2020 - news and updates:
The End of an Era
Here are a few of our Leonberger family over the last 25 years
Each has a special place in our hearts.
Gone but not forgotten
I am Still happy to offer help
and advice and help you find
a pup of stud.
I am still judging this wonderful breed and keeping in touch with my worldwide Leonberger Friends and family
I had the pleasure of handling GRAF at Crufts. Owned by Denise & Andy Stewart.
He was a respectable 3rd in Junior Dog @ just over 12 months - such a gorgeous boy.
He is a direct descendant from my lines and so like his uncle ASLAN
Sadly Maalo passed away on 28/08/2020
after a short illness despite
the vets best efforts.
No more Leos left after 25 years
