I learned at a
young age that how you start something can be a very good way to determine how
it will end. The thing that impressed me about Guardian Angel Shepherds is that
they start with top Sires and Dams. When my wife and I went to look at the pups
the first thing we saw were the mom and dad, and honestly after seeing them I
was ready to pay for our pup without even looking! But of course we looked at
the two pups and got Aragorn “Stryder” Vom Angelhaus. Stryder and I work for
the Sedgwick County Search and Rescue team. This is one of the main reasons I
was looking for a high quality, reputable breeder, and I am so glad that we
found Laurie Hein and her Guardian Angels.
and Rescue dogs are held to a very high standard by the organization and the public.
Having this in mind, a great breeder will put together the best genetics,
translating into good temperament, smart, and loyal dogs. Guardian Angel
Shepherds does this all.
Now six months later, I have not been wrong. Stryder has passed his CGC test at
five months old, several temperament tests and has made very impressive
progress with our SAR (Search And Rescue) team. We have also had another
addition to our family with our first son! Stryder definitely sees him as his
little brother. He is so patient with little Loren pulling on his tail, hair,
and face. Stryder is loving, protective and loyal.
If you are thinking of purchasing a pup, I can save you some
time I have done extensive research and I know you will also find that Guardian
Angel Shepherds to be only of the best quality.

I've gotten to personally know Laurie and Dan. They are wonderful people that have wonderful dogs. I adopted Miss Jada from them and I'm getting a puppy from them too very soon. These dogs are made up of high quality, high standards, and most of all, lots of love and care. Good job Laurie and Dan.

Moses and Joana
My shepherd passed away in 2011 and we had been mulling over
the idea of getting another one. I was hesitant because we had some health
issues with him (weak hips and skin allergies). We also have young children (5
and 7). I looked into breeders in the area and really there was just one that
stood out to us: Guardian Angel Shepherds. Laurie and Dan's dogs are amazing. I
originally planned to go visit and meet with them, but once we got there I
couldn't leave without a dog! Moses is 3.5 months old now and he is super smart
and really funny. He is great with the kids, too. To top it off, they were
retiring Moses' mom, Joana, from breeding (a year earlier than most breeders
do), and wanted to get her into a good home. We agreed to take her on a trial
basis, and now we have two FANTASTIC dogs. It could not have worked out
better!!! So glad to have worked with Guardian Angel German Shepherds!!!

I had the pleasure of meeting Dan and Laurie and 3 beautiful,
even tempered GS's in person. What I saw was a wonderful pack leader with
wonderful dogs. I have been invited to come and visit the kennel, train with
her pack, and get a pup when the time is right for my pack. I can honestly say
without a doubt that GA is a wonderful kennel that puts the love first before
any breeding or titles.
I have been wanting for a Guardian Angel Shepherd since
I met Baron, Eikon, and Knight. The right time finally came. Braven's yellow
girl aka Blue's Jadzai vom Angelhaus (Zia) is wonderful!!! Laurie, thank you
for a beautiful girl. I can't wait to see what she does!

The day I dialed Guardian Angel German Shepherds’ phone
number has changed my life more than I could possibly imagine! I wanted to get a
GSD for 2 years, finally found one (do not want to name that breeder), but the
breeder was really hard to deal with. I was quite heart broken and then my
friend gave me this phone #. I made a phone call and 40 minutes later I was on
my way to meet my wonderful Jade Kai vom Angelhaus and her breeder Laurie.
Laurie was friendly, welcoming and I could immediately tell how much she loves
her dogs. I was very impressed how well her dogs behaved and how clean they
were kept. GSDs are great dogs, but getting one from the right breeder makes a
world of difference! My Kai was 9 weeks old when I brought her home. I had her
potty trained within 3 days. Kai has no health issues or behavior problems. She
is an inside dog, went through teething without destroying any of my things and
is very obedient. She is intelligent, beautiful, level headed and gentle. Kai
is training to be a search and rescue dog and everyone loves her. If I were to
ever buy another dog it would have to be a Guardian Angel dog. I highly
recommend Guardian Angel German Shepherds!

We are the proud owners of two Guardian Angels GSDs. Both
dogs are stable, healthy and wonderful companions. We toured the kennels before
the purchase of our first, and worked with Laurie on the selection of the
second from upcoming litters. Wonderful dogs, wonderful people.
Kevin and Michelle Hopkins of Wichita, KS
Guardian Angel shepherds are some of the most beautiful
shepherds around. Before we bought our Brandy we visited Laurie and her kennels
and I cannot express how impressed we were. Laurie loves all of her shepherds
and it shows. The time she puts into having quality puppies far exceeds anything
I have seen. We love Brandy and are glad we found Laurie and her family, they
have been a blessing to us!

