"Con Brio is Born"
Well, actually it has been around a long time, in my art, crafting and some of my beloved Belgian Tervuren. BUT, the first litter of pups arrived on Feb. 25, 2012.
AKC/UKC CH Benjamin Con Brio de l'Aurore X Flamme Con Brio de l'Aurore
OFA: hips good, ,elbows OK, CERF clear '05 OFA hips good, elbows clear, CERF OK
24" tall, 55 lbs 22 1/2" tall, 42 lbs (not submitted)
Both dogs: no allergies, GI problems, seizures. Both have had success in AKC (Mira is pointed but still showing) and UKC (both all "excellent" ratings from multiple breeder judges), biddable and sweet temperaments, wonderful companions at home and traveling, alert and watchful but never aggressive with dogs or people, not pushy but have accepted every person and situation I have ever placed them in.
These puppies were God's idea (and Ben and Mira's), which is why they didn't yet have current CERFs and thyroid tests. This "litter" actually is line bred on my favorite boy of all time, with similar accepting, responsive, extremely trainable temperament: Ashley de faire l'affaire, Am. CD, Can. CD, HIT, HIC, CGC...and lot of other great dogs!
