Mariah currently has 8 points and 1 Major

toward her AKC Championship - with limited showing.


Mariah brought some very important strengths to my breeding program.

She has superior orthopedics and she has produced superior orthopedics in pups.

She also has lovely breed type, with an especially gorgeous wide back-skull for a bitch

and she produces this in her puppies consistently.


To me, one of Mariah's greatest strengths is her movement: she floats effortlessly.

She produces this lovely movement in her puppies, too.


Perhaps Mariah's greatest strength is her tremendously lovely temperament.

Thankfully, Mariah throws herself very strongly in her offspring

and her lovely temperament has consistently been produced in her children.


Mariah is the mother to: Vinny, Savvy, Napa, Murphy and Sunny
