Congratulations, Jose!
I don't think there is any greater honor than to be contacted by someone you respect,and who has been in the breed a long time, with an inquiry about a litter you have bred.  When you share a vision and you each base equal value on type, structure, movement and temperament, common ground becomes an incredibly precious commodity.

And so it is with Jose Franseschi and I.  I consider myself lucky that "Dottie" shares her life with him.  Jose and I enjoy each other's company and can talk dog pedigrees all night long (especially with the time change between us!)  Jose has bred beautiful PWDs under the kennel name Grand-Lares since 1992. I am blessed to call him a friend and excited that we both appreciate the beautiful qualities in "Dottie."  

Jose handled "Dottie" to a Group 1 from the classes in April of 2013 for a 4-point major (what a THRILL for him!) and has also shown her to three other additional group placements!  She is also pointed in Canada as well.  In the fall of 2013 Jose sent her "state-side" to be shown and she accumulated another 8 points toward her championship.   She is a sound moving bitch with beautiful rib spring, nice substance, balanced proportions, a strong, thick tail base, dark eyes, a deep chest and a rock solid topline with correct tail carriage.  She is back in Puerto Rico now and needs just a major to finish.
