Vinnie was an un-expected arrival, but seeing him when choosing Maisey, there was just no way we were leaving him behind! He instantly caught my eye with huge amounts of potential. And he hasn't let us down, Vinnie is maturing into a really powerful boy with the most stunning head, plently of bone, superb angles and a strong well difined rear. He has the sweetest disposition and thoroughly enjoys being the centre of attention.
Making his show debut at Midland Counties, under US Judge 'Judy Harrington' Vinnie qualified for Crufts 2011 with a 2nd in Minor Puppy Dog. Vinnie was then called back into the Challenge to be considered for the RCC, we couldn't be more proud! We hope to campaign Vinnie more in 2011, alongside his sister 'Maisey'.
Vinnie's Dam 'Honey' comes from a background of dogs I have always admired, some of my all time favourites are behind this super typy boy. Honey's sire is the awesome 'Anshee The Stonemason' (Denzyl) who excelled in breed type. Denzyl himself was sired by another of my favourite dogs 'CR Regalias Boulderdash to Anshee' who is also the sire to our Old Boy 'Remi' and is without a doubt where the beautiful bear type heads come from! There is also my personal all time favourites Ch Anshee Fur Ever, who holds a special place in my heart, and Ch. Anshee Keep The Faith.
Vinnie's Daddy is the awesome 'Am. Ch. Dembe's Last Dragon' (Draco) who came to the Redwitch Kennels UK, from Dembe Akitas in the US. Already holding his American title on arrival, he scooped his UK title in three straight shows all with BOB. Draco himself is sired by an outstanding Akita, who certainly made his presence felt in the breed, 'Ch. Redwitch Feel Free to Stare' (JC), the UK's top producing sire of all time within our breed.
