INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION VALIANT VON KISTHA HAUS BH, RN, RA, CD and HAZEL VON HOFFNUNG, Search and Rescue dog in Training, had their puppies on September 30, 2022. These are heavily DDR type with many of our favorite dogs in the pedigree going back to our very first Candle Hill Shepherds, Tag and Max, both Search and Rescue Dogs, and also Cardinal, Piper, and Bristol. We are so excited about this breeding that we plan to keep a female ourselves. Puppies will come in both long and standard coats, with deep rich pigment, black sables with mahogany highlights and even some solid blacks. Temperament should be on the strong side, with the typical trainability of Candle Hill dogs.

Puppies from this litter are DM Clear.

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 evaluated by the OFA or SV 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:
