**AUSTRALIAN GRAND CHAMPION Darkat Achtung Baby**
Babe
Babe was the first born in the litter, weighing in at 1000grams at birth this young man has a special place in our hearts for many reasons. Nicknamed the "Clown" mainly because he actually is one! he oodles personality and is quite the showman.
Babe impressed us with his typical Dane like temperament and willingness to please from the start but most of all his carriage and presence is what caught our eye and it often can be the very thing that can set apart the great dogs from the good ones . He displays correct Dane movement, lithe springy action with good reach and drive, he has all the Dane characteristics we strive for in the breed.
We recognise that this young fellow will mature slowly, so with patience we wait for him to develope , nice and slow , although it is rewarding that many judges already have recognised this young puppy's qualities,  awarding him multi BOB against older, titled competition and numerous class in groups.
Babes most recent wins include Reserve DC and Puppy in Group at Australia Day International show under Mr J Peddie from Canada.26/Jan/2010 and 20/Feb/2010 was awarded a 14 point BOB under All Breeds judge Mr John Sheppard(NSW) at Sunshine Kennel Club.
We invite you back to look in on Babes progress as he matures, we will update his picture gallery and results regularly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unfortunately Babe bloated and was operated on at just under 8 months of age, he was 68 kilo before his op and now we are gradually increasing his weight slowly on a special diet. We will be spelling Babe from the show ring until he has his condition back on.

 

 

Babe is enjoying relaxing around the home, treks out the bush and socializing down the local dog park...What a life!!

 

 

 

 

After Babe having over 9 months out of the ring this year, recovering from his surgery he has come back in style with numerous BEST OF BREEDS, Age Class in Groups and to finish off the year with..
