We first saw Ricardo as a puppy in the nest at his breeders kennels. We expressed an interest in him and 12 months later we saw him again when he was shown at the British Sieger Show 2015. At this prestigious show he was awarded Best Puppy male.

"Ricky" arrived in New Zealand the day after we got home, did his 10 days in quarantine, and very quickly settled in to life at GAVAROL, especially with his old kennel mate VENEZE LOLA.
"Ricky" delighted us by winning the Junior dog, Reserve CC Judge Mike Bradley SV, and then onto Best Junior In show Judge Erich Bosl (Germany) Handled by Barry Black at the SIGSL 50th Jubilee Show.
We look forward to 2016 in the show ring, and also to his progeny .

Our Thanks to John Walsh who gave up his valuable time to train Ricky, and to Blake for his handling in this class. At just 2 years 1 month we are very pleased with this result. Photo shows a "very out of coat" Ricardo and Blake doing their loose lead gaiting.
