Jax Major -James Noe.jpg


NEW AMERICAN CHAMPION! Jax finished in 3 weekends inclusive of 2 Specialty majors so he is now AM/CAN Ch.  VanIsle Prairiepine Affirmation.

(Am GCHG. Aurealis Endeavour ROM, 2019 & 2016 AOM CCA X  Am CH & Can. GCH. Afterhours Diamond in the Rough at VanIsle)

He was a little bear of a puppy that owned the ground he walked on right from the beginning…. Huge coat and bone with an extraordinary outgoing personality! Jax finished in a flash in Canada at 7 months, then at just over a year flew down to visit Laurie Jeff Greer. In 2 weekends and 1 day he was sitting on 14 points then came along Covid.

With an iconic Sire (Ryan) and Grandsire (Trooper), Jax did not disappoint. His premier pedigree is chocked full of Am Chs, CCA winners, and ROM’s. Jax has an extraordinary rear, substance, coat neck and a vibrant, full of life personality.
