Group Winning, Multi Group Placing, BPIMBS, UKC Grand Champion Lin-Kel Nanteos Cariad
Ava is a lovely, sweet and soft feminine girl with a beautiful headpiece and fabulous, easy-going temperament. She is a homebody and is happiest hanging out with DH at the home place leaving the traveling show life to the others, we’re letting her do just that!
She began her show career with a Best Puppy in Show at the Great Smoky Mountain Dog Club in Athens, TN. At her very first AKC show at the tender age of 6 months, 12 days, Ava was Winners Bitch and Best of Opposite Sex for her first point under Judge Mrs. Alice Inman in Southaven, MS. The following weekend, in Simpsonville, KY, at the Mason-Dixon Multibreed Dog Association, Ava was either Best Female or Best of Winners to earn her UKC championship in four shows. She’s gone on to win and place in many Herding Groups and in 2010 was #7 Pembroke Welsh Corgi and was invited to compete at the UKC PREMIER Top Ten event.
We are thrilled that Linda Muglach (LIN-KEL), Dr. Gareth Morgan-Jones, and Rick Albee (NANTEOS) offered Ava to us! She brings a wonderful pedigree with her, not to mention a wonderful temperament and side gait to die for. She doubles up on her famous great-grand-sire “Sunny” who surely must be smiling down on her from The Bridge!
Ava is OFA Good for hips and Normal for elbows, N/A (carrier) for DM (degenerative myelopathy), CERF clear, and clear for Von Willebrand’s Disease by parentage. Ava’s OFA page is here.
