|"Who is who, bet you can't tell!"|
|"Hi I'm Bebe the thin one, hehe"|
She would make an outstanding Police dog and hopefully she will give us some great future Police dogs. She lives with her carers Chris, Donna, Tom and Jake in Exeter.

Fortunately Bebe has good hips and hopefully she will produce pups with the same outstanding work potential inherited from her mother Molly.
|"Hi, I'm Qwendi, I have slightly bigger bones than Bebe which makes me stronger!"|
As soon as it became apparent that we would not be able to continue with Molly as a brood bitch I decided to purchase a future brood bitch from my contacts in the German Police dog section in Westfalen.
I collected her in October last year aged 4 months. She has been a revelation and she is so advanced that I was able to take part in this year’s Devon County show with her at the tender age of 11 months.
|"yep got him, OK what do you want me to do with him now!"|
During their assessments both girls were absolutely outstanding in every department and in terms of their suitability to perform the role of a Police dog it would be very hard to find dogs with better potential anywhere.
We plan to breed one more litter from our very successful brood bitch Ruby in the Autumn this year. That will be her 3rd and final litter and we will then transfer ownership over to her carer Mark Fairchild who will look after her for the rest of her life. She has already produced excellent dogs for us so far.
Her first litter of 7 pups the A litter were born in June 2013 and produced 6 operational Police dogs now working in Devon and Cornwall, Dorset and Avon and Somerset.
|"One, two..., thank god they are all sleeping, I'm exhausted"|
Her 2nd litter the C litter are due to start their operational Police course in January 2016. Although we have released 3 females from the litter due to their lack of size the 4 remaining pups look very exciting prospects. Her C litter are pictured here feeding out in the garden when they were a month old and sleeping afterwards.
I thought I would finish my blog this week with a few photo’s of little Billy who I am still puppy walking and I am enjoying having him. I am still somewhat lost without my old boy Spud as I have always had a male dog throughout my service. Billy is a real character and I only wish I was 20 years younger and able to work him as an operational Police dog. His eventual handler is going to be a very lucky handler.
Whilst it is only natural to enjoy his cuteness he is going to be a very strong assertive dog when he grows up. If you see him here in my friends conservatory he is saying to his very large 4 year old German Shepherd ‘Dodi’ this may be your house but this is my space and I will defend it.
|"I'm lying here ok!"|
|"It was him, I didn't tell him to do anything. Honest"|
|"Not doing anything..."|
Yesterday Billy met his first cow which at first he was happy to view from afar
Well that is all from me see you next time.
