Kanyon arrived on Monday 1st September 2008 and trotted into the house after a four and a half hour car journey, without a care in the world, making friends with the other dogs immediately! He has the most beautiful, easy going nature, lives very happily with our other neutered male & 2 girls, adores our 5 yr old son, is a wonderful show-man in the ring and is a joy to have with us here as he has us in hysterics as he is such a happy clown!

His dam is 'Hassle' - Int & Ir CH, GB CH Veldtkammer Lady Done A Bunk JW, she is also the UK Breed Record Holder and his sire is 'Pansa' - FCI INT, IT & SPAN CH Shangani Pansa-Dafina.

Kanyon's Hip Score is 5:12, Elbows 0:0 and he has been DNA tested for Haemophilia B Factor IX and is Homozygous healthy/clear. Kanyon has sired 5 lovely litters so far and we are extremely proud of them all. More info on his progeny page. Kanyon is owned solely by Rachel & Wayne.

Here are a few of Kanyon’s critiques:-

Anne MacDonald Birmingham National May 2010.
1st Open Dog - handsome upstanding young dog who was strongly built, well proportioned, in superb muscular condition & looked like he was fit for purpose, well angulated in shoulder and deep in brisket, with good ribbing & compact loin, excellent wide quarters with low hocks & sound driving movement, moved with effortless power, holding his topline. CC his first".

Mr Martin Sanders Border Union CH Show April 2009.

"1st Puppy Dog - dark red of top drawer quality, handsome all through, excellent head qualities which is masculine & well balanced, lovely eye & expression, excellent length in neck which has power & strength, good ridge & topline, he is forward in body development, stands on super bone & compact feet, on the out & back he showed excellent rear drive & good forward reach, his profile was a joy to watch covering the ground with such free flowing strides, in first class order & well handled. In the dog line-up he grew on me even more RCC & BP surely will have a bright future".
