I have been into gsp my whole life! I was born into a family who showed, hunted and bred them since 1950 with the same kennel name I use today. I started off on my own in 1992 by aquiring my own hunting gsp, then moved up to buying a GWP to show but he had some health problems so we couldn't do what we wanted to o so in 1998 I bought a gsp to show he too didn't turn out to be a show dog so I bought another in 1999 and she was PERFECT! Her name was Brie she was every thing I could dream of! She had a wonderful temperament and finish her championship pretty easily. She is my own foundation bitch for my new line of Von Lahrheim GSP's. I now have 3 generations.
