For us the ideal White Shepherd is healthy strong vital animal, middle sized, middle boned, well muscled, with good instincts and will to work, calm at home but active and fast when working, that can be pushed and that takes stress and is capable to work long hours, that is not afraid of gun shots, and whose exterior is excellent according to the breed standard and has got black pigmentation and white coat.
In our breeding program we firstly concentrate on health then on character and working ability and only then on exterior. And the reason is that we feel winners blood in sick dogs pedigree will not make the dog owner happy. So we try to do everything we can to make the risk minimum which can be done only when prioritizing the health most. After all, even the winners are first and foremost our friends and family members and only then show or competition dogs.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
