Xanthos Nightingale


Born: January 7, 2014
Sire: Eng.Sh.Ch. , Lux. Ch. Zampanzar Say It Again Shardanell JW  (3/27/2009-)
Dam: Icelandic Ch. Xanthos Megiddo JW  (11/11/2011-)
Breeder: Heather Morss, England

It has been a dream for us to get a puppy from Xanthos! We have the highest respect for the impact that Heather has made on the breed.  The ideal opportunity came with the mating to "Archie".  He earned the Golden Retriever Club Top Stud Dog in the United Kingdom in 2013.  This means that he produced the most champions.  Kate has been such a sweetheart from the time we met her.  She is eager to please and constantly happy!  We expect great things from her in the show ring.  The more she develops the more beautiful she becomes.
