New Litter At Belaire
We have been very busy around Belaire waiting and watching for our litter of Sheltie puppies and they finally arrived. Born Feb. Monday the 26th.
The Dam is Sarah.."Jerecort Belaire Serendipity" my "JJ" daughter and the sire is Surfer..."Lorain's Hangin Ten At Belaire". There are 5 puppies, 3 females and 2 males, all sable and white and so far everyone is doing just fine. Sarah is a great mother! In the pictures they are only 2 days old and there will be more pictures to come in time.
This breeding was a total outcross from what I have been doing for years, trying to bring new blood into my breeding program. Surfer's sire comes down from the Ross Roi lines of which I have admired for years. Along with his Dam that brings in not only the performance end of Lorain Shelties but best of Westwind and Primo in conformation.
This litter is Futurity Nominated for the 2008 ASSA National, It will be so interesting to watch them grow!!
