Isis von Hügelblick, IPO1

HD-normal/ED normal

Sometimes things don’t go as planned. Never would I have imagined that due to personal circumstances, that Isis von Hügelblickwould fall back into our hands. Mike Holbrook, the owner of her brother, Ice von Hügelblick, definitely wanted the opportunity to meet her once she was available. We decided to do a co ownership with Mike. Together they did the IPO1. Isis happily resides with the Holbrook’s and is very happy living with her brother and half sister Andra vom casa Arado and romping around Wolfbrook Dog Club with lots of Hügelblick.

Isis came from our large 'I litter' full of outstanding littermates, including Ickky. Ickky was the only American born dog to compete on the USA team for the WUSV Championships in 2013. Not only is Isis as solid nerved as they get, like her mother Baghira von der Riesling Route, but she is as social and confident. Her mother Baghira is the matriarch of Hillview and one of our all time favorite producing females. Her sire is none other than Falk von den Wolfen. 3 X BSP competitor and sire of many LGA, BSP and WUSV competitors.

The moment we arrived at the home of Brigitte Sobek, breeder of Mörfelder Land kennel in Germany, and met Franzi, we loved her energy and personality. The deal was sealed after having the opportunity to meet her half brother, Eyko, while we were there. We feel that Franzi has all the qualities in a female to make an excellent breeding female. She possesses the beauty, intelligence, strong nerves, drives, full grips, clear headedness and the gentleness that makes her excellent with children.

Franzi's pedigree is exceptional. Her dam, Buffy vom Mörfelder Land, produced her half brother, Caro vom Mörfelder Land. Caro won the 2006 Bundesseiger prufung and the WUSV at the very young age of 2 years.

Franzi's sire, Uno vom Stadtfeld, is a highly regarded, proven producer in Germany. He is highly sought after for his substance, power, pigment, drives, and very healthy bloodlines. We have waited patiently for Franzi to come to the states since October 2009. While in Germany we met with Javir vom Talka Marda's owner and trainer, Michaela Knoche. After discussing Franzi's bloodlines, Michaela liked the possible mating between Franzi and Javir vom Talka Marda and we arranged for Franzi to wait in Germany until she could be bred to Javir.

SG Layla von Hugelblick, SchH3, FH (v score of 98 pts), Kkl 1

SV- "a" normal hips and normal elbows

DOB- 10/02/2009

At the tender young age of only 5 weeks, I knew there was something very special about Layla and it was not because she shares her sire's birthday. At 7 weeks, while her siblings were running wild in the kitchen, she was at the refrigerator wanting cheese and asking to perform her sitzs, platzs and work on focus. I had never witnessed anything like it. At about 3 months all by herself she was working on her flip finishes. She was doing her potty #1's and #2's on command also. Six months rolled around and our team, Roland and Sandro came in from Germany to do a seminar. She was done teething so it was time to start some fun bite work. I put her little harness on and took her out on the field to a puppy circle for the first time. She performed like an adult dog, it was quite amazing what a little natural she was. She was doing little courage tests with a rag. Her barking was excellent and most importantly all of her grips were very full and calm. After she was done, Sandro said "This one must come to Germany to be trained, titled and she must be bred".

At a year old more confirmation came when our SV judge from Germany stayed in our home for a week. As soon as he arrived he asked "Where is the little black female from last year?" He saw her when she was only 7 weeks. After watching her out playing and hanging out with her in the house, he couldn't believe she was only a year old. That night he raved about her character, intelligence and conformation as he fed her table food from the dinner table. He wanted to take Layla home, but she was already spoken for.

November 3rd 2010, my husband and I drove to Atlanta with Layla and boarded a plane to Frankfurt, Germany. That weekend we took my little girl to a beautiful little town north of Frankfurt. There she met her new German family, excellent handler Jürgen Rein, his wife and daughter. Layla has little creek running by her exceptional brand new kennel in the back yard that she shares with multiple Sch3, FH male, Daiko vom Baumgarten. She is settled in now and having a blast. We will keep you posted on her progress. We hope that Layla can accomplish great things before she comes back home. Above you can see some videos of her at 15 months.

Not only have her bloodlines produced world competition dogs from around the world, but Leni is a direct descendant of multiple WUSV champions. Two weeks after we purchased Leni, the bloodlines proved themselves once again in Seville Spain at the WUSV. Leni's half brother, Como vom Bonauer Wald won the world championship with a V score of 291 points. Leni's sire is Eros von der Mohnwiese, winner of the 2004 and 2005 WUSV, his sire the very famous producer, Tom van't Leefdaalhof won the 1999 WUSV. Tom's sire, Querry von Haus Antverpa never won, but participated in the WUSV 4 times! Queery's sire Orry von Haus Antverpa won WUSV two times and a FCI world championship. She has multiple BSP competitors on her dam's side, Timmy von der bösen Nachbarschaft, Mink vom Haus Wittfeld, and Gildo vom Körbelbach. Gildo was the producer of many great dogs with the likes of Blacky vom Neuen Lande, WUSV champion and BSP champion, he was the brother to Berry vom Neuen Lande, Leni's great grandsire.

We are fortunate once again for our team in Germany for finding us this spectacular female. We are excited for what the future holds in our breedings with Leni here at Hillview Kennels. She is definitely adding intensity to the family.

She whelped a litter of 8 very healthy, substantial, balanced, and solid nerved puppies,last fall. I had the pleasure of seeing them for myself.

Planka has some of the best working bloodlines in her pedigree, especially in her maternal line. Her dam, Mandy vom Wällerhorst's litter had many schutzhund 3 titled dogs, including Mika vom Wällerhorst a BSP competitor. The sire of that litter was none other than 3 X BSP and WUSV competitor Falk von den Wölfen. Planka's maternal line goes back to the famous BSP V1 Gotthilf von der Kine.

Her sire Elliot von Prevent and grandsire Hutch vom dunklen Zwinger , are very well known, proven studs, with over 300 progeny each, in Germany alone. Hutch is the son of the legendary producer Yoschy von der Döllenwiese.
