GCH Nevars Polaris Temerity (Axel) was born on June 9, 2011. He was bred by Lyn Stuby (Nevar) and Amy Issleib (Temerity). His sire is CH Xitamiz Moltaz and his dam is CH Adel Irrestible Temerity of Nevar, RN. After researching the breed for nearly ten years we felt the quality was sufficiently improved for us to bring one home.
Axel is full of energy but easy to train. He is a serious dog with ring presence and great physical strength. Axel is up for everything but loves to spend hours chasing squirrels in the yard. We may start our own line of German Pinschers when the right bitch is available. For now we are enjoying this breed new to us.
German Pinschers are shown in the Working Group and at a maximum 20" at the withers, are the second smallest dogs in that group.
German Pinschers have the same good looks as a Doberman but are not a smaller version of that breed. They are the older breed and were used to develop the Doberman. Many people familiar with Working dogs regard this smallest member of the Working group as a terrier in temperament. This couldn't be farther from the truth. While he has high prey drive he lacks the single-mindedness common to most of the Terrier breeds.
There are four approved colors of German Pinschers: Black and red, red, Isabella (fawn) and blue. According to long-time breeders the black dogs tend to be more reserved while the reds are more outgoing, almost silly. No matter what color they need continuous training and mental stimulation.
