CH Santorini's Stellar Loverboy ~ "Zip"

(CH Szizlin Dillon Jackie's Red JH (Dillon) x CH Quail Quest's French Kiss JH (Bisous))

A Sweet boy with an excellent disposition & floating movement ~ he truly lives up to his name! Zip achieved his championship exclusively shown from the Bred by Exhibitor class by his co-breeder & co-owner, Penny Rasins. Along this 'ride', Zip's accomplishments include a Best of Breed from the classes over Nationally ranked Specials for a 5 point major, a Bred by Exhibitor Sporting Group 3 & Invitation to the Eukanuba Bred By Exhibitor Competition.           Says Penny of her boy Zip:

"There is always that one dog you wonder if you should have kept – if it weren’t for the wonderful family that owns Zip, I would have to say Zip is the one “that got away”.  He was always a dream to show, being very cooperative and anxious to please.  His temperament is so sweet that I always looked forward to our show weekends because I knew it would give me some one-on-one with this wonderful dog.  Although there are many dogs that breeders have finished from the bred-by class this was my first and I must say it was the best show experience of my 15 year career in this venue.  Thank you Zip for the great ride, I can hardly wait for the next generation of Zip puppies to take into the ring – they’ll have some large paw-prints to follow in."

Penny Rasins, Zip's co-breeder & co-owner


As a Stud dog, Zip has passed on his laid back, biddable temperament to his puppies, who have a love for life & their humans. Field ability is showing at a young age as well. We anxiously watch these puppies mature & can't wait to get them out competing.

Zip's puppies with Kata have already hit the show ring, picking up points & reserves in their first weekend of shows from the 6 to 9 month puppy class. Stay tuned for Maggie, Ginger & Chambers' pages. (Click here for their puppy pics)
