I could still remember the day i got Marwind from the breeder. Looking at 6 pups, he was the one who approached me and i fell in love instantly. I immediately held him in my arms to know if he would really bond with me and he settled in right away and did not have any resistance at all. That’s when i knew that Marwind is the one.
Details on his certificate are: sire Meghana’s Lifeline Jasper; dam Dora Von Der Nacht – daughter of PH Champ Ebby Z. Milabru. Marwind is a grandson of a Philippine Champ.
We used to take Marwind at the mall quite often when he was just a puppy. He instantly attracted so many stares and petting because of his cuteness.
Now that he’s an adult and has grown so big, he still gets a lot of attention whenever we take him out and because of his size and good looks i always hear people say “ang laki” (so big). Taking him on car rides gets him lots of stares and admiration too with that big face sticking out of the window.
As a guard dog, he is fierce, territorial and very loyal. He has a deep and loud bark that sounds so intimidating. He barks at anyone approaching or near our gate. But, whenever he is out of his own territory which is our home, Marwind is a very cool dog and he could be petted by anyone. He is calm and comfortable when at the vet and unmindful of the barkings of other dogs. He doesn’t mind being handled during routinary check ups like opening his mouth, checking his teeth, checking his ears and body, etc. He is just one cool dog outside of his realm. Also, he is very protective of me that sometimes even to the point of not letting my other dog Rafraf be near me.
Marwind loves ice. I give them as treats. He also enjoys playing with water.
Happy 3rd birthday Marwind of Gershephund. You deserved all my overflowing love and care.
