All my puppies are placed as pets only, on what is classified by the AKC as "Limited Registration." This means they can participate in Obedience Trials, Field Trials, Endurance Tests, Agility Trials, Earth Dog Tests or Tracking Trials but are NOT eligible to enter Conformation Shows or be used in BREEDING.
Questionnaire For a Vom Haus Edinburgh German Shepherd Puppy. To some, this screening process may seem intrusive, but please know this is only for the benefit of the puppy and the potential buyer. As a responsible breeder, it is my duty to screen potential buyers to ensure that the puppies that I have worked so hard to breed and raise will enter into a home where they are loved and cared for. You should also be aware of the positive and negative characteristics of the "German Shepherd Breed" They are not for everyone. They need much attention, early socialization love, and firm guidance as they grow. I don't want my puppies to end up in a rescue or dog pound. This is a 10 year plus challenging commitment.
Welcome to Vom Haus Edinburgh German Shepherds
Our Guest Book
3 weeks ago I came across your webpage in my quest to find a life mate for my 3 year old German Shepherd Diesel. We had put our 12 year old lab down two weeks prior. Your page and the information you provided on your majestic and noble Sires, Dams and puppies was so knowledgeable and the most qualified site I have come across. The superb quality of your dogs is astounding! I immediately felt comfortable that you were the breeder for me. Especially when I came across the questionnaire you ask your possible new parents of your puppies to fill out. That solidifies you are not just out to give them to anyone and that you truly care where your animals are placed. Another point for the superb quality you offer. In the short time we have been in contact I feel like i've known you a lifetime. You are a very kind, caring individual with exceptional qualities. I would and will highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a top notch German Shepherd. This should be your first and last stop if you are looking for a high quality beautiful puppy to add to your family, you will not find a better breeder in my mind and I've done ALOT of searching! Thank you again Rose, and I will be looking forward to your next litter!
I just wanted to thank you for all your help in the process of getting our new puppy! Although we were unable to get a new puppy from you, we got great contact from you! I wish everyone was so helpful! This has been quite the process with ups and downs after losing our last shepherd, you made it feel easy. We never had any doubt about how much you care about these dogs, which was very important to us.Thanks again, for everything you have done for us, good luck in the future you have a great thing going!

I told everyone how wonderful you were in helping me find another breeder after Indee lost her pups. A friend of mine is looking to get a German Shepherd down the road and I have already given her your information. You are a wonderful person Rose and obviously have an extreme love for your dogs...who better to get a puppy from. Thank you again and please give Indee a hug for me.
~Jo Shaw Lake Mills, WI - March 3, 2009
Words cannot describe what an amazing breeder and woman Rose is. Even through emails, the amount of love and pride she has for her dogs and the puppies they produce, is amazing. Even though Indee lost the litter and I was not able to adopt my puppy. I would recommend her to ANYONE who was looking for an amazing German Shepherd puppy and an amazing breeder to go along with it (which really counts!). This is a woman who loves what she does and really loves her dogs. Thank you so much Rose, for all you have done. I hope that somewhere down the road I will be able to bring home one of your amazing puppies.

Thank you so much for letting my family and myself into your home today to view your exceptional litter of german shepherd pups. We could not stop discussing how we want to be put on your waiting list for a puppy, out of your next litter, as soon as possible. Please consider this letter formal communication that we should be on your waiting list. Would you like me to send any kind of a deposit now? Your dogs are so exquisite and after speaking to your past customers as references, we are dedicated to locking in our position on your list. The home environment for your puppies is outstanding. In many other breeders homes, the puppies are not kept close enough to the human family and put off to much. I love how your puppies are always with you and their mother and so happy, healthy, and socially well adjusted. I look forward to hearing from you and for working with you in years to come.
Sincerely, June M. Kubina Janesville, WI Wednesday December 31, 2008
I want you to know that both David and I still feel that you are our first choice in a breeder. We fully intend on coming back to you when it becomes time for another puppy. We appreciated the personal care and helpful information you gave to us and further educated us on the German Shepherd breed. We loved that you had the questionnaire and will not give your puppies to just any home. You were so honest with the whole deposit and contract situation, I am not sure we would find anyone else as honorable as you; taking so much time answering so many questions. We hope to keep in touch,
Beth & David - Tuesday December 2, 2008
From the moment I first contacted you, I could tell you were a breeder with integrity, kindness, and a genuine love for German Shepherds. Having previously worked for a breeder, we were specific about what we wanted. We were searching for a "Lasso" prodigy when we came upon you, and we could not be happier that we found you! Since the beginning of this process, you've become much more than our "breeder"... you've become our friend. We are over the moon with excitement about our newest addition, can't wait to bring him home, and cannot thank you enough for the wonderful experience! Much Love,

