Well lets see, I live in Greenville SC with my husband and *just turned* one year old son. I've been in the dog world since I was 8 years old that's when I started to learn to show and train. At 14 is when I stated my apprenticeship in grooming and higher level training and did that for 4 1/2 years. I like showing, doing agility, obedience ect. But my real passion is for Ring Sport, PSA, and KNPV. As well as genetics I love me some genetics.

My big loves in dogs are Molossers, Sighthounds and Cur's. I am planning on importing a Caravan hound from Indian with in the next few years. I am working with many men there in talking about making an Indian breed club here, that would serve the purpose of preserving the working qualities of the breeds, help to screen the homes here, and put people in contact with *reputable* breeders in India.

I dont have any dogs right now I had a young Doberman, Z he was going to be my Ring dog but the temperament just wasn't there. He was still the best little guy so bright it was scary ever for a dobe, I lost him at just 8 months to a mass that had developed on the brain. It about killed me he was an amazing little monster, I doubt Ill eve be able to have another dobe after him he was one of a kind.

Sorry if this is a bit disjointed I lost my previous post. :/

Well I started in the dog world at 8 Jr showing and training, started my real grooming and training apprenticeship at 14. I like showing, Ob trials, agility ect but my real love is Sport work. Im not fond of Sch personally FR, Mondio, PSA, and especially KNPV are more my thing.

My taste in breeds is VERY varied I love Sighthounds, Molossers, Curs, Riesenschnauzer, and (sport bred) herders like Picard, the three Bouviers, KNPV line Dutchie ect.

I also LOVE studying canine genetics as well as breeds much to my husbands dismay but he know more then your average layman because of me ha! I dont have any dogs right now but Im planning to import a Caravan Hound in the next few years if everything pans out. Im working with a number of Indian men in making an Indian breed club here. The club will serve the purpose of helping to preserve the breeds, screen potential homes, and help people here get in touch with *reputable* breeders there.

I am just now able to think of getting another dog. About a year ago I lost my 8 month old Doberman Z to a mass in the brain. He wasnt going to be a working dog he just wasn't right for that and in part I think the mass was what hindered him, but he was BRIGHT even for a dobe. I dont think I will be able to have another after him.
