Varna z Pohranicni straze was imported by Sapphire Shepherds from the Czech Republic. This wonderful female was not up for commercial sale. I purchased Varna privately out of the well know working dog breeding program owned by the former head of genetics for the z Pohranicni straze government kennel. Varna was one of the last females to be raised in the world famous z Pohranicni straze kennel. Bred at a time when dogs at this kennel where still produced to the true type of working Czech Border Patrol dog's.

Varna was my constant shadow. Whenever I hear the phrase ”this dog would died for his master” I think of Varna. Varna produced my excellent female, Rhea of Sapphire Mountain, who produced Jaxon and Zoot of Sapphire Mountain. I was very fortunate to get Varna and to still have her line available to in my kennel!

A female with perfect boning and flawless temperament, Varna had great social character and was very controllable. Her working drives were very high with very strong retrieve and protection. Varna exhibited excellent working instincts and performed with speed, strength and accuracy! (look at her videos). Varna was an extremely unique and valuable breeding female, due to the fact that not only did she come from a dysplasia-free litter where all littermates possessed 0/0 (excellent) hips and elbows, her mother Darka did as well! Darka z Pohrancini straze: ZVV1, 0/0, dobry, 5CU1/P was one of the most intensively used breeding females in the famous z Pohranicni straze kennel. She was well known for producing litters that were characteristic with perfect hips and elbows, strong working drives and balanced character type. At 8 years of age, she was still in excellent shape and able to produce healthy litters. She was a true example of a world-class foundation breeding female. Varna passed these desired qualities and valuable characteristics to her progeny here at Sapphire Shepherds. Varna was an exception producer for me.

Varna’s bloodlines ensured that she produced working progeny that was very healthy, versatile and successful. Varna was the daughter of the great stud dog Argo z Travnickova dvora and the granddaughter of Arys z Travnickova dvora, who was the Champion of Service dogs in Slovakia and famous for his 0/0 progeny. The mother of Varna is great Darka z Pohranicni straze, a typical Grim z Pohranicni straze daughter. Grim was an exceptional stud dog. He attended the World Championship of German Shepherd dogs and was evaluated as the best in protection. Varna produced 2 excellent litters overseas. From her breeding with Furo Kamos she produced EX z Jirkova dvora: Hips; a normal, titled SchH1, Kkl2, ZW; 85, SZ.2154944, a strong stud dog now residing in Germany. Her breeding to Ory produced: AGAR-sluzebni pes PCR-SPV, ARCO-ZM, BH, ZVV1, FPR1, IPO2, VPG1, ZPO1, ARKYN- ZM, ZVV1.
