In mid October we visited a super litter of puppies raised by Birgit & Cindy Ranson in Essex. Their bitch Xena has an excellent nature correct of the breed - she's very happy and proud of her puppies who have inherited much of her looks and character. She is in excellent condition and both mum and pups are a credit to their breeder Birgi, who has raised them to be secure and confident with their many visitors.

The bitch is going to Bermuda and one or two males will be shown in the UK. This is a repeat of a combination which worked well - pups have plenty of bone and substance, excellent underjaws, short coupled, super strong toplines, clean tailsets and dark, clear markings. Most importantly, open, confident characters. We look forward in anticipation to seeing how they develop. Another fabulous litter to be proud of.

We were very pleased as we think highly of Xena's character and the pups were raised immaculately. Click HERE to see the puppies from that litter. HEALTH - Bracco is VWd Clear, Hips 6:3, Eyes Clear, Thyroid Normal, TGaa Autoimmune Clear, DCM Clear at time of testing - Nov 07. Xena is VWd Clear, PHPV (Eyes) Clear.

The combination concentrates on the strengths of two of the most important UK/European bred bitches of the past few years - the maternal Grandmother is the top quality Lux, UK & Dutch Ch Vonedstram The Vixen(Victor v Roveline x Gaindyke Tamarra at Vonedstram), and the paternal Grandmother is our Dutch Ch, Europa Jugend Siegerin, Bel & Lux W, Aritaur Dominatrix (Ger VDH Ch Ramonburgs Valdo x Crislea Centrefold of Aritaur), who was also last years - Top Brood Bitch in the Working Group 2007.
