Amelie was a sure pick for a breeder, a puppy with amazing yet correct coat, wonderful type, a head to die for and a temperament of the best kind. There was no hesitation about this puppy. Even though she too passed the phase of an ugly duckling, she is getting more and more beautiful every day.

She has inherited her mother’s curiosity and clown gene. Her happy mood catches everybody and she is fun to watch and show. Amelie passed the breed trials at young age and made us very proud.

And when she was 10 months old and won the breed, I was breathless. At the age of 13 months she won the breed at the Finnish Winner show and was 4th in a big group, where all the possible breed were represented.

At the age of 17 months this girl has 9 titles and 6 x Best of Breeds on her shoulders! We’ll see, what the future will bring, but Amelie has made me proud of her in so many ways already.

Amelie will not be a part of our breeding program, but nevertheless she is a much loved member of the family.
