A little about our ranch…The Meadows at Lake Norman (the name of our Kennel is Von Wiese which means “the meadows” in German) began in 1996 as a simple residence/ranch that slowly, after the first 5 years, began to accumulate a few animals. In the beginning, just 2 dogs and 4 goats (besides the human residents) called this “home”. But now, long after the 2 dogs and 4 goats have left this realm, the Meadows is now “home” to many animals including Horses, Llamas, Scottish Highland Cattle, Bactrian Camels, Miniature Donkeys, Yaks, Zebra, Gemsbok, Eland, Black Buck, Wallaroos, various types of Goats, Chickens, Peacocks, Swans, Dogs, Cats, Geese, Ducks, a Pony and what ever else decides to move to our ranch. We sell many of the offspring once they are old enough and sometimes rotate out our adult stock, so check out our pages to see what animals we have available for sale. Yak and Goat breeding pairs are also available. Sorry, the human children are NOT for sale (although the thought HAS crossed our minds). In addition, we usually have fresh organic eggs and various produce (depending on the time of year) available for sale. Enjoy our site and leave us a message on our blog.

“Wiese” is the German word meaning “Meadow”, thus our name. This particular site, Top German Shepherds, is all about our incredible line of all black German Shepherd dogs stemming from the world famous all black German Shepherd V Paska vom Salztalblick. We exclusively breed the Paska line although our dogs have the other world famous lines in them as well such as Troll von der bosen Nachbarschaft, Olex de Valsory and Nick vom Heiligenbösch. However, our focus is to reproduce the perfect “Paska” dog and actually improve on the legacy of this all time incredible all black Top German Shepherd.
