Raven has been retired from breeding.

Raven is named for a friend who is First Nations Nisga'a (Raven/Ghanada clan). The Raven would appear in different villages in different guises; animal, human or bird and through his inherent curiosity or sense of mischief, alter the circumstances present in that village. According to Nisga'a legend, it was Raven who brought light to the world.

This Raven sure has a sense of mischief and she has certainly brought light to my world.

Raven is a once in a lifetime dog. She is scary smart and so very willing to please. I point her in the right direction and she tries her very hardest to do what I ask of her. Raven's tail rarely stops wagging as she's working. She is my heart and soul and I thank God for her every single day.

Raven finished her Canadian Championship in 8 shows at the young age of 16 months.
