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.
Amstel DOB Aug 2009
Amstel started his show career with a Best Baby Puppy in Group win. It all went downhill from there as he is grew into his body. You may not be aware but puppies seem to grow in fits and starts at each end and it takes a while before both front and back seem to belong to each other. So... we waited patiently but a show dog he was not!. Now at 8 years of age his coat is lusciously thick and he stands proudly over his own personal pack of girls at home. Amstel is a Therapy dog with the Canine Friends society and thoroughly enjoys his visits to the old folks home. He has proven his ability in Water Rescue and we will continue with this training. We love him to bits.
