We are ecstatic to add Willy von Babylon to our breeding program! Willy arrived safely from Germany in January. He is 3 years old, IGP 2, V rated and HD/ED: Normal.
His great, great, great, great grandma was Jason and I's personal dog when we first got married! Our intimate knowledge of the pedigrees of our dogs are a crucial part of our breeding program. Having seen Willy's ancestry and to know what they have produced over the last 15 years gives us confidence in Willy and his future offspring being an integral part of our breeding program.
His pedigree is chalked full of some of our favorite VA dogs over the years: Team Marlboro Hilton, Yuri vom Osterberger Land, Mentos vom Osterberger-Land, Remo vom Fichtenschlag, Pacco vom Langenbungert, Yak vom Frankengold, Hoss vom Larchenhain, Zamp vom Thermodos, just to name a few.
Willy is passionate for play. Can we say BALL! 🏀 ⚽️
He loves kids, people and treats. We are love what he produces in our puppies.

Stella received the V 26 rating at the 2019 BSZS Seiger Show in Germany. Breeding a dog who is a DM carrier is a something we weigh carefully. Because the sire of the litter is DM clear, it is safe to breed Stella and know that she will not produce puppies with DM. We have a responsibility as a breeder to weigh the entire picture and not just one facet. Stella's quality, temperament, bloodlines are not worth removing from the gene pool because of one facet. According to PawPrint Genetics DM "is inherited in a recessive fashion with incomplete penetrance meaning that a dog must inherit two copies of the mutation (one from each parent) in order to develop DM."

We were honored to add Stella to our home, family and breeding program in the spring of 2021. Stella was born, raised, trained, shown and received all her titles and certifications in Germany prior to us importing. Stella is has proven herself as a protection dog, a trustworthy family companion and an amazing mom. Her temperament is unmatched. Everyone loves her, including our veterinarian and his staff.
We are excited for V 26 - Stella vom Zellwaldrand's litter with V Willy von Babylon!
