Rhiannon - Cascadias Umbra Penumbra CD RA AX AXJ FDCh-S HIC

About Rhiannon:

Rhiannon is from our very first litter of Briards and a pretty nice example of the breed. We feel very fortunate in that the litter produced was quite healthy at birth, easily whelped and carried all the hallmarks of the breed (coloration, general structure, double dewclaws, etc.) Rhiannon is structurally superior to her parents, something we were breeding for and glad to welcome into this world.
