The Girls

We are now no longer part of the Kennel Club Accredited Breeder Scheme. We removed ourselves from their listings. We were disappointed that at no point, not one person from the Kennel Club either contacted us by phone or came to view the conditions in which we look after our dogs.

Our cheque was cashed within 2 weeks and our Certificate of being an Accredited Breeder was issued?

Not much of a standard really!!!

You may still however find more information about the scheme can be found HERE.

DM Testing Abbreviations

n/n = Clear: Dog is negative for the Degenerative Myelopathy mutation.

DM/DM = At Risk: Dog is likely to be affected by Degenerative Myelopathy, and will always pass on a copy of the mutation to any offspring.

n/DM = Carrier: Dog carries one copy of the mutation associated with Degenerative Myelopathy, and could pass on the mutation to any offspring, if not bred to a n/n partner.

Captain

Athena is sister to T’Challa.

She is extremely elegant, happy, kind and very sociable.

Athena has the most beautiful coat, at first glance solid black but in fact it is a mixture of bi-colour and seal… never been to great on colours but this is my guess.

She has a wonderful light charm about her, especially when in the fields chasing butterflies and in general exploring her surroundings. Her gait and elegance just ‘float on by’

When Athena is old enough to have pups, my choice would probably be Captain, Captain will complement Athena’s charm in many ways in addition to being n/n for DM, against Athena’s n/dm.

Moving on….

Athena has had 3 very beautiful litters and has proven to be the very best of mums in her rearing and capability. She is strong and athletic with a long, sleek black/seal coat that often eludes the true beauty on a photograph.


Athena is very lovely and very loyal, she will turn on a coin for you and her re-call is impeccable. Always loves a ball, her playmates and a good fuss and a carrot. Athena is very easy to please and very easy to love.


Athena also does not like all dogs, but is responsive and very open to correction, so a strong minded handler is always a must.
We will look to find a retirement home for Athena. This home will need to have confident family members as Athena, who are as
loving as they are firm. Athena is very intuitive.

Dahlia is a happy, alert girl, who sits without hesitation when asked. She is kind and calm, but is happy to take charge when needed.

Dahlia is 4th generation GVW.

An absolute diamond of a youngster.

Calm, happy, kind.

Very much like her mum x

Always from a pup she has been no trouble, Queenie is kind and affectionate.

She is a huge girl even at of 12 months, she was very tall, long and rangy.

Queenie is a very good mix of her mum and dad (Minx & Chillie).

 

Queenie was named perfectly, she is regal, kind, calm, authoritative and majestic.

A truly wonderful nature and great mother to her pups.

Queenie is fabulous externally when out on walks, with great lead control and acceptance of her environment.

She is a firm favourite with the staff, she is playful and happy and keen to keep her buddy Margo in line.

I have never experienced a dog birth as she does, very calm, super chilled, no stress, very little effort, it simply happens, and that is how Queenie roles in her life in general.

Ava is a gorgeous silver sable girl, great out with our terriers and youngsters.

 

One of 2 sisters, Ava and Munroe.

Calm, kind, gracious a truly beautiful dark silver sable girl.

Very, very happy and easy to please.

Ava is being raised by her mother, both a little bossy around food, but very manageable.

I think Ava will fit in just nicely here, she is alert and loves playing out with her young sister, which shows me she has a great nature.

 

Roll forward a few years……

 

She is already nicely settled into her semi-retirement home and lives in the same village living with one of our retired boys Cooper and her new family, Neil & Liz, whom I thank with all of my heart for giving Ava such a wonderful loving home.

Amazing in her nature and her elegance.

Ava is without a doubt one of our best girls and we are very proud to be able to not only show but authenticate such an impressive line of nature and beauty leading all the way to this little lady.

Fantastic on the lead and super chilled in the house environment.

Ava has made the very best of mums, and hopefully will have her last litter with us before she well and truly hangs up her pregnancy boots!

