Alannah had her first litter by Brody in the spring of 2015 - and it was unique - NINE girls. She was an excellent mother and the litter was strong and even.
We are now planning her second litter. This time, we ideally wanted a CEA non-carrier male with a laidback disposition, a good forechest and a good chin and underjaw. After having searched nationally and internationally, we concluded that the answer laid in our own kennel. Striker should be a good match to Alannah.
Alannah is a large and athletic bitch with a bouncy and outgoing personality. She sports an excellent fitted coat and healthy skin. Her appetite is excellent as is her digestive system. She has strong bones and a good tail as well as naturally tipped ears.
Striker is a large size male with an excellent body balance and superb bones. He is a laid back character and very easy going with people and other dogs, and daily instigates play time with the rest of the pack. He eats very well and is easy to keep in good condition. His coat is very healthy. He has not been shown due to having very heavy ears. Striker has had four litters. He is a CEA non-carrier and all his offspring are normal eyed. Of the 8 that have been hip x-rayed, none are dysplastic.
The puppies from this combination should make great companions. Sables and tricolors expected. The puppies should be of good size, with good bone and feet, well carried tail, naturally tipped to heavy ears, moderate coat. They should be athletic and fun-loving. All puppies will be CEA free. Alannah's previous litter struggled a bit with car sickness, but this is steadily improving.
Thanks to Laura Van Embden for allowing Striker to come to Norway.
Serious inquiries welcome.
