeding Program

Our goal in raising German Shepherd Dogs is to present puppies with good health and sound temperaments so others can enjoy the security and companionship these dogs provide. Whether you’re walking through your neighborhood, at home or in your car, there is no better feeling than to have a GSD at your side. We specialize in providing these dogs to other German Shepherd enthusiasts. We don’t feel the need to provide aggressive dogs, but rather dogs that will provide protection naturally, through instinct. We only breed dogs that have extensive pedigrees and bloodlines that provide sound temperaments. We do not condone puppy mills or breeders that do not care properly for their dogs. We are not a commercial kennel, and all our dogs are personally owned and cared for by us.

Our pups start with their socialization program at the early age of 5 weeks. All pups come with a personalized follow-up program to aid their families to raise their pups to their fullest potential, whether that be for a family companion, or a sport or working dog.

Our breeding program is based on imported European bloodlines, and our studs and dams are tested and selected personally by Nino Islamcevic

 We specialize in German Shepherd Breeding. So give us a call if you are looking for German Shepherd Breeders in Grand Rapids Michigan!

Belgian Malinois and Rottweiler studs available, and occasionally puppies.

K9 Academy Internaional Dogs

Harley Vom Castle Black is a highly driven female with an excellent temperament and is very athletic.

German Shepherd Dog

Tank vom Harisburg is a very powerful, strong male. He is the off-spring of Gittano Semper Wictor, 4x VA1, V62 BSZC 08, IPO3, KKL1, and Shadow Vom Harisburg . Tank excels at any task given to him and has been trained in personal protection and narcotics detection. Tank is a large male with big bones and a rich red pigment in his coat. He has strong protection drives that are paired with a very solid/ stable temperament making him incredibly outgoing and social. We kept Tank in our breeding program because he exhibits many of the qualities his father Gittano Semper Wictor has. Tank loves to work and is very active but has the ability to calm down quickly and relax in the house. We believe that having a solid on and off switch is highly important for every dog to be able to quickly react to any situation, but to relax and happily lay down. Like his father Gittano Semper Wictor, Tank will continue to produce puppies with a stable temperament that will have a nice on and off switch, enabling them to become the perfect family companions.


Iron Garo Von Harisburg – Garo is the son of Stormfront’s Brawnson, one of the best police K-9’s in the USA, and Sina von Haus Sindern ZW 64.  Garo is narcotic detection certified, BH titled excellent, and has excellent drives.  Garo is consistently producing very nice pups!