Vivienne, daughter of Captain


Sister to Aida


Granddaughter to Stone


Vivienne, named after Ms Westwood certainly lives up to her name with total sleek, individuality, elegance and a true ‘dare’ to be herself.


Vivienne is bright as a button and with her calm, kind nature she is a firm favourite with everyone on the farm.


A dark sable short coat with the prettiest of eyes, a real gorgeous soul this one.


Very much looking forward to finding her the right pairing to really bring out the very best in the lines that she carries.


As always being one of Stone’s granddaughters, you simply cannot go wrong in having a dog like Vivienne in your life.

Margo is simply gorgeous, a lovely silver sable long coated girl, with the prettiest of everything really.


Margo is very youthful in her manner, she is playful, carefree and happy to just fly around the fields chasing whatever and whoever there is to find fun with.


A fantastic specimen of a silver sable long coat GSD, Minx really did make some beautiful pups that I know many of us are very grateful for.


Margo will hopefully produce some equally wonderful pups in time, but in the meantime, she will continue her merry way in life.

Granddaughter of Minx & Chillie.


Great granddaughter of Roma & Vito.


GiGi is the sweetest, kindest girl, as long as there’s no food around.


She is playful and carefree and loves a good snuggle.


She is definitely a calm, happy girl and has been fantastic in raising Gloria, her half sister, who is also a Quattro daughter.


GiGi, enjoys her walks on and off the farm and is a delight in all aspects of her personality.


As always with any off-spring of Minx, just a beautiful girl.

Tarka, is brilliant.

A truly strong-minded gem, all on Tarka’s terms but willing to please, to relax, to be loved.


Tarka has a wonderful short bi colour coat which shows her fantastic structure off to great effect.


Her brother boasts coming Best Reserved GSD pup at Crufts in 2022 – quite a big step in the right direction with his strong straight back and high hocks.


We will be excited to receive a litter from this lady and see how she fares as a mother, because as everything else she is without fault.


A semi-retirement home will be found for Tarka, she will need love, structure, friendship and would really suit someone who maybe would like to be active with her, camping, walking, swimming, whatever it is I am certain Tarka with thrive.

SiSi is named after her grandmothers Sierra’s pet name.

A very special girl for me in many ways. Sierra was the most wonderful of girls, being one of my 4 patriarch girls, Sooner, Hope, Sapphire & Sierra. These 4 girls would mix with any dog, raise any pup, be in charge of any situation, they were all calm, caring and fiercely loyal to me.


Sierra had only 2 litters of 5 girls in each litter. Sadly one of the girls from these litters was bred from by an external person and a legacy of extremely bad breeding took place simply to produce unique colours. This experience for me was the sole reason why I never lift restrictions to breed anymore.


SiSi is all I have of Sierra and so for me to continue such a special girls’ lines in a healthy, correct and ethical way is important.


SiSi is one of the rarest of colours you’ll find in the GSD, being Isabella, a unique fusion of ginger tones.


This girl is power and on reflection should have been called Boadicea, she fears nothing and will give her whole self to keep your space safe for you. With this nature comes a fine balance. Once SiSi knows you she is ‘yours’ no compromise, no judgement, no negotiation, she is simply all yours, however her space is your space and she will guard it with ferocity.


SiSi will not welcome strangers lightly but once she knows you, there are no bounds to her love and affection for you.


I would very much like to find SiSi a semi-retirement home but know that this will take a very special location a very special owner and ultimately a very special friend to take SiSi into their lives, until then she will of course be loved by me.

Aida boasts the best hips we have ever seen here at GVW, being 0/2.


A perfect little package of beauty and drive.

Aida, is a busy little lady who aims to please, loves a good fuss and is super responsive.


Slightly bossy but happy to play out with other dogs, as long as she is in charge.


A beautifully glossy long coat sable.

Aida has proven to be a fabulous mum.


We will look to find Aida a semi-retirement home that can offer her all that she deserves.


Aida is perfectly clean in the house and is very partial to a good sofa!
