Puppy Temperament:
Sought out people, calm and accepting.  Rarely dominent with other puppies, but would hold her own.    

9 Wk Structural Evaluation:
Excellent overall, no particular faults to note.  Well set elbows and depth of chest, excellent rear angulation, topline and length of loin.  Strong head and general structure predicted to make her a solid, somewhat 'doggy' bitch.  
Considered top "Pick" among group 
of 4 show bitches and 2 show males from litter of 8.

Kyra was the "Pick" of a very nice litter and has stayed with us.  She is what we wanted, all of Tasha's good qualities and correction of her weaknesses. 

Kyra is a sweet natured girl with incredible movement and a great deal of potential that we hope to show off in the coming years. 

Kyra was the Bred by Exhibitor Best of Breed and regular class Best of Opposite Sex at the 2009 AKC Eukanuban National Championship.  She received an invitation to Crufts 2010, and Invitations to the AKC Eukanuba Nat'l in 2010, 2011 and 2012.  

Kyra finished her Granch Champion title with 5 four point majors!  

In 2012 as a newly crowned GCH, she was exhibited at only 6 show weekends for a total of 16 shows April thru September 
where she won:
6 Best of Breeds, 
8 Best of Opposites and
2 Select Bitch placements!

She finished 2012 with a total of 60 points towards her Bronze !

Timeline Kyra ... our 'Grand Girl'

Took her first major, over the boys, her first show weekend at 6 months.

Took her second major, again over the boys, at 12 months to finish her CH!

Won her first Group Placement the following weekend.

In 2010 Kyra was specialed just a few times due to a busy family year, but still picked up several GCH points.

Was lost in the wilderness (ran away from a friend's home) for 3 days and nights in March 2011 in cold, wintery temps, but found her way back!  Very thin with worn pads, cuts, scraps and cactus in her feet and feathers, she could barely walk once she got to us.

When she had recovered, we specialed her at just 3 shows in May & June to see if she was ready and she was happy in the ring and continued earning her GCH points, plus made 'the cut' in heavy competition in the Sporting Group a couple of times.

She was bred that summer and had a litter of 10 in Sept. 2011.  Five boys & Five girls.  Four are in show homes!  OFA Health testing is coming in with great results overall on this group!

In April 2012, at her first show after puppies, she 
finished her Grand Championship picking up the last of her FIVE  4 point majors!  

From April to September she was exhibited at 
6 show weekends for a total of 16 shows, where she 
           WON  16  PLACEMENTS including:
6 Best of Breeds, 
8 Best of Opposites and
2 Select Bitch placements 
to complete a total of 60 GCH points 
including 13 Majors, 
towards her GCH Bronze! 

In December 2012 she had a singleton litter, adorable and spirited June!

In July 2013 she had her third and last litter of five, 2 Girls and 3 boys.  Two are in show homes!
