What are your thoughts on "Hasan Ja Na Ka"?

I have no first hand knowledge of the Hasan or any of his progeny, but from watching a few videos, he looks well schooled.
He carries one of my favorite dogs, Sid Pixner on the top side, but back a few generations. He is the only dog on that side that I have consistently seen his progeny in police work. It’s unfortunate to see him losing ground in the pedigrees. I have seen a few of the females from this line with a noticeable bite reflex, almost always when Sid is on the mother’s side.
The bottom side continues to gain name recognition throughout the working dog communities. I do caution that you can sometimes get a lot of dog really fast from this line. It reminds me a little of the Gildo Korbelbach blood where one day the owner wakes up to a different dog. I saw many, (many) of the Gildo line end up working the streets for that reason. Some dogs from Hasan's bottom side may not be the best choice in a praise/reward/redirect only system. When a bold, confident, forward, aggressive nature becomes frustrated, a potential disaster is in the making. This is also an increasing problem with police dogs and their handlers.

But I just heard from someone that seems to be knowledgeable about European bloodlines and said she didn't like "Hasan" for many reasons but wouldn't explain...I don't know if it's something personal or something else...This is the reason I was putting it out there and asking for others opinions...
I was hoping to get some opinions from folks in Europe that have personal information on him...
I just brought in a couple males out of "Hasan" and have seen nothing but nice things out of them so far...but they are puppies...

I'm curious about this dog as well. Very interesting pedigree.
Honestly, if a breeder says they don't like a dog for several reasons, but won't provide you with those reasons, they're probably trashing the dog because they see it as a form of business competition $$$.

@ pirschgang there is a ton of stuff I know about certain dogs that I can or will not share, especially on internet, sometimes its ok to share after dog is dead, but to talk about dog that is alive and breeding, and not your dog, sometimes you cannot tell all.
Im sure that goes the same for many other people
if a breeder says she doesnot like a dog for various reasons, but doesnot want to say more, I think that breeder is honest and respectful (generally speaking)
