Ayia, lives up to her name, which in Hebrew means bird. When she runs after the ball, she flies with such grace and speed your heart leaps with joy at the sight! It also could be of Japanese origin meaning "Pure hearted"; when you consider her bloodline, her heart is of the working dog, and the lines are pure. Aiya was born October 16, 2017, and a superior, all working line, sable female. We looked everywhere for just the right working lines to bring to our kennel. We wanted the drive, but we also needed the balance allowing for the ability to relax and enjoy family life too. Aiya is exactly what we wanted; she loves to play with the children but is never dominant, she can be out with all the dogs and knows how to get along with everyone. Aiya has an intuitive understanding of her place, position, and job, no matter what that may be.
