We welcome this wonderful typical dog to Australia, the first time I laid eyes on Ekko I was spell bound, I virtually couldn't move. He was and is magnificent and so typical.
Easy going, full of spirit, funny, sleeps a lot but also an excellent guard dog..... He loves everyone he meets.
Ekko is the highest ever winning Breed Specialist Dog to ever come into Australia. The winner of 5 CC's, he is a multi BISS winner. Shown in Netherlands, England and now in Australia.
We thank Dyllis & Gary Knight for entrusting us with Ekko on his short visit to Australia.
Ekko has a superb character, excellent head and excellent type. We look forward to campaigning Ekko over the next 12 months in Victoria and throughout Australia.
Ekko will be mated in 2010 to Multi BISS Ch Grandbelge Diva, Ch Grandbelge Della, Grandbelge Ebene, Ch Grandbelge Cleopatra and fingers crossed her last litter Ch Ninja V’t Belgisch Schoon.
Ekko gained his Australian Championship Title in 10 weeks of competition under local and International Judges currently sitting on 350 cc points in only 7 months of showing in Australia.
What a wonderful Journey we at Grandbelge have had. Our sincere thanks to Gary & Dyllis Knight of Noirdael Belgians UK for allowing us to have Ekko in Australia for the past 12 months, he has given us some beautiful, typical babies "J" & "K" litters. We wish Ekko as he returns to the UK all the success we know he will have...
(Graeme Carroll & Nicholas Luke, Grandbelge)
