Litter A

This litter is sired by Max and whelped by Evelyn. The litter consists of nine pups--four females and five males. These are outstanding puppies; as a litter they scored an average of 3.1 on the Volhard Apptitude Test. The description of puppies in the "threes" is as follows:

"Mostly 3's This pup is outgoing and friendly and will adjust well in situations in which he receives regular training and exercise. He has a flexible temperament that adapts well to different types of enviornment, provided he is handled correctly. May be too much dog for a family with small children or an elderly couple who are sedentary."{1]

Some of our pups average score is in the "fours;" these puppies are most suitable for people with more sedentary lifestyles or a family with small children. The description of puppies in the "fours" is as follows:

"Mostly 4's A pup that scores a majority of 4s is an easily controlled, adaptable puppy whose submissive nature will make him continually look to his master for leadership. This pup is easy to train, reliable with kids, and, though he lacks self-confidence, makes a high-quality family pet. He is usually less outgoing than a pup scoring in the 3's, but his demeanor is gentle and affectionate."[2]

An ocassional pup scores in the "twos." These pups require a more experienced handler, but have the potential to make excellent work or show dogs.The description of puppies in the twos is as follows:

"Mostly 2's This pup is dominant and self-assured. He can be provoked to bite; however he readily accepts human leadership that is firm, consistent and knowledgeable. This is not a dog for a tentative, indecisive individulal. In the right hands, he has the potential to become a fine working or show dog and could fit into an adult household, provided the owners know what they are doing."[3]
