1. Cambridge, England (Ravi x Ysis)

Mating expected: January 2019; Puppies expected: March/April 2019
Contact: edmond@castlehill-kennels.com 

A very exciting pairing with our female Ysis.  Ysis is arguably one of the most qualified female German Shepherds in the UK. Having competed in both England and Germany nationally, and internationally in 2015. She has already had a litter in Germany where all puppies have been xrayed with perfect health. 

Ravi del Lupo Nero is a young dog, just 3 years old and soon to be (I’m sure) one of the top competing dogs in Germany. From owners and breeders that are extremely experienced and accomplished – it would be too long to list all their achievements here.

Ravi is from terrific family lines, and having seen Ravi’s grandmother (Nell) – knowing the mother line is strong and healthy working lines from both sides, puts a lot of faith in this breeding.  There is no line-breeding in 5 generations. 5-6 line bred to Yoschy von der Döllenwiese

These puppies will be suitable for any purpose, and we will look for, beyond everything else, loving homes.  Contact: edmond@castlehill-kennels.com
