Our dogs are high on both drive and bold temperaments. On a scale for Drive 1-10, (one being a 'couch potato' and 10 being 'no off button') we strive for an 8 or 9. On a scale for Temperament 1-10, (1 being shy and fearful and 10 being bold and unafraid) we strive for 7 to 8.5 (too bold and you get aggressive).
• Mozart is a 9 drive and an 8 for temperament
• Maggie is a 8 for drive and is a 7 for temperament
• Bugsy is a 7 for drive and is an 8 for temperament
Our goal is to continue the excellent breeding line started by Joan Mason. Her goal was to aim for an all around type of dog that has the drive to 'get the job done' whether it is herding stock, agility and sports, or Search and Rescue dogs. At the same time she wanted them to be the sort of dog who can be with children, do dog therapy in a nursing home, or be loved companions. Like Joan, we do not breed for a particular color or size but we do have a variety in both catagories as 'icing on the cake'. Take care of what the dog is inside, and the outside can be a big variety of traits.
My sunshine doesn't come from the skies,
it comes from the love that's in my dog's eyes.
