Keshisuki's End of the Road for Kyuuten

Eris join us from Keshisuki's kennel in 2013,  She is a stunning red  bitch out of Wendbarry Cherry Blossom at Keshisuki x  F'Tycon Hattori Hanzo Of Neko-Ken (Imp France). 

She is a super laid back girl and a dream to live with. She has super structure, bone and movement, a lovely sweet expression and a fantastic coat. 

Eris hit the show ring in September 2013 and we were delighted with her results, she was placed nearly every time she has been out so far with Best Puppy in Breed, Reserve Best Bitch, Best Bitch, Best Opposite Sex at Championship level and a number of Best Puppy in Breed, Best of Breeds, Puppy Group and Adult Group placings at open show level.  

Eris is now retired from our breeding program due to developing pyometra. She will remain here as a much loved pet.
