Xena

 

 

8th April 2014

 

Xena has come to New Zealand from Cathkin Kennels in NSW Australia, bred by Gaye Jones. Samson had a long life with us here and Xena has big shoes to fill following on from him.

Arriving just one week before the 2014 National Dog Show she wowed everyone and hit the ground running winning Best Bitch from the Baby Puppy Class in a lovely line up of bitches. She has gone on to achieve 7 challenge certificates and 3 Puppy of Group awards before the end of 2014.

After time out to have a change of coat we are once again campaigning this girl who easily got her final challenge to be awarded the title of New Zealand Champion.
