Lady was pick-of-the litter from our pairing of Grace x Soldier, making her ½ American bred lines & ½ British bred lines. She is a petite girl, weighing just 48 pounds. Like her mom, she has a nice slender, athletic build and toned muscles. This girl is high drive when outdoors and could go all day retrieving or trailing scents. One of her most amazing qualities is her ability to focus on her person, regardless of distractions. She has a remarkable ‘off’ switch and can be called away from chasing critters in mid stride. Indoors she is calm, yet attentive to her people.
Lady was placed with her forever family near Madison when she was 13 months old. Some of her favorite things include swimming in Lake Michigan, retrieving literally anything, and “playing soccer” with her human sisters. She’s gentle and patient with a rambunctious 7-year-old and calm and comforting to the teenagers who let her sneak up on their beds. Lady loves to go where her people go – she’s as happy 'up north' running through the forest as she is walking on Lake Shore drive in Chicago. She’s confidant in any setting and is always focused on her family. No dog lover can pass her by without commenting on her stunning black coat.
Lady’s intelligence, incredible will to please, along with her foundness of treats and praise, has made training her fun and rewarding. Lady has earned the AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC), CGC Advanced, CGC Urban, Trick Dog Novice, Virtual Home Manners and Scent Work Beginner titles. She is currently working on her trick dog intermediate and scent work intermediate titles.
Lady received her Therapy Dog certification in February 2023. She will soon begin working alongside her human in a mental health crisis center and later in a psychiatric hospital unit for older adults.
