Skeleton Crew K9 Puppies

Scroll down to see current pictures of the litter born December 17, 2019. Wait list now open for winter 2020 repeat breeding.

We could not be more tickled if we swallowed a feather duster!  Our mating of Tusk Toa Toiora and Freya vom Fuchsstein has been years in the planning.  Our knowledge of the immediate family tree is extensive.  We are breeding for a progression of what we have seen in previous generations:  Strong hunt drives with a determination to pursue even under the most adverse conditions, a desire to bond to handler,  early mental maturity, a bold and positive attitude, willingness to receive training, independent business-like  approach to the task at hand.  Intelligence to know how to use the acute senses of smell, sight and hearing to problem solve in real world applications. A complete lack of belligerence, excessive nervousness or shyness.   
These genetic traits combined with our puppy NIED program should produce some truly outstanding canines.

Tusk Toa Toiora

Tusk is a working Police K9.  He is a certified Patrol Dog , explosives detection K9 and is trained with special operations and marine teams.  He is also an ambassador for the squad, visiting schools and interacting with the public in many capacities.  He lives with his handler and his family who adore him.  Click on his photos to see him visit with some elementary students.


Tusk is one of our pups, coming from our inspiration and foundation bitch, Chipsy vom Calculatorhof.  We are excited to continue her lines through Tusk.

Freya vom Fuchsstein

Freya  comes to us from Spain.  She is exactly what we were looking for in a young bitch to match to Tusk, and our check list was extensive.  Her family tree shows some great dogs including police K9's and world champion Schutzhund dogs.  A click on her photos will show a video "Fun with Freya".

Her adventurous spirit, confidence, exceptional health, and classic lines all combine in a sleek black package that is so very easy on the eyes.  She has a growing fan club, now international.  Freya has obtained her BH/VT in preparation for further IGP titles and also has her SG title for show in structure.  She is pursuing agility and her IGP1.
