- Still happy and full of life, Shadow is enjoying his retirement still in his original family home in Federal Way, WA.
- Shadow is the proverbial poster child for happy show dogs. As a case in point: Shadow traveled with me to the 2007 BCOA National Specialty in CA to exhibit at nearly 11 years of age. Every morning his tail never quit wagging as he jumped up onto the grooming table to let out a full "baroo" to demonstrate his enthusiasm for being at a dog show and wanting his time in the ring again.
- Shadow is standard size, still fit as a fiddle, sweet disposition, full of character and has proven himself to be a sensational stud dog with high achievers in his legacy.
- Sire of 33 champions to date, half of which are Specialty winners themselves, and many of his get have, in turn, produced specialty winners most all of them breeder and/or owner handled because their quality was apparent to judges without the need of a professional handler.
