She will visit her Vet this week for Vaccinations and general health check-up in readiness for her "season".

  • Website Planned Site Improvements

(see opposite); and

  • VonBIOS Birget ("Eva") produced via C-Section (1 x female born 26/11/2020.

PLANNED SITE IMPROVEMENTS

VonBIOS plans to make changes to achieve the following outcomes -

  1. Mobile/Tablet functionality improvements;

  2. VonBIOS database enhancement to cater for dog-related information from birth to "crossing the rainbow bridge";

  3. Scheduling facility for canine health management and VonBIOS progeny research;

  4. Female season monitoring and prospective progeny management.

  5. Contact Resource Management (CRM) to receive and respond to VonBIOS puppy adoption inquiries.

VonBIOS Birget ("Eva" - Sable)

1 x female born (cesarean section) on

October 26, 2020.

 

"Eva" was Ultrasound scanned Monday, October 26, 2020, to determine puppy heartbeats and numbers. in her Litter, which sadly, was only two (2). However, the male could not be saved and the female is doing very well.

 

This puppy's pedigree name will VonBIOS Gretel.

Gretel is now 21 days old as at 16/11/2020. Gretel is in the "Back of House" care from her grandmother, Tessie, who will be 12 years old late in December 2020, as per the Youtube video below.

 

The Stud Dog is Dasty vom Ludwigseck BH AD, an "All Black" imported from Germany, October 2019. Eva's sire is the imported, Dark Red Sable, Bruno vom Wallensener Hof IPO2. Apart from the drive attributes of both imported dogs, their respective obedience and protection Dasty's all-black coat has darkened the coat.

Eva rejected her sole surviving puppy (female)., which means, hand raising her. So far, this puppy is getting fed on-demand.

VonBIOS Gretel, is now receiving "Back of House" care from her Grandmother, "Tessie". This relieves me of the task of stimulating Gretel's nether region to produce "1's and 2's". "Tessie" is providing parental stimulation as well puppy do's and don't's in behaviour.

Planned Puppy Litters

VonBIOS is waiting for three (3) VonBIOS females waiting for their "season" commencement in late 2020 or early 2021.

  • VonBIOS Dagomar - Season starts 

("Une") All Black

"Une'sseason commencement is expected before uncertain, but swabbed twice weekly, so we don't miss it.  She had her Hip/Elbow Dysplasia X-Ray Assessment in early August 2020, so we would expect her next season to be before February 2021, remembering, they have a 6 months cycle. Don't be surprised if her season starts earlier.

  • VonBIOS Clara - Season starts February 2021

("Onyx"All Black) 

Onyx is based in Perth/Kalgoorlie (WA). She had a season during the Covid-19 pandemic and the West Australia border closure. Her next season is expected around March 2021, however, "Onyx" has her season every 4 to 5 months, which may affect her fertility levels and our Reproductive Vet may introduce procedures to "reset" her season regulatory to every 6 months.

  • VonBIOS Adala ("Ava")

Dark Sable

Next season now expected April 2021.

Ava's October season was missed by her owners. A regular swab test initiated to detect season start. We are also taking the opportunity for some "dietary improvements" for Ava

Having three (3) VonBIOS females coming into season in late 2020's to early 2021's requires scheduling to manage the impending litters. 

Considering the demand for a quality working line German Shepherd Dog puppies during 2020, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, VonBIOS has had to bring on suitable (subject to health and behavioural assessment) available VonBIOS females.

Normally, female canines have two (2) seasons within a twelve (12) months period; it can be more often and it can even be less. The following might assist you with your planning.

VonBIOS will be drawing on females from our Litters "C", and "D" through the 2020 / 2021 seasons.

Contact VonBIOS to make further inquiries for a

 working line German Shepherd Dog puppy.

Whelping Outcome

December 24, 2019

 

VonBIOS Litter "F" (Kovacs Vikus mated with VonBIOS Carolin) and x-rayed with 8 puppies did not result as expected and indeed was quite sad.  The result was only 7 puppies (1 x male and 6 x females), though in itself, not the sad part.  The whelping started 2 days early on Christmas Eve (December 24, 2019), instead of Boxing Day (December 26, 2019). So I was caught off-guard for this early birth, but should not have been.

 

Earlier management of "Jess's" temperature would probably have forearmed me of an earlier whelping.

The sad part is that the 1st puppy (female) died at birth as a result of the mother cutting (chewing) the umbilical cord too close to the belly area and damaging some organs. Apparently this can happen with maiden bitches, but I have never encountered it previously.

 

The 2nd puppy (female) died 1 day after her birth. She was significantly underweight (212 grams) and it would appear, not sufficiently developed, despite my every effort to priority feeding and nurturing her.

 

Two subsequent good-sized females, the 3rd and 4th puppies were stillborn and despite undertaking CPR routines, I could not resuscitate them.

 

OUTCOME

We have 3 x puppies out of the 7 puppies born (1 x male, 2 x females) in good health, all Bi-Colour (All Black with Brown feet), same as their Sire, Kovacs Vikus.

The 1 x male has been adopted and will reside in Regional Victoria (Australia).

Therefore, there are two (2) only Bi-Coloured females are currently available, as some Litter "F" prospective Guardians have transferred their orders to Litter "G", due around late June 2020. The prospective Dam is the All Black litter sister ("Onyx") to VonBIOS Carolin ("Jess").

WHAT TO DO NEXT?

 

WORKING LINE GERMAN SHEPHERD DOGS

Von BIOS is a niche Breeder and Trainer of working line German Shepherd Dogs (Deutscher Schäferhund), based near Melbourne, Australia. We just love these magnificent canines for their superior intelligence, high prey drive, bodily strength, strong character and friendly disposition, along with their devotion to their "Pack and Pack Leaders"

 

 

ARE YOU A "PACK LEADER"?

It is our mission and indeed, reward in life, to be able to facilitate the creation of exceptional litters of German Shepherd Dog puppies. We provide every opportunity for each Puppy to be enhanced and placed in readiness for adoption and placement with their new "Pack and Pack Leaders" (families and teams). We are seeking persons who are committed to developing these magnificent canines into functional, responsive and manageable members of their group.

 

As much as a working line German Shepherd Dog can be demanding for some inexperienced handlers, if you put the effort in, which is not onerous, you can become an effective “Pack Leader” with a VonBIOS working line German Shepherd Dog and reap the rewards of a healthier lifestyle with exercise and stress reduction aiding in a happier you (here is hoping).

 

SO WHERE DO YOU START?

Selecting a suitable working line German Shepherd Dog (Puppy) requires the initial question of, "why do you require such a dog and how do you intend to engage, train and utlise him or her"?
