I am owned by a six year old Dutch. Rossi was from a person that purchased a decent kennel f Dutch and Mals. Thought he was going to make a fortune breeding working dogs. Didn't care about genetics...temperament...health. Rossi is my Craigslist find. Love her dearly. There are 3people, including myself and my husband that can touch her anytime. But she is the smartest dog I have ever worked with. I have owned a total of six working line GSDs and her. She will pick up a new behavior in a few tries. Excels at nosework and tracking. Spins when stresses to the point of almost falling over. Barks at the window if a squirrel two blocks away farts. She is six now and her energy level is slowing down. If I had been younger when looking for a male puppy two years ago, I would have seriously considered another from a few breeders that have shown to produce dogs that are clear headed. Rossi just has a little pin ball machine in hers...😍 Wouldn't trade her for any other dog. Just wish she wasn't so nervy and reactive. I think it is much harder to find great breeders of Dutch Shepherds.
