PEDIGREE & OFA… Click HERE to see Ronin’s father Javir vom Talka Marda, in obedience and HERE to watch him in protection at the 2009 WUSV. The power on this male is incredible.
Ronin is a large masculine black & tan, long stock coat male with incredible substance and bone paired with beautiful conformation, extreme dark pigment and a wonderful temperament. He is a very intense dog, with incredible drive, tracking skills and presence in protection that shows a power not just for show. Good possession but clear head. Excellent full hard grips and intense guarding.
Ronin retired from the Hillsboro, Oregon Police department in 2016, where he attained an impressive record of apprehensions. Representing the Hillsboro Police Department at the 2013 & 2014 Police K9 Trials, HPD K9 Ronin won several gold medals from both events, with first place in the agility course and master protection, both years. K9 Ronin also placed third in the fastest dog competition, clocked at around 27 mph.
Ronin is a son of Javir Vom Talka Marda, IPO3. Javir was a 4xBSP Participant: 2007-3rd place, 2008-1st, 2009 2nd, and 2010 18th place. Javir also is a 3x LGA winner in 2007, 2008, and 2010, as well as a 3x WUSV Participant in 2007- 11th place, 2008- 3rd, and 2009-4th.
Echo Vom Alabama Police K9 (Echo)
CGC, HOT | OFA Hips Good | Elbows Normal | DM Clear
PEDIGREE… Click HERE to see Echo’s father, V Vrisco Niox (BH, IPO3, ZPS1, ZVV3, ZPO1, Kkl1) , in obedience and HERE to watch him in defense at the 2014 Czech World Championship. The power on this male is incredible.
Imported from the Czech Republic; Echo brings top breeding and exceptional biddability to the table, on top of impressive protection & nosework. Her temperament is incredible, being very sweet and silly until it is time to work; then her over the top drives kicks in. Her obedience is high energy and prancey and you can tell she really loves to please her handler, and what she does. She loves to work and is very intense and methodical. Her protection is excellent, with high aggression, calm, full bite and speed matched by few. Extreme hunt and food drives, she’s a true natural at nose work and detection. Due to an unfortunate injury, Echo can no longer train in protection work, but her pedigree and work ethics speak for themselves, while we continue concentrating on scent work.
Her sire, Vrisco Viox, impressed me with his temperament, ability and drive paired with a great “off switch” he produces in his progeny. I find this is too often missed in breeding working dogs. I strive to have and produce balanced, high drive, versatile dogs that can do it all but relax when it’s not time to work.
