Ok, so I met up with the other owners of the 2 male brothers. They are both good looking dogs, but I still think Carbon is the better looking as far as markings go.... Call me biased :roll:
Achilles

Dutch

And I'll throw in a few of Carbon looking FIERCE during bitework



And here's one of him without his big yap open (taken from the view from the sleeve)

Yes, she's never had such a LIGHT dog come from a BoxReba! All of us were astounded, and to be honest I think Dutch is downright ugly! He is already neutered because of pigment and because he can be fearful (I honestly think it's the owner's fault, but oh well). The owners absolutely love him, and he is a real dollbaby, but I am SO GLAD I didn't pick him! We aren't sure, but he may be a throwback in mom's pedigree, although the lack of a black muzzle is nowhere in any pedigrees that I can find.

I don't think he's ugly, but he's just funny looking. It's like his DNA couldn't decide whether he should be sable or black and tan, so they 'compromised' and did both. Just strange.

Mike there are some show dogs that are crossed with working lines that are pretty tuff. :wink:
haha I know, I was kidding about that, heck I know some "pure" showdogs that are pretty tough, one is a police K9 for the county, he hospitalized the suspect on his first street bite.

He reminds me of a GSD that was imported from Holland by someone I know actually, a very light sable, but man that dog had drive up the wazoo!

Plus he is still young, some sables don't have their true color until they are 3 years old. He has nice dark eyes, & the red on his head is a pretty nice deep red. All said & done, though Carbon is definetly the pick of the litter.

Oh, I didn't mean so much that he's completely UGLY... I'm just biased and I think Carbon's nicer looking..lol

And here I was, thinking how cool Dutch was because he didn't look like your average hybrid... :lol: I really LIKE unusual-looking dogs. And, my entire life, I've felt horribly guilty for thinking any animal was ugly, and have always tried to bring home the misfits :oops: ...although I think I failed miserably w/Caleb. Well, unless you get to know him. :lol:
