Gwen's boundless energy is reflected in her movement; she gaits briskly and effortlessly around the ring while her handler struggles to keep up. At all times her topline remains firm and she holds her head high. She became a champion at the early age of 12 months, 4 days.

Gwen is out of CH. El Toro Heall Possum Boots and CH. Phoebe Of Homebrook and combines her father's breed type with her mother's enthusiasm for the show ring - and life in general. We love her deep, rich red colour and playful, happy-go-lucky demeanour. She is larger than her older sister Cassie weighing 2.45kg (5.4lb). Check on the progress of Gwen's latest progeny!
Gwen's wins include:
21 Challenge Certificates
5 Best of Breeds (once again usually overshadowed by our boys)
Puppy Of Group at the Hutt Valley Kennel Centre Championship Show 8th July 2007
CH. Moonglade's Gwendolen
Her show career began on March 25th 2006 - the day she turned four months old - but initially yielded little success. Although she has a very willing nature, Cassie suffered from lack of confidence as a puppy and a lot of work went into bringing the best out of her. She finally came into her own in September 2006 when she won her first challenge at the National Curtain Raiser show, and became a champion in early 2007 at the age of 15 months.
Cassie is now retired from the show ring, but during her two-year career she achieved:
26 Challenge Certificates
3 Best of Breeds (usually beaten by her father!)
Bitch Challenge and Reserve of Breed at the NZKC
ProPlan National Curtain Raiser 2006 and 2007.
D.O.B: 25th November 2005
