Oona was born as one of three bitch puppies. Her dam was mated to a successful Australian male prior to importing . Little did we know what we were about to get.

The little litter developed beautifully, and each of the puppies found a wonderful home. They did look promising and balanced as puppies, but just slightly different to what we were used to. The months made us more aware of the little difference. When our puppies had done very well in the show ring before by winning Best of Breeds, even placings in Group, these little ones were flying around the ring beating whatever there was to beat. As puppies and juniors they went directly to the top by winning Groups and being placed at Best in Show competitions. And they never looked back.

The whole litter gained their championships in no time. They all finished their international titles with ease. They all were hip scored excellent or good and all had clear eyes. They all passed their character tests with flying colours. Not to mention the working capacity there is in these little girls. Pepsi has finished her obedience championship with Iris and she is successfully working also in agility with Jussi. Mette and Ella compete in obedience class 3 and tracking trials class 2.

Oona is sensitive, intense worker both in agility and obedience. Her incredible speed and eagerness doesn`t always make things too easy, but you can never blame her of being lazy or reluctant... She loves action, and finds her way for it. She can be a real clown. She enjoys acting soft and sweet, but when the true occassion comes, she can be as hard as steel. It is never boring with her around.

Oona started her show career at 10 months of age by winning Best Exhibit in Group and 5th in Show at an international all breed championship show. She has gained result Best of Breed altogether 28 times (so far), and 17 times of those she has also been placed in Group level. She has won Best in Group 7 times, and each time she has also been placed in Best in Show competition. Her start at relatively young age didn`t mean she would be past it early, she continues to win even now, at the age of 5½ years.

Oona has previously had just one litter. There were two male puppies out of Pikkupaimenen Dash of Pepper, Chili.
"The twins" Ziggy and Pepe are soon 2 years of age, and they have started they career by winning 5 cc`s so far. They are now waiting to turn 2, as they can`t work towards their championship before that.
