Pepper, a special girl that we've kept longer to wait for the right owner, and we're happy we did! When she was 19 weeks old, Nicole Nesbit of SkyBlue kennel in Massachusetts (USA) showed interest. This kennel had CH White Rock Yukon Royal China as foundation female and since Pepper's linebred on China, that was a good thing to begin with. Since Nicole also liked Pepper's conformation a lot, we decided that she could take her. This little stunner flew back to her roots (literaly) at an age of 21 weeks!
Pepper is a gorgeous red and white female with good proportions, nice movement and strait front legs with compact feet. She has a good topline, nice chest, good tail and. Her flashy appearance and spunky expression are remarkable. Her energetic and driven temperament is just as remarkable. She's obviously a child of her mother when you see her running, jumping and retrieving; active and wild but still has good focus to perform well. She's good with other dogs and she just loves kids. Pepper finished her AKC Championship in style, with four majors in a row!! She also has great health results, so seems like she just has it all. We're pretty proud of her!
Nicole: "Pepper is a stunning Dutch import. I fell in love with her when she was a young puppy and after watching her grow for several months I decided she was meant to be a part of our home. Pepper is a beautiful example of moderation and balance. She is very smart and is alert at all times. Her temperament is rock solid, the epitome of what an AmStaff should be, and she is a natural showdog, never putting a foot out of place. Her pedigree is extremely special to us, as she is linebred on our foundation bitch, China."
In 2015 Pepper got her first offspring, an incredible litter after CH W.R. Eye Of The Tiger Coca! He's a stunning brindle male with awesome pedigree that matches with Pepper's beautifully. We've picked Juniper out of this combination and we're really happy with this gorgeous and great tempered female! In 2016 the combination is repeated and Pepper now is retired from breeding.
We'd like to thank Nicole and her family for all they have done, for the cooperation and the good care for Pepper!! :)
