looked for two years for the right breeder and the
right German Shepherd. Melissa was one of the first
breeders we interviewed and we were so impressed by
her, her standards and her dogs. Now that we have
gone through the process and have gotten a puppy
from Vom Wenner Haus, I am 100% confident that we
chose the right breeder. We could not be more happy
with our little Dante! He is so confident,
intelligent and loving thanks to the great start he
got. We got numerous updates after the puppies were
born as to how they were doing, what they were doing
and places Melissa was taking them. We were so
impressed! If you are looking for a breeder, I
would highly recommend Vom Wenner Haus and Melissa
McIntyre, we are so fortunate to have found her.

have a Vom Wenner Haus dog from Melissa McIntyre through
Cel Hope in Wyoming. She is a 1 1/2 year old dark sable.
She is an amazing dog. I use her in K9 Search and Rescue
in Southern Utah. My other SAR leader has one of her
relatives as well for SAR named Laser (Buzz x Ceyla).
They are very sound dogs.
Watching Laser work is
an amazing privilege. My dog is on her way to being
certified and they are bred to have high drive, but also
an off switch so-to-speak. With proper stimulation she
great family dog. She is very behaved with my cats and
my 8 year old.
Her dogs are working line dogs.
They care deeply about placing them in the right homes
so if anyone is looking in the future, I'd call her and

"Things are going
pretty well. Abrams is having a great time with Molly
and me. He listens to her when she's had enough of him
and he leaves her alone when she wants to be left

other puppies in daycare when I'm bathing and grooming
other dogs. Abrams is getting plenty of love and
attention, and I will make sure to hug him for you."

He's been having fun and making friends everywhere he
goes. He's getting so big and nice and dark in color.
Definitely the sweetest puppy ever."

"He is a great dog ... sweet tempered, calm,
confident, loves people, is doing great at Trailing training for
Search and Rescue.
He is a great dog, all business when we're trailing but
a wonderful family member when we're home---I have 7
grandchildren under the age of 6 and he is so good with
them. Our little local newspaper did a story on us and
the unit we train with..... Northwoods Press Nevis,
MN ---- he did a 0.5 mile trail that day ----the
trail was very contaminated---he "found" the subject
through all the distractions and jumped right into the
hider's snow "crater" and gave his indication after a
cue (we have just started working on his indication)---I
am very proud of my dog and most of the time I feel like
I'm basically the dope on the end of the rope! Have I
mentioned I love this guy?"
"We passed certification for advanced trailing---we can
now be deployed by law enforcement to trail missing
persons. We also certified in October
with the North America Police
Working Dog Association in advanced trailing.
Scout and I had our very first search last week for 2
missing boys....he worked his tail
off...we trailed for almost 3 miles...and after it
turned dark the boys walked out to the county road (they
were on the move and hiding from searchers as they
thought they were going to be in big trouble)...."
"Scout is an awesome dog and is highly respected
.......Sept. seminar of Kevin Kocher man trailing
instructor for national bloodhound institute and October
workshop of Jan Scofield master trainer for NAPWDA both
said I'd take
that dog anytime and I'd take you and Scout on a callout
in a heartbeat. Just so ya' know Scout is awesome A very
happy dog handler !"
"Hi ...wanted to let you know how proud I am of
Scout...he has such an awesome work ethic, he just kept
doing his nosework even with lots of distractions! I
love my dog!"
"He just finished running a half mile trail to find this
6th grade student....he did a sweet job...another 6th
grader was also hiding about 25 feet up the trail as a
decoy ...he approached her gave a quick sniff & tail wag
and proceed across to correct subject and sat in front
of her( his indication he found the correct person) I'm
so proud of him! Thanks again for such a good solid dog
with and awesome work ethic and a sweet temperament!"

"Valley is a dream dog. Valley did a nice job
yesterday doing some conformation. She's very easy to
work with. She is doing very well at tracking"
"(Valley was in Germany for training and titling)
Valley is very popular over there, as she loves
training. Valley will work for
anyone, as she enjoys the
training. She's upbeat and takes correction well. I loved hearing that he felt Valley was a great brood
bitch prospect, as there aren't many faults. He said it was no small
thing for her to get an SG rating and not the other working
dogs in the class. I get a kick, as the rest were all
German bred working dogs and the American bred working dog gets

That is also our goal with Varen. Our trainer at puppy school said that he is the smartest

to say that the dogs where a credit to the breed."

