Christie's Titled Off-Spring:

Christie is your typical Velcro Vizsla. She comes from a long line of Best in Specialty show winners, Top Producers, Registry of Merit and Hall of Fame ancestors. She is a wonderful hunting companion & foot warmer ~ she enjoys agility and is a registered Therapy Dog. She was brought into our family as a companion, but ended up turning us on to the wonderful world of canine sports - and the Vizsla community!

Christie has made quite a contribution to the Vizsla breed via the whelping box in just 2 litters. Her first litter alone earned her a 2nd place in the Brood Bitch competition at the Vizsla Club of America Nationals in 2001 (with 6.5 month old offspring, pictured above) & a Top Producer accolade from the VCA in 2003. 5 out of the 6 puppies out of this first litter are titled ~ from conformation, to field, and agility too!

Both of Christie's litters were sired by CH Camelot's Stellar Tarika JH ~ "Terry". For more information on Terry, visit our Friendz page.
