Oscar (West German Import)

Hammers Daddy

Brilliant Reds brought to America through Hammers Daddy Oscar.  Solid old style West German dogs, with straight flat backs and no exaggerated angles in the rear legs or banana backs. Sound bodies, sound minds and extraordinary Versatility.  Blended into our Old West German pedigrees ( some of the oldest in the World) carefully crafted through genetic balancing of qualities, character, looks, type, temperament and above all Health and Longevity. The American public and the Breed are the winners in this commitment to a Old Fashioned wonderful trustworthy, loving, versatile FAMILY companion.  We NEVER put Showing above the Families needs.  Generation after Generation Appleridge stays the course, despite critics comments about; not enough angles, not enough drive, not mean enough.  And.... here we are 40 years later, while most of them are long gone.  Please enjoy looking back through the years in our pages of pictures that owners , like yourselves, have shared with us.  Standing Proud with this magnificent Breed.  We have been Blessed to share our lives with these dogs, that selflessly give us love and commitment till death due we part.  Their loyalty should be revered by the Human Race. 

We get many inquiries as to what in particular makes a puppy Show VS Pet...
Show Quality VS Pet Quality 
Show Quality: Free of any disqualifying faults, for males, 2 testicles present. They possess exceptional traits physically. Temperament tends to be more dominant/ outgoing as it shows well if they are "alert & confident" however that is not always the case. Some may be well suited to high level competition in different venues. 

Pet Quality: A lovely specimen of the breed, who may not possess the attitude to show, perhaps would be better suited cuddling on the couch with it's family. No guarantee on testicles for males (irrelevant as you will be neutering) Often times this tends to be a more laid back puppy than its counterpart. It can be something as simply as how they carry their tail that distinguishes them as pet quality. We also do not sell NA's (DM) into inexperienced Breeding homes which would automatically make them Pet Quality although many breeders with less moral standards wouldn't.
Not ALL puppies in this world are meant for show homes, we CHERISH the pet homes that adopt our wonderful babies so they can have a fulfilling life! Please do not consider Pet Quality as an insult. I have a lovely pet quality spayed girl currently passed out on her bed at my feet as I write this a
and is a valued member of my family!
