Xito - September 2004 - 10+ years old in Baltimore

To me, Xito embodies the ideals of the German Shepherd breed - Temperament, Working Ability and Structure, Xito has shown that he is a sire who has the genetic strength to pass on these qualities and to stamp his progeny, thus to improve the females to whom he has been bred. 

From the first time I saw his photo in a USA magazine, I knew that he was the dog I had always wanted, and that started a 3 year quest to find a son of his to call my own....hence, the reason I have Kougar - who is a Xito son in body and spirit....

 am grateful for the opportunity to have met this wonderful German Shepherd Dog, and feel privileged to have his progeny in my home and bearing my kennel name.  I am thankful that Bob let me share so much of Xito's last years and allowed me to honor his memory with this page at von Wolfstraum....
