Our Story

Spartan Shepherds is owned by April Jolley, single mama to 6 of the best kids in the world!
My family came up the Oregon Trail to settle in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley of Montana in the 1800s and built the family homestead.  Ever since we have raised cattle, horses, various other livestock, and farmed.  Because of this, I grew up working with animals, understanding the care of animals, and loving them.  We currently have a small ranch complete with cattle, horses, chickens, 4-H projects, cats, and the resident deer.
My family still lives on and proudly operates the family homestead many generations later. 
Every of our pups is raised right along with our kids, and our menagerie of animals.  You can be sure your new puppy will be accustomed to a lot of different sights and sounds! 
I have lived with and around German Shepherds all my life, and I believe there is no more well-rounded canine that a person could own.  Spartan was conceived in 2010, following a home invasion that put our family in extreme danger.  I purchased our first stud, Blitz, shortly thereafter.  He was large, dark, and very intimidating, but had a lover's soul and bonded to each member of the family tightly.  We knew we had found a dog that would spend his life for his family, and we would do the same.  Blitz turned heads wherever he went, and with the purchase of our first dam, Taija, Spartan Shepherds was born.  
Our time since has been spent researching, developing, importing, and breeding some of the highest quality bloodlines you will see in the world.  Our goal has been simple: bring the highest quality shepherds to your backyard.  At Spartan, you will discover the best.
