Fyedka is one of only two boys from Etoile's first litter to Triomph. He is a true chip of the old block, having a lovely soft, coy nature like his daddy Triomph, and always ready to fall over on his back when given a cuddle. He also offers his paw ever in hope of some affection. This lovely all European boy has grown into a fine stud dog following in the footsteps of his daddy.
We were over the moon with his health results, especially his hip xrays. Fyedka rates within the top 10% of leonbergers recorded worldwide for healthy tight hips. He is at least 83cm (31 1/2 inches tall) but has not finished developing yet, as his lines are very slow to develop. He is a true old fashioned French lines, tall leo lad, with a fabulous solid black mask and really dark brown soft eyes.
To date he has only sired one litter to our Fendi (2007), as she is the only girl we have, who is unrelated to him. We are strongly against
"line-breeding" or inbreeding, so Fyedka's use as stud in our breeding programme is on hold until we aquire another female, outcross to his lines, because Fendi has retired from breeding.
