“H” Litter

Atlas x Diva

Northwoods First In Line x Avan Smithaus Vonderkings Diva

Atlas (Jaxx von Kelterhoff, Sch3 x Nicky’s Willow Leif, PSA1) is a retired police K9, owned, raised and trained by Lee Heighton. He was the Number 1 Regional USPCA Apprehension Dog for 2 years running and placed in the top 3 for the PD1 three years in a row. Atlas is OFA Good – radiographs taken at 8 years of age just after retirement. Atlas is the sire to Northwoods D & E litters.

Diva (CH Avan Smithaus Vonderkings Diva CSAU) is a tad on the smaller side weighing about 5olbs. She is very quick and athletic. Diva is environmentally stable, sure on all surfaces, and has a great prey, ball and hunt drive. Divas first litter produced some fantastic working dogs with 3 Males working in Law Enforcement (Mesa AZ, Bloomfield OH, and Michigan), 1 Male training for French Ring Sport and 2 Females training for French Ring Sport.

We are expecting Medium – Large puppies with a stable, forward, in your face attitude. If you are looking for a great working dog suitable for High Level Sport, Executive Protection or Police K9 this litter will be for you. Puppies should have great hunt, retrieve, prey and fight drives.

Special Thank you to Christie Meyer and Lee Heighton.
