Becker is my personal house dog, and is already titled in various venues. He typifies the style of dog we received from the Rush x Touché cross. He is very willing, medium soft to the handler; bites well, not frantic, is social with dogs and people, and will also chill out when appropriate! He also shows the head and size we received from that cross.
Becker was ranked the #5 Dutch Shepherd in the country in the UKC Top Ten Breed and Dog Standings in 2008. Becker is also the Number 3 Dutch Shepherd SIRE on the UKC TOP 10 Producers List based on progeny titles earned.
He is an excellent personal protection dog; remaining calm and collected with visitors at the kennel and with other dogs, yet remaining "ever watchful" of my whereabouts.
Becker is a heavy hitter during protection work and is pictured here taking down a decoy at the MI K-9 Challenge in October 2011.
