Granite matured into a steady worker and his intelligence, obvious since his puppyhood, earned him a spot in lead. He is very obedient and willing to please. Granite is my little "adict" and big "mama´s boy". He doesn´t perform super just for anyone. They say siberinas are not one-owner dogs. Well, Granite certainly proves it´s not true.
From his daddy he inherrited the super friendly, easy to handle and kind attitude, which also his mom had. An overall pleasant dog and sweetheart.
Granite does also well in the show ring and is one of the rare dogs who just loves to show himself. He certainly follows in his dady´s big foot steps well!
A definite favourite since his first days, Granite is the pick of the litter puppy from our "G" litter. He is adorable and charming sweetheart, who looks just like a teddy-bear.
Granite is quite independed, focussed and patient puppy -- give him an interesting toy and he´ll play with it all day long. He also loves to have his siblings try to steel it from him, with provoking them to chase him. Very self-aware, handsome young man! :)

Roter Stern Kolonie Königsborn NAGLU (great grand sire) - influential dog of the R.S.K.K. kennel and one of Gerd Sandweg´s trusted race leaders for many years. Successful finisher of Pirena, Scandream, Gold Nugget and several other distance races.
