Meet Spike; the first born son out of Geisha x Ch. MR Beau Jangles from Gillians Home...and quite a nice one, too!!
Spike was the most naughty puppy of the two boys, since the moment he was born. He pushed Buddha away from the nipple to get all milk for himself. Then I thought: "Hmm, this can get pretty nice!", since he could also have chosen one of the eight other nipples... And yes, weeks went by and Spike developed into a true terrorist, haha! Not just Buddha and mama Geisha were getting attacked more then once a day, even me and our guests became victims of Spike's teeth! Meanwhile he fortunately doesn't bite anymore but he's still very present. He's full of temperament and doesn't back off! Only for his little Shih-Tzu friend, Daisy, because this little girl is in charge in the house! ;)
Spike doesn't only have an impressive temperament, but his looks are just as remarkable! He's a standard size male with strong bone, a good topline, he's harmonious angulated, has good movement and a nice chest. He has a good headpiece with complete scissor bite, spunky expression, dark pigmentation and a beautiful coat and coat color. I've picked him at an age of 6 weeks old, as new addition for the future of our kennel. Too bad he never really liked the show ring, otherwise he could have come quite far, I believe!
Besides great temperament and looks, this guy has wonderful health test results, too!! He's Ataxia Clear, HD A, ED Free, OFA Patella Normal and OFA Cardiac Clear!! We couldn't wish for more. In combination with our girl Lady, he gave us our litter J and we're very pleased so far!! Beautiful, typical and characteristic puppies of whom we've kept two (Jingles and Loki) for the future of our kennel. We sent one baby boy back to Lady's breeder in USA, so most likely he'll also be used for breeding over there. We're planning to use Spike in the future again, so keep your eye on our website, if you're interested!
I would like to thank the Snijder family for taking care and for the nice cooperation! :)
**Spike's available as stud for approved females.**
