This litter is inbred on Dirk and it appears I have set Dirk's color, bomb-proof people-gentle temperament and high drives of the useful kind in his pups. In my quest to improve soundness in the Sorrells' line (Dirk is pure Sorrells) I can report that I have made significant improvements in fronts and rears. There is still work to do, as poor fronts, rears and feet are a "hallmark" of too many "gamebred" lines. I understood that going in and feel that with the continued professional evaluation help of world reknown author, judge, lecturer and expert on canine soundness, Pat Hastings, I can continue to improve soundness in a breed so desperately in need of attention in this area. Due to my health, this will be my last litter for the foreseeable future (or until I get additional assistace).
Damien represents the ultimate goal I had in mind when I set about this breeding program; a virtual clone of Dirk in strong temperament, type and drive. Damien I look forward to many fine days with this fine young dog. Damien is well along in his schutzhund training and pleases me more everyday.
