New Member from N.C.
First off I would like to say that I have enjoyed surfing around and checking out the site. I am a fulltime police officer and former police canine handler. I handled 3 police canines over my career. I have handled and assisted with training these dogs since 1996 and still assist with training and consultations on training, handler selection, team reviews, etc. My last canine is a male GSD that was called "K-9 Lagos" though not his registered name. He was imported from Budapest. He is dually registered in Europe and recently received his foreign registration with AKC.
It has been a dream of mine to breed my male to continue his strong working lines, which I have began recently. I could not breed Lagos as long as he was working, so I had to wait until his retirement. I purchased a beautiful AKC registered female early this year after meeting the owner and the dog and deciding that she would be a good fit. She has the same temperament and high prey drive that I was looking for, as well as beautiful markings.
I recently bred the pair and have the "days old" pups here now. She had a small litter (3) which the veterinarian believes is because of my male's age. I am glad that I got to breed him and get a pup off of him before he was too old to stud.
