“Tessalto” German Shepherds


German Shepherds Breeding Program

Nicole MacDuff, founder and president of Manoir Kanisha, has been breeding purebred Conformation Show German Shepherd Dogs, since 1970.  The name of her private breeding programme is TESSALTO and is registered with the Canadian Kennel Club.  Her dogs have won numerous conformation and obedience championships titles in both Canada and the United States.

Unfortunately, the management of Manoir Kanisha does not allow travelling to the various dog show sites. The quality of her quality bloodline is still present.

Our last litter was born on March 26, 2012.  The proud mama is TESSALTO’s FABEE and the father TESSALTO’s ARNAUD.  Our puppies are either black and tan or sable.  With a lovely friendly temperment, our German Shepherds are well socialised because they live in the stimulating Manoir Kanisha environment.

For further information, contact Nicole MacDuff at Manoir Kanisha.

Our new TESSALTO’s JJJJ Litter, born Oct. 11, 2012 


We are delighted to introduce our new TESSALTO’s JJJJ litter of German Shepherds puppies. The three males (red, blue and white collar) were born on october 11, 2012. The mother is our beautiful “EVA” and the father is the famous Canadian Champion Select and American Champion Select “DEISEL” (http://www.chablisgsd.net/diesel.htm). The puppies are in very good condition and very hungry. Today they started to walk with a little bit of hesitation. We are now looking for original names starting with the “J” letter.
