Meet our new boy:
Black Magic's Brave Justice
Black Magic's Golden Argus "Gus"
Gus is a very special boy out of Mija and Jamison. Both of his parents are black and tan, so he is a good solid white without too many recessive genes. He has a great temperament; loves people and loves to play. He is very good with children, like his parents. Gus is well over 100 lbs and is OFA good. Still growing!
A young Gus shows his excellent conformation. Gorgeous color, as well! He is just a lovely boy in every way.
Sunny, a 9 week old pup sired by Jamison. Out of Mija. Just a great example of what Jamison produces.
Some notes about color:
Our black and our white dogs produce mostly classic black and tan pups. So when you look at them, evaluate for conformation and temperament, not color. We are not color breeders; our top criteria is good health and temperament.
Joshua is super patient with babies and toddlers; extremely trustworthy.
