Photos with many thanks to John & Gillian Mulligan for taking the above photo where he won the RCC in 2019 & below Lena Piehl at Crufts 2020 when he was placed 2nd in a large Limit Dog class. 

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.  He followed up with another BPIB at Darlington, as well as numerous class wins.

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

Phoenix has done very well with limited showing with many class wins and gained his studbook number at East of England Championship show in 2019 with thanks to Breed Specialist Heidi Parsons (Priorpark) when he was awarded the Reserve Challenge Certificate. He has been consistently placed by all rounders and breed specialists, having won himself out of the lower classes and moved into Limit at 20 months old.  Like many dogs his age, he missed out a lot during covid, but we get him out when busy schedules allow.  

He is a special boy with the most accurate, easy stride and most importantly has an outstanding temperament which he has passed onto his progeny.  He has had 3 litters in the UK to date. 

He currently has 2x CC's and a Reserve CC.
