Above, Graham is showing Savvy to his
Best of Breed Win in New Zealand
Savvy easily won his New Zealand
Championship - UNDEFEATED in breed!
Savvy has remained undefeated in
breed through eleven (11) shows!
Of any Berner I've ever
lived with, Savvy is perhaps the most true to all the wonderful
Bernese traits. He's healthy, huge, mellow, devoted, strong, gentle,
loves to please his human and he's incredibly intuitive. I can put
young puppies with Savvy and he is a great caretaker, just like his
father Panner used to be.
Savvy is Vinny's
littermate and these brothers were raised together from puppyhood.
However, their lives were destined to be parted because Savvy lives with my good friends, Graham and Chrissy Langford, Brienz
Kennel in New Zealand.
On purpose, I have only
shown Savvy twice. He did well both times, although his brother,
Vinny, beat him. (The boys are very comparable but Vinny matured
faster). I have held Savvy back because he was destined for New
Zealand and I didn't want to take a chance on anything that could
compromise that plan. This is also the reason he is not available to
stud in the USA.
At age 18 months, Savvy
weighs a lean 125 lbs and is 26-1/2 inches tall at the shoulder.
I am very proud to be
Savvy's breeder and I hope for wonderful things for Savvy in the
heartfelt THANK YOU to Dr Dan Brown and the team at the Animal Clinic and Hospital of Moscow, Idaho! Because of their expertise in
Veterinary care, Savvy made it to New Zealand without
any quarantine issues.
If you live
anywhere near Moscow, ID, I highly recommend this
wonderful veterinary facility to you.
also highly recommend WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital
and their wonderful team of veterinary professionals.
They have helped Savvy and all of my Berners at one time
or another. Special thanks to Dr Michelle Powers and
Kelly Hughes, who did a superb job with Savvy's

This is the day after
Savvy was released from 30 days of Quarantine after his arrival in
New Zealand. Savvy won Best Dog On Parade.

where Savvy finished his NZ Championship)
