The Shombay pack welcomes Vesper and she is the bitch we chose between Kanyon and Bo.


Vesper has been the naughtiest puppy we have ever had and likes nothing more (as puppies do) than continually winding up the elder members of her pack!  But she has the sweetest of natures, loves to cuddle her human family members and is our son's constant companion or partner in crime!
She is very eager to please and has started her show career off tremendously.


Vesper also helped on the RR Discover Dogs stand at Crufts 2013/14/15.  She absolutely loved all the attention and together with her father and her brother, they were a credit to us and the breed. We are very proud of her!


We hope to plan a litter with her in 2015.