You are truly a breeder that cares about GSD. when I had emailed you with a concern you answered me without even purchasing a puppy from you, that says allot about you. I'm very thankful for all your advise. I didn't even get any advise from the breeder I purchased the pup from. So for me I would say you have a BIG heart and love what you do. You also care where your puppies are going. I wish I would have found you as a breeder because knowing what I know now I would have purchased a puppy from you.

Thank you for your visit today, I enjoyed sharing information with you.... your knowledge was very helpful and your dogs are beautiful, I only wish I had called before they had all been sold. Your love for this breed is surely evident. I am glad my husband and I could spend time with you, we learned a great deal. We have visited many breeders in our area and surrounding areas,have left in total disappointment due to the lack of care given to their animals. We will defiantly be in touch for your next litter in August, thanks so much for our your time. -

Phil and I want to thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to meet with us. We were very impressed with your operation and the time and love you put into it. We'd certainly be interested in a female from your Fall 2006 litter if one is available. Good luck with your move!

Ray and I would like to take a few moments to thank you for taking the time out of your busy Sunday evening, to help us with the emergency we had with our new GS puppy, sitting up late to find out how she turned out, and for your follow up calls that followed. Our Christa is well on the way to recovery. Your sincere compassion for the well-being of our puppy was greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

I own one of Rose's puppies from her latest litter (Ussa X Admiral}. I looked at over 30 breeders, spoke to some on the phone,thru e-mail and looking at websites and I often found that I either didn't like the breeder or I didn't like what they had to offer. I wanted the "Whole Package". A breeder with good lines pedigree), trustworthy and honest, patient (since I had a million questions),early socialization of the puppies,etc... Rose exceeded my expectations. She is not only a wonderful breeder but person as well. She is someone I consider a friend and has always been there for me whenever I have a question. I would not hesitate to get another dog from her or refer her to anyone. P.S.We like Rose so much we named our puppy after her "Enya Rose" :O)

My wife and I got a Admiral puppy shortly after my German Shepherd had past away from cancer. We named here Akela and she is a awesome puppy very smart and very good temperament and is beautiful in color. I talked to Rose on the phone for about two hours one night about puppys that she has seen come from Admiral and we can not be more happy with Akela. Rose my wife and I both thank you in helping us with the decision on getting Akela.

Rose rocks my socks! I was really nervous about getting a puppy, especially getting (sorry to say) but "ripped off" and I wanted to be sure I was getting a good dog...all dogs have their up and downs but what I mean is that no "puppy mill or puppy factory" instances were taking place. Rose talked to me about German Shepherd dogs for almost an hour when I called to inquire..She made it clear that she was a small breeder and that all she really wanted for the German Shepherd breed was to keep bettering it and bettering it.. It was amazing the knowledge she had. Unfortunately, I was unable to purchase the puppy.. I did not have the correct funds to give her the home she needed. Even though I'd backed out...Rose kept her arms wide open and offered to come to her again when the right time had come for me to get a puppy. I would definitely recommend her and would definitely call her a friend... I thank you Rose, and will come soon to purchase a puppy. And trust me, I simply cannot wait for that day to Come! :) Thanks for everything! Emilie.

The phrase of "crossing paths" can be a bit overused these days, but I have to use it when speaking about Rose. I am so very grateful to have crossed the path of Rose. After the loss of our beloved shepherd, Edgar, we knew finding another companion would be hard as Edgar was so well loved. We even received dozens of sympathy cards for him. We searched sooooooo many websites for a shepherd, always left without the feeling that the priority was a family pet. Then we found Vom Haus Edinburgh's site and immediately felt like we had found a kindred spirit in Rose. Her dogs certainly are incredible with their heritage, but more importantly for us, they all seemed so family friendly. Talking with Rose on the phone confirmed all of our good vibes. This woman loves her animals and makes sure that they find families who will love them just as much. Rose was so sympathetic to our loss, and before I knew it, a half hour on the phone sped by as we arranged to adopt one of her latest puppies. We still have a couple of weeks to go before we can bring our "Guthrie" home, but Rose has been so diligent in sending us pics and getting our baby used to his name. I can just picture all these puppies romping in her kitchen and receiving all her love and German Shepherd insightful training. I am grateful to Rose for all she does for the breed and for all she does for us humans about to add her pups to our families. Feel free to contact me later for comments after our baby comes home with us; and certainly find Rose if you are craving the world's best dogs, German Shepherds. She is a gift!

