Finally, we can present You a stunning dad of our planned litter. We had chosen –  Nuphar’s EVERYTHING ZEN (more about him here – http://www.nuphars.nl/litteratohbilly.htm) a.k.a. Billy. As with ILA,  all Billy’s health test results are perfect, as well as those of  his siblings and parents (pedigree below). Billy has a wonderful character (he believes that during the greeting his head should be on same level as Yours ;)) Billy is in the process of collecting points for Dutch Champion and International Champion. Billy weighs 28 kg and measures 59 cm, so his bulkiness and robust body is very similar to our ARGO. Mom of future dad, is one of the most successful females in breed – Quaciendas ALBA AQUA-AURA.
