About Us

Located just east of the Dallas/ Fort Worth, Texas metroplex, Giant German Shepherds was founded by Mrs. Redwine, after her father returned home from World War II with his partner and their future family dog, Major.

Mrs. Redwine and her family bred, raised, and trained German Shepherds for over 60 years, holding true to the original breed characteristics noticed as far back as 1899. In 2021, Mrs. Redwine passed ownership of Giant German Shepherds to our family.

My name is Kristi Hicks and our family’s shared hope on our 80 acre Giant German Shepherd’s Ranch is to continue the legacy of the true, original, straight backed, AKC Registered, Working-Line, Giant German Shepherd Dogs. I am excited to continue on this journey, and through my passion for the true German Shepherd characteristics, my integrity as a breeder, and respect for both animal and owner, I hope to produce the highest quality companion, family, guardian, service, or working line Straight backed Giant German Shepherd dogs that you can find .

While there are many opinions of what a German Shepherd’s characteristics should be, please check our Breed Info page where we share a brief history of the breed, and characteristics we breed for and avoid.
