Tali and Memphis

November 2023 Litter
Shire and Memphis

Description of the Dam

Peaslee’s Talisman (Tali) is affectionate, intelligent, resilient, and enthusiastic in her approach to life.  She is happy working livestock (sheep, goats, ducks), hunting for mice in the barn, lounging on the couch watching Netflix, or accompanying me on road trips. Sweet-natured and curious, she gets along well with other dogs.  Our agility teacher describes her as “very patient” – which is perfect for me!  Tali has advanced level herding titles (HRD IIIs & HTAD IIIs) and earned several “high in class” awards in her first barn hunt trial this summer – she is self taught!  She keeps an eye on our property, dispatching mice & voles and running off coyotes and hawks. 

Tali is 3 1/2 years old, medium size (21″ and 38#) & very athletic, with a feminine build and features.  Her hips are OFA good, eyes normal (2023 exam) and she is clear for all the genetic disorders included on the Embark panel (196).  Tali is loosely linebred on my foundation female, Peaslee’s  Brighton, with a genetic COI of 5%.  She is registered with United Kennel Club.

Description of  Sire

Snowy Rivers’ Majestic Memphis is a friendly, easy-going and athletic dog.  He has exceptional social skills and a kind, biddable nature.  He lives on a ranch in Oregon and assists with farm chores as well as helping out as a demo dog in his owner’s dog-training classes.  He also works as a therapy dog in a local assisted living facility. Memphis helps rid the property of squirrels, rodents, and runs off coyotes and hawks. He loves to retrieve and will carry an empty feed bag or feed container when out doing chores. Memphis has solid natural herding instincts and a strong desire to work in partnership with his owner.  He enjoys training, participating in barn hunt, scent work, parkour, and readily learning tricks.

At 9 years of age, Memphis has a moderate build, 22″ and 53 lbs, with a broad head and thick ruff.  His hips are OFA good and Embark panel clear for MDR-1, CEA, PRA-prcd and DM. Memphis is linebred on the cross between Snowy River Sadie Lady & Porter’s Cyrus Jim.  He is registered with United Kennel Club.


Litter

I expect puppies from Tali and Memphis to be very social, athletic, and quick to learn.  They should be suitable for active family homes, dog sports, and as farm helpers.  The estimated genetic COI for this match is 5% and the generation interval is 6 1/2 years.  Both parents are sound, healthy dogs and we expect the puppies to be as well.  Coat colors expected are sable, seal and black (all with white markings).

These puppies will be closely related to my October 2022 litter, out of Shire (Tali’s mom) and Memphis.  Those puppies are thriving in a variety of different roles; as a group they are very social, sweet natured, and extremely intelligent.
