Jennifer Holtgrew says this about Mea, "Mea is from our own program and was co-bred with our good friends Adel Haus.  Mea is extremely stable and adaptable. Drivey when needed, and a special therapy dog when that need arises. Her pigment is stunning!" Later Mea will be training for her CDX and UD...

Mea is an outstanding dog with an amazing personality, fun loving and beautiful too.... An excellent ambassador for the breed...

Her sire, SG1 Half vom Aalenbach SchH2 AD CGC Kkl2 HIT, is described by Adel Haus as: "an exceptional male from Germany. He is my dream dog. He is balanced in all that he does and carries the true German Shepherd temperament. He comes from outstanding working bloodlines.  He has 4 World Class BSP competitors and 1 LGA competitor in the first two generations. He is loaded with confidence and sprit. He is lively and bold; this shows in his great working ethic.  Half is such an outstanding male, that our young children can work him with ease. He is very social, calm and collected. Half is known for producing outstanding character with awesome drive and stability. Half has been a consistent sire of outstanding progeny. to date, Half has sired certified dual purpose working K9s, certified drug K9s, competition schutzhund dogs, certified search and rescue and therapy dogs, competition obedience and agility dogs, 4-H project dogs, and certified service dogs and outstanding family companions."

Half's sire and grandsire are: SG Boy vom Pendel Bach SchH3 IPO3 Kkl1 (SG BSP, WUSV, FCI) and Fado von Karthago SchH3 IPO3 FH Kkl1 (1989 WUSV Sieger, 1990 2nd place WUSV, BSP).

Half is now retired and lives on the farm with Jennifer. He still is an athletic dog that doesn't know he's 10 years old.  His progeny are sought after for the extreme trainability and ability to adapt to any level of handler.

Mea's dam is SG Zarah von der Krempau BH AD 4-H obedience champion. Jennifer describes Zarah, "Zarah's drive put most showlines to shame. Her personality made her favorite everywhere she went. Zarah is a German import.  She is known as a very versatile proven producer with an outstanding hip production."
