Jaayd's Head Study



Jaayd is a very handsome medium blond colored male with an outgoing, happy go lucky temperament. Judges have commented on his excellent breed type, lovely masculine headpiece, good prosternum, and good front and rear angulation. Also, they say he is well balanced and a powerful mover with a ground covering stride. Jaayd has exceptionally good coming and going movement.

He has a scissors bite, full dentition, dark eyes and good pigment. His hips are OFA "Good" rated and he has OFA "Normal" Elbows and "Heart". His eyes have been "CERF" cleared.

Jaayd is very outgoing, loves to show and never lets down, and at the same time he is intelligent, easy to train and a joy to live with. Special thanks to Carol Morrison and Shannon Scheer for their expert presentation of Jaayd in the show ring.

Jaayd is proudly owned by Dave Hilliard and his daughter Diane.

Jaayd's Show Record

Jaayd had a whirlwind show career in 2001, finishing his Canadian Championship in 5 days from start to finish taking 4 Winners and 1 Reserve his first time shown. As a move up on the Specialty weekend Jaayd took Best of Breed and Sporting Group 4th and the next day he won BOS at the 2001 GRCBC Specialty, both wins over Goldens Ranked #1 in Canada.
