Brava de la Balme D'Epy, CGC

Bred by Mme Dupont-Auvert, Aubais, FRANCE (Both parents French Ring III!) Her pedigree reads like a "Whose Who" for working Beauceron!  Sired by the famous French Beauceron "Seneque" who competed at the highest levels of French Ring - French Ring Championships as well as being a Champion of France - Beauty. 

CGC (Canine Good Citizen), Brava's hips and elbows are prelim'd normal (will be certified after her 2nd birthday) and her eyes are certified with CERF.; Brava is co-owned with Debbie Pluss.  Brava's sister, Bijou has her hips and elbows prelim'd normal too and has her eyes certified with CERF as well.  Brava has excellent working bloodlines and a wonderful temperament with nice structure.  Debbie Pluss is training her for showmanship as well as toward a Schutzhund BH.  Brava won Best of Breed at the October AKC Show at Lake Perris!  To contact Debbie Pluss email

Owner x-rayed hips.  I have not seen results from OFA or France, therefore I chose to remove Brava from my breeding program.  Update received reports July 2010 (below). Co-owner misinterpreted hip results.
