Tori's first litter was born at Images Belgian Sheepdogs in May of 2003.  All of the puppies are healthy to date.  One puppy from the litter has been shown in conformation, finishing her championship easily and quickly with multiple majors.

Stormy is a calm, easy-going dog of stable temperament.   He easily earned both his AKC and UKC championships, finishing AKC in style by going  Winners Dog at the 1999 Belgian Sheepdog Club of America National Specialty under breeder-judge Sharon Redmer.

We expect Stormy and Tori's puppies will have lovely European style and enjoy good health/temperament and have nice structure and movement.  They should be particularly well suited to whatever performance endeavor one chooses to do with them.  Click here for more photos of the parents and the pedigree cross.  Click here to view photos of the litter from 0-10 weeks of age.
