My late wife Anissa and I came into the world of German Shepherds in 1976. We began with obedience and the showing of our dogs in Open and Championship Breed shows. By the early 80’s our home bred dogs were achieving CC’s, Res CC’s and Junior warrants.
We moved to our current premises in 1986; Anissa and I had a vision for the future of Breedr Gems kennels, we excitedly put our vision into action and began to build the future of the Breedr Gems’ German Shepherds. We wanted our name to be recognized for it’s outstanding breed line, temperament, health and winning dogs… slowly that began to happen.
Sadly, Anissa passed away and I questioned whether I could, or would, continue without him. But the enormous passion I had for the GSD could not be discarded and I knew that Anissa would not have wanted all the hard work we had done together to be forgotten, so I continued to finish the journey that Anissa and I had started together.
Very soon I was producing Champions and Breedr Gems’ Sensii was one of the best, but she was not the last. I have since produced many others, Precious Flower, Furry Fury, Centaur, What If to name a few. As well as home breeding, I have also imported my outstanding dogs. One of which was Vitorino Kennels’ 007. Vitorino’s bloodlines are a combination of Italian and German, his Sire was the famous Italian stud, Ricano’s Strong Bow. Strong Bow is of German origin and was bred by the world renowned Wienerauzer Kennels. This excellent combination of bloodlines was an opportunity I could not resist!
Throughout the years I have kept in touch with people who have purchased from me, either by their owners boarding them with me, or just paying me a visit – I enjoy seeing the dogs as they grow and adapt to their new environments.
Even after all these years I still have the passion and enthusiasm I had back in the 70’s for the German Shepherd and Breedr Gems Kennels continues to grow from strength to strength
