Merjuke's Amazing Faith 


Faye slightly soggy after playing in the snow with her friends in 2013

This was my 4th ever European show line litter. 


But as my 2nd litter's only female was a long coat (Milly) who at the time could not be successfully shown due to her coat type (in the last couple of years this has since changed which is why you can now seen long-coats being successfully shown) this was technically my:


3rd ever show line litter


My 1st litter was a litter of 1 (Hope who is Delilah's mother) & my 3rd litter contained a female (La La) who unfortunately became too big to continue showing.

This was also the second 2nd  (La La was from the 1st) show line generation that I had developed.

Faye is the litter sister of Sadie and Troy.

Faye's wins so far includes:

1st place & Best Puppy in Breed & Puppy Group 2

1st place & Best Puppy in Breed & Best of Breed

VP Graded

Faye's verbal critiques:

"All of the pups (which included her 2 litter siblings & Cleo a Riot pup) are very nice with very nice movement, I am surprised how good the pup's movement is in terms of their ages, all of the pups had very good feet and gentle sloping pasterns which are very important to me as I have a sledging breed, they also all had correct fronts, sometimes this breed are loose as a breed but she is very sound, I love her very thick coat especially in comparison to the 2nd place female in her class, she has a better upper arm placement than her mother, she was the best put together out of all of the pups that were present, she is very pretty, she won BPIB as out of all the puppies present she had the soundest hocks and movement on the away" All rounder

"Although my preference is for the Old English type of GSD this female has a very good top-line of the sort that appeals to me with no signs of roach whatsoever.  She also has very sound hocks, and out of all the dogs of this breed that I have seen today she is the soundest on the away.  She is a pretty female that is very well put together including having very well shaped feet and pasterns, and she looks to be very promising" Breed Championship judge who prefers the Old English type

"Very beautiful pretty girl, perfectly sound and true on the away and back, excellent beautiful side movement." All rounder

"She has what a lot within this breed do not have which is very sound hocks.  Just watch her on the away you can't fail to see how sound and strong her hocks are" Breed judge

"She is very well put together with a better upper arm placement than her mother.  However she needs to mature and get rid of her puppy coat as this will hold her back.  Her coat is so fuzzy at this moment in time that it is making her look like she needs more length of leg, but if you feel her she is correctly in proportion, and so her immature puppy coat is affecting her profile and top-line as it is sticking out all over. She also needs to loose some weight as she is too fat, and this is further affecting her profile.  She has very sound strong hocks and naturally falls into a stance" Breed

"Correct angulations, including good lay of upper arm and croup, strong hocks" Breed championship judge

Faye's written critiques:

"7mth bitch very feminine with typical puppy coat quite pleasing in carriage and overall shape, Good head very alert expression Strong ears good fore quarters straight front good top line held on move good hindquarters." Sue Smith (Zeelukzak)

Faye has:



Faye is:



Faye's litter sibling's BVA hip & elbow scores include: 9 & 0 elbows, and 10 & 0 elbows.

Faye's litter brother is haemophilia tested clear, and Faye's litter sister is cardiology tested clear.


Faye adores both playing & her food, and she will happily work for either reward.



SG1 Champion Conbhairean Waro

7 CC & 2 RCC

Group 2 (Richmond Championship show)

2012 British Adult Seiger

2010 British Youth Seiger

Reserve Top dog 2011 (only beaten by 4 points by Champion Crufts Group 1 winner Elmo)

Crufts qualified for life


Hips: A stamp normal

Elbows: A stamp normal

Haemophilia & PD tested: clear


Bred by a Scottish top Championship kennel who have bred the highest ever British winning male GSD in the German Seiger (2011).

Despite this dog & other top winning dogs not being campaigned within the UK dad's breeders still managed to obtain Top GSD kennel & breeder 2011, top GSD puppy 2011, Top GSD puppy male & Top GSD puppy female 2011, top GSD dam 2011, 3rd top GSD female (2nd place was Sadie / Faye / Troy's dad's 1/2 sister). 


Although dad's breeders did not take the 2011 top sire ironically this position was won by Sadie / Faye / Troy's Grandfather (their dad's own father) giving them links to all of the UK's 2011 top winning spots.

Dad's UK Champion (with 3 CC and 2 RCC) litter sister who was the 3rd top winning 2011 UK female (beaten to 2nd place by her Champion & top German winning 1/2 sister) & top female 2010 at Essington club and she has a BVA hip score of 6 & BVA elbow score of 0.

Dad is the cousin of the highest ever British winning male GSD in the German Seiger (2011 & 2012).

