Leonbergers are the best creation
from Germany and Griffin's Nest is devoted to maintain
the German standard of the Leonberger breed for their
Griffin's Nest has been a member
of the Leonberger Club of America (LCA) since 1997 and
had our first litter in 2002. Leonbergers have joined
the ranks of the American Kennel Club (AKC). Griffin's
Nest maintains the LCA and AKC standards.
Leonbergers are gentle, loving
and loyal dogs that easily become part of the family.
The standard temperament is exceptional and they are very
eager to please. Griffin's Nest has 2 pups, each from
different litters, that have been certified as Therapy
Dogs. Congratulations Poe and Brenton.
We breed quality Leonbergers
and have carefully chosen studs that are the German standard
for the breed to facilitate the development of our line.

Thanks to the dedication and
co-operation of many domestic and international Leonberger
owners and breeders, our researchers, and the generosity
of the LHF and the AKC CHF, we now have a genetic test
available for the LPN1 mutation which causes severe, early
onset Leonberger polyneuropathy.
Buyer Beware! Be
sure to ask to see certification of LPN1 status of the
parents of any litter you consider.

Neuromuscular Laboratory website for more information
