DUCHESS

CIRC: 1968 - 1979

Sable faced Tri-Color
Unregistered Purebred ES from Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Family pet and companion with an excellent temperament. She didn't ever meet a stranger. Was always by our side no matter what we were doing.

Note: After we lost Duchess, it took 20 years to find another English Shepherd, due to the lack of accessibility to advertising sources.
