We are delighted to introduce our import from Belgium - Villagedogs Rise of Phoenix at Saadani who has joined us from Dorothy McGoldrick's highly regarded kennel. Phoenix is a fabulous boy with a gorgeous head, lots of bone, beautiful conformation, ground covering movement which is so true and a character to die for.  We are delighted with how he is growing, born on 28th January 2018 he hit the show ring in style winning Best Puppy in Breed at Paignton Championship show and qualifying for Crufts 2019 in his first class.  

Phoenix is owned in partnership with Claire Muir who he lives with (alongside his big brother Nevis aka Saadani Show Off), Sharon Rossiter of the Sonstraal Kennel and his Breeder, Dorothy McGoldrick.
