was little Bordeaux when I went to visit the puppies out of
Sage and Chili, at their breeder Zsofi Pecseri’s home in Budapest,
Hungary. 10 puppies born from frozen semen. In one day, I
had to make my choice and while I liked several of the puppies,
I was attracted to the smallest one, that little boy, steady
on his feet and always very attentive to me. He was a small
boy, which actually made the trip in cabin easier for that
very long flight back home and he never made a sound. He was
the perfect trooper, leaving the extremely hot Hungary and
the backyard where he had been raised, and jumping with no
fear into a bright new world.
One year later, Deauville is a very handsome, masculine boy,
with lots of bones, a beautiful head and silhouette and a
super sweet nature. He and his father Sage still like each
other and spend their days together. He has learned the passion
for the ball from Sage and follows Sage all day long. Deauville
has a magnificent coat and is a real pleasure to watch floating
around the yard. Such an open and light footed gait on this
Now it is time to start training and get to some shows ! He
did so at the regional specialty shows in MA, where he won
Best of Winners all 5 days, including at the Specialty, earning
his first series of points towards his AKC Championship. Several
of his siblings in Europe are already Youth Champions in multiple
countries. All have done quite well and I am very happy for
their breeder Zsofi that Sage was able to contribute to this
went on finishing his championship in early October 2016,
shown as always by the Greg Strong team. He finished the year
at the huge AKC shows in Florida, where he competed against
all mature dogs and won Select dog all days. He has grown
into a magnificent young boy. We could not love his beauty
and his temperament more.
Since then, Deauville has continued to collect awards and
been consistently recognized. He is a top 10 briard in breed
and all breed systems, and has won group and group placements.
At the 2017 National Specialty, he won an Award Of Merit,
a repeat performance from the Regional specialty which took
place the day before the national and was judged by French
expert Alain Pecoult. Deauville is the only briard who was
awarded at both shows. Our teenager boy does turn heads !!!
Deauville is truly an extremely high quality briard, with a gorgeous body, neck, tail, beautiful easy gait, perfect angles and of course that amazing coat. And that friendly temperament. He always greeted the judges with his wagging tail. He had an incredible show carrier. He was never able to compete for a full year due to many external factors, one of which being Covid, but despite that, he has established quite a record for himself. He has won 24 group 1s, a total of 115 group placements, Reserve Best in Show, 1 Best in Specialty, several Select at National and Regional Specialties. He was Selected by our French Rassemblement judge. Now he is a retired Grand Champion and enjoys being a pet. We hope that we will be able to have some Deauville children in the future.
