Callixus Gemini of Hartenziel
Nyx is Rookie's daughter from his first litter with Bea. She is Drake's litter sister. This girl is just full of character, so funny and loving. Nyx was different to my boys growing up and strangely took a longer time to mature. As a pup she could be a little sensitive at times, but is extremely outgoing, bold, optimistic and confident as an adult. She has a beautiful, friendly and sweet temperament with people and other dogs, but is really more interested in hunting and running than paying attention anyone else when out and about! She loves having dogs come to stay with us; everyone is a playmate to her.
She has drive and work ethic by the bucketload and has been different to train in comparison to the boys as well, but I adore her goofy, happy character. She loves her home comforts; of an evening she likes nothing more than planting herself on my lap on the sofa, and if I'm not careful she will try to worm her way under the covers in bed at night too. Nyx was run on to be bred from, but for a couple of reasons, one being she was not quite what we wanted for our breeding plans, she stayed here and is enjoying a life without the responsibilities of parenthood..... and being an excellent Auntie.
Nyx has taken a back seat to her brother in showing (click here for Nyx's show results) and working. She has taken longer to come together than my others, but I am so happy with the dog she has become.
The Large Münsterländer is tested for a few health conditions, especially if being bred from. These include hip and elbow scoring, HUU (hyperuricosuria) testing and annual eye tests for hereditary caratacts.
