|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 two daughters close to finishing their Championships as well. Watch for
her progeny in the conformation and agility rings. Click here to see photos of her pups.
