Zaga is a very soft, sweet girl, but not afraid to voice her displeasure about not being the center of attention. She is brave and tackles stairs and obstacles like a pro She should be a fine working dog in a couple years. After living with experienced raisers and lots of other dogs for playmates (including a new litter) she moved on to her next phase with the inmates at Oxford. After an all to brief return to her original puppy raisers, she moved a bit further west to her new raiser followed by a return to her original raisers again.
She has been evaluated and she is so special, that while she continues training, she is destined to become a mama and produce many guide dogs in the future.
Zaga gave birth to the “B” litter on 11/18/2020 by natural delivery, however she gave us a scare, deciding to take a 5 hour nap between puppies 3 and 4!. She had 3 chocolates – 2 girls and a boy and 4 blacks – 3 boys and a girl.
Zaga had a second litter, the F litter, 4 girls and 2 boys, all black, born on 7/17/21 by natural delivery. Never being one to not put a scare into us again, the firstborn was huge, not in a sac and no placenta and not breathing. After several minutes of work and suctioning, little miss red (Frankee) took her first breath and her tongue went from blue to pink! Whew.