Zeek and Nikki
I would highly recommend Guardian Angel German Shepherds. I
purchased one puppy and am so impressed with her shepherds and how she cares
for them. Not too many breeders like Laurie!
Donna Spradlin of Otway, OH
Laurie and Dan welcomed us in their home to visit before we
made a decision if a GSD was right for our family. We were invited to come back
as often as needed. Absolutely love our pup we got. He has stolen my heart. We
will be getting our next one at the end of this year. Wonderful breeders.
Kevin and Amy Rodgers of Mount Hope, KS
My wife and I are very pleased with our experience with
Guardian Angel German Shepherds. Dan and
Laurie handled all of the shipping arrangements, and made the process of
acquiring our Darla as seamless and stress free as possible. They remain in touch and are both friends and
a trusted, knowledgeable GSD resource. Our Darla is a healthy, beautiful,
spirited, and intelligent girl who will be a beloved member of our family for
many years to come! Thank you, Laurie
and Dan, for everything!

My daughter and I began searching for German Shepherds in
April of 2012. On a weekend trip to
Wichita we found Guardian Angel German Shepherds. I called Laurie to see if we could come see
the dogs and she was readily available to meet with us. When we arrived we immediately feel in love
with Baron and we found out that Joana was pregnant from Baron. We put a deposit down the next day for the
pick of the female litter. Laurie kept
in constant contact with us letting us know how Jo was progressing. Laurie knew that we wanted a family pet as
well as one with drive that could handle search and rescue work. Rayne was born in June and we were able to
bring her home the last weekend of July.
Now raising a puppy with high drive was not as easy as I had
expected. There were many calls to
Laurie asking questions and I can assure you that she was with us every step of
the way. Within a couple of months we
were past the hard part and on to the fun!!!
Rayne is a absolutely beautiful German Shepherd and has a heart of
gold. I took her to the vet in December
with a cough and within 5 minutes of meeting Rayne the vet asked if he could
buy her from me. Of course we said no
and he said he has a friend who trains dogs for avalanche searches and she
would be the perfect dog. He told me not
to let her abilities go to waste and to please get her involved in search and
rescue. On March 27, 2013 Rayne was
officially accepted to start training with KSARDA. I would tell anyone to make sure they check
out Guardian Angel German Shepherds when looking for a puppy. You can check with as many breeders as you
like and go see the animals but I can promise you that you will come back to
get your puppy from Guardian Angel German Shepherds.
Mike and Kim Gage of Kansas City, KS
Guardian Angel German Shepherds are
the best. Laurie, Dan and family are
caring, compassionate people who really strive to breed the best of the
best. You won’t find a more caring,
personable, and reputable breeder. The
care and love that goes into their german shepherd family members is
amazing. And that’s what their dogs are;
They start with health tested and
certified sires and dams. Their dogs
train and test for canine good citizen among many other achievements. They strive to improve the breed and produce
the best german shepherds out there. A
lot of times they keep in touch with the dogs and their families even after
adoption, and are very friendly and helpful.
They are very responsible breeders.
I adopted Odin “Loki” Vom Angelhaus
in Feb 2014. It was the best decision
I’ve made in a long time. I had recently
lost my female shepherds, and Loki just called to me. Laurie gave me a chance on him, and I’m so
thankful she did. Not only did it do my
heart some good, it did his as well.
I’ve since become very good friends with Laurie and Dan and the entire
Guardian Angels family. Loki and I visit
them frequently, as well as train and compete together with them.
I can’t wait to get another pup
from Guardian Angels, and highly recommend them.

Laurie and Dan Hein of Guardian Angels German Shepherds come very hightly recommended. I am elated with my two German Shepherd pups I purchased from them. They both have excellent bloodlines and I am pleased to know they are bred from high quality. Presercing, respecting, and love for the German Shepherd breed is apparently a focus at Guardian Angel GS. Laurie is a pleasure to work with and always communicates in a timely manner!! The results of her breeding program have fiven me two incredible companions with beauty and temperament to match. Thanks to both Laurie and Dan for their dedication to their extended fur family members and the German Shepherd breed.
