Fiona is a ray of sunshine everywhere she goes. I got her as an 8 week old pup because of her pedigree and looks (a RED saddleback). I took a chance that she would have the temperament I hoped for, and I won the lotto! This girl has a deep connection with people, yet she is naturally neutral to new environmental noises and surfaces and new dogs. She’s confident and reliable at such a young age. Most dogs get there but with a lot of socialization and training. Her genetics are spot on for what I want in my breeding program. Of course she is fantastic with children. The bonus is that she has working capabilities. Her drives are more than what most show line German Shepherds have. This girl has just impressed me from day one. Fiona’s pedigree has nothing but import show lines with all ancestors having schutzhund (tracking, obedience, and protection) titles. Impressive!!! Fiona has achieved the AKC obedience titles Canine Good Citizen, Community Canine, and Canine Good Citizen (urban). Her hips have been certified through Pennhip (Pennhip tells a dog’s chances of ever getting hip dysplasia). Her hips and elbows have been preliminary rated as Good (hips) and Normal (elbows) through the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. Fiona also has been cleared for congenital cardiac disease through the OFA. She is clear of over 150 genetic diseases including the devastating Degenerative Myelopathy.
Daisy is a fun loving girl! Her hobbies include sticking her face in water when it’s trying to be poured on young trees, eating everything that doesn’t eat her first, going to Tractor Supply, watching Elizabeth practice cheerleading, searching hands for treats BEFORE strangers get to love on her, barking only when you’re not looking at her, and posing for the camera. Her natural temperament makes training or just spending time with her fun! She definitely got the best of both her parents. Different surfaces, sliding and loud doors, crowds of new people, people running past her, loud noises, and new places don’t scare her. Trainability and the right genetics is key. She’s a dream dog for sure!
Daisy has great Pennhip scores, OFA Prelim normal elbows, OFA Cardiac Normal, and is clear of over 200 genetic diseases including Degenerative Myelopathy.
Quincy is definitely one of the happiest dogs on the planet! She is a carbon copy of her mother, Julie. What sets Quincy apart is her natural abilities in protection work. She has a lot of natural defense that is needed to pick up when someone/something isn’t acting right. Pretty much, strong spidey senses. She’s a gorgeous bicolor that has eyes that pop and grab your attention. Her favorite hobbies include playing with children, swimming, and keeping her 8 year old mother young by aggravating her when she needs it. Quincy has fantastic Pennhip scores, Orthopedic Foundation for Animals Prelim Good Hips and Normal Elbows. She is clear of over 150 genetic diseases, and a carrier (has one copy, so she is not affected) for Degenerative Myelopathy.
Bailey is a gorgeous solid black beauty! Right now she’s Andy’s only female dog. He loves how she has all the traits and drives the original working German Shepherd was meant to have. She’s wonderful with children, and her personal protection training is always readily available when called upon. Peace of mind is a wonderful thing! Bailey has had her hips and elbows certified dysplasia free through the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals with scores of Good (Hips) and Normal (Elbows), is Orthopedic Foundation for Animals certified free of congenital heart defects, and is clear of over 150 genetic disease including the devastating Degenerative Myelopathy. She is trained in advanced obedience and personal protection, and she has earned her AKC’s Canine Good Citizen obedience title.
Joey was my pick out of several litters over several years. From the beginning he has had the looks and temperament I was looking for to replace the big shoes of his grandfather Max in my breeding program. He is a working/show cross with the attributes I want from each- the looks of the show line and the temperament/drives of the working line. As with all of our dogs, how he acts with children is extremely important. How he is with our young daughter has completed the whole Joey package. We have had 17 dogs Pennhip’d over the years and Joey has scored the highest! He has Orthopedic Foundation for Animals Prelim Good Hips and Normal Elbows. He is also clear of over 150 genetic diseases including Degenerative Myelopathy.
Bear Bear’s name suits him because he has a nice broad bear-like head. He’s a stocky boy like his dad. Both his parents are schutzhund titled imports from Europe. His dad was the 2013 DVG Champion-wow! His pedigree is impressive and he has the temperament and all the drives of a true working dog. What is most impressive about Bear though is how rowdy he is with all of us but how gentle he has always been with my disabled 9 year old sister. He has a soft spot for kids in general, just like his mother that we imported from the Czech Republic. Bear belongs to my dad and lives next to us. My dad is retired and works outside a lot on his 30 acres with Bear right by his side. Bear has 3 ponds he loves swimming in, around a hundred trees that drops him sticks to play with, a 9 year old and a 1 year old he absolutely adores, and has a wonderful life. We do sometimes use Bear for breeding. He is available to select outside females as well. Bear has achieved 3 AKC obedience titles: Canine Good Citizen, Community Canine, and Canine Good Citizen-Urban. He has fantastic Pennhip scores (Pennhip tells a dog’s chances of ever getting hip dysplasia), Orthopedic Foundation for Animals certified Elbow dysplasia free, OFA Cardiac Normal, and is clear of over 150 genetic diseases including the devastating Degenerative Myelopathy.
