Brenda XXXVI | "Chicha"

We were offered the opportunity to import Chicha from Europe and have been delighted to add such a wonderfully tempered and beautiful girl to our program. Upon welcoming her to the USA, it was immediately evident that she had a biddable nature paired with high intelligence; she sought to please us and follow our directions right away, despite the fact that she didn't know English. From that day forth, we greatly enjoyed getting to know our girl who more than proved herself worthy of our breeding program in every aspect of the total GSD.

She is loyal and dependable off-leash, she is kind and personable, and she is appropriately watchful and protective over her family and home. She's brave, happy, and playful, and especially loves her jollyball. Chicha has a beautifully proportioned head, great conformation, correctly set ears, a flowy show coat with the thickest feathered tail we have, and very smooth movement. She's beautiful and knows it! She loves to show off, trotting smoothly with head held high and tail feathers flowing.

Chicha brought a great lineage with her to the USA. View Chicha's full, interactive pedigree here.

She also tested DNA CLEAR of the following known to effect German Shepherds:

  • MDR1 Drug Sensitivity
  • Scott Syndrome (a defect in platelet function leading to impaired secondary hemostasis)
  • Canine Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency (A disorder of white blood cells)
  • Factor VIII Deficiency, Hemophilia A, (Blood clotting disorder)
  • Hyperuricosuria and Hyperuricemia or Urolithiasis (Causes kidney and bladder stones composed of urate)
  • Sly Syndrome (A type of lysosomal storage disease)
  • Achromatopsia (a progressive disorder of the retina)
  • Renal Cystadenocarcinoma and Nodular Dermatofibrosis (A multiorgan syndrome)
  • X-linked Ectodermal Dysplasia Anhidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia (a developmental condition)

She tested as carrier for only one out of the 200+ genetic conditions tested. She is Degenerative Myelopathy N/A—so she will only be paired with studs that are tested DM N/N “clear” and none of her puppies will ever be at risk. This is why we test! We’re thankful that these tests are available to us and also very thankful for the ongoing research that will continue to aid our program. None of Chicha's puppies will have two abnormal genes and therefore be considered “at risk” for any of the above.
