Reza x   
I have always believed in having a strong female for breeding, despite the 50/50 genetic outcome, it is the female that raises the pups and so contributes a bit more and  should be the strongest you can find. My foundation bitch comes from Julia Priest, a well known Breeder and Trainer who has probably forgot more than I will ever know about breeding. Reza was my fourth dog from Julia, the others were trained and placed in police and search and rescue homes, so I had the chance to truly evaluate the strength of the lines. Reza was the one I started using for breeding.   I choose my studs for health, temperament, nerve strength and hunt and fight drives. 

Reza Von Sontausen is my trailing K9.  She comes from Julia Priest who put a TD, GN and BH on her.
Reza’s littermates are SAR K9s (Rocco, owned by Ann Christiansen) and Police K9 Ronin, (Sacramento PD) Rixi, Search and Rescue, Reza Hips ofa good.
