Today we opened up a new page for our puppy "Macho". He is a progeny
of Olympia and Gino. In the first 8 weeks he developed into a beautiful and
very big puppy and most of all he developed into a little "Macho".
First we had plans to keep him for ourselves, but we do have little "Lucky"
at this time to raise, so we thought it would be best for someone to have him,
who does have the time for him to bond with him and raise him with love and
discipline, which we think, he does need. We believe, that he needs to be in
the hands of someone with experience when it comes to puppies with a strong
character, which we believe "Macho" has.
When Dagmar decided for this combination Olymia/Gino she wished for puppies
with the kind of looks and body structure Macho has. Unfortunately his one
brother and one sister did not make it due to the fact, that all three puppies
were so big at the time of birth. Maybe next time - most likely we will have
one more litter with our Olympia in 2017 - we will have more luck and not so
big puppies will be born.
Andreas, our long time friend, we thought was this person, who would be
able to guide "Macho". Since the loss of his beloved Barrett named
"Simon" last year, he did not want to have another dog of his own
anymore, besides his "Charly", but when he seen "Macho"
for the first time a few days ago, he fall in love with him right away. The
bond between them two was there from the first minute they met. Andreas, just
like Hundemama loves the kind of dogs which do challenge their owners and they
both believe, that Macho is one of them. Macho did get along with his elderly
dog "Charly" right away, so there was nothing in the way for "Macho"
to move in with Andreas and Marion.
Both of them agreed, that "Macho" will be primarly their family
dog and if happens that he will have the qualities to become a "sire",
Andreas will do everything for him to accomplish the requirements of our club
Andreas and Hundemama both know, that it is extremely important for Macho
to grow up slowly, which means to keep his weight down and to make sure, that
the puppy will not get too much exercise, that he will not be trained at any
dog place until he is full grown and that he will not play with other dogs
too wild. Especially we see these kind of wild play when owners take their
puppies to these puppy meetings. Too many different puppies play together and
injuries can easily happen. We do not believe in this. There is always danger
to a puppy as well, when another dog is in the house. Especially a young dog.
A young dog loves to play and will animate the puppy to play along and in most
cases the play will be too rough for a puppy for his soft joints.
From now until Macho has grown up we will update this page with new pictures
from time to time .
Lots of pictures were made of Macho already during his first 10 weeks. Enjoy!
Update in 2020: Gino`s son Macho and Tyson`s grandson has developed
into an extreme beautiful and masculine looking sire. His coat did get exremely
long over the past year. He also has a beautiful "lyon mane" just
like his grandfather Tyson used to have. If everything goes according to our
plans, he will be the sire of one of our dams in 2020. He has everything what
we are looking for in a GSD, especially his temperament. He goes regularly
with his owner to an old people`s home and they truly enjoy him. Our Gino can
be proud of this son
