Risa Enjoying the First Snow FallRisa

Risa is the grand dam of this household. She is the alpha and protects the pack. If Risa shows signs that something is off about you, it's a clear sign to us that puppies from us are not in the cards for you. She is intuitive and really senses who you are. Treasure would love to usurp her from this role but clearly Treasure is too immature and has a lot to learn before Risa relinquishes her place to anyone.

Risa is a protector, a teacher and a true love. She's no longer having pups but we still have amazing stories about her last crew and the matter of fact, no nonsense mothering, with tenderness, that she displayed. We were blessed to be a part of her mother role.