Thank you, Rose, for your time and advice. Your sight has loads of valuable information for anyone considering adding a German Shepherd to their family. It is obvious you have a true passion and love of the breed.

In our search for a new puppy, I found Rose's sight. The sight is not only engaging and helpful; but all of my interaction with Rose has been wonderful! I was very impressed with Rose's help in finding the perfect German Shepherd for our family dog. I haven't purchased a puppy yet but plan to in the near future. Thank you Rose for all of your advice.

I have been around shepherds for a long time, My cousin introduced me to them many years ago. Since then our shepherd passed away a couple of years ago and to be very honest the house hasn't been the same, and we are looking for some great dog to take her place and share life with. (Sheeba can't be replaced but a different dog would ease the pain) Your site is really great and thank you for putting it up for others to see too!

Well to begin rose is my aunt so automatically people will think "biast" but truthfully ive never met a person that has so much passion for dogs especially German shepherds whenever there's a question I have about dogs as I have thought of at times of getting one, she was the person to ask. sometimes I think she takes her dogs to seriously (laughing out loud). The site is awesome I totally like it, first time ive seen it today layed out nicely and helps people out in the decision making process in my opinion. job well done aunt rosey keep up the good work.

Bill and I want to thank you for all your time and expert advice after our purchase of Charley. Charley has truly become a beloved member of our family in just a few short weeks. Your understanding, compassion and knowledge have been a great help in this most wonderful transition in our life. When we had our little emergency and didn't know where to turn, your words and wisdom were what got us through and we can never thank you enough. If we ever consider another adoption or know of anyone who is considering it, you will definitely be our first recommendation. Thank you for being there.

Just a quick note about the pup I purchased from Rose. I found Vom Haus Edinburgh to be very professional when I first contacted her about purchasing a pup, and throughout the entire purchase. Her care and love for her dogs impressed me. After I checked out other breeders I was compelled to contact them. I could adopt (purchase) my new pup into my home. I know it's important to all of you who are considering bringing one of her puppies into your home so that you know how other people feel about their experience. Thank you, Rose. I know if I have concerns or questions I can call you for advice. I love my puppy...she is just beautiful.So healthy looking and alert. With Warm Regards -

I love rose's dogs I help keep them happy and play with them every night. Hannah gives me kisses but loves her babies a whole bunch. rose takes good care of all her dogs and feedsHannah real meat not dog food. I like to play with the puppies and keep them busy and teach them tricks and how to sit. I would love to keep them all but know that I cant because we already have 2 dogs and 2 cats at our house. But.......... I know I can always play with all of rose's puppies!!!! Savana Stoughton , WI USA - Wednesday, 2/22/06, 6:14 PM ~Rose~Jilayne Paley - Your website is wonderful!

I have been a neighbor of Rose's for the last 6+ years and Ihave seen and heard her working with her dogs and puppies.You can tell that she takes pride in what she has done.She is a HONEST,LOVING and CARING breeder. The timeshe spends with her dogs and puppies is wonderful. I wouldnot get a dog from any breeder other than her not becauseshe is my neighbor and friend but because I have seen the loveand caring that she puts into her animals. And that is very important. Please check her out it is well worth it. You will NOT be disappointed.

I just spoke with Ms. Sweeney on the phone. I called withquestions about possibly getting a puppy. I recently had gottena new GSD puppy from another breeder and was consideringa playmate for her. I was very impressed with Ms. Sweeney'sknowledge of the GSD breed and her compassion for the breedas well. She was very willing to give me advice for my puppy at homeand offered to help at anytime with puppy issues as they comeup this after we decided to wait on a playmate at this time. I amvery impressed with her dedication. I will definitely look to heror my future puppy and truly appreciate her Love and devotionto the GSD breed. Thanks for all the great info.!
