Pincie Creek Australian Shepherds

Peters Ranch Like A "Rocket"

 

DOB 10-20-95
Blue Merle Bitch, White Trim
Blue Eyes
21 Inches, 55 Pounds

Rocket is one of our most prized possessions. She is all Hanginí Tree breeding from Gary Ericssonís foundation dogs. The Hanginí Tree lines are becoming increasingly difficult to find, especially those that descend directly from Garyís dogs, so Rocket is a treasure.

WTCH Hanginí Tree Dude and Rocket share the same sire. Dudeís mother, Hanginí Tree Roja, and Rocketís mother, Babe, are sisters. So Dude and Rocket are very closely related.

Rocket is a tall, rather lanky bitch, about 21 inches, weight about 50-55 pounds, moderate boned and coated. She would be considered a bit "leggy" by some standards but her legginess also contributes to her outstanding speed. She is very agile and athletic and carries herself well.  When she arrived as an eight week old puppy, she was very energetic and just flew around the yard at astonishing speeds.  Hence her name, "Like A Rocket".

Her intense and intelligent expression hints at the keenness and stock savvy that Rocket possesses. She is an excellent working dog with plenty of power and grit, gets a little rough sometimes with the sheep and goats but it is an excellent cattle dog. She hits heads and heels willingly and you donít have to encourage her to work!! She is enthusiastic, to say the least. Rocket is primarily a fetch dog but will drive if you need her to. She just wants to work -- any way, form or fashion that you will allow her to.

Rocket is also blessed with a good disposition - quiet, pleasant, obedient, very easily to live with, but with loads of personality.  She's a happy, smiley "wiggle butt" and passes this on to her offspring.   She is not an alpha bitch but is not submissive either, sort of "middle of the road". She travels well and is used to being inside; loves the radio, t.v., and Roger. Rocketís pups are very lucky to have her for a mother. She is very calm and patient with them, yet protective if another dog dares come around! She is a very easy breeder and whelper - we couldnít ask for a better brood bitch.

All in all, Rocket is a very welcome addition to Pincie Creek and is one of our most valued assets.
