Widdershins White-Footed Astrid
“White-footed Astrid, -ah, but she is beautiful!-
Nightly seeks the secret of the world in the moon…”
So far, Astrid represents everything we were looking for in our next generation – people-oriented, gentle, easy temperament, fearless. This puppy is so promising, we wanted to be sure she had every chance to realize her potential. She lives with a friend in Portland who specializes in dog training and also owns Astrid’s great-aunt Posey Alice.
Astrid is from our crossbreeding project, being 1/4 border collie on her sire’s side. We’re very pleased with where our bid for genetic diversity has taken us so far!
Update 2018: Astrid has raised her litter and is now enjoying a well-deserved retirement from our breeding program.
Her health testing results:
- CEA: CERF Normal-eyed
- MDR1: normal/normal by parentage
- DM: Clear per GenSol
- Cyclic Neutropenia: Clear per GenSol
- DMS: 009:01/009:01 aa bb (low risk per Clemson University)
