Vart was the turning point in my kennel and breeding program. His enthusiasm and love of life persuaded me to change my bloodlines. He is the cornerstone of my breeding program today and his progeny are also foundation stock in many kennels in Canada, Mexico, South Africa and the US. Imported from Holland when he was 21 months old, little did I know the impact he would put into the breed. To date he has 18 Champions and more to finish that are pointed. He has also produced five group placers, more than any import has produced.
