Whelped – November 17th, 2017 (16 puppies, 8 males, 8 females)

Dam: Blair vom Schätzeberg 0871/15

M: Yari KS vom Sauwerder 0296/10
V: Campo II KS vom Alberthain 0174/11

Blair has proven her trainability, desire and drive with excellent scores in the Derby and Solms back in Germany. This is shown in her multiple 4h scores in both trials and being the offspring of two KS dogs and more than 50% KS in her bloodlines. In addition she proved her versatility by passing the “Brauchbarkeit” in Germany before reaching the age of 2. Relocating her to the US kept her from participating in a VGP at that age. She is a pleasure hunting with unbelievable drive in the water and as a well-balanced companion every day, she is great with kids and other dogs.

Xam II aka “Django” brings everything expected from the breed in Germany: Trainability, endless drive no matter the task, repeatedly proven sharpness on predator game and as recently tested on boar back in Germany. His first season under the age of 2 was stacked with trials: Derby, Solms and VGP (all prize 1 and across two continents) as well as the sharpness test and a BH under the USCA registry. In addition to his hunting work, he is also being trained and trialed in obedience, tracking and protection (IPO).
Despite the versatile use and training, he is a very level-headed, extremely athletic young male, great with kids and even a cat in the household as well as around horses and cattle on a daily base (Veterinary Hospital environment).
Standing at 26.5 inches, with an SG-1 score at the Annual meeting in April and the V-1 score recently in Illinois, he promises to bring the physique and conditioning that is looked for in a Stud dog and hunting companion.

Darwin crossed the pond upon command without hesitation and searched thoroughly without the duck. He made short work of his live duck search and retrieved flawlessly. Darwin received his KS.
