I bought Ike from his breeder Leslie Ann Engen (San Jo Kennels) in 2009. He has earned his CGC and Rally Novice title, and completed his AKC Championship with some impressive BOB wins over top ranked Specials, going on to earn a nice Group 3 win while handled by his auntie Tia McLaughlin (Kumi Lhasa and Shibas). Ike was my first show dog and I learned the ropes with him.
Ike is OFA Excellent for hips, LP Clear, and thyroid tested Normal. I love his type and gentle nature. He is truly a joy to live with, and always a patient and kind Uncle to puppies and new dogs.
Ike is not at public stud.

All of his points were earned in the Pacific Northwest. He went on to earn his first Grand Championship points the next day with a Select Dog his first time out as a Special. What a good boy!
8/25/13 Update: Ike had his first Barn Hunt trial and did very well. He thinks this is a fun game!
03/16/14 Update: Ike kicked butt at his last Barn Hunt trial. He earned his RATN with two 1st placements and even a High in Trial, beating Farrah. What a good boy! I am having a lot of fun doing more work with him as he matures, and he is such a pleasant, easy dog to live with. Maybe we will try Agility again…Ike is also a father now with two strapping young red sons he produced when bred to Farrah. Photos coming soon!
