Hmm.. can you please send me a private message on your email address, and I will respond to you. Ever since I got back into the forum, I have lots of spam emails from Malaysian companies with all sorts of advertisements. I am okay, but just worried about Trojans!

I do not think it is easy for you to just import from Germany, because there are lots and lots of breeders there. There are also many who breed to BSg or KSg or V-titled dogs, and then try to export to foreign countries. I also will guarantee you that they do not sell you any potentially winning dogs after they are 4 months old, unless they know you very well. However, I think I really do not need a V1 dog, because I am not showing my dogs in shows anymore. Anyway, I have followed the German Rottweilers for almost 15 years now, and I have some idea of what bloodlines I want. For example,10 years ago, I wanted to have Rick von Burgthann's line because they are great conformance dogs. However, he is too old to breed now, and I will not have any of his famous son, Mambo's line. There are lots of champions out of Mamno's line, and there is the widely bred Amigo still in Germany. There is no perfect dog, and so please do not look for one as it will take forever! :) For example, I like Vico but he is "sharp" and was export to USA, which I believe had an accident or tragedy. However, the "V" litter of Flugschneise is one of the best litters from that kennel, and so is the "M" litter of Scherau kennel. Anyway, it is both a science and art to figure it out, remember dogs have 39 pairs of chromosomes and human has 23 pairs. So it is not difficult to figure it out that whoever tell you breeding a champion with another champion will get a "chamion" is bluffing you.
I don't know what is the price now, but based on the last dog I got in 2006; it cost me 1,400 Euros for the 3 months old puppy; 900 Euros for the cage and air-freight; another S$1000 for 30 days quarantine, licenses and vaccinations. Sorry, so now you know how expensive this passionate hobby of mine is, and so I have decided to pick up other hobbies now as well.
I attempted to upload some picture, but seems like it only allow one for now. The big guy is from my breeding done almost 4 years ago, and the two small girls are bred at the beginning of this year.
