Travis is our pick puppy back from the litter bred by Jill Hopkins at Travistock Akitas. He is Sired by our Champion boy Baelor and out of Jill's Champion Travistock Kiacis (Kylie). We were so pleased with this litter that we really couldn't resist the opportunity of this little man joining our team, and we are so thankful to Jill for letting Travis come back to Whitewreath.
Travis is very much the clone of his Sire and I think that is why we found him so appealing. As with any breeding program the breeder must not wear rose tinted glasses and be aware of the faults in their lines, we looked at this breeding an realised Kylie could bring a lot to the table especially in terms of type.
Travis has the most beautiful head, fabulous bone, rear angles to die for. He has a fabulous coat in a gorgeous red tone. We are very excited to see how he grows and comes on in the following months.
Travis made his show debut at 8 months at the Akita Ass. Championship Show where he won Minor Puppy Dog, following this up with Best Puppy Dog in fabulous company, losing out to his cousin Phoenix for Best Puppy In Show.
