About Us

We are located in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains, in Ruby, NY. Our German Shepherds are of the Czech and German working bloodlines. We have over 20 years experience with training and breeding German Shepherd Dogs. We are dedicated to preserving what the German Shepherd Dog represents. Our dogs are known for their versatility, intelligence and devotion. Vom Rubin Kennels breeds only the finest bloodlines and produces only a few select litters per year. Our dogs are bred with the intent of producing top quality working dogs or excellent companion dogs.

All of our puppies are AKC registered and are family raised. We believe in early socialization, human imprinting and exposure to many common sights, sounds and textures. From birth until the time that they leave our family, all of our puppies are observed and temperament tested. They are hand selected to meet the needs of their new owners. So whether you are looking for a family dog or a working dog we have the right German Shepherd for you.


"Dog breeding must be the work of a dog lover, and cannot be aprofession. Breeding on a large scale and keeping dogs in a kennel is the ruin of all sound shepherd dog breeding."
