STORIES ABOUT ME

"Merkki" began to stand out as a show prospect as a young puppy. As we watched the Spicy litter develop, we struggled with who would be the best person for Merkki. Not since Bearspaw Sampo, Merkki's uncle, have we felt so strongly about a young puppy's potential. As a result, at a young age, we committed to keeping him until we found the best place for him to be.

 

As the litter matured, Taina Friman contacted us about the possibility of Merkki returning to Finland and Kennel Peikkovuoren. To the best of our knowledge, Merkki is the first North American bred dog to return to Finland. Merkki's pedigree represents generations of Peikkovuoren dogs and Taina's breeding ideas. We cannot think of a place we would rather Merkki be.

 

Merkki has already made Peikkovuoren and Bearspaw Kennels proud. He became an Estonian Junior Winner, qualifying for Crufts, and a World Junior Winner in Amsterdam, 2018. Merkki is the first North American bred Lappy to show at a World Show, much less win a World Winner award.
