aka “JOLENE”

It had been a long time since I purchased a dog. How-ever, in everyone’s breeding program there comes that time. I needed a bitch that was complementary to my line, but not so closely related to my males. When Heidi Scheff had her litter out of Ace (2017 National Grand Champion) and Sushi in September of 2016, there were only 2 females. Heidi was going to keep one.

I let Heidi know that I was interested if the bitch was phenotypically suited to my males, was genetically suited as well, but not as tight a line breed, could single track front and rear, and probably too many other qualities to mention.

In December of 2016, I traveled to Heidi’s to see the 2 females. I told her not to tell me the one she wanted to keep. I evaluated the females, and then told Heidi which one I wanted. I guess it was meant to be that Heidi wanted to keep the one I did not choose.

Jolene has surpassed all of my expectations. At the tender age of 19 months, she finished her Grand Championship under 5 different judges. Jolene finished her AKC Championship in Rochester, MN in September of 2018 and her AKC GR Championship at the OKC Summer Olympics in June of 2019. She finished on Friday and placed in the ribbons every day she was entered that week. I can only hope she will be as good a producer as she is a show dog. A beautiful, typey bitch that is structurally sound with an excellent temperament. Thank you Heidi!
