Meet Our Breeders
Lois Schwarz and her daughter, Amey, breed American Alsatian™ dogs. Jennifer and Jay Stoeckl breed American Dirus™ dogs for the Dire Wolf Project. In order to keep the Dire Wolf Project free from unethical breeders out to line their pockets with gold based on the name and reputation of our dogs, strict ethics and adherence to our breeding standards are necessary before anyone is approved for certified breeding status.