Dad's litter siblings hip scores include: BVA 6, 9, 11

Dad's litter siblings elbow scores include: 0, 0

Dad's litter brother is also hemophilia & PD tested clear.

Dad has produced the following hip BVA scores: 10, 11, 12, 12, 14, 15, 16

Dad has produced the following elbow BVA scores: 6 x 0

We used Waro several days before he took his 1st CC.  It was nice to see our confidence in him as a potential top winning dog pay off.

This is Faye's story so far:

We decided to have a 2nd litter from Hope when the daughter we kept from her 1st  litter became too big to continue showing with. 


We had tried a verity of breeding tactics within our only other 3 pure European show line litters (1 of which contained a singleton AKA Hope, a 2nd whose only female was a long-coat AKA Milly Hope's 1/2 sister, and our 3rd  litter whose mother was Hope that contained a female that became too big) including discussing current males within the UK with some of the most successful of show line kennels, looking at dogs and lines that were consistent top producers whilst trying to choose a descendent that offered potential for aspects relating to health (etc.) and temperament & confirmation attributes we were looking for, and lines that combined extremely successfully within Germany in terms of the German Seiger (for example I thought that VA1 Yasko and VA1 Zamp lines would combine to produce a dog that would appeal to all judges within the UK, and a later date Champion Elmo went onto prove this thought to be right by not only becoming a Champion but by winning multiple groups & Best in Shows, Group 1 & Group 3 at Crufts, etc.).


This time I decided to look closer at a UK kennel that had developed a dam line that time and time again consistently produced top European show line winners both within the UK and Germany.  A kennel’s strength is often based around the quality of their females ability to produce. 


The kennel at the time had 3 VERY nice males available at stud.  One had produced the highest ever winning male bred by a British kennel at the German Seiger, another was a UK Champion & Vice British Seiger who had also been successful within Germany, and a 3rd was a young male whom I believed was destined to take top honours (a couple of days after we used him he went onto to take his 1st CC before later being made into a Champion).  One of the top producing males had a beautiful commanding presence and far reaching fore-movement alongside other very favourable characteristics (pigmentation, etc.) but although he had produced beautifully for them he contained none of their dam’s lines.  The second was no less of an impressive male, there was a rare option of him being in the country just at the right time, and he contained one of their dam lines that their success had been built on.  But his sire lines were similar to lines we had tried before in our 2nd ever pure European show line litter & I wanted to try a different direction.


The 3rd  male was a youngster and his progeny were extremely young, and I had not yet seen any of them within the show rings.  But he contained their beautiful strong producing dam line, and his sire line was also a gorgeous one.  This male’s father for example had produced a beautiful UK Champion who had also been extremely successful also within Germany (this female was also one that time and time again had beaten Hope as a puppy). 


In addition to this the 3rd male had A stamp normal hips & elbows, was haemophilia & PD tested clear & he was a British Youth Seiger.  He was also a very good looking male of a correct size with a beautiful head which included dark black mask pigmentation (something Hope would benefit from) alongside beautiful red pigmentation, and a very thick coat.  In addition to this he had good proportions, upper arm and croup placement, etc.


I hoped that my lines would benefit from the injection of these top producing lines alongside producing a version of Hope with more pigmentation and a better upper arm placement whilst keeping her virtues.


Hope went onto have 8 beautiful puppies of which 2 were long-coated (a boy and a girl) and 6 were short-coated (2 males and 4 females).  The males included Big fluffy bunny, Greenie, and Troy.  The females included Faye, little fluffy bunny, Sadie, pinkie, and silver.


The fluffy bunnies were gorgeous.  But I was not in a position to keep a puppy for the sake of falling in love with it alone, and so I had to with my heart breaking let them go into pet homes.


Although we made a decision to retain Troy in the back of my mind was the fact that I thought that the females were in fact the best in the litter. Female classes are by far often the biggest and the competition can be very very close and very hot.  Males can often have lesser numbers within the breed classes BUT for a male to be a top winner he has to be VERY nice.  The fact that the females looked to be the best, and the fact that you should always keep the best even if you originally wanted the opposite sex (which was true in our case as we wanted a male) played on my mind and so I decided to keep an open mind on the females.


