“Archie” is owned and loved by Craig and Courtney Barclay in San Diego.  He has the best life ever living right on the beach and is spoiled by his doting parents.

Archie finished his AKC Championship title at the Vizsla Club of Southern CA Specialty show with his third Major and finishing from the Bred By Exhibitor Class. Archie is a handsome boy with nice bone, substance and tail carriage and clean movement, he has a handsome masculine head and a very biddable and sweet temperament. He is 24.5″ tall and weighs 55 lbs.

He loves birds and will be training for Hunt Titles in Spring 2019.

Archie’s pedigree reflects holds a proven strength in conformation and versatility:

His Sire, “Spenser” (Am/Int’l CH Zenith’s Suspense Thriller, ROM) has been bred sparingly, and 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” 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.

“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). More information on VCA Hall of Fame: http://vcaweb.org/breed/hall_of_fame.shtml.

Spenser’s Sire: “Kipper” (BISS Am/Int’l CH Vasara’s One for the Kipper, JH) has been a formidable producer with offspring winning Multiple Best in Shows (BIS) in US and Australia, Multiple Specialty Show Wins (BISS), Multiple Grand Champion (GCH) and Champion (CH) titles, and Top Ranked Specials (US). In 2010, he received a Registry of Merit (ROM) from the VCA.

His Dam “Zene” (CH Moonlight’s Rock’n Ow’t, RN JH CGC) completed her AKC Conformation Championship with a 4 pt Major; earning the majority of her points from the Bred-By-Exhibitor class. In 2011, she also won back-to-back Best Puppy in Sweepstakes at the SCVC in Walnut, and VCSC in Pasadena.  The day after finishing her CH 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.  She easily completed her JH (Junior Hunter) title and has a Novice Obedience Leg. Her progeny are doing well in the show ring and field and I could not be happier with their lovely temperaments.

Zene’s Sire “Rocky” (GCH/CanCH Captivatin’ Ain’t He A Knockow’t, ROM) 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. In a short time he has been a tremendous producer with six (6) Champions – in 2012 alone, four (4) of his offspring finished their AKC Championships, several are Grand Champions and one has a Best in Specialty Show Win (BISS).  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 2013, he has nineteen (19) AKC Champions.

Zene’s Dam “Csilla” (CH Tamaron Okos Piros Csillag, CD RN JH CGC ROM) is a proven producer earning her Registry of Merit (ROM) Certificate; she produced a Best in Specialty Show (BISS) Winner, five (5) Champions, two (2) Grand Champions (two others are Major Pointed), seven (7) Junior Hunters, and a Rally Novice (RN) titleholder; 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.
