The first BAR bitch
Owner's comments: We were among the most fortunate people in the circle of Tervuren owners, for we were privileged to have Jasmine share her life with us for almost 12 years. In the latter years of the 1950's, we believed an introduction of improved type, classic heads, elegant, long arched necks were needed in the Tervuren lines in the US. After studying the photos and pedigrees of various European kennels, we decided upon a daughter of Eros de Cledeville, a proven show winner, notable for his perfect head proportions and expression. Jasmine proved her worth as a producer in her first litter, all five of which became champions. With four other studs, she also produced champions and her fine qualities continue to shine through in succeeding generations. Jasmine was the first female BAR winner, for conformation and obedience points. She has amassed more points than any of the males, except for Dandy. There will never be another like "Taffy", but we will keep hoping for one.

Ch Jasmine de Cledeville arrived in New Mexico on July 7, 1960. Many current pedigrees justify their faith in her. She was our first female BAR winner. Called "Taffy" by the Krohns, she was bred by Mme le Moro in France. She completed her championship at the age of three and a half years with three majors. For her fist litter, she was bred to Dandy. There were five puppies, all of which later became champions!
