RiverRock German Shepherds


RiverRock German Shepherds is a preservation hobby kennel in St. Cloud, MN dedicated to breeding outstanding show, performance, and companion dogs.  Breeder, Dr. Zoa Rockenstein, is an AKC Breeder of Merit and Signatory of the German Shepherd Dog Club of America’s Breeders’ Code of Ethics.  She is the co-breeder/co-owner of CH. RiverRock’s Maybe I’m Amazed, awarded Best Puppy at both the U.S. and Canadian National Specialty Shows in 2018.

RiverRock German Shepherds are extraordinary companion dogs who display the breed’s versatility in conformation, herding, rally, tracking, scent work, agility, obedience, and other events. Our breeding program is based on our core values:  Soundness, Performance, Beauty, and Style (in that order).  Our dogs are protective, not aggressive.  They are motivated to perform, but are not endlessly demanding.

Show, performance, and companion puppies will be available in the winter, spring, and summer of 2022.  The puppy contract includes a health guarantee.  All breeding stock are DM tested and OFA-certified.

Applications, and deposits from approved buyers, are being accepted now.  See the Puppies page on our website for the puppy application and for pictures of the sires and dams, along with litter pedigrees of planned litters.  Please submit the application as directed on the website, before contacting me about puppy availability.  We will have solid black, and black and tan, puppies available sired by Select Excellent Ch. RiverRock’s Stormy Weather HSAS (Arnold) out of Maturity Victrix/Best in Maturity Select Ch. RiverRock’s Serendipity v Anne Isle (Sara) to be homed in late February 2022.  Two additional breedings are underway, with a second litter to be homed in April 2022 and a third projected for June-July 2022.  All are sired by Arnold.  See pictures of Arnold and Sara below.

Strong preference will be given to show and/or performance homes.  I am happy to mentor seriously committed beginners, juniors, and owner-handlers.  RiverRock puppies are not available as “pets only”.  There is an expectation of involvement in at least one AKC sport (including, but not limited to, conformation, scent work, obedience, herding, therapy work, agility, and rally) to the first titling level out of respect for the breed as a working dog.  A RiverRock puppy is more than a pet:  it is an adventure!
