Karl is a fine young dog who is 2 years old. He has an excellent personality and when we met him for the first time, we immediately saw that this was a great match for Nessie. We know his Sire - the legendardy DKFTCH DKTM DKBRCH DKJCH Studebaker Bonneville (Mike) who also happens to be siring our own Ravensbank Holly (Holly). Karl has inherited his fathers incredible calmness, and at the same time, he is a talented working dog, whom we will see a lot more from as he grows older. Karl is like Nessie genetically tested clear of CNM, EIC, prcd/PRA, Stargardt and SD2, hence the puppies will be clear by parentage for alle these defects. He has A-hips and 0 in his elbows. He carries a clear ECVO-eye record from 2023.
Squareclose Wendy (Nessie) is bred by Mr. I. W. Christie, and was imported by us from Scotland in June 2018. She is now 6 years and 1 month old and has developed into a very smart looking worker with great natural talent. Above all she is an extremely charming character.

Nessie is easy to train and well mannered. She has passed the Danish Retriever Club Aptitude Test, she has been awarded WT4 in Novice Working Test, and she has been awarded a 1st prize in official cold game test. Nessie has hip score A, elbow score 0, Clear eye certificate from 04-2019, and she is tested clear on CNM, EIC, PRAprcd, Stargardt, HNPK and SD2.

Nessie has manifested herself as an incredibly reliable retriever and member of our picking up team. She is a hard worker and a true solider. At the same time she is a fine companion and great family dog.
