This is the puppy that I would most like to retain. She is my pick of the litter. I like her conformation, stance and mix of assertive and calm. This pup shows the best attributes of the breed at this age, and I have hopes that she'll do well at agility and as a farm dog, as her parents do. At maturity he'll be 50-55lbs and 22" at the shoulder. The last pictures are of the parents. The dog is 24" at the shoulder, 65lbs. The bitch is 22" at the shoulder, 55lbs.
In the background of the parent shot you can see pups from last years litter. All other pictures are of this particular puppy.
