Call of the Wild had a broken leg as a puppy and was never shown. Wild Life gained a few points but did not have a show personality. Except for one timid male, all had good temperaments. Wild Life is OFA okay but On The Wild Side is mildly dysplastic. Coats and markings were quite good. Heads were reasonable. Movement is good. Wild Life had a very low sperm count and was unable to produce pups. Wild Side had two litters.
