Hunter von Salerno, our stud tracking dog in Guam, out of Hanna x Milan
Hi Joyce. 
Hunter on no leash. 
Air scent. 
No track, no scent cloth. 
Field disaster practice. 
What a dog!
Police and Fire truly trust him with his work. 
Have a great day.

Real search last Wed. Hunter is out of Milan x Hanna

Hunter was called at 9 am to search for a 69 yr man. Missing for a 24 or more period. When I got to the starting point the Fire SAR team had already found him. I told the Capt who thought Hunter needed a scent cloth that in most cases Hunter doesn't. So I showed him that he didn't. When I did that the Capt said ok lets gear up and Hunter can track half way for practice. I said fine. Capt said when they come down Hunter will get to meet the victim and that will be like a find. I said ok. Well as we started up the high mountain, the Fire SAR team radioed that they had exhausted all their water. Capt said we have to have Hunter takes us all the way. Hunter tracked as a champ up the mountain and across the top to find the Fire SAR and the victim to give water. Approx 4 miles or more to find. After that he lead us all back to the car. SAR could have done that but Hunter wanted to take the lead. 

The man was far in. I am amazed that they found him on their own first. 

Now the Capt should really believe in Hunter. 

He just went to the victims car door and got the right scent. Fire had hampered the car and tourists were there too. Hunter is like Scout. Very smart and doesn't have to be told anything. He also took the heat and distance like a champ. SAR couldn't believe it. Fire Chief thanked me. Harold Burrows is coming on Nov 22 to assess Hunter and hopefully certify. I have a letter to use Hunter off island already. I sent Harold videos. He will stay 3 weeks. 

God bless. 

Your pups are amazing.

Sabo ( now max ) went to Stanford shopping mall ...for socializing.... With drews  big sister Becci that's home from college and trained dogs in rally, obedience, working dog/ hunting.

He met about 20 little kids that feed him treats.... and becci gave out your name to 10 families that just couldn't get over how nice he was in his temperament.

Just thought I would drop you a quick note and let you know how Terra is doing. We are in LOVE!!! She seems very comfortable with us and in our home. 

She is quite popular and has already had 4 visitors. She is not shy with new people and seems to make friends easily.  She has 2 more visitors coming to meet her on Wed evening!!

She is doing great in her crate at night, very little whimpering if any. We go out close to every 2 hours so potty training is coming along. Only had a couple pee pee accidents in the house which of course were my fault 

Thank you again things are going very well for her only having been with us since late Friday afternoon....

Hello Rachelle,
I just wanted to send you an update on Bane (Quiency Blitzenhaus Von Salerno). He is doing great. His ear is finally staying up and he's doing well with his obedience. He's a great watchdog! Nothing comes in our gate without us knowing it. He's changed so much over the years! Thank you so much for giving us a phenomenal dog. Attached are some pictures of him.

I hope you had a good holiday season.  I wanted to pass along a few photos of Evi and Niko. They are  getting along as if they were together all their lives.


December 23, 2014

It's been a while since we've been in touch and I just wanted to give you an update on Kuma, who came out of Selena and Titan's litter late October of 2013. 
She is all I could ever ask for and more in a shepherd! She is stunning, sweet, and brilliant. I am so obsessed with her, and can't thank you enough for helping me live my dream and getting my first shepherd.
Kuma is about 14 months old now, and really letting her personality show. Her sass is always present, but she is ready to listen at the drop of a hat. She has grown into a beautiful dog(just like her parents), and we get stopped by many people when we're out and she gets compliments on her good looks!
Again, I just wanted to thank you for being so great in this process. I hope you and your family are doing well.

H-Fiona von Salerno (Zira x Solo)

Here is an example of a beautifully pigmented red puppy!

Sorry it has taken so long to send pictures.   Fiona (Hanna) is doing well.  She is beautiful and growing like a weed.  She is about 30 lbs. and her ears are finally up all day today.. She is fitting in with the pack. Isabella and Fiona play all day.. Harriet is to old and cannot get around anymore so Fiona just goes up to her and licks her face.. She is smart enough to know to bow down to Harriet. Thank again for such a great dog.  You might be hearing from others up here in Alaska cause everyone wants to know where I got her from...Hope you like the pictures.. Also Fiona loves the snow.

Evi von Salerno (Dakota x Solo)

I'm curious if Evi had any basic training before you let her come here. Reason I ask is her 

response to commands is absolutely stunning, if she hasn't, then she is definitely an Einstein in 


Thanks so much for her.

Evi arrived safe and sound and has settled in to her new home just grand. What a sweetheart. She and

B-Rebel von Salerno (SG Inischy von Salerno x V Solo vom Baiselberg)

We went to Petsmart and bought him the monkey ring. He loves it. He loves the toys you gave us too.
We threw the tennis ball and he went after it and brought it back. So funny the ball is as big as his head.

He's such a good companion...definitely the right fit for me. I'm amazed at the bonding already.

All the best,

Mogli's Christmas



Hi Rachelle,

Gonny slept quietly on my bed all night. She's still sleeping now, I'm just an early riser.
I thought you might like to see what my friend wrote on my FB wall about her dog:
What a coincidence! We bought him in Oct 2007.  Cyrus' sire is Niccor Von Bad-Boll and his dam is 
Waneska Von Salerno.  When I did my research, I found that her dogs were very well bred.  I checked 
references, too. Her dogs had very few health problems. If you happen to talk to her, please tell her that 
Cyrus a.k.a. Quinn is doing very well and that he is a huge part of our family.  We feel so very lucky to have him. 
He was part of the "Q" litter.  That will probably help her  remember who he and who we were. I liked Quinn, but 
we wanted to name him something that we chose. Given that he was only weeks old, we didn't think it mattered.  
Congrats on your newest addition!  You found a very good, healthy breeder that that loves her dogs very much.
That was nice to hear.  :)
Have a good day.

Hi Rachel,

Just an update,

IKO Zeus Von Salerno is now 19 months old.  He is serves as a personal protection dog and patrols our property

without fear of man nor beast.  Weighing in @ 91 lbs., and standing 22 inches at the shoulder,  Zeus has completed 

basic and advanced obedience and has been thoroughly trained in advanced bite work.  Zeus can be turned on and 

turned off at a moment’s notice, he turned out to be an excellent personal protection dog, and sentry for the property.  

By the way he’s beautiful too!

For your web-site, I’ve included pictures of him as a puppy and as he stands now.

Merry Christmas!
Phillip N. Turner
