Faith is out of our Hope x Deshka final litter in 2020 and God made her just special for us as she was born a singleton. Hope started going into labor and progressed quickly from stage 1 right into stage 2 and in 30 minutes from start to finish, out she came in to this world a strong little spitfire, with in minutes of being born she was moving around and searching for the milk bar and immediately latched! We've never had any puppies "come alive" that fast and start searching for mama - it was very impressive! Raising a singleton was a new experience for us, as we were the ones from birth that had to be her littermates and give her all of the same experiences as best as we could as she would have had with littermates. The result ended up being a super smart little pup, fiercely independent but a giant lover too. Of course she was born during the era of Covid, and unfortunately she did get the short end of the stick a little on the socialization period, so she does end up approaching things with caution but once she's reassured that it's ok she's one brave little girl.
She's a spitting image of her mama, loves her family and protects them just the same. She's a darker golden/red color, beautiful silky soft coat and has the most expressive eyes! She has chosen my husband Pat, as "her person" and is his shadow constantly watching his every move and loves to "talk" to him. She is extremely athletic and loves to go and LOVES water! She's got endless energy, but when she decides that it's time for some r & r ... she is a major snuggler and as soon as she senses Pat headed for the couch, she will leap up there before anyone else so she can just snuggle right up into his neck. We do sometimes joke, that all of the smarts and attentiveness from an entire litter of puppies went into her because she just really seems to have something extra about her. She loves toys, but really loves having a good ol' chew session on some moose antlers! Balls however, are a close second.
She has a natural mothering instinct and took to motherhood of her first litter like a fish to water! She is a fantastic mother and super sweet and nurturing to her babies, which is always so heartwarming to us when it's just a natural ability, just like Hope was. We are very excited to have her in our breeding program and to see what super babies she makes!
Don't miss our Friday night Facebook Live events! After the puppies are born, we will host a Facebook Live event every Friday at 6:00 pm Alaska Standard Time for everyone to tune in and see the puppies!
