    I have a Shaq-Ruby pup, Roxxie. She has been the smartest, easiest to train and compliant dog I've owned and has A LOT of drive. She had 13 derby points in 8 derbies and will run Qual's this spring.

    I watched Shaq several times when we were in Montana. He's a good looking dog who marks well and is a team player. I had to have a pup and when I saw Helen's breeding jumped at it. Glad I did!

    Any truth to the rumor that Shaq puppies are slow to mature?

    I haven't seen this to be the case.

    I want another some day I love mine. If anyone know of any good breeding out of him please let me know. Good looks and level headed pups is what I have seen.

    I don't think he's been bred enough to make any assumptions like that. He seems to me a good match for a high bitch though. He's been bred to some very nice females and has thrown some nice puppies. My male is a little slow to mature but could be an anomaly, as one of his litters had a pup qualify for the national as a 2yo and another pup in the litter was definitely not slow to mature as he had an am 2nd as a 3yo I believe.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    As in most things, whether pups are thought to be slow to mature or not is up to the person's experience with pups and what they believe maturity to be. In a litter of pups, you are going to find some slower to mature than others. Some folks think males are slower to mature than females.

    We bred to Shaq and got 12 very talented puppies. Most did not run a lot of Derbies. Two made the Derby list, 2 had 9 pts., 1 had 8 pts., 1 had 6 pts. and it went down from there. The first to win a Qualifying and become QAA did so at just a little over 2 years of age. That was a female pup who ran only a few Derbies and got only 3 Derby pts. And then she wins a big Qual right out of Derby. Go figure.

    That was how our Shaq female did. Ran 2 derby's I think, mostly because of a poorly timed heat cycle at 22.5 months old! So she missed the best time to run them. She got a RJ in a large Qual at 24 months old in her first one and her next Qual she won on her 25 month birthday (50 dogs too).
