Shade is one of the most promising young dogs we have seen in a very long time. She is upper middle sized with a lean, athletic build and great structure. In temperament she is very strong and balanced in her drives with excellent hardness and resilience and exceptional clear headedness. Though she does have a bit of an independent streak and can be a mischievous imp at times, she is always engaging and eager to work. She is making great progress in all phases with intense tracking, focused obedience, and powerful protection showing good barking, grips that are always full, calm and hard, total confidence and strong fight drive toward the helper. Her nerves are outstanding. Nothing phases her and she is pretty much as bombproof as it gets. At home she exhibits a great off switch and is a well mannered house dog. She is very outgoing and social with people and gets along well with other dogs.

Shade is 3rd generation Wildhaus bred. She reminds us a LOT of her dam, Isis v Wildhaus IPO3, OB1, TR1, RN, OA, OAJ, NF, CGC, TT, and grand-dam, "Raven" Caliber v Wildhaus SchH3, AWD2, PD1, P1, PA, T1, FO, UCD, URO2, CGC, TT. This is a very, very good thing as both of these females were exceptional dogs in every way; on the field, at home, and in the whelping box. They possessed excellent working ability in all phases, achieving not only SchH3/IPO3 but also a variety of titles in other sports and produced litter after litter with the same talent and versatility. Offspring of Raven and Isis are excelling in everything from SchH/IPO and other bitesports to police work, SAR, tracking, AKC obedience, agility, rally, dock diving... and the list could go on. They are also exceptional family companions and protectors at home.

Shade's sire, Glenn vom Haus Valkenplatz, needs no introduction. A multiple time Dutch Champion and podium placing WUSV competitor, he was the fan favorite for his power and intensity when I had the pleasure to see him compete at the 2013 WUSV. He was one of the few dogs there that really caught my eye and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to breed Isis to him a few years later. Glenn brought to the table not only his own remarkable qualities but also a pedigree full of excellent producers of strong GSDs.

Unfortunately our litter with Isis and Glenn only produced two puppies. Fortunately, Shade and her litter sister, Saga (who we co-own), are both absolute rockstars and very, very similar to one another. We joke that they must actually be twins, not just littermates. We have high hopes that Shade and Saga will continue to follow in the footsteps of their extraordinary ancestors and so far, so good!
