Karana Ripper II Born 17 Feb 2007 Sire: Karana Digger II (Milburn Basil x UD Scarlet)
Dam: Karana Sami (Karana Duke x Ref: Karrawarra Mallee).
Ripper is a nice natured dog with natural all round ability, He has very good footwork much like his Sire Karana Digger II but is proving to be a better yard dog than Digger, With Ripper having more presence. Ripper is a long legged long bodied dog with a light frame compared to his full brother Rambo. Ripper covers the ground very easily and smoothly, He is an easy dog to work responding well to direction. He is showing true Utility style work I believe he has a big future; He will not start to show his full potential until he is 2 years old. Watch this space.
As it turned out my predictions about Ripper when he was first starting turned out to be correct.
