Please Visit our Secure and Safe Dog Stores

(Just in time for the holidays) to find items for your friends and family members right here at Christmas:

1) Fine GSD Collectibles

Interested in our newest line of German Shepherd Collectibles and gifts. The exclusive German Shepherd only merchandise shown here are also available in many more dog breeds than the German Shepherd ones pictured - just in case you're interested. Just browse around at your leisure.

2) Our Ebay Dog Store Page

3) German Shepherd Handbag Page

This German Shepherd purse is crafted of the highest quality materials, featuring a large image of the German Shepherd accented by real leather trim and handles. Handsome metal rings and feet add fashion flair and durability while the zipper top and front pocket open to lined compartments that hold all your belongings.

4) 2008 GSD Calendars Page

Find here some of the best looking GSD calendars that I've seen. There are many sizes, designs and types to choose from.

5) GSD signs Page

We make each of our signs one at a time by cutting vinyl material lettering (much like what you see on car advertisements or on store windows) and applying the vinyl design directly to each metal blank, so it does take a bit of time to create each one of these GSD signs from scratch.

6) GSD Products Page

We will list sources for many of the items you will have to have for your German Shepherd, such as food, beds and collars; and we will also list places to find those GSD products that will make owning your German Shepherd just a bit more fun as well as comfortable, such as dog insurance, health supplements, crates, gifts, and toys. If you're in the market for GSD training aids, fencing products, or grooming supplies, we'll help you with that as well.

Our GSD Wish List

Total German Shepherd is now collecting Purina dog food weight circle donations to help out various GSD rescue organizations throughout the US and abroad.

Everyone who uses Purina Pro Plan or Purina One or any other Purina dog foods should carefully save the weight circles from their bags.

Not sure what we're talking about? There are some Purina weight circles (photo examples) on our site at:

You can send your weight circle donations to the address below:

Weight Circle Donations: Total German Shepherd Weight Circles,

333 Old Antioch Church Rd.,

Carrollton, GA 30117

Total German Shepherd will collect and redeem the weight circles and donate the accumulated Purina "checks" to various GSD Rescues throughout the country which can be redeemed for various rewards, including checks for veterinary services and for food.

Please help us to help all the valuable GSD rescue organizations in their effort to save, give veterinary treatment, behavior and training help and eventual rehoming of each and every dog in their program. With your help in the saving of these tiny paper circles, we can all help so many less fortunate German Shepherds.
