A legacy past down to Brandy and her family.

In more than 40 years of working with animals she trained German Shepherds in Schutzhund, Blood Hounds and bred Rottweilers and miniature Schnauzers. She showed Paint Horses as well. She also enjoyed playing bingo wearing her lucky pom-pom hat, reading, and spending time with her family.
