One might think that Poca's pet name was derived from her registered name, however, it was a mere coincidence that the two are matchy-matchy. Poca is short for Pocahontas while the registered name Polkkakarkki (traditional Swedish peppermint-flavoured hard taffy) refers to the sire's registered name which contains the word "polkka" in it. Poca lives with her cousin Bella and we certainly hope that she will be as versatile as Bella when it comes to dog sports - at least Poca appears to have the right attitude and temperament! Poca has had a go at a few disciplines such as obedience and sheep and reindeer herding already, and is training to become a SAR dog one day. She has also been shown in conformation a few times with very nice critiques and placements. In June 2024, Poca passed the sheep herding aptitude test enjoying every minute of it. Thank you Hanneliisa & family!
