Nuke was one of those puppies that just seemed special, every time you look at him.  He was able to catch your eye in every photo, and made his presence known in every room.  As an adult, he continues to carry that same charisma that was obvious from those first few weeks – he is the perfect combination of energy, athleticism, intelligence, and is as sweet and endearing as they come.  At almost two years of age, he has become a part of our pack, our home and our hearts in a way we know will be impossible to ever replicate.  


Nuke has been an enthusiastic puppy since day one – with a strong prey drive and will to work.  He has thoroughly enjoyed showing himself off in the conformation ring – earning his AKC Championship at 18 months of age.  He has further shown promise in a number of different forums – from coursing, to agility, to rally, to obedience, and most recently – tracking.  He picked up his first titles with ease at just 6 months of age, and continues to work towards proving his versatility.   


He is a joy to work with, and even more fun to watch.  Nuke is a flawless mover, agile, efficient, and light on his feet – with a perfect amount of bone and muscle.


Most recently, Nuke has proven himself in the litter box, and sired his first litter by means of live cover.  All 9 puppies (5 girls, 4 boys) were ridged, consistent in weight, and had minimal white.  We are excited to watch them grow.  


Nuke and his loving family are all very excited about this young man’s very bright future.
