Only a tentative yes on the new kid.

Pixie is from a backyard breeder so her structure is a nightmare. However, she's always had a great work ethic and was a breeze to train. She's not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but she has a lot of heart and always tried her best.

Emma is from titled parents and I'm sure many people would have bred her. She's fine with other dogs, is trainable (trial-able is a different story!), very athletic, amazing prey drive (which often interferes with training) and so-so structure. But she's fearful of random inanimate objects and she has higher anxiety than i'd like in a staf. Her granddam and her sire lived into their teens.

If someone would have approached me with a nice bitch i would have bred my BC. He's a rockstar in training and quite nice structure wise. He's titled on both ends and cleared a few health tests. Breeding a male seems difficult though, especially if you have goals with a litter. The sport people saw him as too barbie and the conformation people thought he wasn't typey enough. *shrug*

Ash is a nightmare of behavior issues, despite his fairly nice structure.

Nova is the golden child. I've waited near a decade for good bloodlines and she was worth it. Awesome temperament, stable, trainable, useful drives, fearless with an off switch. Nice moderate structure that i'm hoping improves with age. However, she has some minor faults that i think will hold her back in AKC (are those HOUND ears?). We are going to try UKC and possibly ADBA and see what she does. If her health tests are all clear she might be knocked up by her 5th birthday.
