It's official- we have a new family member! Kolachi Astrid was born on June 23rd, and is currently 3 weeks old. I visited River Rock Kennels myself to confirm the breeder's selection for us. "Red Collar Girl", as she was formerly known, will now and forever be our little Kolachi-dog.
Zoa picked this pup for us because of her mellow personality and easy-going temperament. Plans are to get her Therapy Dog certified in a year or so, so we needed a low-key, calm dog to meet our criteria. However, the red collar is given to the puppy who shows the most intelligence and problem-solving initiative . She'll need lots of brain games and stimulation to keep her busy! Good thing I have two little trainers at home ready to work--
Mama and Daughter- you can see Karla is a red & black GSD (as opposed to a tan & black)- our breeder thinks that Kolachi will be red & black too-- I'm (in theory) impartial as to coat color, but that red is intense and beautiful!
