Hugo von Erz Hugel (Hugo)
Hugo is the son of our Dutch and Aura. He is the new generation and we could not be happier with the magnificent boy he is. He has been raised by our teenaged son almost since birth. Hugo is an obedient dog, trustworthy in public around strange people and dogs. He has an imposing presence but is very sweet to his family and friends. Hugo's lineage is quite impressive and consists of dogs known for their willingness to work/please their humans
and improving health/vigor.
Hugo is the dog that would have been bred years ago if there was not so much divison among breeders, including the former communist countries known for producing top working dogs such as East Germany and Czechoslovakia. Hugo is not a new version or type of German Shepherd, he is a continuation of the real German Shepherds that have been so difficult to find given the current division and subdivision of the breed.
When someone says "working line Shepherds are not good family dogs", they should meet Hugo. Proper breeding and raising can give you the type of German Shepherd that built
the breed reputation. No Compromise.
