West Vom Hazak

West Vom Hazak is an all-black European Showline puppy in our foster program! She is a confident, intelligent, happy girl that is strikingly beautiful with a very sweet temperament. She loves to adventure with her foster family and is thoroughly loved and enjoyed. We've waited years to add a black showline to our program and West has exceeded even our highest expectations! She is superb for not only the reasons of being a healthy, well-temperamented showline and coming from a long lineage of dogs with proven health and quality temperaments; she also has well above-average excellent bone and overall conformation with a desirable broad head. Her personality is wonderful; she's a fun and playful sweetheart, but also protective, brave, strong, and capable. She has a strong on-switch and drive for play, but can also cuddle on the couch.

West's motherline has proven longevity with sound temperaments. Her mother is a therapy dog (CGC TDI THD TKA) as well as her grandmother (TDI, SG), and her great grandmother (TDI, V, Sch2, AD, CGC)! Her great great grandmother only recently passed away at almost 15 years of age! Regarding her fatherline, West is granddaughter to SG3 BSZS Margman Yes! Her gorgeous father is V1 Hurricane Lemiselburg IPO3 Kkl1. Her pedigree also includes notable dogs like V39 BSZS 2012 V1 Norsk Vinner Utstilling 2013 Erik vom Nordteich IPO 3, and 2x VA1 Remo vom Fichtenschlag SCHH3 IPO3!
