At Covy-Tucker Hill, we are very proud of our 20 Register of Merit Sires, and 40 Dams. Many of the dogs below are foundations upon which many successful breeding programs began.
Photos of most of our ROMs are included below, please click on any of the photos to begin viewing. A complete list is included here for reference as well.
The Register of Merit (ROM) title is awarded by the German Shepherd Dog Club of America to sires and dams of progeny competing in the conformation and performance rings. Its purpose is to recognize top producing sires and dams based on the accomplishments of their progeny. The qualifications are different for the sire than for the dam as the sire will likely have more progeny in his life-time than the dam.
Sires must have a total point count of 100, earned by 10 or more of his progeny. Five of his progeny must attain the title of AKC Champion, or ROM.
Dams must have a total point count of 40 earned by 4 or more of her progeny. Two of her progeny must attain the title of AKC Champion, or ROM.
