- New Junior Italian Champion at 15 months -

Qualified for Crufts 2006

Best of Breed Winner as a junior

Best Opposite Sex winner at 11 months



Leon in 2012


"Léon"  was only shown as a youngster and has enjoyed life at home with her wonderful family since.




Shown for the first time in August 2004 he was Puppy BOB (Official but not Ch. show).

Some months later, we thought we would show him at Milano Int Show... and there he won and qualified

for Crufts 2006 at 10 months!! He collected a maximum of 15 points towards the Junior

 Italian Ch title from his first 3 official (Int) shows, also owner-handled.

Almost undefeated and always "Excellent", his worst placements are 2 x Exc 2 and 1 x Exc 3 (Int & Spec. shows).

At 14 months, he had 27 points out of 30 needed, several Best Youngster awards,

a BOS at Int Show (11 months) at his credit as well as 2 BOB, also over older dogs!


He's a stunning young Man; ring presence, powerful movement, temperament, long neck,

correct proportions and structure are his highlights. And he's winning hearts!

He was going through the Pets Scheme procedures to be able to compete at Crufts 06 but

due to a vet error he will not any longer. Needless to say we're disappointed :-(


He's adored by and owns the Ploger Family in Bologna.


FLASH: Léon wins BOB over Open dogs at 13 months, April 2005!!

May 2005, now he's been Best Male 3 times (Int & Nat shows) with 2 BOB's under the age of 14 months!

June 2005: New Jr It Champion with a total of 32 points (30 req.), a little over 14 months old!
