the sire is V Ford Helena Golden Haus
V and IPO 3 , with the usual GSD show line pedigree
The dam shares her pedigree with Yerick vom Grunenfeld
I like Zarry Antverpa .
It is not that difficult to follow The Zarry sire brings in some good connections to old herding through Bonnie Clausberg, in addition to solid temperament and work-loving Bernd Lierberg through Golf Ritterberg -- (MENTOR Iris ) & Pele haus Himpel and Ingo through Jeff Flamings Sand , great herding through Bert haus Knufken , more Bernd through Grand Himpel, Valet Busecker Schloss, more herding from Enno Beilstein and Racker these two bringing in Ilse and Pirol Kirschental Carmen vom Buchenrangen
and that is the dam's sire Zarry (who I like)
On the dam's side , Gildo, Drigon , Bernd and Marko,
I think there is enough material for stability on the dam -- especially for these purposes "Now this pup is mainly just going to be a companion dog/hiking partner/unofficial service/helper dog possibly for some health issues I have"
Grill the breeder and ask alll sorts of questions about the dam -- her sociability, her coping skills, any sensitivities , noise , weather , motion , surfaces, does she adapt to conditions , does she do well - meaning an easy keeper for health. I would think she would be good .
Ask how they are raised , how they are fed , ask for a referal to one of her previous pups (would this be Grunenfeld?)
See if you can speak to Yeriks owner since this is the genetic combination of the pup in questions dam -- and here is a progeny of Yerick which sort of flips the show line on to the dam portion http://www.pedigreedatabase.com/dog.html?id=689581
, which is certainly a very good looking dog ! -- myself , I prefer a stronger dam line and the show male on top line as is the case in the pup in question sired by Ford.
It looks like a kennel attempting a balance with structure and temperament .
is this litter born ?
