STORIES ABOUT ME
Foxy is in every way her mother’s daughter, with some improvements. The Ruska and Ressi combination was suggested by Taina Miettinen, and we could not be happier with the results! Foxy was one of two puppies born in that litter, and we knew early on that she would be a “keeper.” She could not be more endearing to us. At the same time, she has her mother’s feisty nature and intelligence.
Wherever Leeza is in the house, Foxy probably is as well. Foxy would sit on top of Leeza at all times if permitted. This sort of loving is used as a positive reward for Foxy, as it is what motivates her most. Foxy loves running in her yard, having anyone and everyone rub her stomach (a breed trait), eating berries, and play time with puppies.
Foxy's sire, Fin WT Ch JK3 BH Lecibsin Kultakuono, was deceased at the time she was born. We only had one chance to "get it right." Imagine our delight when we learned that Ruska was pregnant with two puppies. Foxy was that exceptional puppy we kept, and we could not imagine like without her.
Ressi was a sought after sire and stud dog in his lifetime. He only produced a selected number of litters. He proved to be a very special combination with Ruska. We feel very lucky to have produced one of his final litters.
Foxy is currently taking a break from showing in conformation. She may be back in Canadian and US shows in between litters, if she is in condition.
Foxy is focused on being a mother, having produced 2 litters to date. She is the dam of EeJW-18 JWW-18 Bearspaw Innovations So Fiery, "Merkki" (co bred with Shaunna Bernardin). Merkki is at Kennel Peikkovuoren with Taina Friman and Ari Friman. Merkki became the first North American bred Lappy to become a World Winner.
