“Spenser” is beyond handsome with a headpiece to die for. He is moderate in size with a lovely front assembly and is nicely balanced overall. He has a tremendous side gait and moves cleanly. In limited showing, he finished both his American and International Championships and then retired from the ring as a companion to his Owners (Karen and Steve Carnahan, Zenith Vizslas). Besides good looks, he has a lovely biddable temperament and a wagging tail for everyone he meets.
Bred sparingly, he has passed on tremendous quality to his offspring. In July 2014, he earned his Vizsla Club of America Registry of Merit (ROM) title over a mere three (3) litters. Collectively, his offspring has earned five (5) Grand Championships (GCH), eight (8) Championships (CH), two (2) Best in Specialty Show Wins (BISS), Multiple Group Placements, Multiple Award of Merit wins at VCA Nationals, Ranked Special (#8 Vizsla in the Country 2013, and Top 20 so far in 2014), Best in Sweepstakes Winners, Winners/Best of Winners at Specialties, and 1 Master Hunter (MH), and three (3) Junior Hunters (JH). Having spent time with several of his “kids” I can say they inherited both his good looks AND fantastic temperament.
“Spenser’s” pedigree reflects several renown Vizslas, including the VCA Hall of Fame (HOF) Vizslas; “Marker” (BIS BISS Am/Can CH Dirigo Gambler’s Marker ROM HOF) and “Skipjack” (CH Lyon’s Skipjack of Harann ROM HOF), “Cutter” (BIS CH Penlee’s Cutter UD ROM HOF).

Zene completed her AKC Conformation Championship with a 4 Point Major; earning the majority of her points from the Bred-By-Exhibitor class. The day after finishing her title, she took back-to-back Best of Breed wins for two 5 Point Grand Champion Majors – and she made the cut both days in the Sporting Group. As a baby puppy, she won back-to-back Best Puppy in Sweepstakes from the 6-9 month puppy class. Zene has also dabbled in Obedience and she has one Beginner Novice (BN) Leg, we plan to do Rally Obedience as well; and easily earned Canine Good Citizen title. Her passion, though, is BIRDS! She is birdy can be and has a tremendous prey drive (loves rabbits and lizards when birds aren’t around). At 10.5 months old and owner/handled and trained she earned her Junior Hunter title, and we have plans to go onto advanced Hunt Titles in Fall 2014.
Besides her good looks and biddability, Zene has a wonderful temperament, with an up for anything attitude. She is a joy to live with and loves sitting upright in my lap (on her back) and being held. She is my first home grown girl and I could not be happier with her.
Zene’s pedigree reflects holds a proven strength in conformation and versatility:
Her Sire “Rocky” (GCH Can CH Captivatin’ Ain’t He A Knockow’t) finished his AKC Championship at 7 1/2 months old with 5 Majors in only 8 shows. Before age 18 months, Rocky was awarded several Best of Breed wins and earned multiple Sporting Group Placements — all owner handled! With relative ease, Rocky finished his AKC Grand Championship (owner handled) in August 2010. He has also been a formidable producer with six (6) Champions – in 2012 alone, four (4) of his offspring finished their AKC Championships. In both 2011 and 2012, Zene’s Grand-Sire, “Owe’n” (MBISS GCH Tivoliz CC Joint Venture, JH ROM), earned recognition as the #1 Top Producing Sire, and as of 6/2013, he has nineteen (19) AKC Champion offspring.
Her Dam “Csilla” (CH Tamaron Okos Piros Csillag, CD RN JH CGC ROM) is a proven producer earning a Registry of Merit (ROM) from the VCA. Her progeny include a Specialty Show Winner (BISS), (5) Champions and two (2) Grand Champions (two more are Major Pointed), seven (7) Junior Hunters, and (2) Rally Novice (RN) titleholders; along with Multiple Best of Breed, Group Placing, Award of Merit, and Multiple BBE Group Placements. Csilla has consistently passed her faultless temperament and good looks to her offspring. She hails from a successful litter with siblings earning Multiple Best in Specialty Show wins, and a Best in Show.
