NEO is a "singleton" male out of our 'Izzy' bred to Sherri Doratti's 'Sunny'.
NEO is our "Ambassador of Goodwill" He's such happy guy -- intelligent, proud, sweet guy & not the least bit shy. Everybody is his friend and if you'd like to sit down, he'll gladly share the space with you.
NEO inherited everything we'd envisioned from his papa Sunny & mom Izzy. He has a beautiful headpiece, rock solid top line & wonderful front. His structure, balance, bone and type are consistent with his breeding. Throw in his sensible personality -- NEO is everything & more than we had imagined! When you've only been given ONE and it's the quality of this little guy - well, that's quite a blessing!!
NEO made his show ring debut this last summer (2012). In very limited showing & after a few turns around the ring, it's as if he said "Okay, I get it. How about I do this?..." winning his first points from the 9-12 Puppy Dog) class Winners Dog, Best of Winners & Best of Opposite Sex for a 4 POINT MAJOR!
He showed a couple of more days, lastly in July, ending the summer with 7 points and a BEST OF BREED & Best of Winners.
January, 2013, Neo showed at Puyallup, WA winning two more consecutive majors, Best Of Winners and Best of Breeds! He also was awarded Best Bred-By-Exhibitor!
He followed those wonderful wins with a 4th Major, at the first day of the Rose City Classic held in Portland, OR, under Judge James Covey to finish his AKC Championship from the Bred-By-Exhibitor class!
We are so proud of our NEW CHAMPION! This guy is so enjoyable in every way!
NEO has since had an exemplary show "career". With limited showing he has remained a National TOP 20 English Setter for 3 consecutive years 2014-2016! I'll be updating all of that soon, along with adding the additional joy he has given us with his kids!
