When it became known that Armin no longer wanted to work with Goyar, there were also quite a few inquiries and offers. But we could never think about the idea to leave Goyar to a handler, who wants him to use only for sport. We didn't want that someone is trying to supposedly "better training methods" at the dog and underestimates him.
We thought that Goyar would be good for the breeding, because of his very interesting bloodline and its extraordinary working abilities. So we were waiting for someone who wanted to use him only for this purpose. Again, there were some interested people in germany and foreign countries.
He has left us in November 2010 and the new owner promised to take him only as a stud dog. It was a real shock, when we only 2 months later have heard that he had to be euthanized, because "in training" he has more often let shown "the abnormal walk".
When Goyar had the x-ray-investigation about the hips and elbows, we also let x-ray his back. In Germany only the hips and elbows are evaluated formally. But we've send also the x-ray photos of his back and they are kept at the DMC. They showed that time in the assessment by the x-ray-veterinary no abnormalities. The statement of the vet was: "Hurray, here we have the skeleton of the month..." He told us at that time in particular, that each vertebra had an optimal distance to the other.
The physical efforts of the state championship, like running, jumps, etc. Goyar completed without any problems. Alone in the protection work, he prepared the helpers (as usual) trouble. Not only because of this, one week after the state championship, Goyar was routinely checked by a professional veterinary for bones and movement.
So Armin handled it since Clip and T-Rex at the end of the season all the time. Because twice we had to do with sprained or twisted neck, lumbar vertebrae, which they had brought in the protection work.
The investigation was normal. So far Goyar was perfectly healthy.
Also on the day of the sale we have shown at home in our garden Goyar's ability and capability in parts of obedience- and protection work to the new owner. And also his character to react with more active even with light impacts. He showed no physical defects or deficits. Why should he? Finally, we had no longer worked with him for the last 2 months.
