Re: Drago von patriot

Just came across a kennel in TN that is breeding to him. Are you familiar with him?

Re: Drago von patriot

Drago is with Gary Hanrahan I don't think Pike is here (yet?) I have friends in Belgium that bred to Drago but like most of his pups are still young. Looking at his breed record he hasn't been bred to some of the top working kennels as I would like to see. I surely don't want to cast doubts about him though. I always check to who is breeding to what as it seems something as an indicator for me.....

Re: Drago von patriot

We bred to Drago with our Sid vh Pixner daughter- he was on our short list in Europe and we have been watching for a while. Really happy that he came to the states and that Gary and Pam have him. Puppies are only a few days old, but like what we are seeing....

Lucky - Gary and Patrick came up for our helper seminar with James Laney and brought Drago. Drago was worked on Patrick and James.

I was able to get some great fotos of him....

He is a strong presence, attitude, hard hitting. He is a handful - reminds me of dogs from a few years back (the group of dogs from 2000-2003/4).

Re: Drago von patriot

I've never seen a pup from Drago, but Gerben strongly recommended that we buy a son from him when we were looking for a gsd for Ariel last year.

Re: Drago von patriot

We have a 5 month Drago pup at our Club, nice longer, strong build can a bit of an a*shole already. My friend has also bought a 14wk pup which arrived last week, it got off the Ferry Boat, into a dark car park after travelling for 11hrs and kicked off at a passer by!
That said Drago is one of the most used dogs in Germany/Europe recently, I appreciate he's been sold for $40k but their is a lot of reputation and little evidence from the many offspring that he can reproduce his qualities. My gut feeling is he can as long as the right bitches are used.

Re: Drago von patriot

Do you know to whom he was bred with with those two dogs? There is always the other side which I personally regard as important, thanks......How was my Queens English

Since we are into the king's english: "can be a bit of an a*shole already;" "kicked off at a passer by!" and are you saying there is a lot of talk but no evidence regarding whether he can reproduce his qualities? I have no idea how a 5 month old can be an a*shole and what that means 14 weeks and a tad defensive????? How about some of the more universal terms.
