Kate – GRCH Katmary’s Rainbow of Forest Lakes CGC TKN

Katerina joins us from Russia where her parents are top performers. Just look at the list of titles on her pedigree! Outside of the ring, Kate is very chill – she was perhaps the calmest puppy we’ve ever encountered! However, Kat is a powerhouse in the ring; with stunning presentation and amazing movement! We are so in love with this little lady!

Kat earned a Reserve Best in Show Puppy (RBISP) in August 2021 over 11 other breeds of pups and Best Puppy/Best Female/Best of Winners over 6 other stellar standard poodles in September 2021; defeated only by our very own Romeo in Best of Breed (BOB).

In November 2021, at 8 months old, Kate attended two days of shows. She earned four BOB, two Group 4s, a Group 3 and a Group 1; beating out three champions each time including our own Blaze! The first two wins finished out her championship and the second two earned her two legs toward her Grand Championship (and she beat our own Romeo)! At our first show of 2022, at 10 months old, Kate earned her Grand Championship with 3 Champion class wins over 2 other champions and a Best of Breed. In her first show as a Grand Champion, she won the GRCH class, BOB and a Group 2 for Gun Dogs. 

Kate is clear for all identified genetic diseases found in the breed as well as 204 other genetic diseases. She passed her PennHip and preliminary elbows with flying colors. We look forward to completing her final health testing when she has matured. 

D.O.B. 3/3/2021

Strengths: eyes, head, neck, carriage, squareness, rib spring, shoulder layback, rear angulation, feet, coat and movement
