Update for December 4, 8:52 am, 2020
VonBIOS Birget ("Eva" - Sable)
1 x female born (cesarean section) on
October 26, 2020.
"Eva" was Ultrasound scanned Monday, October 26, 2020, 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.
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 stipulating 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.
At birth on 26/10/2020, 397 grams;
Last weighed on 4/12/2020, 3.749 kgs.
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.

Stud Dog to be determined
VonBIOS is constantly researching Stud Dogs for our female working line German Shepherd Dogs. With this in mind and with the intention of puppies from Litter "A" (1) Dark Sable, Litter "B" (1) Dark Sable, and Litter "C" (2) All Black females as planned for late 2019 through to early 2020. We are looking forward to doing what breeders of purebred German Shepherd Dogs should always do, and that is, achieve what was supposedly started by the founder of the breed, Captain Max von Stephanitz. Here are a couple of quotes, which say a lot -
The breeder can indeed lay the foundations of a good and serviceable dog but the trainer must see to it that he brings to their highest possible development, the physical and mental foundations already laid and thus his is the more grateful task.
SOME PRECIOUS MOMENTS
FROM PREVIOUS LITTERS
"The most striking features of the correctly bred German Shepherds are firmness of nerves, attentiveness, unshockability, tractability, watchfulness, reliability and incorruptibility together with courage, fighting tenacity and hardness."
