8 Puppies were born June 19th, Father's Day. Five girls, three boys. Updates and evaluations are posted on the blog! Additional photos are posted on the Facebook Page.

Puppies have lovely drives and temperaments and correct structure. There are 5 greys/sables and 3 Red/Fawn.

There are 6 puppies with very solid SAR potential by early evaluation, and the other two showed great promise for detection if not SAR - great promise and drive in ALL the puppies from this litter.

2 Puppies have gone to Basquelaine to continue the breeding program there, Blue Boy ("Vallon" Basquelaine Amsterdam of Intention Hill, and "Lourdes" Basquelaine Alluring of Intention Hill).

Red Girl (Basquelaine Aanandi of Intention Hill) was chosen to remain with Intention Hill. Her character is exceptionally stable, and she presents just a lovely presence. Aanandi has been showing periodically in regional areas, and was Reserve Winners Bitch at the ABTC 2013 National Specialty in Portland, Oregon. Due to an injury to her tongue, and her heavier coat, I did not choose to start Aanandi in SAR. SAR dogs need to have great heat tolerance, and Anandi is disadvantaged in that area. Aanandi was bred in 2015, and produced the C Litter of Intention Hill.

Orange Boy (Basquelaine Anuraag of Intention Hill) went to Canada to train in Agility and Rally. He earned his CGN and HIT very early on, as well as many Disc Dog titles, including his Disc Dog Championship. Anu (Novak) became the Regional Champion in 2014. Unfortunately he sustained a serious injury while in the care of a sitter. The injury prevents him from continuing in agility competition, and might have ended all his sports endeavors. However, after a year off, and lots of swimming, Novak is competing again in Disc Dog. He has also begun Sporting Detection (SDDA) competition in 2016, and is showing the same excellent detection skills of his mother and other relatives that work in SAR and detection. Novak is a social and friendly dog.

Aqua Boy (Basquelaine Amal of Intention Hill) went to a companion home in Montana. The home also serves as a sanctuary for wolves. There he has served in helping to tame, medicate and rear some of the sanctuary wolves. Mulder is a very social and friendly dog, with a high level of empathy for people and animals which are infirm.

Green Girl (Basquelaine Abhithi of Intention Hill) was initially available for sale, but I didn't find the kind of home I wanted for her. She is all athlete, and can be both a lot of dog, and a mamma's girl. In 2016, I decided to send her to live with a family that has a dog from my B Litter. They train that dog in agility, and may train Abhithi in agility also. I had started to train Abhithi in SAR, and she initially showed great promise. She started to waver in her commitment, and had no signs of illness in her extensive medical workup. Since she could also demonstrate some pack dominance, I decided a home where she could fulfill the wish of her new owner, to have a dog completely devoted to her, and possibly train in agility, was the greatest blessing I could give Abhithi. She has only one other dog to contend with, "Thor" Bashir of Intention Hill, and they are great friends. Thor is a daddy's boy, so this gives both husband and wife a dog to call their own.

Yellow Girl (Basquelaine Aarti of Intention Hill) now resides in Long Island NYas a family companion. The family aspires to work with her in therapy venues. Aarti is a perfect sweet dog for this family. She is gentle with them, an important trait since the two daughters never had dogs before. Aarti showed tremendous maternal instincts, and raised the B Litter as a nanny for Savannah. Savannah would nurse them, then Aarti would take over. Aarti was kind to all people while in my care, but was not as open to other dogs, without being aggressive.

Pink Girl (Basquelaine Ashwini of Intention Hill) remains at Intention Hill, and is many things to me. She is mostly my sidekick - I can take her anywhere, including the sheep pens. She is a lovely, gentle soul. I have and had many aspirations for Pinkie, such as Conservation Detection, Obedience, Rally and Freestyle. She is a delight to live with. She is soft, but high drive, and fairly hectic. She learns very fast, moves very swift, and is very much like a Border Collie. She has strong "eye" for a Belgian, though in herding terms, she'd be quite soft and need a supportive handler to build her confidence. So far, I have competed in Rally with Pinkie. She is my first dog to compete in any form of obedience with. She has earned her Rally Novice, and needs one leg of Rally Advanced.Savannah
