MBIF Dual Ch Windrock Born To Run SC Fch "Danica"
MBIF DC Sobers Ippolito SC Fch x multiple group placing Windrock Miss Lathna
OFA eyes, heart, DNA profiled and neuropathy clear
Meet our lovely mother to be, Danica! She is a brillant tiger red brindle with an impressive portfolio of accomplishments. She is a AKC Dual Champion with multiple Best In Field wins and is one of only five greyhounds in over 40 years to win Best In Field at the Grand National. She has earned her AKC bench (show) championship and both her AKC and ASFA field titles. Danica is also a "reading" dog for youngsters with learning/reading difficulties. She is one of our favorite greyhounds for school and 4H demonstrations. A kind and gentle soul, she is fascinated by baby puppies and we have no doubt she will be an excellent mother as her mother "Fey" adopted and raised puppies when the birth mother could not. Danica has a kind and loving sweet character and has always been a perfect lady in the house.
Danica's mother, Windrock Miss Lathna Fey SC, (Fey), was one of our best producers and she gave us two litters of lovely puppies. Some enjoyed show and performance careers and excelled in those endeavors, but most went to companion homes and a few are serving as emotional support and therapy dogs.
Danica has been health tested for eyes and heart, the results are available on the Orthopedic Foundation For Animals (OFA) webpage. Click here for Danica's results.
We have selected the impressive young " Strider" (MBIF FC Windrock Hot Roddicus Super-Sonicus SC Fch to sire Danica's litter. Read about him below. Click here for link to pedigree.
We expect Danica to come into season very soon, she is due in February, which IF she follows as expected, and if all goes well, we will be expecting puppies in April! Reservations are now being accepted on her litter. Call Kim at 970 270 1300. Email inquiries are acceptable for initial contact at firstname.lastname@example.org

This beautiful red lady is a multiple Best In Show and multiple Hound Show winner.

2019 promises to be exciting!
We had a banner year in 2018 with three litters and still had to turn people away. We are planning for two litters in 2019 out of two very accomplished females.
We have outstanding Dual Champion bitches which have more than proven themselves in the show ring and on the field. Finding worthy sires is always a challenge in this breed, but we are fortunate to have semen frozen from some of the all time great sires.
We are Breeders of Merit with the AKC and have bred over 100 AKC Champions in our 40 plus years involvement with purebred dogs. While we are known for the excellence of our greyhounds in the showring and on the field, we prefer to place our puppies in companion homes. We health screen our breeding stock and offer a 7 year health guarantee against genetic defects. We offer lifetime mentoring and will always take back a dog we have bred. We have been breeding greyhounds for many years and we are proud to present to you the results of our dedication and passion
We are looking forward to 2019 Puppies !!!
~ To visitors coming with their children and marveling at the interaction of little humans and little puppies is something that has to be seen to be appreciated.
As we don't often have puppies, these innocent little lives are a muchwelcomed addition to our household.
Here is something that is not commonly seen! Wicked (the red brindle) on the right has just whelped a new litter of nine. Amber, a Mom of 8 three week old puppies thinks she needs some help. So she has climbed right in and is nursing some of Wicked puppies! What a testimony to the great dispositions of these two Mommies. For the record, Grandma Whisper goes in and helps with keeping the tykes spotless. Now you know the secret to our Greyhounds fantastic temperaments. Look what kind of upbringing they had as kids by their loving peers!
Close up photo of Wicked's newly born kids. Yes, I know Greyhound puppies aren't nearly as cute as say, English Springer Spaniel puppies, but you better not say that around these two proud Mamas. If you do say something about their kids being ugly, you better be able to outrun them! Greyhounds are ugly duckings puppies that mature into the most beautiful and graceful of canines.
One day old Greyhound whelps. You know, the little one in the foreground reminds me of dear husband Colin. He sleeps with his mouth open too!
CJ had a LONG night! She delivered a beautiful whelping of 6 girls and 4 boys in a rainbow of colors. We have black brindles, red brindles, blue brindle, blue, and blue fawn.

