Spinnaker is a beautiful boy who hails from the world-renowned Xanthos Kennel in the UK where Heather Morss has dedicated decades of time and energy to her outstanding breeding program.
Spinnaker is the son of Heather's beautiful "DUTCH" (International Champion Xanthos Mondriaan) and was bred by Brigit Vlaar in Holland out of her beautiful
VDH and German Club Champion Goldstrike Wild Cherry. His pedigree is stacked with influential champions known for producing consistently in both character and structure.
Spinnaker had a smashing start to his career in the UK appearing in the esteemed Golden Retriever Club Centenary show in July 2013 at only 6 months of age where he received a "highly commended" rating in
a class of 14 minor puppies.
He went on to strut his stuff in the show ring and gained his Junior Warrant in a record 3 months.
Spinnaker then went on to prove his versatility by completing his Show Gundog Working Certificate with ease; confirming that he is a boy with both beauty AND brains!!
While still in the UK, Spinnaker was campaigned as a junior dog at the prestigious CRUFTS dog show (2014) where he placed an impressive 2nd in a large class of quality goldens.
Spinnaker is an extremely sweet and confident boy who quickly wins his way into the hearts of all those he meets. He is infectiously happy and his tail never stops wagging.
He is proudly co-owned by Michele Tuominen, Jamie Veraldi and Christina Degazio. We will be forever grateful to Heather Morss for allowing this spectacular boy to
cross the ocean and join us here in Canada.

"Kind expression and gentle eye telling you everything you need to know about his temperament.
Suitably co-ordinated for his age with excellent thick cream coat covering well made frame, super topline and tailset, correctly constructed angles don't come any better.
Covers the ground well, moving on long stride driving well from behind. Just had that extra sparkle." (judge: Elizabeth S Fisher)
