The sire is Ch. Sagi Bailywick Tintagel's Pride, RN, RA, TT, CGC, TDI, HIC (Tai). Tai is an exceptional dog well known for his outstanding temperament. Tai has sired 5 litters and consistently produced offspring who share his steady, outgoing personality. He has multiple children who are active therapy dogs as well as a few who are working service dogs. He now has a granddaughter who is a service dog in training. As demonstrated by his multiple titles, Tai is a versatile dog who is game to engage in whatever activity I ask of him. In addition to good character and brains, Tai exemplifies the correct physical qualities of the Briard. He was rated Select under two European judges in September 2010, has been awarded Best Veteran in Sweeps, Best of Opposite Veteran in Sweeps as well as winning his class at the BCA National two years running. At 8 1/2 years old Tai is in full swing with the attitude and stamina of a 3 year old. Tai's daughter Raven was recently honored with an Award of Excellence and Best Bred By Exhibitor at the Eukanuba Dog Show in CA, December 2010. In 2009, Raven received an Award of Merit at the BCA National Specialist under French Briard specialist judge Herve Blasselle.
The dam of this litter is Tintagel's Cielo Azul de Beardsanbrow, HIC (Cielo). Cielo is a very funny, active, good natured girl. She is half way through her American Championship and has taken some time off from the show ring to mature, grow a little more coat and have a litter. She easily earned her Herding Instinct Certificate and has dallied a bit in agility. She would be an agility powerhouse if I had the time to get her more seriously involved.
Cielo is an excellent mother and produced puppies of good character and substance.
