We strive for excellence in our breeding program, that is why we test and classify all dogs in our breeding program. Before our dogs reach breeding, they will be at least 2 years old and have been genetically tested, hip and elbow dysplasia, autoimmune thyroid and Pelger-Huet Anomaly tested.

From the first day, Henry Thoreau has always been a very confident dog, with a cheerful and exploratory personality, very fun and lively. With only a few months to live, he learned to love diving every weekend, visiting a new beach in Rio and with only 6 months had already gone camping for several weeks in Martins de Sá, a deserted beach surrounded by forest on the coast of Rio de Janeiro. This only increased his great sense of exploration and his self-confidence. At less than 1 year old he had already climbed the main mountains of the wonderful city.

With a little more than 1 year he accompanied me living in the countryside for a few months in a row while I developed an environmental recovery project at a farm in the mountainous region of Rio de Janeiro, where he got used to presenting an imposing guard posture, both during the day as well as the night attentive and incisive, removing some unwanted disturbances and accompanying me during the course of the field, following horseback rides without regard to the big and noisy machinery. He has never been tested for his grazing skills, but he has already exhibited the instinctive behavior of moving cattle several times very efficiently even without any training.

Thoreau achieved a great score on his Dysplasia exam, having thyroid exams and an extensive panel of possible genetic diseases with perfect results confirming what we already knew. He is an incredible example of the breed, very healthy and with a perfect structure and temperament.
