Australian Champion Glenbrook The Great Gatsby

Gatsby is our first solid pup bred in our own prefix. Sired by Australian Champion Lochranza Walkaround with Pencandy over our sweet Millie - Australian Champion Britebay Thouroughly Modern.

When you first see Gatsby you are taken with his kind expression and beautiful head. But don't be deceived by this angelic look as he has a cheeky nature and is an absolute ratbag around the house and garden, running from one hiding place to another, jumping out to 'grab' you as you pass by. No pair of socks is safe in our house!

Having a solid black boy to show has been a long awaited dream and we are contuing to enjoy his successes in the showring.

News Update - Getting better all the time, Gatsby has so far achieved:
1 Baby in Group, 2 Minor in Group and (1 Minor in Show), 7 Puppy in Group and 6 Junior in Group (1 Junior in Show), 6 Intermediate in Group (1 Intermediate in Show), and 6 Australian Bred in Group awards. Including also 4 Runner-Up in Group placings and a Best in Group win. A special highlight was his Reserve Dog placing at the Royal Melbourne Show in 2014 and 2016. Well done Gatsby.
