years of activity and passion
puppies born in 13 litters
national and international achievements
Any kind of passion sometimes born through fortuitous inspiration.
That’s what it was for me.
I grew up with a German shepherd dog as a friend, its name was Jork, it was more than playfellow, was my guardian angel. For my 13th birthday I received a book as gift; from this precise moment is born my passion. “IL BRANCO DELLA ROSA CANINA” book inspired me the methodology of the selection of the German shepherd. I had to try to bring the race back to its original health and genuineness, without losing anything in beauty and harmony. From the original wolves the breeders made and are still making a disputable selection. Or towards beauty standard at the expense of health and strength, forced to care and suffering. All this because the dog world had and still has, care to set in the lines only beauty or extreme instinctiveness for Work competitions.
From that moment my journey began. I started to study the blood lines, crossing them. In this way I set the standards of those that have become the objectives of My German Shepherd.
I was very young, full of passion and enthusiasm and the dog world confronted me with experience breeders, who contributed with their availability, helping to growth, sharing their knowledge with me.
So, on March 16, 1999, I requested and obtained from the F.C.I. (International Cynological Federation) the affix “Del Branco della Rosa Canina”.
In the same year, the first official litters were born, obtained from subjects who, in addition to having the characteristics of the standard, could provide genetically those factors that had to define my concept of German Shepherd.
With great satisfaction, the first dogs born have always obtained the highest qualification during all the exhibitions, sectionals, national, and international competitions.
In 2001 Lord Lex of the Branco della Rosa Canina born, he summarizes the essence of the German Shepherd Dog who was fortuitously inspired by the book.
Magnificent specimen, distinctly masculine, pigmented harmoniously and with sociable and balanced temper; of absolute health, completely free from hip and elbow dysplasia. Lord Lex was an excellent breeding dog. After having obtained the patent and the first selection, at 8, it was trained for the Sea Rescue.
The Branco della Rosa Canina continues today thanks to its progeny and all the passion that I am putting for the selection of this wonderful race.
