Harrison x Pelly Puppies Nine Weeks

I'm really really pleased with this litter, they are slowly but surely coming into their own and look better and better as each day passes. I'm thrilled to get such lovely puppies from this first time breeding for both parents. It looks as though our Argentina import Harrison is going to cross well on our Freddy (Ch Holmrun's Fred Astaire) bloodlines, as Pelly is a Freddy daughter.

Here are the puppies stacked up at nine weeks of age:

Black boy - staying at Braebrook for now.

Black collar red boy - going to a show/performance home.

 Black female #2 - staying at Braebrook for now.

Red boy - going to a wonderful pet home.

Black female #1 - going to a wonderful pet home.

As always, thank you so much to the Braebrook puppy people who provide such wonderful loving homes for our babies, you are part of the Braebrook family!

Some Updated Pictures of the Brody x Phoebe Puppies

The Brody x Phoebe litter is starting to grow up, at ten and a half months they are beginning to come into their own and I'm very pleased with what I see. I was able to take pictures of two of them yesterday and thought I would share.

Braebrook's We All Shine On has been shown one weekend so far and has four points towards his championship.

Braebrook's Revolution has yet to make her debut but we're very excited, I love her smooth flowing lines, nothing angular or out of place.

I'm really happy with how this particular breeding has come together, I think that Brody and Phoebe were a very nice nick and I am glad that several of the puppies will be shown towards their championships.

Harrison x Pelly 8 Weeks

The puppies are now eight weeks old, ear crops are done..time has absolutely flown by, I can't believe it. I'm very pleased with how Harrison and Pelly have produced. This is the first litter for both of them and they have not disappointed me. Not only are the puppies pretty but the temperaments are excellent, very outgoing and brave and they love people. I couldn't be happier.

Do You Need A Puppy Fix?

The puppies are growing up so fast and two of the GSP girls have already left to their new homes, the group is getting smaller which is always bittersweet. I love to see them join their new families and the photos and stories I get about the joy they bring just warms my heart, it makes the parting easier. I've lost track of how many times I've said it but thank you so much to all my puppy owners for being so great, you are all part of the extended Braebrook family and I'm lucky to have you.

Here are a few photos taken over the last couple of weeks. Some have already been shared to the Braebrook Kennels Facebook page and some are new. I hope you enjoy.

This is Hardy (Braebrook's Hard Luck) at 7.5 weeks. She is staying here at Braebrook.

This handsome boy is available to a loving home. He is very outgoing and confident, but also very sweet. He is going to make a wonderful pet for a lucky family. If you think that might be you you can email me at:

There's definitely some show potential happening here. This is the girl from the Harrison x Pelly litter who will likely be staying, tentatively named Allie. Pictured at 7 weeks.

And my Hardy girl again at 7.5 weeks.

Ella and Allie.

I adore this picture, truly the next generation. I love the concentration on her face while she stacks the  black boy puppy for me.

Ella and the other black girl.

My pick boy from the Vinnie x Libby litter, no name yet.

Ella and puppy. These puppies are so well socialized with children, such a great start for them.

Blowing bubbles for the babies.

My pick boy puppy again, and you can probably see why. I just love how he carries himself.

Watching the others from far away.

Oh those sharp puppy teeth!

If you have some new photos to share of your Braebrook puppy/dog (any age), please send them to me so I can include them in a future blog I just want to see them. ;)

Have a great weekend!

Ch Braebrook's Black Russian

Rush was one of only two puppies born from my Rogan (BIS/BISS Am Ch Cambria's Commander in Chief) and Safi (Am/Can Ch United's First Edition) litter in 2011. The litter was a frozen semen breeding and when the semen arrived it was not in great shape which can sometimes happen during shipping. We decided to go ahead with the breeding anyway as we had been preparing very hard for it (many progesterone tests etc..) and the timing was perfect. I'm glad we did! Rush was my pick from the point he and his brother were up on their feet. He had lovely carriage and would often strike a pose all on his own which gave me lots of great photos ops.

Once Rush was old enough to show I quickly put seven points and a couple of best puppy in group wins on him. You can actually see him here at seven months old winning some of those points.
When Rush was about a year a Doberman friend told me about this great home that was looking for a Doberman and were really interested in Rush. After many emails, texts and phone calls it was decided that Rush would join Sharon, Bryan and Kaleb in Alberta. A whole province away, but I felt very confident that they would love him just as much as I did. It was agreed that they would get the last three points for his championship which they (he) did by going Winners Dog on the Doberman Pinscher National Specialty weekend in Calgary. I was there to see it as I had flown in to attend the National and show Ch Braebrook's Hennessy "Bravo" as a special (we went first Award Of Merit but that's another story ;) ). I was thrilled with such a fabulous finish to his championship and under judge Pat Trotter too, whom I really respect.

Rush has been living the good life as a well loved pet (as all dogs should) for the last couple of years but just flew back to Braebrook a couple of days ago as he is going to make his contribution to our breeding program. It's a contribution he's thrilled about by the way. ;) I'm thrilled about it too as it will be his first litter and not only is he a beautiful dog with an excellent temperament, his pedigree is very very good. His dam Safi is one of my favourite bitches (please don't tell the others!) as she has wonderful bone and substance, a strong beautiful head, moves with huge reach and drive and carries a perfect top line. I'm thrilled to be getting a little bit of her back into the breeding program through Rush.

Here are some new photos of Rush taken yesterday at three and a half years of age:

He has a lovely head with a beautiful dark eye.

I love how smooth he is, like he was poured into his skin, nothing loose (which is a big no no in this breed). His shoulder is excellent, lovely long neck, short hocks and strong rear. He had a back injury quite awhile back (pulled a muscle being rowdy) and you can see it's affected his top line just a little bit but you'd never know it watching him run around the yard. His owners keep him in lovely condition and I'm so thankful to them for providing him with such a wonderful home and for allowing me to bring him here for breeding. 

Keep your fingers crossed for Rush puppies in June! More info to come soon.
