Default Boy von Zorra pups? Anyone have one?

I'm about to have a litter of them and am getting pretty excited and anxious to see what they will be like. I was wondering if anyone on here owned Boy offspring and what they were like. Of course I have tried to find out all I could PRIOR to breeding (and was thrilled with what I saw in person!), but I'd still like to hear others' personal experiences with them.

Just sittin' here waiting for puppies and passing some time..........

I am such a huge Boy fangirl. I am determined to get a puppy out of him for my next dog. Absolutely determined.

Are you keeping one back for yourself?

I will probably keep at least one, maybe 2, back to see how they are. I always keep a pup or 2 so I can get a real grasp on temperament for future breeding decisions. I am hoping to get a male for my personal dog though. I am getting a new job that will allow me to raise him like I raised my Caleb, and have high hopes for this pup as my sidekick and future stud. I may keep a female as well. It all depends.

What is it about Boy that has you so head over heels?

I have been watching Bill and Jen for a very long time, and I have to say I really, really trust the dogs they stand behind and produce. Jen got super lucky with Boy, he's one of those "he's got it all" type dogs for me, out of my preferred lines.

Physically, he's got it all. Big, intimidating masculine head. Gorgeous colour and pigment. Excellent working conformation with that extra something that gives the Show dog judges something to sink their teeth into. Size is excellent for a male. Dark eyes, dark mask, great ear set. Love him!!



I love watching him work. Big, intense, powerful. Great drives, great attitude, biddable. Temperament is fantastic, Jen does so much with him!

Love him! An ideal male for me.

I'm a Boy fan too for the same reasons as Angel. He's just so impressive all the way around.

Yes, he's a good-looking dog. He is similar in type to my Caleb, though more correct in size/structure than Caleb was. He was more coarse, larger, and his head was more exaggerated. I am hoping to get pups w/Capri's typical phenomenal temperament and also have really impressive looks w/show potential; I want a KKL1, V rated stud to keep for myself.

Any feedback on temperament? I thought someone had told me there were some Boy pup owners on this forum.

Liesje's Pan is out of boy. I believe she does a little of everything with him. He has beautiful pigment as well. I almost put a deposit on the Boy x Mia litter when the breeding was first announced, but my Achilles had to have hip surgery, so it wasn't an ideal time. Boy is one of my favorites as well.

Boy has a very out going, stable, social temperament. He thinks nothing of bouncing off people he just met and is all for them petting him if he hasn't knocked them over. He's also nuts for his ball and wants you to throw it for him.

I hope he is used heavily in North America, and look forward to seeing exactly what he produces.

Elaine, not BOY's temperament...obviously, I've met him or I wouldn't have bred my bitch to him. My question was about temperament of his offspring, hence my title.

Maybe I'm on the wrong board. I thought there were a bunch of owners w/firsthand experience on here. No big deal.