I loved little fluffy bunny’s prey drive and focus, but she was a fluffy bunny.  Sadie resembled her mum a lot both in drives and overall confirmation, but ironically at the time she would not naturally stop in a natural stance (something which she later perfected just a few weeks later) which is a characteristic that I both look for and select for.  She was deeper in red pigmentation and smaller than her mother was at the same age which were 2 characteristics that made her look a bit more promising than her mother at the same age.  But I already had a Hope.  I did not need another very slightly improved version of Hope, and so I decided against retaining Sadie.  Silver female was the smallest with the thickest coat, and she had such a pretty sweet face from birth, but she had one confirmation area that did not appeal to me and so I dismissed her on the basis of this.  Pinkie had the blackest face, the deepest red, naturally stopped in stance, was one of the females with the best bone, had correct breadth (fore-quarters and hind quarters), and a well placed croup.  But her upper arm placement & head was not as perfect as Faye’s was & Pinkie looked to be a little leggy in profile.  Ironically at the time I was concerned about size as Hope had produced too big last time, but this later would turn out to be not an issue with this sire and ironically Faye would greatly benefit from having more length of fore-leg.


So ironically even though I still  believe that Faye has the best overall confirmation in the litter on the basis of my concerns on size alone it is possible that the puppy with the most potential to win at shows (as although Faye looks perfectly in proportion at 7 months of age she currently needs just a bit more height via more length of leg which is something Pinkie looked to have & of course Faye would benefit further within the show ring by having the deeper red pigmentation that Pinkie had as this is an aspect that 'catches a judge's eye') has gone into a pet home in which she is loved to bits but will never be shown.


Faye had caught my eye from birth, but several weeks into her life I had chosen to dismiss retaining her as she was the biggest in the litter, and I was concerned that Hope had once again produced a puppy that had the potential to become too big.


Faye was the bossiest puppy in the litter, she had the best head in the litter, she had the second deepest red pigmentation in the girls (Pinkie being the best & Troy was also deeper than Faye), she would naturally stop in stance with her correctly shaped feet pointing forwards and her hock beautifully straight, her upper arm placement was the best out of the girls (although Troy still had more fore-reach than her), her proportions looked correct, and her coat looked very thick.


When a breed Championship judge came to my house and looked at the litter in the madness that is all the pups wanting out at the same time she somehow switched place with Greenie (who she was very similar to in overall shape) as one of the ‘boys’.  It was not until I went over to her that I realised her cheeky escape, and upon learning she was a girl the Championship breed judge immediately stated that I should 100% retain her.  My concerns of size were dismissed as a gamble with any sized puppy, and so I decided to take a risk with running her on whilst at the time thinking that there would be a large risk that she would be more a potential brood IF she retained everything and passed her hips and elbows than a potential show dog.


Ironically it turned out that dad had not produced way over top-sized pups with Hope in addition to  Faye not developing into the biggest pup. Sadie the smallest pup quickly turned within a few weeks to becoming the biggest out of her and Faye further showing how unreliable puppy size at 8 week of age can be (which is something that we were previously aware of, but Faye just further highlighted this concept). 


Faye went to a couple of open shows prior to her first breed Championship show where we hoped to obtain a grading under a visiting European judge.


At the open shows she could not move past people without being complimented upon both her nature shape confirmation and movement.  This was by breed judges, non breed judges, judges who liked the old English type only, judges who only liked the German type etc.


She was strongly complimented not only on her non exaggerated top-line which was described as being level, but also on her very strong and correct hock movement.


However Faye as is typical of her lines was very slow maturing, and when it came around to her 1st breed Championship show I was faced with the dilemma of entering her or not.  Not only had she only been to one breed show training class (due to their availability / timing of the year), but she still had her puppy coat.  To put it mildly she was as fluffy as a Samoyed, and in comparison to matured correctly adult coated youngsters she stuck out like a sore thumb.  Also as I do not like to over work a young puppy risking hip wear and tear over possible improved muscular development and show placements, and as I do not mind my youngsters being a bit rolly polly whilst they are still babies for a breed show ring she was rather over weight.  This is not a characteristic that does you any favours within the show ring, but for me she is still a baby and at the end of the day this was only a minor puppy class.


However I decided that as the show was not a million miles away and the entry fees had already been paid that I may as well get her grading before then keeping her out of the Championship breed ring only until her adult coat came through.  Within the ring the judge commented on her coat which would prevent a higher place, and I was informed that she would have done a lot better if only she had matured sooner / not been so fluffy.  I totally understood and 100% respected her position on the basis of her coat even if in some ways it was rather disappointing on the basis of this alone to see her behind dogs with lesser confirmation attributes alongside hearing the verbal critique of the judge stating for example a higher placed female had ‘loose hocks’.  I had hoped loose hocks would be something that a judge would try and steer away from in light of our existing problems, and that her highly commended hock movement would be one feature that would especially go in her favour.  But on the plus side she got the highest grading possible for a puppy of her age (as did her sister), and so I can’t really grumble.

