OUR MISSION: to produce the finest family dogs,
including service, therapy, and 'special needs' companions. A great dog begins with careful breeding,
then is shaped by great owners.
All our lines are registered AKC insuring pedigree and good health
record-keeping wherein genetic authenticity of pedigree/lineage/health and even purity of genetics is verifiable. This
is not to say that a CKC dog is inferior, but CKC usually indicates a lack of verifiable pedigree for one reason or another.
Example: from 1980's through early 1990's, many GSD's suffered disease and horrible temperament issues
(sloped croup, dysplasia, gastric torsion, myleopathy, biting children, etc.) It was much easier to track unhealthy pedigree
with AKC than CKC. When fresh stock was brought in from Europe, the GSD made a wonderful comeback. All our
stock imports from Europe, is governed by the SV of Germany, the foremost authority in the world on GSD's. Our dogs are living
well into their teens.
We consistently offer the largest, healthiest, most beautiful GSD's,
Poodles, and Shepadoodles in North America. No hip or Elbow issues, IBD, Parvo, Myleopathy, or gastro-intestinal
issues. We agressively treat intestinal parasites until the pups are adopted and strongly encourage treatment post-aquisition
until 14 weeks of age.
There is a certain "look" a well-bred GSD, Poodle, and Shepadoodle has- it is called 'Breed
Standard". All our dogs meet the 'Breed Standards'. Whether you adopt from us or not, HOLD BREEDERS
TO A HIGH STANDARD so the Shepadoodle perserveres with the dignity it deserves and finds it's rightful place in
history. Talk to us. We know. Thank
you all. Sincerely, McCumberHaus

F1B coat is curlier and tighter. 'Sarge' and 'Maluna' are the proud parents of a healthy litter of F1B Multi-Gen's. We
offer expertly trained adolescent beauties from each litter. These great examples of fine breeding visually evaluate
our genetics design and clearly display the benefits of fine breeding, beginning with trademark coats, temperament,
intelligence, beauty, and size.

family dog. He was 16 weeks old when this photo was taken. Note the calm attentiveness of this young pup! This is the
family's first dog because of severe allergies. What a great

our favorite F1B Shepadoodles of all time-"Stanley". (son of Chewbaka and Napoleon). Our dogs are taught
manners first. Total strangers always comment on "how well behaved" our dogs are. We have specific breeding
procedures that bring these qualities out in every litter..

(above) "The Crew" Our 2014
litter of F1 Shepadoodles. Half of this litter was held back and trained for specialized service ranging from elderly companion
dog to diabetic alert dogs. Probably the finest litter of F1 pups in the history of this hybrid. Definitely our finest litter
of F1's to date. We just mated the same parents and expect a repeat of these fine dogs by April 2016. The
waiting list is almost full. A few slots remain. Our F1's are the finest and the rest of America agrees. Don't wait to own
a part of history!

(above) F1B male Shepadoodle "Zachery."
He is intelligent, sweet, and mellow. These dogs have great temperament. Very expressive eyes, softest coat you will
ever touch. Zach has succeeded in completing his preliminary training and has earned his Official Therapy Vest! Zachery
is owned by Dr. Synowski. We congratulate them both for their hard work.
, an F1B, was only a pup when he was separated from his new owners just hours after arriving by plane to Toronto. Lost
in rural Ontario for a week, Billy found his way home across the wilderness of Canada. An 'incredible journey' just like the
Disney film. A true testament to our bloodlines, as our GSD's are Shutzhund Titled in field and tracking. They are raised
at a high elevation, which helps make them strong, hearty, and athletic, with keen instincts. Without the great
genetic influences from Champion AKC McCumberHaus stock, Billy may not have made it home.
(above) Heather is a Type-1 diabetic
and a Registered.Nurse in Kansas City. Heather was on the list to receive a diabetic alert dog when the price of the dog went
from $10,000.00 to $25,000.00 with no explanation from the trainer. Distraught, Heather contacted our kennel for help. We
hand-picked 'Seamus" and trained him here at our facility for 8 months. Seamus alerted twice to Heather's
low blood sugar in his first 24 hours there. Keep in mind this juvenile just got off the plane and did not
know Heather from Adam. 'Seamus' is a wonderful testament to our dogs and our program. We saved Heather $15,000.00
(above) "Daisy" is one of
the 'Three Amigos' (above left) She is all grown up and was professionally trained for service to a hearing/speech
impaired family. Daisy has learned to "SIGN". Daisy and family have made many trips to Washington DC to demonstrate
and "Zoe". We love this photo as it displays the incredible intelligence and emotional depth of our dogs. 'Buttercup'
is first daughter of Captain Jack and 'Gigi'. 'Zoe' is the first child of Brian and Meghan Berke.

dogs as you navigate our website. Our dogs were designed for temperament and health, qualities that must be present for SERVICE
and THERAPY dogs. Beauty is icing on the cake. We are so proud.
