Re: Northern Inuit/British Timber Dog outcross?

From a breeding perspective, I want to let you know that people will critique your boy. They may point out qualities they like, AND qualities they don't like. This is not at all an insult to your dog, this is just speaking objectively about him as we evaluate him. Being able to honestly identify the...

Re: Northern Inuit/British Timber Dog outcross?

What are the health results of each parent (and grandparent)? Hip scores, eye exams, DM status, Dwarfism status, etc. Have he or his parents been tested for breed specific genetic disorders common to Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, and German Shepherds? Health testing is the biggest priority. D...

Re: Future Head Shape...?

I too also like the real wolf's lack of stop, or very slight stop. I didn't think of Collies at all when I saw the picture of Selene at the top. :) I think that having a slight/no stop will help Tams look a lot more wolfy! I also think we need to work more on producing large, wedge heads and longer ...

Thank you so much for your advice, everyone! :) I'm definitely looking forward to showing her and getting professional opinions on her structure. Thank you for the showing advice, Tracy!

Re: Light masking

Thank you, Miran! You were perfectly clear! :) I welcome honest criticism of Talia. It won't make me love her any less, but it is the right thing to do, to look at her objectively when considering her for breeding. Too many times, people think their dog is so wonderful and sweet and pretty that they...

Re: Light masking

Hello everyone! I'm attempting my first post on the Forum. I'd like to add onto this conversation and pick up where it left off with questions about my own girl. She is Tarheel Queen of Hearts (call name Talia), and is a full sister to Tarheel Butch Cassidy. Talia is from the 2014 Tarheel Heart Litt...
