These pups come from a top-producing show lineage known for health, longevity, and solid temperaments suitable for working a job, companionship, sport, and show. They will develop red and black coloring with excellent conformation and fantastic temperaments. Velvet is a top female and the father, Ricco, consistently improves movement, conformation, coloring, and produces wonderful temperaments. Most importantly, his characteristics perfectly compliment Velvet's. Ricco is actually father to two of our adult girls—Jessen and Gwen! And his father is TWICE world champion, top producer, and is considered a Shepherd legend, VA1 Vegas Du Haut Mansard.

Hope is a very sweet and outgoing girl, playful, and highly intelligent. She would excel in show and sport while being the most loyal and delightful companion and guardian. Her coloring is very rich red and black and her anatomy is phenomenal. Hope embodies the excellence that every top breeder strives and hopes to produce.
She has confidence and drive for fun play, but she's calm, collected, and a total cuddler. She's fearless, but loyal and you'll find her always by your side. She loves to please and enjoys training with beautiful focus. It's a delight to teach her because she's also incredibly smart. Her personality is sweet and you'll often catch her looking at you with all the love her little heart can handle. She's such an easy-going and fun pup to have around.

We're a recognized AKC Bred with H.E.A.R.T. breeder!
Through continued education, we strive for ongoing improvement. We have agreed to and have already undergone routine inspection by the AKC and received high praise. We go above simply breeding two excellent dogs to produce quality pups; our goal is to also set our puppies up for success in health and temperament by how we raise them. Our focus can be summed into three areas: socialization, nutrition, and environmental factors. All three can determine a puppy's lifelong emotional and physical health.
