DVORA – in the pedigree she is called Faiza Star of Work – was born in August 2009 in Switzerland to the breeder Marlise Germanier. Dvora, meaning “bee,” is called as such due to her honey-like coloring - crème colored with white. She is Alisha’s granddaughter and Batya’s niece – Batya, who unfortunately wasn’t ready to have puppies with the beautiful Pauli.
Janus, from Mr. and Mrs. Taube, is her father. He is the brother of Batya, Bathseba and Bilha. in the family tree Baschan Ben Noach. Therefore Dvora belongs to that family, although in a more distant relation, than if she were Batya’s daughter, who is already too old to whelp. It was a wonderful chance for me to adopt Dvora into our pack. Her mother comes from Marlise Germanier’s kennel, with further ancestors coming from England, Israel Italy.
Marlise Germanier exposes her whelps to a very social environment, which is why Dvora is very confident and entirely lacking in shyness. Especially on our walks she is interested in any and every one and thing. Nira Sorenson-Rosenberg, and Israeli dog trainer and our friend, is helping me train Dvora.
Dvora is a very spirited dog, which sometimes annoys Alisha and Batya. Alisha defends her vigorously and devotedly, raising her very strictly. Because of this, Dvora has more respect for her than for the somewhat younger Batya, who sometimes plays with her and only bares her teeth against her when she isn’t in the mood.
