About Us

Been around the block for a while...

Being an AKC preferred breeder, our kennel is inspected by an AKC official which includes safe and sanitary housing, as well as dna submissions, microchip identifications, and insurmountable paperwork in order.  We have been a preferred breeder for years.  

Family Venture

27 years ago I purchased my first GSD, 2 years later I had my first litter of GSD.   Our twins Alicia and Adam were about 2 at the time we got our first GSD and we were enamored by the breed itself.

A close friend guided me through the initial stages of the ins and outs of breeding and poof we were off and running.  My initial kennel name was Wag-A-Lot (self explanatory) which was latter changed to K9-Pines to depict a more serious name.  

 Jason, the head of the house, is a former Police Officer and former State and Federal Corrections Officer;  We just opened a pizza & wing restaurant in Saluda, known as Saluda Whistle Stop Pizza & Wings.

The 'Twins', Alicia and Adam grew up working, training, teaching and helping to tend to various dogs in the kennel and have a natural love for animals.  Sadly Adam was killed in the summer of 2104.  You can read the details here: http://www.blueridgenow.com/article/20140725/ARTICLES/140729931/1151?Title=Driver-charged-in-fatal-East-Flat-Rock-vehicle-crash

Alicia is now a Deputy (following Jasons foot steps) and still owns the first GSD she was gifted shortly before her first daughter was born.

Very planned, our family grew by 2 more, Hunter, then Michael both teenagers now, and help out both at the Pizza shop and the kennel.  Both learning responsibility and how to be able to run successful business's.  Michael still enjoys playing with puppies and Hunter is the analytical making sure things are done right.  

Both are amazing boys and I am very proud of them both.