"Bella is 16 weeks and smarter than any
shepherd I have had. She learns things in probably 1/2
the time other dogs learn which always puts her way
ahead of the class. We go to socialization class on
Mondays and she loves to play with any dog -- big or
small. On Weds we go to obedience class and she will
learn something in class that we are suppose to work on
all week -- she really learns it in just a few
repetitions so I always have to figure out what the next
step is so she won't get bored. On Fridays we go to the
German Shepherd Club -- the trainer loves her
-- she said she would love to have her as her own! She
is really a very even temperament -- loves other dogs
and people! Today we met some young girls who asked if
they could pet her as they were petting her one of the
girls step on Bella's foot by accident and Bella just
moved it -- no snapping at the girl... Yeah Bella."
job Logan – your kids have your great temperament."
"I took her to the local pet store to buy her food and
we ran into Santa. I didn’t know how she would react to
such an odd looking person but she walked right up to
him to be petted. We also met up with a lady who had a
walker and was having a hard time getting through the
store. As other dogs were scared of her, Bella again
showed me her stuff by being just “normal” around the
walker and noise. Then the third thing happened in the
store and I knew what a great dog she is – her foot was
rolled over by a cart – she just pulled it out of the
way and moved her body – in a deliberate but not hurried
manner. When she really needs to step up and be a
“solid dog” she always does! THANKS to both of you for
the great dog she is – genetics play a big part of it!"
"She loves people and other dogs (sometimes too much –
she is a party girl). We started tracking classes and
of course Bella is a great tracker – the instructor
noticed things right away that she does already that
other dogs don’t do until the next level. I am still
learning a lot about tracking but I am sure Bella will
give me some slack until I catch up with her."
"Bella is mellowing out really nicely. When my niece
and nephew are over she loves to be with them but can
also go and be on her mat until the action starts. I
just love my sweetie."
"She also said “hi” to a baby on our walk the other day
and was so gentle. Yet when she sees my brothers she is
just a crazy hyper dog… She met an 8 week old Chihuahua
and was so gentle – even laid down when I asked her so
she wouldn’t scare it and yet can be crazy with the
yellow lab two houses down from my parents. What a
"Bella just has so many great genes – I really love her
so much and appreciate both Logan and Mea and what they
created. So far she is everything I dreamed of and
Bella is great with people and a very steady dog around
runners, bicycles and all other wheeled or fast objects
with the exception of rabbits. I just LOVE taking her
for walks because she is so good. We went “birding”
this spring and she was great – when I stop to look at
the bird in my binoculars, Bella will just hang out and
smell. She is really a joy!"
*from Sheila with Bella (Logan/Mea-Vienna)
loves the snow and is really built for it. He has as
much hair on his paws as he does around his head! Plus,
I have to give him credit and say that he only whacked a
couple of Christmas ornaments off of the Tree the entire
time it was up, so for a mischievous puppy, he did
really well. He is just so awesome! He is a bundle of fun
"Bear completed his first Teen Canine class. He did
very well and was awarded for having the fastest
"down". He also always had the best "relaxed state", so
the instructor used him as an example every time we had
to go over that particular instruction. At the end of
the training, the instructor set up a small obstacle
course, which Bear really enjoyed. He wasn't afraid of
anything and absolutely loved the tunnel. He makes us
laugh every day!"

"He is growing fast and is a very fast learner. Jake
loves it all and has been growing like a weed. He is
now potty broke, sits, downs, stays and the best part
heels and knows the boundaries of the place so the road
is not as much of a issue any more. Love that part. You can go down for the mail and he sits and waits for
you to come back up the driveway."
"You should have seen him at dog class Monday, we are in
advanced so most of the other 14 dogs are adults, we were
in a lay stay and I was across the room from him when
our instructor yelled out "Your Free" only 3 dogs
stayed and Jack was one of them. He is so much fun."
