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 iconic Grandsire (Trooper), Jax did not disappoint. His premier pedigree is chocked full of Am Ch., CCA winners and ROM’s.
Jax has an extraordinary rear, substance, coat neck and a vibrant, full of life personality.
Jax is currently standing at stud with Debbie Jones in Texas! Please contact her or myself if you are interested. You can see puppies from his first litter on our puppy page!
#4 Smooth Collie in Canada in 2019!
GCH& AM CH. Prairiepine Afterhours Lady Million RI,HI “Rya”
Her very first day shown Rya took a BPIS and hasn’t stopped since! As Rya celebrated her 8th birthday this year, she once again placed in the top 5 smooths which she has done every year she has been shown.
As a 6 week old puppy Rya was stunning, with correct type and a beautiful body. Today at 8 years – we can say the same.
Rya is truly “One in a million”!
