About our dogs
German Shepherd: Our GSDs are second to none in terms of health and temperament. They come from imported Eastern European (Slovak and DDR) working lines. Our GSD line includes:
Hank vom Osterfeld line (see http://www.pedigreedatabase.com/german_shepherd_dog/dog.html?id=574166 ).
Nick vom Heiligenbösch (see http://www.pedigreedatabase.com/german_shepherd_dog/dog.html?id=443 )
Ernest Bono Campo line (see http://www.pedigreedatabase.com/german_shepherd_dog/dog.html?id=573023) and
Enny Tur-Lad line (see http://www.pedigreedatabase.com/german_shepherd_dog/dog.html?id=692470) line.
Belgian Malinois: Our Malinois's come from exceptional lines and include the oldest Belgian Malinois lines - des Deux Pottois. The father of our Malinois bitch (Ruth) is a general purpose security working dog who works for a prestigious security company in London; her mother is narcotics trained. Ruth is a trained PPD and search dog. Ruth's lines reads like a 'who's who' of exceptional Belgian Malinois's over many years and includes:
Chucky van de Schemmersberg (her father, LOSH 937175) (see http://www.pedigreedatabase.com/belgian_malinois/dog.html?id=734940).
Arco (LOSH 889126) and Zita Van Kempens Glorie (LOSH 871901)
Utamarou des Deux Pottois (IPO 3 and FMBB 99-3, Winner of 3 Belgian Championships in IPO, all breeds; Winner of 2 Belgian Championships in IPO, Belgian Shepherd).
Sim des Deux Pottois (LOSH 733812, French and Belgian Ring lines)
Elgos du Chemin des Plaines (French Ring III; Mondio Ring III; 6 times World Competitor)
G'Vitou des Deux Pottois (French Ring III; Belgian Ring I)
G'Bibber ALSH 34996 (Belgian Ring I, FIN-87-1)
and the equally famous Cartouche (Ring I, NVBK 82-1, 83-1)
Ruth comes from a very old line of Belgian Malinois that can be traced back to the 1890's and it interesting to see how the breed has developed, becoming much larger in size. If you follow the line of Utamarou des Deux Pottois for example, it includes: Rachid de la Fraternitie (LOSH 110997) born in 1942; Goliath du Chalet des Glycines (LOSH 39848) born in 1930; Deivet (LOSH 6466) born in 1901 and Vos des Polders (LOSH 5847) born in 1897. Similarly, the G'Bibber line includes Sirol (LOSH 114301) born in 1944 and Tomy Segers (LOB 138) born in 1896.
Dutch Herders: Our Dutch Herder Stud Dog, Nipper, comes from the Tommy Luijken line http://www.pedigreedatabase.com/dutch_shepherd/dog.html?id=1625286 and our brood bitch, Judy (from the Kelly line) was a Dutch import, born in England. Unlike the Belgian Malinois that can have traceable lines back to the 1890s, the Dutch Herder lines are traceable to the 1960s (e.g. Tommy Luijken's line). This is because the Dutch Herder (which according to latest evidence is a naturally occurring dog) came out of a Dutch farming environment where dogs were bred for function and purpose. This tradition continues with the KNPV breeders and those in Holland and elsewhere that breed dogs for health, temperament and athleticism rather than conforming to a breed standard. Whilst KNPV lines do keep records now there are still other unregistered dogs that are bred to work for real - reality dogs. Our Dutch Herder stud dog and brood bitch are from KNPV lines and are what we call reality dogs, with very high drives, good health and sound temperament.
Our Dutch Herder stud dogs lines include:
Tommy Luijken BRN 2541 (KNPV PH1)
Rocky Van Leeuwen BRN 1676 (KNPV PH1, PH2, OBJ, Surveillance Dog)
Duco II BRN 60 (KNPV PH1) 'Duco II was a very complete dog with excellent drives. A very tough dog which made him excellent for police work. This is what he produced in his descendants - very strong dogs with big heads'

Kitty BRN 123 (PH I 411 CL)

DUTCH HERDER 'PROVEN' STUD DOG - NIPPER
As you would expect from the Tommy line our DH stud is 'big', very impressive and has generated a lot of interest. He is 28 inches to the withers with a big head. He has a short coat, and is brindle colour. He is 4 years old, very obedient and intelligent. Loyal, loving and very protective of his family/pack. On patrol he clears a path just with his presence. Contact us if you are looking for a DH stud (for working lines ONLY/not KC) for DH, Malinois, East European GSD or other working lines - all inquiries assessed on an individual basis by us personally.
