BlackFoot's There and Back Again


Sire: HRCH BlackFoot's Ticket To Ride, MH 
Dam: HRCH BlackFoot's Straight No Chaser, MH
Whelped: Dec 2, 2021
Genetics ALL CLEAR by parentage:
Shire is: Crate trained, house broken, solid started puppy obedience with stylish baited heads-up heeling. Excellent proprioception development. Formal obedience trained in German commands in prep for BH level obedience. VERY stylish & Super birdy, introduced to guns, swimming. Very social and confident puppy. 



Here are the basics to be considered for Shire's guardianship application:

  • Guardian home will take possession of Shire at no initial cost. 

  • Guardian home will be full responsible for ALL care, housing, veterinary, & training (financially and otherwise) of Shire. 

  • Guardian home MUST be an active & PROVEN successful sport home (hunt test, agility, detection, obedience etc..) 

  • Guardian must agree to title shire in the sport(s) of their choice. *If a detection home, certified in the appropriate area of her strength.

  • In the event that Shire is 'washed out' for training purposes she must be returned to BlackFoot or, pursue a secondary sport with the guardian.   

  • In the event that she is is injured to the extent that she cannot 'work' the discussion will be had as to where she shall "retire." 

  • Shire will NOT live in an outdoor kennel environment on a full time basis. She must remain at least 75% of her life living as an indoor house dog. 

  • A guardianship contract will be agreed upon where Shire will come back to BlackFoot to be bred to the sire of our choice for a maximum of 2 litters during her reproductive years (TBD and agreed upon by all co owners). 

  • BlackFoot will be responsible for all breeding expenses.

  • Guardian home will be responsible for Shire's Health clearance expenses. 

  • Guardian home will retain the breeding rights to Shire for ONE litter (That litter can be bred here at BlackFoot in exchange for a keeper puppy), or, be done under guardian's care (TBD). 

  • Shire will not be bred more than 3 times in her lifetime/career. 

  • A Guardian home for Shire will be special placement: we must maintain an open channel of communication but ultimately she will be the GUARDIAN'S dog ... to LOVE, TRAIN, ENJOY, SUCCEED WITH, and CHERISH !
