Colt is our big goof. And by "big", we mean 100 pounds! And he still has a lot of filling out to do. We absolutely love his wonderful personality. When visitors come he can’t stand to be ignored and demands hugs and attention.
Colt is also a new champion! He won it in only 9 shows, including going Best of Breed 3 times along the way! Special thanks to his new co-owners Ken and Michele Beatty, whose support and guidance helped me accomplish a longtime goal: A Champion that is a homebred!
Colt has a fantastic pedigree. Sired by Cowboy, the incomparable 2x Select Excellent, Multiple Best in Show, Multiple Best in Specialty Show, Grand Champion Stuttgart’s Single Action Army V. Hammersmith TC, RN, OFA. His mom, Suzi, was sired by AOE 2XGV CH (US)Campaigner's Gatewood UziROM, CD, TC, HIC, HT, CGC, TDI.
Riker is a big bear of a Shepherd with a heart to match. This is the kind of Shepherd we looked far and wide for when we were doing our work with the Assistance Dogs. Soft body language, nice, even ball drive, sweet and affectionate, plus smart and trainable. He is the true: Calm, Trainable, Classic German Shepherd.
The very best of a German/American cross. Beautiful to look at, wonderful to live with, a joy to train.
Riker has OFA good hips and normal elbows, above-average pancreatic function, and has been DNA cleared of degenerative myelopathy.
Riker is retired now, but his daughter Whisper will carry on his legacy.
