Amazing dark red copper, soft silky straight coat, blocky head, beautiful black pigmentation and just built like a brick house! When she is not pregnant, this girl is amazingly athletic and so light on her feet, it’s almost cat like.
She is SUPER smart, almost too much for her own good at times. She is always alert, loves to micro-manage situations and I’m pretty sure sleeps with one eye open! But she has the softest sweetest personality and always wants to please and just give you as much love as you’re willing to take. When you’re standing, her favorite place is to dive right between your legs and if you’re not prepared for it, it could knock you off balance. She’ll stand there for as long as you let her … waiting to be loved on.
She is an AMAZING mother. Her first litter in 2017, was huge (13 puppies!) and she handled all 13 by natural birth like a pro and we were so lucky and amazed that we didn’t lose not one pup! She is so nurturing and calm in the whelping box, cleans up after them and loves on them. She loves her babies. She was very good with all of our other dogs around her litter too, not one moment of her getting anxious about them being in the house with her and her babies, let alone allowing them to be curious and sniff them and help with the nanny duties when she needed a break!
As for her personality, she is quite playful and seems to know exactly what you need when you need it, if that makes sense. She takes her game of fetch to a whole other level … she becomes very competitive as soon as you pull the chuck-it out! We have dabbled in confirmation showing, rally and scent work with her … and with her she really enjoys the activities that engage her brain and make her think. We came upon her by chance from a local hobby breeder here in Wasilla, Alaska and took a chance on her knowing that she did not have all of the “normal boxes checked” that we typically look for when we are looking to add puppies to our mix for breeding, but she has turned out to amaze us at every turn both in personality and health. She is a very special girl and we are so blessed to have her in our lives.
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!
