Sera is the star here at Laureate and the mother of our

Like her mother before her, she dislikes the indignity of subjecting herself to public scrutiny. Despite this fact, she is titled in 3 countries, a testament to her outstanding type and sound movement.

Her littermates include the top-ten ranked Am/Can/Mex /Int'l/World'99 Ch. Adrienne Blue & Sentimental and Am/Can Ch. Adrienne Blues After Midnight CD. She is co-owned with her breeder, Janis Leikam.

Sera's first litter, sired by her maternal uncle, Can Ch. Adrienne's Freedom Fighter, currently includes three American and two Canadian champions. They are pictured below.
