Jazz was the 3rd born in Tessie's litter, the first black and white bitch and beautifully marked and initially knicknamed "Hearty" due to the love heart shaped blaze on her face. She was always a favourite and destiny played her part in ensuring Jazz came home to us. As you can see from the photo below Jazz is very like her mum, Tessie, who belongs to friends who bought Tessie from us in 2008. Jazz is from the first all Bordertrix litter and her trainability and eagerness to please makes her an awesome training companion. She has Tessie's precise ability with Buddy's enthusiasm - perfect :)

Jazz is very kind, affectionate, confident and outgoing and loves her training. She's also ball mad so we've had a go at flyball and she is very competent and fast.

We have had a go at heelwork to music, where she loves to learn all the tricks. I just wish I had more time to fit everything in and do her justice.

She loves attention and wants to be involved with everything that's going on indoors and out. This girl tries so hard and excels at everything she attempts. She is so easy to train and reminds me a lot of her Grandmother, Sunnie.

Jazz has attended 2 champ shows and was placed in both, the second qualifying her for Crufts 2015.

This photo was taken by Tessie's owner, clicking this link will take you to a link on her website that showcases a photo shoot of puppies from our 4th litter. The photo above is of Jazz with her Dad, Buddy, and Mum, Tessie, a priceless picture to me.

She is the common demoninator in the pack. Skye, Lottie and Boo all play with her but not with each other. Poor Jazz looks quite overwhelmed at times with all 3 of them trying to play flght with her. She also appears to be the protector of the pack and will investigate any bad behaviour approaching.

In 2016 Jazz gained many high places at agility compeitions and continues to just miss out on that elusive grade 3 win. In 2017 this continues as she gains a 2nd place, just 300th second behind the winner! We'll get there Jazz!
