Hi All My name is Steve Dean, I am a retired police dog handler / trainer and a breeder of Tydain German Shepherds. I have recently become involved with a new breed and imported the first two Ruwhaar Dutch Herders into the UK, they are basically Rough Coat Dutch Herders or Shepherds. I have a 4 year old male called Conrad v.d Roneberg (Conny) and a 3 year old female called Yntje-Uniek v.d Bothof (Puck). It is believed that there are between 800 - 1000 of them worldwide and the Dutch breed club are very excited that for the first time they are now in the UK. I have found them an absolute delight to live with and a joy to own. They are not as high drive as their short coat counterpart but still retain sufficient work ethic and drive. If anyone would like more information please drop me a line or respond to my introduction. The dark photo is my male Conny and the lighter coloured brindle is the female Puck. Thank You.
