Novaforesta Diamond Black

Yet another photo but I have been lucky enough to have had the pleasure of this dog staying with me for several weeks. She came to the shoot twice and the photo above is the result. She is about 57 in height and weighs 22kg, when you see the size of the bird it does make you realise what strengths a working dog needs in the UK. She is also trained to find truffles, which in this country means she has to sit or lie down and indicate where a truffle may be, certainly not retrieve it. Interesting to me as working on a shoot is a totally different job and yet she just seemed to know what to do. She has also achieved her TAN in the UK with ease, and also achieved her silver Kennel Club Good Citizens award. She has a lovely curly coat, very black and quite harsh in texture.
