Mercedes is the only girl we got to keep from Zazu before she passed away. So she is very dear to us. Her father Tommy is from another breeder and brand new blood lines for us and we are excited to add them into our gene pool.
Mercedes is just black and white. She has no copper so anyone looking at her as a parent to their litter should expect puppies without copper markings.
She is a smaller sized girl like her dad and she does produce smaller sized puppies for us.
Mercedes was raised by friends but is back with us now that her health testing is complete. We are currently working with her to fit into our lifestyle and we can start on her official training. It will be a long process because she has no formal training and lacks a lot of the skills my dogs already possess at this stage in life.
Currently she is a very shy and reserved girl with no formal training and a lack of socializing to the outside world. Knowing her background we know she has a lot of potential that
we simply have not had an opportunity to tap into. So we will start to focus on that in 2021 and are looking into classes if covid allows for her to help build her confidence and develop her bond with me.
