handsome guy is our sweet little lover boy! There's hardly a dull moment
when he's around. He's a nose-nudger
when he wants your attention, and quite the Licky-Lou, whether he's letting you
much he loves you, or checking something new out (first he sniffs it,
gives it a quick lick). He is very playful, his all-time favorite game
being Keep-Away, whether it's with a ball, a bone or a twig. Or, if there's no one
to play with, he'll glady throw a toy in the air for himself to fetch.
He's a happy boy who really loves to have fun. He's about
the biggest Momma's Boy you'll ever see, and a grinner to boot. He's quite the jumper, too, with a lot
of spring in his step. He can also be very lazy when he wants to be, earning himself
the nickname "Pokey". Sonny has a pleasant temperament and is a very fast learner. He's maturing
into a very handsome boy, with excellent structure and gorgeous movement. We're very excited to add his bloodlines
to our kennel foundation! Sonny's sire is pure Mistretta, a linebred grandson of
HOF WTCH Mistrettas Painted Lizard, the Mistretta's first Hall of Fame
sire. Sonny's dam is a nice blend of Rosewood, Summertime and Starcross lines,
bred my Coronado. As a puppy, Sonny was shown in conformation, but we
decided to take a break from the breed ring, while he matured more and
we focused primarily on his Rally training. When tested on sheep,
Sonny proved that he thoroughly enjoys working livestock!
He has excellent fetching instincts, and watches heads very nicely. He's also dabbled a
bit in agility, learning the equipment, and showing that he
has a natural knack for the sport. His debut weekend in Rally,
he earned his AKC Novice title! I'm so proud of my Sonny
Thank you to Tony and Eileen Coronado for letting us have this wonderful boy!
