i was there at the NASS and i dont really like Rocco , but i will say his off spring were not bad , but he was no my fav progency group , i was very impressed with Kloud group. and if i had to pick, i liked VA7 and VA8 way better, and everyone will like something else that just what i liked the best .
i will admit that Rocco is better temp than most mittelwest dogs i have seen.
also for breeding reason, i would not breed to the top VA dog as most of the time the lower placing dogs are much better in my opinon . i have a feeling you go to show and just have fun with it as i still think money is involved with placing and yes top German handlers too.
i look more at the protection than the movement any way.
i think under the right Judge yes you can get a good placement.
