"K" Litter (Baloo x Lyric)

[See Gallery | Jump to Pedigree]

The Baloo x Lyric litter arrived March 25, 2009 with three boys and four girls.

"Lyric" - Sprite's Dynamic Fanfare - Lyric is an all purpose ranch dog. She is actively involved in the daily management of livestock on Timberland Acres Ranch in Washington state. She is strong enough to move intractable animals, but obedient and well behaved with easier livestock. While not competing in formal training events, she shows many qualities which are valued by Sprite tervuren for performance animals. These include high play drive, excellent energy, good pack drive, sociability with everyone including strangers and children, athleticism, adaptability and stability. She also shows no dog aggression.

Lyric's pedigree is 1/8 show lines and 7/8 working lines. Her show lines come through her grandsire, Justin (one of my foundation dogs). Justin was himself a SchH3 dog. Her sire is Forte, a SchH3 FH male who has competed successfully on a national level. Lyric's working lines come through her dam, Isis. Isis is a "V" rated schutzhund dog with an excellent temperament and very strong working drives.

Lyric shows excellent health and is OFA excellent hips, clear elbows and clear eyes, as are her sire and grandsire. She has full dentition and a correct bite. She is seizure free at five years of age.

This breeding is expected to take place in early 2009. Molly Butler is the breeder of this litter, which will be co-bred with Sprite.

"Baloo" (Sprite's Hullabaloo) is a product of Sprite's "H" litter (Soja x Quake).

While still young, Baloo is showing strong promise in his training for both AKC obedience and schutzhund trials. Baloo has many of the best qualities of both of his parents; excellent energy and drives, focus, trainability, intelligence, athleticism, high play drive, courage and sociability. His bite is hard and full for schutzhund and his tracking is quiet and intense. Obedience is lively and accurate.

Baloo's mother Soja is a well known agility dog who has competed at the highest levels of AKC and USDAA. She is also a Schh3 and high in trial winning UD. Baloo's sire Quake is a strong High In Trial winning SchH3 male who is currently training in agility where his talent is obvious. Quake is a full littermate to Tilt, who placed second overall at the AKC agility invitationals in Long Beach, CA in 2008.

Baloo is OFA Excellent hips, clear elbows, thyroid normal and CERF clear.

This litter is a linebreeding on Lewis, one of the most influential sires in France for ringsport. Lewis is known for his energy, prey drive, trainability, sociability and extreme success in the sport of Ringsport.

Temperamentally, you can expect these puppies to have more confidence, stability, activity, and prey drive than the average Terv. I expect a range of temperaments, suitable for active pet, performance or working homes.
