My name is Peggy Stoltzfus. I am the owner of Top Gun Shepherds. I am going to tell you a little bit about how Top Gun Shepherds evolved. I started out having an occasional litter back in 2004 with my family pet Liberty. She is a purebred German Shepherd that I bought from a hobby breeder in Culpepper, Virginia. Liberty, or Libby as we call her, in my eyes is a gorgeous black and red pup. The parents were on the premises when we went to buy her. They were friendly yet stand-offish and looked like good looking German Shepherds to me. I blindly purchased a German Shepherd not knowing pedigree, genetics or even temperament of this pup. I got lucky. She grew to be a good protector and family pet, genetics aside, because I have to say, I knew nothing about genetics. When she was three years old, strong and beautiful, we decided to breed her. Puppies would be fun to have, right?? Everyone loves puppies! So I started my search for a stud, still not knowing about the genetics that come into play. I paid the fee and drove the distance two or three times in a week and it didn’t take. Yep, all we had paid for was a horrible case of fleas. At that point, I decided to purchase a male pup and try to have my own litters.
In December of 2011, I imported from Germany a titled male, named Faustor Van Noort, aka Sam, so I could have my own stud. Sam is a schutzhund III, Kkl1 lbz. He was born on April 26, 2008. He is a beautiful black and red showline shepherd. He has an impressive pedigree starting with his dad, the famous Tyson Vom Kottersbusch. Sam has a wonderful temperament that is present in his pups.
