Zephyr

Zephyr If you’ve seen the winter 2006 cover of Citydog magazine then you’ve seen Zephyr. A 8 1/2 yr. old Rottweiler, Doberman, Shepherd mix, he loves attention and loves to show off in front of the camera. Zephyr is a dog with a ton of personality, always ready to go for a hike and is the clown of the famly. Zephyr has been through several obedience courses so not only does he have good looks, but he is smart too.

Tala

Tala Last but not least. Tala is a 5 year old red merle Australian Shepherd. She was born deaf and partially blind. Does that slow her down? No Way! Tala is an aussie through and through, always needing a job to keep her busy, which often consists of herding our other dogs. Because she is deaf Tala is trained on hand signals only. She likes to come train with me when I need dog distractions. Since she can’t hear what they are barking at her it doesn’t hurt her feelings.
