Sire of our dog's; Jaxon & Iris of Sapphire Mountain and
grandsire of Ravenna of Sapphire Mountain
Mambo's history as stud dog:
2004 to 2007: Mambo was a major producer for a private kennel in the Czech Republic owned by the former head of genetics and director of training at the renown government run border patrol kennel, z Pohranicni straze.
Spring/Summer 2007: Mambo was leased by the government run police dog breeding facility Policia in Slovakia.
December 2007-April 2010: Mambo was purchased directly from the Czech Republic into Montana USA by Sapphire Shepherds. Mambo was co-owned and standing as stud at Sapphire Shepherds during this time. Mambo was then placed with another breeder.
2013: Sapphire Shepherds became successful in exporting Mambo's genetics into the New Zealand Police Dog Breeding and Training Centre. This was achieved through frozen semen of a very nice son of Mambo, Jaxon of Sapphire Mountain. Jaxon is the product of a breeding put together by and out of a excellent brood female who was also produced at Sapphire Shepherds Rhea of Sapphire Mountain.
Mambo was a dog full of confidence with solid temperament. Had no hesitation putting a leash on him when he arrived at the Great Falls MT airport from overseas and he rode home in the back seat like we had done it many times before. He was playful, pushy, persistent, respectful of other animals and was safe around my kids and family members. He was usually easy to work with providing you had some experience with a dominate dog. His character put him in the group of dogs that I have owned who would not give up in a fight. To strangers he was neutral, if that stranger made a wrong move he was quick to make his presence known.
The offspring Mambo produced here with Sapphire Shepherds various females was placed into multiple working areas and family homes in the USA and Canada; search and rescue, law enforcement, working dog breeding programs, and competition areas. Mambo also had two daughters selected from our breeding program that became working service dogs, one for a hearing impaired handler and another working as a Dog Guide for her blind owner/trainer. This proves much about the stable temperament, intelligent and versatility Mambo and my females produced in their offspring and the working genetics offered by Sapphire Shepherds. Mambo was a well proven producer of highly trainable offspring well equipped for true working situations to family needs. He was known for passing his strength, speed and complete working drives onto his offspring. His pups demonstrated a love of tracking, good hunt drive and hardness of character. Many showed the ability to adapt quickly and feel at ease in new environments, demonstrating solid nerves and correct social judgment. For these reason's Mambo was widely used as stud.
A dog who needed little introduction to most, Mambo was recognized as one of the last real dogs to be bred in the famed z Pohranicni straze kennel. Mambo was a product of pure working lines containing excellent "old" z Ps and z Dudakova blood, along with some of the strongest "old" West German and DDR working lines. Well over 30 years of select breeding preformed by genetic experts have gone into producing Mambo's qualities. We, along with many other top breeding and training programs of working dogs worldwide have appreciated what Mambo brought to the German Shepherd breed.
Mambo was a medium large male with strong bones, head and dark pigmentation. He carried an excellent "V" rated conformation, excellent hips/elbows, breed surveyed considerable courage, hardness and fight drive. He possessed a strong build and ideal weight for a working dog, with movements that where absolutely firm and spacious. His hunt drive was extremely high, tracking and protection skills where very strong, ground speed into the helper was exceptional, grips full and powerful. He was a dog that could easily handle an extreme amount of pressure, a serious dog with a very "real" temperament. He was a sharp dog that at the same time had very high prey drive, huge enthusiasm and energy for all work and was enjoyable to work with. The biggest reward to Mambo for correct training was a thrown ball. He was a dog with sound nerves, good judgment and one of the very few working dogs in Europe to attain the prestigious ZVV 3 title.
Mambo was out of a repeat breeding combination between Jupp z Jirkova dvora and Qveeny z Dudakova. In Mambo's 5th generation pedigree you will find line breeding on Kaso z Pohranicni straze (4,3), Iwo von der Buschecke (5,4), and Ema z Pohranicni straze (5,4).
The sire of Jupp, is Koran z Pohranicni straze who brings in the 5th bloodline founded by Rolf v Osnabrucker Land through Bojar z Pohranicni straze, Treu von Schaferscholtz and Arko von Grafental. Koran is line bred on Amor Alenky (5,5). Jupp' mother, Zanet z Jirkova dvora is the daughter of world renowned Brix vom Kapfwald, who at the very young age of 2.5 yrs became the working Champion of Germany! Brix is line bred (3-5) on the excellent blood of Racker vom Itztal a well respected dog for bringing excellent tracking skills, improved grip, obedience and bidability and most valuable of all, his ability to pass his superior intelligence onto his offspring! Brix also brings to Mambos genetics the prized blood of Wicko von Meran, and Frei von der Gugge. Through Zanet's mothers, Pegi z Pohranicni straze you find her sire the legendary Titus z Pohranicni straze along with 2 different lines to Held von Ritterburg (3,3) through Bero von der Friedersdorfer Flur and Kass vom Furtendamm.

Baro also brings to Mambo again, the excellent blood of Frei von der Gugge, along with the huge produce of Police dogs Greif zum Lahntal, and the legendary Brend vom Lierberg. These are all dogs who not only preformed and produced very well, much of their offspring did also. Qveeny's mother Mona z Dudakove brings in the significant working blood of Meik von Weidagrund. Mona is also line bred on the exceptional working/producing dog Dar z Przma (5-4) and brings in Iwo von der Buscheck, seen in Mambo's 4th generation.
