is one of the 12 puppies born of a very special litter for
me, my Heritage litter, which combines 3 of my own males (Rebelle,
Aramis and Tornado)
but also two of the greatest H litters from 20 years ago:
The French litter of Hapache & Hermine des Monts d'en Crouzille
and the American litter of Hubert, Handsome, Hollywood, Hallmark
de Lindeau (out of Onassis du Clos des Cedres). It is a true
privilege to be able to combine those pedigrees in this litter.
is a tremendously beautiful little girl, with a superb silhouette.
Her beautiful front and neck assembly allows her to proudly
carry her nice head. Pigmentation could not be any darker.
And I love her long tail (thank you Daddy Aramis) with that
nice J that seems to be disappearing from the breed nowadays.
I have great hopes for my little black beauty. Time will tell.
Paws is growing up into such a beautiful and very feminine
girl. We have not gone to many shows, but managed to get reserve
to a major for her first show and then to win the Sweepstakes
at the Harrisburg Specialty Show in April 2013. She is a very
proud girl, full of life and happiness.
Paws went to the BCA Regional Specialty shows in Canfield
in August and won two 4 points majors, including a specialty
major and another specialty major reserve. She looked fabulous
with Greg Strong as her handler in the ring. I was thrilled
to watch her so feminine and elegant, yet mighty. Paws then
completed her American Championship with ease.
Paws returned to the show ring for the 2014 Harrisburg Specialty
Shows where she was BOS at the Regional Specialty and Select
bitch for the 3 other days, bringing home 4 majors towards
her Grand Championship. We also took a rapid trip up to Canada
to the National Specialty where Paws won reserve Winners bitch.
2014, not quite 2 and a half years old, Paws went to the 2014
US National Specialty and got Selected at the Rassemblement
under French Breeder Judge Jacky Dillies. We are very proud
of our young girl.
Paws is maturing into a stunning girl with great body and
a so, so, typey silhouette, with beautiful proportions, solid
topline, beautiful head, long neck and a nice J tail.
Paws is the mother of our 2015 litter and gave us a gorgeous
litter of 9 black and tawny puppies. Out of this litter we
kept our ms Lily. Paws was
a great mother with her babies. This litter completed her
mental and physical development and she truly has reached
the state of Grande Dame in the family.
In 2018, Paws had a second and last litter, as a line breeding back into the Monts d’en Crouzille part of her pedigree with Fr Ch Louxor des Monts d’en Crouzille. Three puppies were conceived, 2 girls and 1 boy. Mr Oxford was born handsome with that huge head, beautiful long arched neck and that gorgeous black coat. We knew he was special from birth and could not see Oxford simply be a family dog. Oxford (add link to his page) is therefore with us and we are thrilled to have him with his mother and half sister Lily at home.
Despite getting up in age, Paws still rules the house and makes sure that the “kids” do not bicker !
