GCH RockHaven's Wilderness of Tekoa, CGC, RN, BN
Tekoa is out of out 2017 GCH Silvia & CH Alvaro dei Dauni litter. She and her sister Kezia stole the show here at RockHaven, and my hope is they will contribute to the program in meaningful ways for years to come! Their temperaments are lovely & engaging while also being excellent judges of character & protectors! Tekoa reminds me SO much of grandmother Mona Lisa (only not as "alpha" as she was!) with her presence and magnatism. She moves true and has one of the prettiest fronts, and lovely expression. She has done well in shows all over the USA. One of her best features is how true and balanced she is. But the best thing about these girls is the brains between their ears! Tekoa is a love bug and good watch dog with a huge bark. Her sister Kezia is every bit as lovey, but a harder more old school stubborn girl-- too smart for her own good!
Size: Growing, but about 26" and 105 lb at 21mo old

GCH RockHaven's Cease & Desist,
CGCA, RN, BN, HIT, CA, RATI
"Ceaster" is one of my favorite females!! She has Solomon's willingness to work with Anora's happy attitude. Literally NOTHING phases this girl. She is unflappable & fearless-- takes it all in stride, and is "real" as real gets. She loves to WORK, but it comes from a place of joy, rather than some dogs that develop that bite-work side from a nasty side of themselves. She is appropriately protective. She LOVES to be a show dog too! From day 1 she has had a great topline and balance. She floats around the show ring with an attitude that just doesn't quit! There is nothing this girl cannot do!

GCH RockHaven's She Will be Loved
"Roonie" is a really awesome girl! Despite having produced a fantastic, sound, large, & healthy litter, she is now retired from breeding and is currently focused on guarding the farm and being loved! She is a very judicious guard dog, but also sweet and goofy! She thinks she is very human-- loves to lay on the sofa and go for walks at the Park. She is very intuitive, and will stay glued to anyone who isn't feeling well on a given day. Also known as Roo-bounce, Rooney Tunes, and Mac-a-Roonie!

GCH RockHaven's Silvia, CGC
Silvia is co-owned by Laura Barton and Gioia Iezza. Most of the time she lives in San Francisco and enjoys hiking the redwood forests daily. She is friendly when asked and otherwise aloof to strangers. She has a very calm and serene nature. She is very easy around the house, and perfectly content to go outside and be a "dog" exploring and guarding the yard. In a single litter, she has contributed (3) wonderful dogs for the RockHaven future! (Kezia, Tekoa, and Bane)

Anora Corso Imperium
Anora is no longer in our breeding program, but contributed her excellent pedigree to the RockHaven line. She is from Corso Imperium in Serbia and is a direct Bayron granddaughter. She doesn't look much like her siblings or parents; she is a throwback to Conan on the bottom 1/2 of her pedigree. Her structure is nice and balanced, even if she isn't a large female. She is OFA "Good" hips and "Clear" Elbows. She is a sweet girl, and gets along wonderfully with other dogs and small animals and kids. She really doesn't portray the strong stubborn corso temperament, and is quite the "easy keeper". She LOVES a little den area and will be your best friend forever if you throw the Jolly Ball for her! She also loves to run and play outside with the other dogs! She is an EXCELLENT Momma, and is always so careful of the puppies. She even helped feed Mona's babies in 2015! (She is both Ceaster's & Manny's mother.)

Mad River's Mona Lisa di RockHaven
Mona retired after (3) litters, and was a huge part of RockHaven's foundation. Mona was our worker of bunch and prided herself on being very smart, serious, and fabulous. She loved to track and hold on to the bite pillow since a young girl. We put a tracking foundation on her at 5 months of age, and years later would still track an intruding varmint in the yard. She was stable and yet aloof to strangers---wouldn't give them the time of day, but a total love-bug to close friends. A true cane corso. She had the best prey drive, determination, and unmatched loyalty. She had very fluid movement, nice angulation and a beautiful head.
Mona had and produced puppies with very nice bone, and brought a nice height and length of body to the next generation. She always taught the puppies great survival skills... even the pups in the house that were not hers, she viewed them as her own.
