“Sunshine Shepherds has been amazing to work with. They made sure that we got the right puppy with the right temperament for our family. We’ve had Gaia for nearly 4 years now and to this day I can still ask questions
and for advice. We didn’t just get
an amazing dog from Sunshine
Shepherds, we got our fourth
baby that was perfectly picked
for our pack.”

Hi! The owners of 3Colors & Sunshine Shepherds are us; Sunshine, Emily, and Jessica. 

Jessica has shown, bred, & Hunted Treeing Walker Coonhounds Since 2002. She is very knowledgeable in her breed and does Breeders Educations to teach people about the Walkers. She owns some of the Top Ten walkers in AKC and UKC and has appeared on AKC TV with her Walker, Brandy. 

Sunshine has been breeding German Shepherds for over 20 years. She began showing 2.5 years ago. With the help of Jessica, we have come farther in our show career than we ever would have imagined. Showing has allowed us to become even more knowledgeable in our breed, as well as many others.

Emily is 17 years old and the number one Junior Handler in UKC. She co-owns  and shows the #1 German Shepherd and #1 Herding dog in UKC with Jessica. They have multiple Best in Shows & Reserve Best in Shows. This dog (GrizLee) has really helped further Emily’s career as a dog handler.

My handsome young man Gunner, My Pup from Sunshine shepherds. He always receives comments on his coat, temperament, his health. Sunshine has always been available for any questions I may have. Always like the pictures with the new puppies. Thank you for your support.
