Wynonna - 6 weeks

Wynonna* got her name from being the first and only daughter from our very first own home bred litter of both her mother and father. Although her mother was born in South Africa she was bred in the USA.  Wynonna has a sweet expression and two beautiful blue eyes.  So far captured the hearts of many in the same way as her dad did.  She has the same temperament as her father and is always willing to please and eager to learn.  

Watch for Wynonna in a ring near you!
