Exclamation Artica German Shepherds

Hi All,

I have a white german shepherd from Artica Kennels in Canada. I am considering breeding my dog and have heard that Artica Kennel is no longer in business. My dog was born on Oct. 20, 2005. Her parent sire is Artica's Corona and parent dam is Artica's Tango. I would like to find out more about my dogs siblings amd would like to find a white stud dog from the Artica line. Do any of you own a white Artica German Shepherd?

Anthony,

Thanks for the suggestion. I've already tried the pedigree database; however, maybe I should try posting something on their Forum also. Since this is my first experience with a forum I'm not really sure how they work. For instance, I would have placed a picture of Meika on my original message but did not know how. Do I just use the attachment tool?

You need to upload your pictures to a hosting website like photobucket. Then when you go to your picture on photobucket you'll see a thing that says img code. Copy the whole img code and paste it in a message here. It should look like: [i mg]http://www.something.com[/im g]. Then when you click post the picture will show up. Over in the Pictures! Pictures! section there's a step-by-step walkthrough for posting pictures.

I would not. I've looked at your dog's ancestors on the database. No offense, but the people at pedigreedatabase would eat you alive. They would say rude and mean things because your dog is not bred under the SV system, nor is it a European working or show line dog. People over there are not nearly as nice as they are here.

Sounds as if you found the pedigree information.
Maybe you can post a link for the OP.

As far as pedigrees go, I'm no help at all. If you don't have his pedigree, then don't breed him. That should be the very first thing you should have before considering breeding.

But how old is your dog? Does he have hip/elbow certification from OFA or PennHip? Does he have any titles? Obedience, conformation, rally, agility, flyball, etc.? Those are the first absolute bare minimums you should have/consider before wanting to breed.

6 years of age is not the ideal time to start breeding your bitch. Why do you want to breed her? Has she been shown, titled, OFA'd? If none of those things, no reputable stud dog owner will give you the time of day. Without OFA certification and at least some kind of title or temperament test, or even any paperwork, the only studs you'll be able to find are similarly untitled, untested, backyard-bred dogs of questionable quality, and you don't want to go that route.

Artica is renowned for deliberately breeding dogs against the standard, so I wouldn't consider any of them breeding quality. Not to say there's anything wrong with your dog, I'm sure she is a lovely pet. She just doesn't need to be bred, that's all.

I found the sire:
Artica's Corona - German Shepherd Dog

A few half-siblings:
Artica's Shania Of Creekwell - German Shepherd Dog
Artica's Pepper - German Shepherd Dog

And I think a cousin:
Artica's Mystic Mya - German Shepherd Dog

Welcome from Central Florida!!!

I didn't realize Artica had gone out of business.

You don't mention what area you live in, but there are several WGSD clubs that hold conformation shows along with the UKC and some rare breed clubs. You can enter her in some of these conformation shows sponsored by these clubs to ensure that her conformation meets the breed standard. The second thing you'll need to do is to have several health tests done (including OFA or OVC) to help ensure you'd have a good chance of having healthy puppies. The members of these clubs can also help you find a quality stud dog.
