**all puppies sold**

Litter Pedigree
(Belgian/German and DDR working lines)

This is a very similar breeding to my S (Jedi x Xita) and T (Jedi x Oda) litters. Leia is Oda's littermate and is being leased for this special, herding-focused breeding. Leia is titled in herding and brings her sound nerves, excellent health, beautiful conformation, and natural instincts, while Jedi, also herding titled, brings his strong desire to work with his handler and strong working drives. Leia is a small female (about 58 pounds) with lovely correct structure. She is very sweet in the house and reminds me a lot of her mother. This should be a special combination that will produce lovely dogs for work, sport, or companions.

Jedi is from the final litter of Nike and Ash--a combination that produced balanced high drives, high trainability, several pups certified in SAR work, strong herding instinct, and keen intelligence--as well as good overall health and a strong hip production record! Jedi is absolutely sound in temperament, excellent with strange dogs of all sizes and shapes, loves kids, and is bombproof in temperament. He has strong working drives with an excellent ability to harness those drives to work all day long but to settle calmly in house and car. He is a working herding dog and competes in AKC, AHBA, and USBCHA herding trials. His two previous litters out of Oda and Xita produced handsome, healthy, athletic, and versatile puppies working as service dogs, and in herding, personal protection, AKC obedience, nosework, tracking, agility, as well and joyful family companions.

This litter was produced in cooperation with Terri Chisman, owner and trainer of Jedi and Leia.