Both sire and dam OFA, CERF, Neuropathy clear
CJ is a beautiful blue brindle girl who has performed equally well in the show ring as well as on the coursing field. She has a sweet, kind personality that has made her the perfect companion in our home and a confident and radiant show dog that finished her AKC bench champion and Grand Champion titles with impressive wins. She is one of only a handful of Grand Champion winning Dual Champions in AKC history! With extremely limited outs as a special, she is group placing and won BOB on the highly competitive GCA National weekend. She has enjoyed an illustrious coursing career, winning two field Championships, both ASFA and AKC field titles in addition to multiple BIF wins. Her accolades include BOB wins at the ASFA II, The GCA National Lure Trial and The Grand National.These lofty achievements haven't come easy, she has had to work hard to win running against the other noteworthy coursers from all around the country! CJ has been remarkably healthy and never took an unsound step coming off of the field. She is an own daughter of one of our best, the late great MBIF DC Windrock Mamma Mia LCX Fch,
Her pedigree has previously produced some exceptionally healthy and long lived hounds. CJ's Aunt "Whisper" DC Windrock I've Got A Secret went big game hunting with us this last year and she is in her 14th year! We attribute her long life to good genes and proper management.
CJ is currently ungoing health screening and is neuropathy free. She will be re-Cerfed and OFA Cardiac (Doppler) and OFA thyroid.
We expect strong and vigorous puppies in a rainbow of colors and much the same look and personality found in CJ's 3/4 sister Doobie's "Talk" litter. The success of that mating is what prompted us to look again to the out-crossed bloodlines of our long deceased top producer, Ch Martigra's Cupid's Beau. We are so thankful that we had the vision to collect this remarkable sire and thus have the opportunity to incorporate this all but lost bloodline today!
CJ on her way to winning BOB over some of the nation's best on the Greyhound Club of America National Specialty weekend! She is solidly built and has wonderful lines and is absolutely truth in her movements. Note proper footfall, no GSD over reaching here!
Photo below is a classic example of CJ in action. A clean, honest courser with unbridled enthusiasm and passion. In addition to many nice accolades including multiple BIF wins, CJ was BOB at the ASFA II! We can count on her to give her best each and every time!
Top producing Ch Martigra's Cupid's Beau has been selected to sire "CJ's" litter. We expect puppies much of the same look, type and ability as BIF GCH DC Windrock Wild Wood Weed SC Fch's "Talk" Litter.

OFA hips/CERF/Neuropathy Free
Beau was the sire of 25 Champion get, including SBIS and Group winners. Most of his offspring were owner-handled to their wins. He also sired some excellent coursing and versatility greyhounds.
Beau came to live at WINDROCK for a while, and I remember often stopping my work just to admire him standing there out in one of our grass paddocks. His conformation and elegant lines made him a magnificent sight and he had the well defined muscling and proper Greyhound shape, especially strong in the underline. He was a moderately sized greyhound of great virtue and we are thankful to have had him in our lives --and hearts.
Beau has been gone many years and through the miracle of frozen semen we have the opportunity to incorporate this long gone bloodline into our WINDROCK broods and the results have been spectacular! We expect "CJ's" litter to be outstanding in type, temperament, ability and come in a rainbow of colors.
It is a zoo at our house. Good thing we have a HUGE master bedroom. Needless to say we needed a KING sized bed to accommodate our old veterans, Whisper and Cassie. Today however, it is serving a different, very special purpose. Amber wants to have her puppies here!
Amber has just brought into a brave new world a beautiful blue/fawn brindle girl. Old Whisper the quintessential Mother, is adjacent to her giving advice. I am watching, marveling at Amber, new baby and Whisper. Amber is so accepting of Whisper and her new baby. Life is good. Stay tuned for updates. Amber is just getting started**Flash**final tally now in, Amber has free whelped a fine litter of 8! 7 girls and 1 male. I like what I see, long necks, long bodies and tails. Strong vigorous puppies with good heft and bone in a rainbow of colors. Which one is for me? I can only wonder.