Line breeding and In-Breeding

There is NO in-breeding in Faye's 5 generation pedigree.

Faye is line bred on two very famous top winning & producing dogs.

This line breeding occurs in her 5th generation of her pedigree.

This means that 2 different dogs appear on more than one occasion in the 5th generation of Faye’s pedigree.


This also means that IF a dog from Faye’s litter went onto have progeny that there would be NO line-breeding in their puppy’s 5 generation pedigree.


The two dogs that Faye is line bred on include:




VA1 Ursus is a dog that is renowned for producing not only beauty, but also brains.

VA1 Ursus is behind a LOT of top winning worldwide dogs (too many to mention below).

For example Ursus is the father of a World Champion, Double German Seiger, and Junior Seiger SCH3 A stamp normal Yasko.

Yasko sired UK Champions (i.e. CH Benny who himself is the sire of UK Champions & CH Ice & CH Elliot).

Yasko is also the father of VA5 SCH3 Boa & Double VA3 & Vice Junior Seigerin SCH3 FH IPO3 Erasmus.

Yasko is the father of Reserve Junior Seigerin & Double Vice Seiger (CH) SCH3 IPO3 Nicos (father of 2 x VA3 & Junior Seigerin SCH3 Viana & VA10 SCH3 Celin.

Yasko is the father of the World Champion, Double Seiger, Vice Seiger, Junior Seiger SCH3 Larus.

Larus is the father of VA1 SCH3 Xara.

Larus is also the sire of UK Champions such as Phillip (who is also a NZ CH & he has sired UK Champions Zora & Oddyssey & Crufts BOB winner Lesko) & Renata (who herself sired Champion Jacky) & a British Youth Seiger Ronaldo.

Larus is also the Great-Grandfather of the highest ever winning GSD at the German Seiger (SCH3 A stamp normal V4 Uno) bred by a British kennel to the best of our knowledge. 

Ursus is also the father of VA1 & VA2 Tabata SCH2.

Ursus is the father of VA7 & Junior Reserve Seiger SCH3 Ghandi  (sire of VA5 SCH3 Agassi & VA6 SCH2 Benny). Ghandi was also the sire of a SCH1 male (Figo) who was imported to the UK & who produced a BH UK Champion (Kandi) & an Irish Youth Seigerin (Rio) & British Puppy Seiger Figo.

Ursus is the father of VA8 & Junior Seigerin Zambia SCH3.

Ursus is the father of VA1 (DK) & Junior Seiger SCH3 IPO3 BHP2 FH1 Yoker.



VA4 Enzo is another dog who is praised for his working ethics as well as his beauty.


He is the father of the Vice Seigerin SCH3 Hips A stamp normal Xantia.

Xantia when placed to VA1 Zamp produced a UK Champion SCH1 Daira A stamp normal.  Daira had a litter to Faye’s Grandfather (Floro) & she herself produced 2 TOP current winning UK daughters (one of which is a UK Champion who also went SG11 at the German Seiger alongside being a British Seigerin & Youth Seigerin & Group 2 winner & multiple BPIS winner, etc.).

Enzo is also the father of VA5 Nero SCH3 Hips A stamp normal.

Enzo is also the father to VA1 (DK & SP) Yello SCH3 A stamp normal who himself sired VA6 Nando SCH3 (who himself sired VA6 Mentos SCH3), etc.

Enzo has produced an Irish (Angus BVA hip score total 6) and UK (Schifo BVA hip score total 13) Champion.  Angus himself went onto produce a Champion.

Enzo also had a UK daughter (BVA hip score total 13) who went on herself to produce a Crufts BOB SCH3 winner (hips BVA total 6 & elbows BVA total 0).

He is also behind other top winning UK dogs whom themselves have gone onto produce UK Champions.

Enzo was also the 2003 UK top producing sire

The kennel club states that  Faye's genetic coefficient value is: 4.2%

Depending upon who Faye's siblings were placed to in the future their progeny genetic coefficient could be as little as 0.0%, less than / the same as / more than their own.

Faye’s 4 Generation Pedigree


In 2016 at 4 ½ years of age Faye still does not have a litter to her name.

I have subsequently made a decision to never have any puppies from Faye despite her having good hips and perfect elbows, a gorgeous pedigree, some confirmation show results (which were only limited due to me having a break from the confirmation show ring), highly desirable confirmation attributes, and despite her being the pick of her litter.
