Born January 12, 2014 from Mustain's A-Litter
Asia is from our A litter between Ani our “perfect dog” and Castiron’s Flying Jet and she is very much like her mother and reminds us of Ani everyday. But Asia is not the princess her mother was – she’s a rough and tumble tomboy who is probably the goofball of the bunch. She is very vocal like a Husky and is also a tattle-tail. She will come running up to us and whine and "talk" to us until we follow her and then it’s usually to find one of the younger dogs into something they shouldn’t be, and she’ll sit as I scold the bad dog and almost nod her head, as if to say “I told you so.”
Asia is a true athlete and is always very anxious to learn tricks and perform, and also loves to do agility work so we’ve been taking her to agility classes and she just excels - she loves to learn new moves and compete. When she was getting evaluatted for breeding her judges remarked about how "muscled" she was. She’s also very friendly as all our dogs are and loves attention from people when we’re out – she will nose her way to the front of the pack so she can get petted first and tries to hog all the attention!
But in the field and water she becomes a relentless hunter like her mother, and she’s also inherited her mother’s gift of “air tracking” – Asia doesn’t track with her nose to the ground, rather she lifts her nose in the air and smells, and then runs towards the prey. Asia easily scored a perfect 112, Prize I on her NAVHDA Natural Abilty Test and is an amazing companion and hunter.
Asia had her hips tested by the PennHip method when she was 18 months old and her results were .2 on her left side and .16 on her right which means her hips are tighter than over 90% of all dogs in this group in the US. She is also the second lowest scoring Small Munsterlander in the SMCNA which means her chances of getting any type of hip dysplasia or osteo arthrisis when she gets older are almost zero percent. This also means pups she will produce are more likely to be free from any hip dysplasia or hip disease as well.
Our A-Litter won a Breeder's Award from the SMCNA.
