We were lucky to acquire Finesse at 6 months of age when her breeder's job was transferred, and he couldn't take any dogs with him.  Finesse was everything we wanted.  She had a happy, outgoing temperament.   She was healthy, had no trouble whelping and raising her  one litter, and lived to 12 years.  Finesse even lure coursed, the one time we got to a practice.  Finesse easily completed her Championship with 3 majors, as a 2 year old.
