Weskyuwin (CKC) Perm. Reg'd
PETIT BASSET GRIFFON VENDEEN since 1998
Amonvhar D'Arryos Weskyuwin ~ Jak
After 20 years in Great Pyrenees it was time to add some 'spice' to WESKYUWIN. Along came the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, or PBGV, the rough and tough hunting hound of the Vendeen region of France. This breed has captivated our hearts.
Introducing "JAK"...a great dog like this comes once in a lifetime. JAK has already broken long standing breed records as a puppy...and the BEST is yet to come! We are taking time out in 2002 to give Jak a well-deserved break from the show ring...but we will be back in '03. Hard to keep a good dog and his proud owners out of the ring!
JAK is co-owned with his "best bud" and handler Janine A. Starink of AERDENHOUT kennels in Tsawwassen, British Columbia.
