Much rejoicing here when Samuel Escande agreed to let us have Jerome. He is by the sire of champions Brick ( elite A, cotation 6) ex working champion Bella ( winner of many firsts at championship level, and, at an earlier Elevage, the Prix Marcel Pembrun). Jerome’s full sister won Junior bitch at the 2014 Elevage in Cerilly – 23 entries, and CAC at the Brittany Elevage 2015. The Ramondens champion – studded group won the “meute” ( best pack) prize from 18 other groups in 2014. Jerome’s half sister out of Bella was third out of the 34 entries in the ” working” class too.
Born 26th May 14, Jerome has a stunning head and is both clever and confident, he’s fitted in well here and we are delighted with his progress so far. Between ten weeks of age and four months he was reared in Normandy by Linda and Malcolm Lees, so he is especially fond of wolfhounds !
During 2015 & 2016 Jerome sired three litters – an outcross, a very low COI line breeding and a closer COI breeding to a Brick granddaughter. His offspring so far are free of hernias and tail kinks, the males are entire, and every puppy is full of confidence and joie de vivre. The puppies that have been shown so far have done very well and many have their father’s super head. Particularly pleased with ” Basil” who won a res CC on his first outing and is possibly the best dog puppy I have bred so far.
