PLANNED/CURRENT LITTERS

Winter Litter (puppies would be ready in January 2019):

 

Aoife (Spiralline Tarango of Contender) has now been mated to FTW CASTLEMANS SONORAN (FTW Brockweir Blitz of Smithstead x FTCH Tweedshot Thistle of Levenghyl). This litter has been planned for more than 2 years and I'm aiming at keeping a dog and a bitch puppy from this litter.  Aoife will be spayed after this litter.

 

These puppies are most likely to be slow maturing so if you're in a hurry, this will NOT be a puppy for you however if brought on right then you'll have a fantastic dog with some of the strongest, proven bitch lines.

Because of the time of the year, I'm not able to keep any puppies for longer than 8 weeks of age. The puppies will be 8 weeks of age in the beginning of January '19.

 

Health Tests:

Castlemans Sonoran: Hips '3/5, Elbows '0/0' , BVA eye cert ' unaffected' (17), DNA clear of PRA & CNM.

Spiralline Tarango of Contender: Hips '0/5' , Elbows '0/0' , BVA eye cert ' unaffected ('18), DNA clear of PRA, CNM & SD2.

The price of a puppy is always the same irrespectively of sex or colour. A deposit of £150 is required to reserve a puppy.

 

** All litters are KC endorsed  which will be removed when the dog has been hip, elbow & BVA eye tested with results meeting recommened breed guidelines.  **

 

Contender puppies are sold to shooting homes, trialling homes, active pet homes but also as detection dogs. They've found new homes across the UK as well as abroad. Working homes will always get priority.

 

 

BEFORE YOU COMMIT:

As we're now in a situation where more and more DNA tests become available some will have more relevance for certain lines than others which means that the dogs will not necessary always have been tested for every single condition.  Remember that you can now look up any dog and it's health test results absolutely FREE on MyKC (link below).
