What are his/her unique personality characteristics?

Personality is wild. He is independent. He is spirited. He is friendly. He is just out there to seek fun. I cannot explain. I’ve never seen him not wagging his tail, even after a 300 or 400-mile training run. He’s just that spirited guy. He’s naughty as hell, too, but you’ve got to keep your eye on him. But he’s just very spirited.

What is that litter’s “theme” name?…and other siblings’ names from that litter?

Aero’s litter was named after … I don’t know. It was an extraordinary planned breeding. Mitch took two pups. He took a boy and a girl, and he took Aero and his sister Angel. How the names come to be, I don’t know.

What is the bloodline?

His bloodline is father, Pilot, which is a golden harness winner in which one broke the record in 2017, and his mother, her name is Athena.
