Previous Litters

Blackthorn's "A" Litter

My first litter, in February 1997. Only two puppies, Asa and Ashen. Blackthorn's Ashen, SchH3, has gone on to become my competition dog and was the 2000 HOT SchH1 Champion and the 2001 HOT SchH3 Champion. Asa is working on getting her SchH3!


Blackthorn's "B" litter

Born in November 2001, this litter from Bodo and Nike produced everything we could have wanted--beautiful dogs who love to work. Three of the puppies are working Search and Rescue dogs, and Bramble has stayed with me to compete in Schutzhund.

Blackthorn's "C" Litter

Born in September 2002, this litter from Ash and Nike combined Ash's drive and willingness with Nike's fire and speed.
