Umbra Lykos Nyx

A shade, a spirit or ghost of a dead person, residing in the Underworld.
Latin for the innermost and darkest part of a shadow.

Goddess of Night, the very substance of night - a veil of dark mists drawn across the sky to obscure the shining blue of the heavens.

We wanted to keep a female from our 2nd litter, but choosing from 5 wonderful females was very difficult. Which is why we really looked at build, movement, looks and genetics, but most of all if her character would fit the pack. Umbra got her name because of her very dark colouring, just like Uskuru - a variant on obscurus. A striking fact is that years ago I said to a fellow breeder, Umbra is my name. And she is the one that stayed in the end.

Umbra is quite open towards people, but to other dogs and in strange situations she can be wary and sometimes crawls under objects or freezes. So breedtypically reserved now and then. She is actually a very sweet girl and good puppy (for now) and has found her place in the pack. Uncle Kerbe is her favourite playmate, but mom Daya and dad Styx play with her daily too - or correct her naughty behaviour. She loves to cuddle and bumps her nose at you to show affection. If she gets mad or insecure, she puts up the dorsal crest (hair ridge) on her back and curls her hindquarters, which makes her look like a tiny hyena. We are very curious to see how she turns out, but for now adore the joy she is
