Scales Arizona German Shepherds is owned by Stacy J. Speer & Kathy Zmudzinski. We have been raising German Shepherds since 1987 when we bought our first German Shepherd. We bred our first shepherd in 1991 which produced Scales Arizona Cherie Amore, CGC, C.D. In 1992, we teamed with our co-owners/co-breeders, Covy-Tucker Hill Kennels who sold us our  first show puppy at five months old. That puppy was SEL CH Covy-Tucker Hill Rem Sendaria, CGC, TC. 

Since then we have enjoyed many successes with our animals.  Kathy is an active  volunteer with the Cochise County Search and Rescue.  Her first mission with her Search and Rescue dog, Griffin von Challenger, B resulted in Griffin finding a 2 year old boy lost in a corn field for 17 hours.  Kathy has been written up several times in local papers with her Search and Rescue dogs and visits local schools to talk to elementary children.  The highlight of her visits are when several children hide and Kathy demonstrates her dog's tracking abilities by finding the hidden child. 

Stacy is an avid enthusiast of the AKC conformation and obedience show ring.  After being behind the scenes as the trainer/conditioner of our dogs, she is now stepping into the show ring as a handler.  She was enjoyed success with showing her first dog as a handler, CH Covy-Tucker Hill Fatal Beauty.  Since then we have shown and bred many Champion dogs that can be viewed on Our Dog page. 

For the last several years we have been extremely active in the world of Schutzhund and the German Shepherd Dog Club of America - Working Dog Association.  We have been blessed with many V titles with our dogs as well as performance titles especially with our foundation stud dog, V Bo vom Freese Land, SchH3, KKL1.  Bo now has beautiful progeny with titles of their own.  Please check out our German line dogs that can be viewed on the Our Dog page.

We believe in breeding the total German Shepherd Dog . Our breeding and training covers the beauty and many talents of the German Shepherd to include; Conformation, Temperament, and Obedience. 

We only breed 1 or 2 litters a year and all dogs that we breed are of sound temperament, and are certified free of hip and elbow displaysia by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA). 

Our home and kennel is located on 40 acres in the southeast corner of Arizona nestled between the Huachua and Mule Mountains. We are only a 30 minute drive from the historic town of Tombstone.
