RAINDANCER’S ALCHEMIST FOR MARVELMAS

US IMPORT

FIREFLY was bred by RainDancer Miniature American Shepherds in Montana, USA.

Firefly came to us from the USA – it was love at first sight when she was born, and then a long wait until 8 week evaluations! We’re extremely thankful to Rainy for giving us the opportunity to have Firefly and for the endless updates we received before we picked her up.

Firefly has a fantastic structure and a beautiful flowing movement, which she inherited from her dam. She’s happy, keen, willing and oh so smart – we really are very lucky to have her! She has an amazing off switch, and will settle perfectly when out and about, as well as at home.

Firefly adores trick training and obedience best – she was invited to the US Nationals for rally obedience in Ohio in the summer of 2021!

Firefly commands any room with her amazing structure and confidence. She stacks and moves around a conformation ring like shes been doing it for years. She attended her first conformation show in Paris, France in January 2019 at 5 months of age. She was awarded Best Baby Female, Best Baby of Breed and competed in the Ring of Honour for Best Baby in Show.

In 2019 Firefly was selected to take part in the Kennel Club’s Puppy Display Team at Crufts – Firefly adored the experience and strutted her stuff during the displays like a pro!
