I love seeing photos of my babies.....to clairfy - this is a co-owned, co-bred litter from L'Sabre, who I co-owned, and Komet who I own and is sleeping on his couch in the "Komet pose".....so I am co-breeder on the litter, which carries my kennel name....I also bred both Komet and L'Sabre, and own the other "L" litter puppy, Lynx (Lucca) who is in Maryland doing tracking training at the moment. This litter is linebred on my very beloved Csabre v Wolfstraum - who had two littermates doing SAR, one of whom ended up as a Vermont State Trooper K9...the other went to a gentleman who was a FEMA handler out of NJ in the late 1990's early 2000s....
...Komet has one daughter doing narcotics detection, his sister Kira (HGH) has a daughter who has FH (98 points) and is certified (at a LE certification) for 5 drugs. The litter is also backmassed on Lord, so lots of ability in those genetics! The litter certainly was bred for working utility - and all pups went to working homes (as stated by the buyers anyway
Ikarus (Iko) the father of Lynx and L'Sabre is a multi terrain/purpose (???) certified SAR (IPWDA) dog owned by a friend in Vermont who heads a SAR team - all operational dogs are certified IPWDA prior to any going on a call out.....great great dog with a ton of hunt drive and gorgeous to boot! From all my communications with Alex, he is a real rockstar with huge buckets of hunt drive....he should have had people lined up to use him for breeding!!!! Although he is not IPO titled, he was started and showed he had everything needed - but Alex wanted a SAR dog....in his litter, I think 3 others were IPO3s, with one littermate on the podium at a USCA National ....and 2 pups went to IPO homes. Another pup, Rebel, went to Vermont to a team member on Alex's team.....and 2 went to friends who do IPO (one has trialed at the regional level a few times) then I have one as well, Rocket.
This is a 5th/4th generation of von Wolfstraum breeding as well!!!
So glad to see she is so promising!!!
