Jette is a medium sized, black and tan female with a graceful, athletic build. Her pedigree is packed full of top quality working dogs. Her sire is a Crok vom Erlenbusch son and Mink grandson, and her dam, a Fero daughter, is a BHP3 import from Denmark. The rest of her pedigree boasts strong dogs such as Sagus vom Busecker Schloß, Dax von der Kesmarker Tränke, Gildo vom Körbelbach, Ashra von Stoppenburger Land and Umsa Bungalow.
Jette has solid nerves and a stable, sound temperament. While she is aloof with strangers, she is very affectionate and playful with people she knows. She is calm in the house, and a fireball on the training field. She is a happy dog who loves to work and this attitude can be seen in her animated actions and the exuberance with which she tackles any task set in front of her. She is fun and easy to train as she has an excellent work ethic and a true willingness to please and work with her handler.
Jette's working ability is simply outstanding. At the trial for her SchH1, the presiding judge nicknamed her "Firecracker", and no one could say it isn't appropriate. Jet has limitless ball, prey, hunt and food drive. She shows great focus and drive in obedience, and puts on a very flashy performance. In protection, she hits hard and loves the fight. She will withstand anything the helper can throw at her and keep coming back for more. She shows strong defense and a good deal of real aggression toward the helper. Her hold and barks are very strong and convincing, and her bites are always full and firm with calm grips and carries. Jette's tracking is a joy to watch. She has inherited the natural tracking talent that the Fero lines are renowned for and shows tremendous intensity and concentration on the track. She chuffs along like a locomotive thoroughly investigating every footstep, and always ends a track looking for more. When work time is done, Jet comes home and settles right in. She is an excellent house dog and companion. Very calm and well mannered, she loves to snuggle on the sofa watching TV or play some frisbee and tug. She's truly what the GSD is supposed to be. A tireless worker, who can relax with the family when the work is done.
Tim and Jette had a wonderful time in training and learned a lot together. They earned their SchH1 at the Northcoast Schutzhund Club in Ohio in the fall of 2004. Unfortunately, Jet had fertility problems and was unable to enter our breeding program. She has been spayed and placed with a wonderful family in Michigan where she lives life to the fullest as a beloved family companion and playmate to two young children.
