Stella DOB May 2008
Stella is really the complete package as far as size, movement, angulation and show quality go. She earned NZKC Champion certificate at a very young age and went from stength to strength in the show ring. Being 3rd in the pack she sometimes feels overlooked so will bring you a little treasure picked up off the ground or garden for attention. Stellas hip scores proved yet again that she is very sound .She won BEST IN SHOW , Best Bitch and Best Champion at the Leonberger Club Inaugural Championship Show 9th October 2011. The judge for the day was Guido Perosino who is considered one of the best Leo Specialist judges in the world. Stella retired from the show ring at age 5 and spends her retirement years just hanging with her mates on the farm.
Shiraz DOB 17/05/2013
This girl is from our first litter. She wasn't exactly the 'pick' of the litter but she won my heart so we decided against all opinion or advice to keep her as well as the pick. Double the trouble they say. They were right! She was always the biggest pup and seems to carry on the trend being taller than most of the others in the pack. 'Rangy" is how one would best describe her now, but we hope in another 12 months she will have filled out a bit more and developed a lusher coat than the one she sports at the moment. Well that's our hope anyway. She hasn't seen the inside of a show ring too often and that's entirely my fault but her temperament is fantastic. Mellow - would be a good description. Time could change all that too so keep checking in.
Syrah DOB 17/05/2013
Number two pup, also from our first litter. This little sweetheart was the pick of the bunch so obviously she had to stay. Mischievous to the nth degree is Syrah! She's inclined to be up beside you really close and trots happily alongside ankle tapping or gumboot tapping to be exact. Comic! Beautiful facial expression and thick coat with a friendly disposition.
Everyone is considered her best friend!
Finally, just before her 2nd birthday, this little minx has done the hard yards and can now boast NZKC Champion status. She is gorgeous and we are very proud to have our kennel represented with her.
