BACKGROUND

Zelda is my "Pick of the Litter" female offspring from my "Z" litter who I kept for future breeding, specifically as her sire (Zente) was a brand-new outcross (White Swiss Shepherd) for the Tamaskan breed. As soon as she was born, it was "love at first sight" but, as she developed, it was clear that I had made the right choice to keep her for future breeding instead of selling her.

Zelda exhibits all of the traits I hope to see in a breeding dog, with the addition of fresh outcross White Swiss Shepherd (WSS) genes. She looks very similar to her mother, Zora, and she has a very similar character/temperament. When Zelda turned 1 year old, I financed all of the required health testing (hip/elbow x-rays + BVA evaluation, eye exam, as well as all the necessary DNA testing) for her to qualify as an official breeding dog and thankfully she got excellent results.

Zelda lives with us at Sylvaen Acres, our family estate/homestead, and she is our much-loved personal companion and family pet. In spring 2019, Zelda had her first litter, which was sired by our co-owned stud dog Ash (Sylvaen Rise From The Ashes): "Legend Of Zelda" litter. In spring 2020, Zelda had her second litter, which was sired by Obi-Wan (Sylvaen Elessar) in Slovenia: "Star Wars Planets" litter. In winter 2022, Zelda had her third litter, which was sired by Asgard Jr (Sylvaen Asgard) in Slovenia: "Croatian Seasons" litter. In spring 2024, Zelda had her fourth (final) litter, which was sired by our outcross stud dog Snow (Inyabu Gaspar): "Powerpuff Girls" litter.

TEMPERAMENT

Zelda is a goofy and playful girl, just like her mother, Zora! She is very affectionate and she gets along well with all other dogs and puppies. Zelda is very easy-to-train as she listens well and she is really eager to please, thanks to her recent WSS ancestry. She is great off-leash with excellent recall.
