Brick is a Woodsie son that we absolutely adore and couldn't live without. He has shown a ton of promise in the sports we have thrown him at - mostly weight pull, dock dive, rally obedience and barn hunt. He is a very easy going, laid back guy that has no real desire to do anything but is easily convinced to do sports with enthusiasm (much like his father). He is a ton of fun and we are so excited to see what the future has in store for him!
Brick is a puppy from an outside breeding we did with Woodsie and Breezy owned by Purity Bulls - both of his parents are heavily titled (over 55 titles between them) and fully health tested. Breezy is a force to be reckoned with on the weight pull track and holds her own in ADBA top dog competitions as well. We knew it was a nice breeding, but we did not anticipate finding our next dog in it - the plan was to place our pick of the litter in a Co-Own home. Brick ended up being too promising to let go.
Brick is an absolute show stopper in terms of correct structure and movement. He has very little white - just a few little splashes on his chest and tips of his toes. His eyes are quite light with a dark ring around the outside. He is quite square, proportionate and functional. He has beautiful feet and pasterns, a correct tail, and a correct clean bite with all teeth fully erupted. His shoulders and transition are lovely, and has a strong well put together rear - structurally, it doesn't get much sounder than this and it shows in how easily he gets going in physically demanding sports.
Height = 21.5"
Weight = 75lbs
Brick has a funny personality - he is quite easy going but has wonderful work ethic when requested. He is extremely food motivated and reminds me a lot of Woodsie with how quick he picks things up. In public and hectic situations, he is extremely levelheaded and calm and will just sit and watch his handler for direction and rewards. He is very quiet and thoughtful but brings the heat for sports when requested...but will turn it off as soon as he gets back to his kennel and puts himself down for a nap in between his turns at dock dive or weight pull. Dog people tend to call this a good "off switch." We joke about him being very serious about his "jobs" - he is all business when it comes to things he knows and he doesn't waste time or energy playing around for the fun of it. For example, he won't touch his tug on the dock for fun - I'm sure if he could talk, he would say "quit playing around and go set up the throw already!". He does the same thing with wall climb where he watches for you to put the tug up on the wall, he doesn't care for freebies on the ground and tends to ignore you (while staring at the wall) if you try.
He is a definitely a "bull in a china shop" when he gets excited but he loves humans deeply - he is convinced that everyone is his best friend, they just haven't met him yet! He is very appropriate in social situations and has played "decoy dog" for reactive dogs to work on building their confidence. He is truly a lovely dog to hang out with and is easy as they come to live, explore and train with.
Brick is now OPEN to select Health Tested females.
If you are interested in using him, we advise you contact us ASAP as we will be keeping his breeding's extremely limited and prefer to have things mapped out in advance. Please contact us here and include some information about your female, current or future health testing or titles if applicable, as well as your goals/ideas for the breeding.
