“Kip” Gonzo vom Team Barrett CGC, RN, VBN is the stud dog we had imported from the outstanding Long Coated German Shepherd Breeding Program in Germany, Haus vom Barrett. In his pedigree are many of their Foundation Dogs which set their program apart. Chloe Von Hoffnung similarly has many of our own Foundation Dogs in her pedigree, including International Champion Cardinal Vom Sparthof BH, RN, RA, CD, THDN, CGC, International Champion Jake vom Kanas CD, BH, RN, JJ-N, JJ-S, and International Champion Keeper Von Hoffnung RN, BH, CD. The combination of these great blood lines is expected to bring exceptional puppies in both beauty and character. All the puppies are expected to be black and red long coats. We look forward to more of the endearing temperament many love in our dogs: the sort of dog a burglar will run from but a child can hug.

Our own International Champion Valiant vom Kistha Haus CD, RN, RA, BH and Spark von Hoffnung are planned to be bred this Spring. Valiant is our wonderful powerful yet gentle, intelligent and trainable stud dog, with lines going back to All vom Osterburg Quell and Lord vom Gleisdreieck. He has both working dogs and Service/Therapy dogs in his pedigree. Similarly, Spark is granddaughter to our own International Champion Cardinal vom Sparthof THDN, RN, RA, CD, BH, CGC, also a certified Therapy Dog. Spark’s sire is our own International Champion Keeper Von Hoffnung RN, BH, CD, and her dam is our beautiful import Shade Team Ulmich. This breeding will produce puppies of both standard and long coats, dark sable and black and red. They should have the loving and protective temperament Candle Hill Dogs are known for, “the sort of dog a burglar will run from but a child can hug”.

All puppies come microchipped, having had routine deworming, and their first vaccination.  We carefully screen the parents of our puppies for DM (Degenerative Myelopathy), so that  according to the OFA no puppies will be at risk for this disease.  Parents of our puppies have been screened against hip and elbow dysplasia, having had their hips and elbows x-rayed and certified to be sure that they have healthy bone structure to pass onto their offspring.


 We love to hear from you.  Feel free to give us a call:
