Flare is a moderate red tri bitch.  She has a very stunning red color with vivid copper points.  Flare has
tremendous drive and is a joy to train.

Early in her life, Flare was diagnosed with a condition called bilateral osteochondritis (OCD).  This is a genetic
condition in her shoulders and prohibits Flare from engaging in many of the fun activities that she wants to
enjoy.  Because too much exertion causes her pain and discomfort, Flare enjoys a life of ease as NorAust's queen
of the house.  


At 14+ years old, Flare is still going strong.  She loves walking her 10 acre property, laying in the shade of the
oak tree and doing a few tricks for visitors.  She is still the top dog in the house. She has had two vestibular
attacks recently and has recovered.  Her mind is still as strong as ever.  We enjoy every day we can with her.
