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.
