Orchard Hill Ranch
2013 Litter - Foliar Farm's Bodhi x Ember
Ember was bred to Foliar Farms' Bodhi in May, and she had eight puppies on July 2, 2013. I expect pups from this litter to have great temperaments, be quite biddable, and have the full range of working instincts. My aim for this breeding was to produce pups with Ember's thoughtful, intuitive working style with Bodhi's higher drive and power. Pups will be fully registered with the ESCR, and eligible for registration with the UKC.
Wren stayed Wren, and went to live in western Oregon with a long-time friend of mine. Wren's job is to provide protection for the cattle, sheep, and chickens on a small farm. She is OFA Fair, and had her first litter in the spring of 2016.
Finch became Loki, and stayed right here at Orchard Hill as my husband's dog. He is a big, friendly, athletic, and quirky dog. He is very soft, yet can be stubbornly determined in some situations. He is a wonderful companion.
Marsh remained Marsh, and went to live in Calgary, Alberta. He was mousing at 10 weeks, and has been a joy to his owners, who wanted a dog like Ember, and got what they wanted.
Townsend became Tanner II, and went to Billings, Montana, where he is a companion to a man who had recently lost his English shepherd. Tanner goes to work with him every day, and has been a great greeter.
Calli remained Calli, and went to live in Utah where she helps with a small flock of sheep and keeps deer out of the orchard and garden.
Kestral became Kesta and went to eastern Washington where he is a 4H dog for a young boy.
Merlin became Buddy, and went to live on a dairy farm in South Dakota, with the people who owned Ember's grandsire, Abe. He rides on the 4-wheeler, and sleeps in a heated barn at night.
Ruff became Duke, and went to live in eastern Washington on a cattle farm.
