*Please see my statement on breeding "carriers" HERE.
My dogs are too robust for what is currently winning in the AKC show ring, however I do want licensed judges to give me a written statement on my dogs, so I do go to IABCA International shows for this.
Here are Lancer's three critiques:
(Waiting for a show in our area)
Believe me, it is VERY nerve wracking to buy a dog from overseas - sight unseen. Lots of money, lots of logistics, lots of anticipation about just what will walk out of the crate! I have to say that of all my overseas dealings, working with European K9 Training Base was the smoothest - and resulted in my getting a splendid pup that exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend them to those thinking of importing a Doberman or a Boxer dog.
Lancer is something else - but then, he should be with his genetics. He is the sweetest guy, but with an intense work drive in all the important areas. My nick name for him is "The Boy Wonder". He is just a pup, but I really could not be more happy with him. Being of pure working lines, he was purchased with the idea of breeding him to my my more "show-line" bred European Doberman girls.
Lance's sire is the well known Ataraxie's Emil, IPO 3, SchH 3, FH 2, ZTP SG1A (DCM 1/2 Clear) a well known IPO competition dog in Europe. His dam is Funny European K9 Training Base, IPO 3, ZTP SG1A, (DCM 1/2 Clear), she herself from an IPO 3 x IPO 3 breeding. Lance has a very "open" pedigree, very little line or inbreeding; only two dogs are listed as being linebred on looking at his 5 generation pedigree, and these are the magnificent bitch Jotunheim's Brattah, SchH 3, IPO 3 and the dog, Italian Working Champion 2002 and 2003, Bingo vom Haus Astegg, SchH 3, IPO 3, ZTP V1A who lived to be 14 years old!
Lancer has gotten me so excited I am dreaming of titling him in IPO and AKC obedience! My physical condition may not allow me, but for now it gives me a dream and a reason to fight through the pain each day.
