For additional information regarding former LB/LBIT's that have chosen to betray the ISSR and join the sliver camp, please view Tina's detailed Who's Who article!

This list is subject to change!

We recommend that anyone interested in possibly starting a Shiloh Shepherd™ breeding program in the future take the time to read the ISSR, Inc. Rules and Regulations as well as the new ISSR, Inc. Requirements for Licensed Breeders

Please note: The ISSR (International Shiloh Shepherd™ Registry) in no way endorses these breeders, makes no claims of, nor is responsible for, any breeder/client relationship or contracts, written or verbal, which arise from contact made through this site.


Before purchasing a Shiloh Shepherd™, please be sure that the entire litter is ISSR registered and that you will receive official "ISSR" papers.

The ISSR, Inc. Licensed Breeders (listed above) are the only ones that have earned the right to represent their dogs as Shiloh Shepherds™ (using that name with  permission granted by Tina Barber, common law owner of that kennel name). Any one else attempting to represent their GSD mix as a Shiloh Shepherd™ is nothing more then an Oxymoron. Be sure to study Tina Barber's whos who.

Please note: Trademarks
Anyone willfully using the name Shiloh ShepherdsTM to represent their non-ISSR (illegitimate) dogs will be properly dealt with in due time!

UPDATE 10/27/04

On September 29th we were informed that a small group of oxymorons had applied to the UKC for recognition of the *Shiloh Shepherd* as a UKC breed. We immediately replied with a LETTER TO THE UKC  and within days our members had started writing letters  and signing a  Petition asking the UKC to reject the appllication!!  Full details were shared on our private & public forums.  On October 21st we were pleased to announce that we had received confirmation from Mr. Cavanaugh, the UKC president, that the applicants were no longer being considered!  We would also like to thank all of the other breed clubs for their strong support during our plight, and of course all of the  LB's that stood strong to protect the future welfare of our breed!! Please take a few minutes to read the full details  regarding this entire event!

Shiloh Shepherd Dog Club of America, Inc. Response to the UKC


UPDATE 3/22/11

This year we are planning to apply for full AKC recognition! More of our dogs are again being shown - and earning their titles!! Our club is growing by leaps and bounds and we are expanding our chapter  events from coast to coast!!! The frauds are fading out but still trying to sell fake puppies, so BEWARE!! Don't waste your money on a wannabee - get the REAL DEAL!!
