I'm Susanna Malacrida. I breed Old English Sheepdog and my kennel “Nobilpazzi” is approved by ENCI and FCI.
My passion for this adorable breed started many years ago, in 1976 when I bought directly from England my first boy; Lunar Lad, Harry came from Mr Stuart Mallard (Lameda kennel)the famous International dog show judge.
Then later on, another wonderful boy arrived at home: Vip del Girasole, my beloved Oscar, followed by a smart sweet girl Tiffany del Girasole; and with them I started to be envolved with everything concerned with OES and I begun my show career…
I had to wait two long years to get Reata’s Anatomy, gorgeous Gesebelle, from Andrea & Davor Javor.
And with her and her progeny my story went on...
Now I share my life with 11 OES...
My OES can run freely in my yard, but enjoy the comfort of resting on the sofas at the end the day; I spend a lot of my time with them and they are really the most important part of my life, together with my cats.
My aim is to breed high quality OLD ENGLISH SHEEPDOGS with balanced temperament, and flowing movement. BUT at the top is my "Respect for life".
All my breeding stock is carefully tested for inheritable diseases.
I follow their lives with care till their old age, supported by homeopathic vet, and with the help of natural remedies.
I'm their alpha leader, but also their tender mom in all the different situations.
I occasionally have some puppies, for which I’m very careful to find the best loving homes.
All of my puppies are family raised and well socialized. I never let them go before the age of three months, after they've had full course of vaccinations, been dewormed, microchipped, baer tested and registered at the Italian Kennel Club.
All my puppies do have their tails and I’m not not willing to sell to anyone who intends to amputate the tail later on.
I’m always happy to assist and advise our puppy buyers for the lifetime of the dog.
