General Description

Above medium size, strong, substantial dog of very good type. Strong masculine head with very good expression. Very good length of neck, high wither, firm back, very good length of croup, set slightly steep. Very good fore and under chest development. Very good fore and hindquarter angulations, the upper arm could still be better angled. Stands and steps correct front and rear. In movement shows very good reach and drive.

Particular Virtues & Faults:

A dog that impresses with his strength, proportions and overall construction. Ideally, the reach could be a little freer.

Suitable for improvement of general proportions & strength. Care should be taken with further linebreeding to Edlenblut Orkan.

Thank you to those breeders who have used Peppi for his outstanding qualities. He is consistently passing on his strength and substance, his superb character and temperament,  his glamour, very good angulations and proportions, his quality coat and to date excellent hip/elbow results. Many of these qualities are severely lacking in our Australian breeding programs these days.

To view more of Peppi's children, please visit Peppi's Progeny.


Stop Press!Peppi's semen is 'AT LAST ' in America awaiting insemination to the beautiful Hawks Hunt's Ruby Slippers (OFA-G)! Suzanne (Flying dog press) breeds under her 'Hawks Hunt' prefix - please go take a look! Hopefully if all goes to plan we can share the travels of some very special Ruby/Peppi puppies with you in the not too distant future!

'I met Peppi when teaching in Australia, and he immediately impressed me with his stunning temperament & structure, great sense of humour, impressive mind and a serious & knowledgeable breeder, Theresa Lewis, at the end of the lead.  After visiting Camnusch GSD's to meet Peppi's relatives & offspring, we decided to import semen from this terrific dog.  We are VERY excited about adding these great bloodlines to our program! These should be awesome pups!'
