September 2013: Mishelle has made the decision that she needs to place "Tru". She just doesn't have enough home space for two full grown standard males, plus her miniature "boys", and she has added two standard females in place of "Eve". If you are interested in "Tru" please contact us. He has passed all of his testing with flying colors, has a very outgoing personality, is beautifully crate trained, grooming trained, and up to date on all vaccinations and wormings. He is now in a kennel clip, and loves to run and play with my "girls", but suffers when he has to be separated due to heat cycles. We don't have anything left to breed him to, either due to relationship or color. $2000.00 as a stud, $1500.00 as a pet plus neutering costs. He does have good working drive and might do well with good training as an agility dog. He is slightly alpha in nature, is very intelligent and quick to learn and adapt to new situations. He needs to go to someone with good training skills.
October 19th, 2012: "Tru" is now standing at stud to select females. He has passed all of his testing with outstanding success. We are still growing coat on him and sister "Lacy" with hopes of showing both at the Regional Specialty being held in Oregon (for the 1st time we know of - usually in California) in 2013. Watch for "Tru" and "Lacy" in both the International Show Rings as well as the AKC shows. We can't thank the Hetherington's of Canada enough for joining with us in producing the outstanding litter of puppies that resulted in "Tru" and "Lacy" and their littermates. Wonderful outgoing temperaments, sunny dispositions, plenty of working drive, but also a willingness to settle - very much like their sire LeRoy , and great-grandsire "Sterling".
January 1st 2012: "Tru" is a beautiful blue standard, retained by Mishelle for a future Horizons standard stud. He has a sweet, outgoing temperament and has performed well in his first two shows. Watch for him later in 2012 when he has more coat for showing AKC. Stud service will be by private treaty only. "Tru" is full littermate to "Lacy" (see her webpage)
