 A Great Dog Needs a Great Pedigree !!!

Duke is a low to medium drive dog. He is very loving and super funny! but still very protective of his home and he'll let you know if someone is there. He gets along with all people, kids and other dogs. Really a once in a lifetime dog....  He has been working as a therapy dog for over a year now in a hospice center. He is well known and is even invited to all their parties and get togethers.
Duke only needs one more win to finish his UKC Championship title and is ready to compete in obedience, rally and nosework.

Duke's sire is Buzz and he is best described by his owner and breeder, Melinda Clark...

"Buzz is a dark sable male with a lot of substance. He has a huge, masculine head and a lot of bone. He's fit, athletic and 100% health cleared. Buzz is 100% stable. I can take him anywhere. He goes to parades with me, loves kids, good with dogs.  His versatility is endless. I've only just begun with him. He is naturally protective of his family. He is extremely driven, loves to work and full of enthusiasm. At home, he has a nice off switch and settles easily.

Buzz is a high drive male. His tracking nose is excellent. His protection work is fast and confident. He hits hard and is serious. His obedience is biddable and very clean. Buzz has an excellent temperament. Buzz has nearly 20 progeny actively working and certifying in Search and Rescue. (one of those puppies is from our A Litter, Laser)

In the August 2009, Buzz made his UKC Conformation debut. His Championship came very easily to him. In one weekend, he earned 4 Best Puppy, 4 Winners Male, 4 Best of Breed, 1 Group 4 Win and 1 Group 1 Win! On February 13, 2010, he earned his last 20 points needed for his UCH. 

On May 15, 2010, Buzz made his debut in the German Breed ring. He was being shown for his Breed rating and earned an SG3. We are VERY proud that not only did Buzz earn his SG (Very Good) rating, but that he placed 3rd with his SG as well. He goes SG EVERY TIME he's shown.

Buzz's progeny are being trained and performing well in Search and Rescue, Flyball, Obedience, Schutzhund and more....  

 


Linea , Duke's mother, is a beautiful bi color female with rich pigment and is the granddaughter of our male, Jaryn "Logan" von der Dornburg. She is clear headed and has an amazing personality and temperament; she gets along with everyone she meets whether they have 2 legs or 4.

Linea is very athletic and built to work just like grandfather and very eager to learn and please. She loves to jump and does so with ease. Linea, like all my dogs, competes in a wide variety of venues including: Schutzhund, AKC/UKC obedience and rally, conformation, weight pulling, herding, nosework, lure cursing and whatever else we can find. Plus she is Therapy Dog Certified and now my current service dog.

Linea's grandsire, Int. CH, UCH, UCD OB1 Jaryn "Logan" von der Dornburg SchH 1, TR 2, AD, CDX, TD, Can. CD, RE, RL1, OV, TDI, CGC, has a truly amazing pedigree just check out his page for complete details.  Logan is the son of V Rocky von den Zinglegärten SchH3 IP3, FH1 Kkl1'a' who has compete well at the world level as well as many of his offspring. Rocky has competed at the WUSV for Germany, and at the Bundessieger, placing third in 2001and tenth in 2000! Rocky is described as a friendly and out-going dog in person and he shows wonderful concentration in his work. He is known for producing mentally stable progeny. Logan’s dam, Isa von der Kinzigau SchH3 Kkl1'a', is best described by her owner, Laurie Tollifson, “Isa is a little power house. Wild as a March hare yet as intense as a hawk. She has a strong work ethic, balanced drives and a fun-loving personality. Also, extreme trainability and hits like a Mack truck.” Isa earned her SchH 3 at 24 months and took SG1 at the 2001 South Central Regional Conformation Show. Logan's pedigree consists of many world and national competitors- 3 WUSV participants, 11 BSP participants with 1 Sieger and 9 with V scores! and 3 LGA participants...

Linea's dam is SG Valley von Holtgrew SchH 1 Kkl1. She is a Logan daughter and has a super temperament. When she was in Germany being trained and titled she would work with anyone and was one of their favorites.

Linea's sire is V14 '11 Gordon vom Fuchsgraben SCHH3 IPO3 FH2 Kkl1 and is best described by his owner, Kris Taylor, "Gordon is an exceptionally powerfully built dog.  He has superb explosive muscle tone with a very easy gait and has an extreme pigmentation that is second to none with working line dogs.  He carries these traits with many of his offspring as he reproduces himself very well. He is amazingly well balanced in his drives, temperament and nerves.  Gordon is a top sport level competition dog currently still competing nationally and will continue to compete in the conformation ring at the highest levels.  His character is magnificent which makes him the picture perfect family dog. Gordon is completely neutral to other dogs showing zero aggression to other dogs, cats or any other animals. He is wonderful with small children and anyone acting in a normal fashion.  Try to break into his house or approach a vehicle he is occupying and he would trigger every natural fear in a human nervous system.  He is not a dog any stranger could just walk off with."

Linea's grandsire (sire side) is V KK1 Vito vom Waldwinkel SCH3. Many think that Vito vom Waldwinkel to be the best son of WUSV Sieger Tom van't Leefdaalhof, producing dogs to the BSP and WUSV. Vito is known for producing strong working ability, as exhibited by his progeny at the top level of the sport in the prese
nt time. This is exemplified by the strong working kennels in Europe that bred to him and dogs that are on the competition field.

Linea is linebred on 1989 WUSV SIEGER Fado von Karthago SCHH3 FH IP3 on both the sire and dam's side. Fado von Karthago SCHH3 FH IP3 Kkl1 won the WUSV in 1989 and 2nd Place in 1990!
