Zoe is my pick puppy from the much anticipated cross of our gorgeous Malcolm and the lovely Foxx, owned by Angelica DeMont of Sixx Aussies.  It’s always exciting when you can bring together two multiple champions who have excelled not only in conformation (both are nationally ranked Top 10 dogs), but have shown the necessary breed type, intelligence, and versatility to excel in performance and herding as well.  Zoe also brings a pedigree to Marabil that includes two of my favorite Aussies girls of all time as her great-grandmothers – my beloved Rumor on the top side and the amazing MBIS MBISS AKC/ASCA Ch. Agua Dulce Popcorn Popper on the bottom side.  Poppers was one of the top winning Australian Shepherds in AKC history and has long been part of my ideal picture of what an Aussie should be.  To have Rumor and Poppers in one pedigree is a dream come true.

Zoe is the culmination of several dedicated breeders bringing their “heart dogs” into their breeding programs.  For me, it’s Rumor and her daughter Cinder, who is Malcolm’s mother. For Angelica, it’s Foxx and her mother Roxy, and for my mentor, the late Cathy Davis of Melody Aussies, it’s Rumor’s mother Terra Jean, who she loved more than words, along with Terra’s mother, Whoopie.  I wanted to honor those special dogs in Zoe’s name, Marabil’s Sixx of Hearts,

Zoe is co-owned with my dear friend, Karen Fava here in California.  We are excited to bring Zoe to the West Coast and can’t wait for her future with Karen in obedience and with me in Conformation. Thank you again to Angelica for letting this piece of her heart come to California.  Zoe has big shoes to fill, but I think she’s up to the task!
