allevatore: Mr. D.A. Streeter
proprietario: Mr. R.M. Millichap

Potrei scrivere per ore di quanto questo cane mi sia piaciuto ed è banale e scontato dire che lavora in modo strepitoso, perchè ha forse qualcosa in più ancora. E' bellissimo il rapporto così sereno con il suo padrone, è felice di lavorare con lui

e di stargli accanto anche nei momenti di riposo, è allegro e affettuoso con le persone, mai eccitato ne' invadente, serio ed equilibrato con gli altri cani, pieno di energia che straripa da tutto il suo corpo e dai suoi occhi da lupo. Conoscere lui e il suo padrone e vederli insieme al lavoro nelle montagne del Galles è stata un'esperienza veramente interessante e unica.

Riporto qui di seguito le parole di David Rees, handler e giudice ISDS, a proposito di questo cane e di questo accoppiamento:

"I have been asked why I thought Leeloo and Tweed would be compatible and this is my personal opinion. Firstly, the obvious--Dewi Tweed is the current Supreme Champion and only the very best dogs win this l accolade. He is also a true "work dog" with amazing stamina and endurance; he has courage in abundance and he has a great personality---always happy and easy to be around. We do not breed enough from the dogs with these essential attributes, preferring easier to handle "Saturday dogs".

When we breed and look for similarities, we need to always have an objective, or a "common denominator" in mind. If you look at the two lines you will see, through Bwlch Hemp in Leeloo and through Bwlch Hemp and Millichaps Ben in Tweed, lines back to one dog in particular who I decided would be the ideal "common denominator". Robbie Wood's Ben was once described by the late Matt Mundell as Scotlands power dog. I saw a lot of Ben and his dam, Liz,. His grandsire and great grandsire were Wiston Cap and Robbie Woods Sweep, who was the International Shepherds Champion, as was Liz. Both Ben and my Jen are in the maternal line of Bwlch Hemp and in the paternal line of John Thomas Jos and Millichaps Ben, through two female litter mates, Dell and Bonny. Not many people research pedigrees enough to realise that these are two llittermates and consequently that is why the Bwlch Hemp and the Millichaps Ben lines work so well together. In all the years I have been breeding from this line--since around 1968---I have not bred one single pup that would not work. Many of them have become top trial dogs but it is a line that has always produced strong and capable work dogs. That should always be our priority, trialling should be the next thing on the list?

Leeloo has a lot of natural traits; almost perfect outruns every time, with nice tops and firm lifts. She is, like Tweed, easy to live with and is just a handy bitch to have around the farm; the kind of bitch we need to breed from. I only wish it was easier to import young dogs from Italy to the UK. I think a Tweed x Leeloo pup would be good to train. NB. I doubt if they will be pretty, but who cares."

Credo che non ci sia null'altro da aggiungere se non che secondo me invece i cuccioli saranno anche molto belli e perfettamente costruiti, e forse anche molto colorati ;-))
