International Champion

Hinterland's Melody



Gonzo x Roxie - DOB: 09/27/94

Melody is a beautifully structured animal, with a superb black and red pigment. She has a plushy coat. Following in her dam Roxie's footsteps, Melody is the sweetest of German Shepherd Dogs. She is very willing to please and sensitive to her human's every whim. She appropriately feels the need to be on the lap, couch, or bed of whomever is in the room gracing them with her presence and overwhelming affection. Our "Dee Dee" is a real sweetheart and people charmer. She is a good mother, whelps easily and is a superb producer of type, disposition and character.  She does carry the long coat factor as seen in our BraVuro Ortello, PT,  her son. She is also the dam of our elegant  SG- rated  Scarlet O'Hara.
