Let me tell you about Witch. First of all, I will say that this was a tough litter to "choose" from. It was an extremely nice litter and although I knew we wanted to keep a girl, WHICH girl was entirely a different matter. Each one had her own personality and each had things that would make them a very nice addition to any kennel. I graded the puppies out at 8 weeks old and there were two that graded out highest- Witch and Ghost.
We also did several "nose" tests to see what kind of nose the puppies had early on and which ones were more prone to "use" their nose- of the girls, there were two that showed exceptional nose- Witch and Punkin.
In personality, there were three girls that would go investigate every place you put them and that were never laying down resting but always trying to see what disaster they could cause~ that was Ghost, Witch and the little female who was originally called "Witch" and became known as "Little Witch".
Finally, there was that ONE puppy that would just follow Rob to the shed as he was preparing coonhides for the sell and would pop up on her back legs, grab hold of the hanging fur with her front and just tree her little heart out. Big loud mouth-- already extremely tree minded-- again, that was Witch.
In the end she made SURE we understood that she was the pup for us. We are very very pleased with her and believe she will be a dual purpose dog that will do great things.
