When Cheryle told me she was going to breed Gabby to Shamu in 2020 I quickly started researching this pedigree as I had a few friends looking for a puppy.  I knew Gabby's pedigree well and that there was exceptional longevity.  After completing my research I was impressed to see Shamu also has a pedigree with exceptional longevity.  I was sad that I wasn't ready for a puppy but thrilled I could refer a few friends to Cheryle.  Sadly, Gabby didn't get pregnant.  Cheryle decided to try again and this time I was in a place to have another puppy.  After my research I decided I wanted a bitch to hopefully start my breeding program with.  Gabby had other plans as she gave birth to a singleton boy.  My heart said you need that puppy with the first photo I saw, but I really wanted a girl. Long story short DJ has given much happiness to me after a very hard 5 years in this breed.  My journey is different than most.  I do things different than nearly everyone.  Longevity is important to me.  Health is important to me.   Temperament is important to me.  Raising dogs naturally is important to me.  While winning is important to me, I will not sacrifice the prior mentioned things for ribbons.  I have gained the courage and guts to do what is right regardless of what anyone else thinks or says "the road less traveled"

DJ has a broad flat skull with an intelligent, animated gentle expression.  He has tight flews and correct eye shape.  He has a beautiful balanced side gait with excellent reach and drive.  His shoulders are moderately laid back and flat laying.  He has correct return of upper arm.  His neck is muscular and of medium length.  He has very sturdy bone. His front is clean coming.  

DJ has the ideal temperament.  He is confident and good natured and very smart.  He is always wagging so hard his whole body goes along with the tail!
