I have always wanted to own and train a German shepherd. But, as with al my dogs, it would have to be off working stock. So I acquired Foxy (Gangkuza Aza) from a Polish breeder in London working in security who had bred his dog to another GSD owned by a Czech. Knowing nothing about GSD breeding, I reckoned this, and the viewing of several videos of both parents doing man work, would guarantee a working pup. I was right!

To my mind, this dog is perfectly designed to be an active working dog.

Again, an almost perfect conformation for work, though more solidly built and shorter coupled than Klodo above.

Her breeding is Czech-DDR border guarding lines.

Pedigree here.

A very solid pup from pure Czech working lines.

These dogs are not for the inexperienced.

Pedigree here.
