Kali's Photo Gallery
Kali is a medium sized, solid black female. Imported from Germany, her pedigree is a virtual "who's who" of solid, old German working lines. Her breeding is heavy in the great Körbelbach dogs, who go back to some of the most influential German working kennels in the history of the breed; Bungalow, Allerswald and Busecker Schloß. She is a granddaughter of the great Blacky vom Neuen Lande, BSP and WUSV world champion. She is also a great-granddaughter of Greif Lahntal, Gildo Körbelbach and Fax vom Haus Bernhardt-Mader. Her pedigree contains such leading producers as Umsa and Mike Bungalow, Caro and Friga Allerswald, Gundo Lierberg, and Quicke Itztal. She is linebred (5-5) on Ignaz vom Oberscholvenerweg, son of the immortal Bernd Lierberg.
Kali is an incredible bitch. Absolutely nothing phases her and her nerves are impeccable. She is an easy dog to be around, with a playful and outgoing personality. While she is somewhat aloof with strangers, she warms up quickly, and is very affectionate with her family. She is a dominant bitch, but she is not dog aggressive and is excellent with children. Even little ones can take food and toys away from her without the slightest fuss. Calm and well behaved in the house, she is always ready to switch gears and work.
Kali's ball, food and hunt drives are insatiable and she has tremendous energy and work ethic. She is a very powerful dog in protection. Her grips are full, firm and calm and her outs are excellent. She loves the fight and will take a great deal of pressure and keep coming back for more. Her obedience is very enthusiastic and she shows a true desire to work with and for her handler. While not particularly handler sensitive, she has a biddable nature and wants to please. She does not display much of the stubbornness that is common in the Körbelbach lines, but certainly has their grip, toughness and sound nerve.
We had high hopes for Kali as a broodbitch, and felt that her character and pedigree would be an outstanding addition to our breeding program. Unfortunately, this was not to be. Despite many attempts, she has proven unable to produce a litter for us. She has been retired and spayed, and remains with us as a beloved companion and "sofa guardian".
