Best Tricks: Leaping up in the air to pick off a frisbee.
Arrival Story: Shepherds are my breed of choice, and I already had a 5 y/o and a 8 y/o in the house, successfully raised. I felt ready to add a puppy to the litter , one who would be a flyball/competition agility dog. I found the right girl for that - she has incredible focus and drive and desire to please. Intensely sensitive, Tessa was almost 100% clicker-trained. Though she is allowed to sleep in bed with me, she always finds her way into her crate, where she sleeps on her back snoring loudly.
Bio: American bloodline GSD, her daddy had his championship in confirmation and was working in agility, as well as obedience. Her mother was also starting her life in agility. Tess inherited from her mom her single-minded focus and drive and from her dad, her very statuesque look. Since mummy was all black and daddy was a black/silver, she has managed a bi-color look. Inky-black with tan (almost red) points. She's very striking and attracts a lot of attention when we're out.
