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.
All Puppies Adopted from Litter "F"

Planned Puppy Litters
VonBIOS has two (2) females awaiting for their "season" commencement in 2020 and Stud Dog selection is being assessed.
VonBIOS Clara ("Onyx")
Onyx has her season every 4 months.
Next season expected around July 2020;
VonBIOS Birget ("Eva")
Next season excepted round August 2020;
VonBIOS Adala ("Ava")
Next season expected around September 2020;
Having three (3) VonBIOS females coming into season in mid-late-2020 requires scheduling to manage the impending litters. This will require the delay of some VonBIOS Females until late 2020 and into 2021.
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 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 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."
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.
