Tulsa's Pedigree

Tulsa's Tip daughter - Prima

Terra Norté's Prime Time Diva BN RN JHD "Prima", Sable

What a pretty sable girl - feminine but solid! Lots of bone, coat and drama.... Prima's dad is our own Terra Norte's Tipetarius "Tip". This brown girl has a working mind behind those good looks. She and Bailey Bremner captured a Rally Novice title at 14 months with high scores and placements. Bailey and Prima have now added herding to their accomplishments earning a Jr Herding Dog title and their first qualifying AKC PT leg this summer.


Tulsa's Khanye daughter - Nevada

CH Terra Norte's Night Time in Nevada "Nevada", Sable

Oh my gosh - what a pretty girl! I see so much of Tina's presence in this bitch. Even at this young age - she is a movie star and knows it!

Her father is AOE, GCH, 2x YS Sel CH 2010 Canadian National Winners Dog Trafalgar's Feature Presentation "Khanye"

Nevada goes Mid-Pacific Region's Best in Amatuer Futurity!

Nevada takes her leading lady role to the hilt and conquers admirers everywhere she goes. Finishing at 13 months with 3 majors.

Tulsa's Khanye Daughter - Clare

Terra Norte's The Time Traveler's Wife "Clare", Sable

This is the 2nd sable girl from the Khanye litter. Not as plush as Nevada - but a great mover.

Look at that great extensive - lovely reach and suspension!


Tulsa's Khanye Daughter - LuLu

Terra Norte's Second Time Around, "LuLu"

This is the "Not-Brown" sister to Nevada, Clare and McKenna. While Black & Tan instead of Sable - there isn't anything Plain Jane about LuLu. She has great length of stride, presence and sensiblity! Watch for LuLu in St Louis representing the Mid-Pacific region in the Amatuer Futurtiy competition.  

Tango's Vaquaro daughter - Samba

Terra Norté's Samba with a Latin Beat, "Samba"

This high energy bi-colour takes her name seriously. Beautiful dark pigment, long stride and iron back makes for the suspended side gait that defines the GSD. Samba's precocious temperament is contagious.

Samba Pedigree

Sorcha's Patriot daughter - Devlin


Terra Norte Homar's Mother Jones, "Devlin"

When looking at Devlin's pedigree you see that she has big shoes to fill. As a Sorcha daughter, she has several GV's and Selects contributing to her genetic makeup. Add to that Sel Ex CH Patriot's blueblood contribution as a CH Heart Throb son out of a GV R-Man daughter - Devlin carries with her the best of the American GSD show lines. On top of that - she has a lovely temperament.

Devlin's Pedigree




Sorcha's Cowboy Song daughter - Glinda

Glinda Aug 09


Terra Norte's Glinda v Homar, "Glinda"

Born in the middle of a tornado and with a mother who was named after a famous Irish Witch, it seemed fitting that the pups from this litter be named after the famous Witches and Wizards of Oz. This girl, while her name sake was supposed to be "The Good Witch", is far from little miss goodie two shoes. She has the same great joie de vivre that Sorcha is known for and beautiful to boot. Her father, CH Marhaven's Last Cowboy Song, PT - a GV Army son, brings in some line breeding on Boss as well as the beautiful movement trademarked by the Kenlyn "Q" girls.

Glinda's Pedigree

Glinda's Colin daughter - GCH Torre

GCH Terra Norte's Pastoria of Oz, PT "Torre", black & tan

At the 2012 National Helen Gleason remarked that Torre - "An aloof, alert gal of medium size, medium bone and sumstance Excellent pigment, very tight coat. Strong head with medium colored eyes. Straight front, stands correctly in the rear. Sound coming and going, elbows tight, very good rear ligamentation. Very good reach and drive. Strong, straight back, croup is somewhat short, correct tail.

Torre has proven herself to have great depth both in looks and intelligence. She earned her Pre-trial herding title easily and now that she has snatched up her Grand Championship is starting on obedience work.

Torre Pedigree

The California Girls -

CH Rivendell All The Right Moves v Animus, HSAs HRDI HTADI PT
"DiDi", black & tan

Didi brings a strong west coast pedigree to RTN being a Select CH Sunny Side Up daughter by Sel Ex CH Jezra's Daytona (An Elmo son out of a Boss/Color Guard daughter). She has a dare-devil attitude and loves hanging off the edge. When it comes to herding - however, she is all business. Of course, it is also with all the power and grace of a Ferrari making
"All The Right Moves"!



2011 Am BIF GCH Marhaven's Evangelina of Terra Norte' "Lena"

Lena lives up to the old song -she is worth crossing the desert for.... When Bob Kish picked her as Best in Amateur Futurity at the 2011 National - he wrote " feminine, well balanced, strongly pigmented, and eye appealing with a solid top line"

Lena continues to show that she is GSD royalty! Finishing easily and taking command of the specials ring. She captured the Best of Breed award her first time as a special and has continued to conquer hearts her second weekend out - going BOB 3 out of the 4 days and receiving a Group placement.

WOW!! Lena now has acheived her Grand Championship and isn't losing any momentum. Thank you Jon Cole for finishing her Grand and bestowing a Group 2 on Lena! Now ranked in the Top 20 GSD and is the #2 GSD bitch in the AKC National Owner Handler Series for 2014.
