For the BasqueLaine/Geka "Shades of Grey" litter we selected the handsome and talented Hunter for Wings. Hunter is a UKC champion, AKC pointed, has his herding PT and JHD titles and two legs in Herding Started on sheep. He is also enjoying barn hunt and recently earned his RATN title with two High in Trials. Hunter is also an AKC Canine Good Citizen. Hunter has OFA health clearances for hips, elbows, eyes, thyroid, heart and dentition. Like Wings, Hunter is what we call a "grey" Tervuren. All of the puppies will be in shades of grey/beige/cream with black overlay and black mask. There will be no red/mahoganny colored Tervuren in this litter.
Week 8 has been busy. Pups had their first Vet visit and vaccinations (all checked out healthy), first spa day with bath, blow drying and brushing, and we started seeing puppies off to their new homes. With it being so hectic I haven't had much time for photos. Here are the boys after their bath and grooming. Girls coming up by end of weekend. Dark Blue and Orange boys flew on a plane to their new homes!
The puppies are really active and constantly on the move exploring things. This makes it difficult to get photos. Either they arent still enough or they are too close to photograph, typically on my feet tugging shoelaces. Yes, the tugging has begun. Pink girl is the spitfire of the bunch, she loves a game of tug. Some of the others join in too.
The M litter at 4 wks old. Puppies personalities are starting to shine through. They are now very aware of objects and people in their surroundings, and will toddle over to me when called to be picked up. They play a lot with each other and with toys. Theyve had opportunities to explore the great outdoor with supervision. A very cute and fun age. All the pups are very social and outgoing. Girls are Lavender, Pink and Lime ribbons. Boys are Sky Blue, Royal Blue, and Orange ribbons.
Locked N Loaded du Musher "Pistol"
Pistol was imported from Kennel du Musher in France, breeder Mario Pessel. Pistol is co-owned by and lives and trains with Anna Balsamo in New York. Pistol's pedigree is 100% working lines.

Pistol's sire is the highly accomplished working Tervuren, FR3/SEL Gadgo du Fosseret. Pistol's dam is the proven brood female Easy du Musher. Anna and Pistol are training in Mondioring and Agility. We have great hopes for this young girl. Pistol is a grey/sable in color.
