Tyke is just about perfect for me :-)
He stands about 50cm tall, and weighs 16kgs. He has a super happy nature, a real 'Mr Serious' about everything - even having fun is serious to Tyke! His temperament and work drive are both fantastic, his conformation is super, he really is everything I had hoped for from this combination. He is a real thinker, and has an awesome attention span, he's just a dream of a dog to live with, he is definitely a workaholic!
We have done quite a lot of tracking and have passed the UK Tracking dog L1 test - the first in the UK to do so with no previous working trials qualifications :-)
He has done a couple (literally 2!) agility shows and is certainly very keen, free time is very rare so I can't get him to shows, which is a shame as he would've done very well I think.
Tyke sired one litter of pups (Bekkis kennel) and they are looking fantastic, I am very proud of them all - 5 girls, all measuring intermediate for agility. Pictures below - first is L-R Dottie (mum), Whispa, Layla, Misty and Indie all together at a show, and then Jazz who is the image of her daddy!
