|Aurora is a stunning dark black and tan female. She is one of two superstar's from this
litter. See her sister Alaska's page for the other one. Aurora is one of our conformation
dogs. Her headpiece is a ten, (or so I've been told by several judges and handlers). She
has perfect ears and gorgeous dark eyes with a mischevious twinkle in them. Aurora
has fluid movement and is clean coming and going with a balanced fore and
hindquarter. She has very strong and thick bone, yet maintains the petite size of a
typical female-as she is only 70 pounds.
Aurora completed her CGC at only 9 months of age and has proven to be a very
intelligent dog just like her mother. She learns quickly and easily and is a joy to train.
She excelled at agility and dabbled in some obedience, but she really loves to herd
sheep. Aurora earned her TC (temperament certification) awarded by the GSDCA in
April 2010. Aurora has OFA good hips, and certified normal elbows, heart, and thyroid,
and has been tested for DM (degenerative myelopathy). She earned her Rally Novice
(RN) in April 2011, her Novice Agility Preferred in August 2011, her Novice Agility in May
2013 and her Novice Fast is October 2013.
She is took a break from conformation for a couple years while she was being a
wonderful mother. Aurora was busy at the GSDCA National Specialty show in October
2014 and earned 3 new titles-Beginner Novice Obedience, Novice Agility Jumpers
Preferred, and Novice Fast Preferred. She earned her Herding Instinct Certificate also in
October 2014. She earned her Pre trail tested title for sheep herding in September 2015.
Aurora is an AKC Champion!! She has earned BOB, several BOS and a Bred By Herding
Group 1st. Aurora earned her Dual Award Excellent title from the GSDCA in 2015 for her
Championship and performance titles. Aurora has proven to be an excellent producer
and has a Champion son and a daughter close to finishing her Championship as well.
Watch for her progeny in the conformation and agility rings. She has been bred for her
4th and final litter expected in December 2015!! Click here to see photos of her pups.
