Odessa has been having a great time so far with her brother.  She’s gone to the vet and just like Oscar had no issues with shots. She’s been to puppy class and at week one completed up to week 3 exercises to advance into the week 4 class, so it’s clear she’s very smart and capable.  She was timid around the unknown puppies during playtime, but she loves playing with Oscar.  I’m almost certain they could tell quickly they are siblings due to how instantaneously they were comfortable with one another.  We’ve been keen to monitor and discourage any resource guarding on either side, and encourage sticking to their own toys or food or allow sharing when it’s calm and real sharing.  Odessa has already started learning Release at home, which is good.  And she’s rewarded for showing calm quiet behavior.  Once she’s old enough we will teach her how to speak, whisper, and be silent like her brother.”

Odessa is a blue merle female AussieDoodle with tons of rich copper. She will look a lot like her mamma. She will also look like her half brother Ned and half sister Mika (just add copper) and much like Annie too. Her copper is some of the brightest copper we’ve seen.  Congratulations to Ara and Alice in California.
