Costa is our keeper from our Ocean and Henna litter. As the daughter of Henna and granddaughter of Minx, Costa is the fourth generation of MAS that we have had the pleasure of living with.
I was keen to incorporate Ocean's excellent traditional pedigree into our own, with the aim of producing what has since proved to be a litter of balanced, talented, versatile workers. At 46cm Costa has gone over height (she's the tallest bitch in her litter by some margin) but that's the throwback of strong working lines on both sides of the pedigree. 'Quality should never be sacrificed for size' and Costa does not sacrifice one molecule of quality when put to work.

Costa is a bright, happy, intelligent girl who thoroughly enjoys all her training, whatever we ask of her. She is phenomenally powerful and athletic, effortlessly outpacing anyone else in the pack, whilst of an evening she's an affectionate and cuddly soul, perfectly at home with her family.
She has achieved her KCGCDS Gold and now, following introductory sessions which she loved and picked up very quickly, she is about to embark on a Mantrailing career following in the pawprints of her mum Henna and cousin Ace. We look forward to seeing what this young lady can achieve.
