About this litter...

Power Tripp's Straight Shooter 'Arrow' x Imp. Blacksheep Jackie 'Babble'

 I'm really excited to be using a Shayde son on Babble. The pedigree combo is chalked full of both successful sheepdogs and performance dogs and I would hope to see nothing less of puppies from this pairing. Both Babble and Arrow are fabulous Flyball dogs consistently leaving respectable times of sub 4's on the clock. 

Babble is an intense little dog who has an intense devotion to her people. Babble has had two litters to date and those pups are coming into their own and starting to show their talents in various venues of training. At home Babble is a pretty easy dog to live with. She's very affectionate with her people, seems to have a soft spot for kids (men she could take or leave, mostly leave) and she sometimes thinks she's a Malinois when it comes to warding of intruders on our property! Once you've been accepted you may have to peel her off of your lap to exit again. She's got a beautiful little body and knows how to use it. 

Given what Babble has produced thus far and knowing Arrow's pedigree well, I would expect females to be smaller, in the 25-30lb/18" range and males a bit larger around 35lbs/19"-20". No shortage of drives for anything, sporty athletic builds with minds to stay on task is what I'd hope for. 

About Arrow according to his owner Sarah: Arrow is a dream dog in every aspect of life. He has loads of focus and intensity for any type of work or training you ask of him. He took to flyball like the proverbial duck to water and can run in any position in the pack with ease - though start with him is especially thrilling! He is an extremely powerful dog and hits the tug like a freight train; he will happily run for anyone brave enough to hold that tug! When not competing or training, however, Arrow is extremely sweet and loving. He has learned to settle well in the house but is ready at a moment's notice if you want to do anything. I'd consider him an almost bombproof dog. He is a fantastic off-leash hiking partner and has a soft spot for children of all ages. He is confident, bold, and has an amazing work ethic, but also has an affectionate and goofy side to his personality. I always like to say that he's never had a bad day in his life. He has a huge heart and is an honest dog through and through.   

Babble is OFA good, BAER Normal and DNA normal for the full breed panel including EAOD. 

Arrow is OFA Good, Elbows/Shoulders Normal (tested at 6.5 yrs old so this is wonderful considering he has already competed most of his life!). He is a CEA/EOD carrier and DNA normal for the rest of the breed panel.
