harif was from our S Litter by Phonzie out of Baby.  He died tragically and unexpectedly at only 2.5 years of age on 6/23/04.  He lived with owners Angela and Bert Pos of Dark Brightness kennel, Espel, Netherlands.  We hope to incorporate Sharif's bloodline into our breeding program in the future.

Sharif began his show career in Europe as a puppy with great success.  He was never rated less than excellent and received flattering critiques from highly respected European breeder judges.  Angela says his crowning attribute was his fabulous movement, commented on by all who observed him.

Sharif only needed only 1 more CAC in Luxembourg to become a champion in that country.  He recently earned his third CAC in Holland -- needing only one more CAC to earn his Dutch championship before his show career was so tragically ended.  Sharif and Angela just recently completed the final requirements for his first level Dutch obedience diploma, adding a CG1 obedience title to the end of Sharif's name.

Angela says Sharif was very open, spontaneous, and enthusiastic in character.  He was quite clownish and got along famously with other dogs and with children. Sharif was a medium-sized dog with lovely type, structure, and movement.  He was moderately angulated, had full dentition, scissors bite, excellent pigmentation and lovely black almond-shaped eyes.

Sharif was a littermate to Promise.
