Brooke (CH AllAround Swift Running Brooke AX, AXJ, RI, HT, DN, DJ, TKN, CGCA, VX)
& Bean (GCHS Highlander MacBean at Burlesque HT RN)
Sage is from my August 9, 2019, litter of Brooke to Bean. There were only two puppies in the litter - both beautifully marked black and white females. I agonized over which puppy to keep but finally settled on Sage. Sage is a gorgeous girl with a fantastic temperament. She is extremely sweet and snuggly yet also spunky with a great sense of humor. She is extremely intelligent and picks up on things very quickly. She's everything I strive to breed for - intelligence, athleticism, and structure, all rolled into one sweet package. Not only is she gorgeous (she won Winners Batch at the Bearded Collie Club of America National Specialty - her first show!!!), she also is extremely driven competing in agility, rally, obedience, Fast CAT and other sporting venues.
