Bailey is a Kierra daughter from her first litter to the handsome Buzz and she resides in Victoria with her owner Meghan. Bailey has matured into a very impressive girl, and is a beautiful blend of both her parents. Of correct size, and well-proportioned she shares their beautiful free flowing, active gait, and has been awarded Best Gaited Bitch at Specialty Show. With limited showing Bailey achieved her Champion title on 29th December 2007, with many of her challenge certificates awarded from Breed Specialists. Bailey easily completed her ET on Saturday 24th May. She gaited effortlessly throughout the 20km run with her finishing heart rate of 64 beats/minute much lower than her starting heart rate, proving that correct conformation facilitates efficient and economical movement. Bailey came to stay with us at Kushika Kennels in the second half of 2008 for her first litter and she is the dam of our "Secret" litter, which has produced Best in Show, Multiple Best in Specialty Show and Runner Up Best in Specialty Show winning progeny.
