Nat-King de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre. My 5th generation of Vieux Barbets.
…Because not everyone is on a social network…
Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Valentine’s day is the perfect day for an announcement of importance. As many know, we are reaching the end for the old breed. After many years of working to reach my objective,I have decided to go to the next step.
I am looking for a female “outside” the box to continue the Vieux Barbet line. The ultimate objective is to use the stored “straws” of Ulysse di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco to help in the survival of the breed, the old breed.
She must be of proper type/morphology and temperament.
I’d rather stay away from brown.
I must be able to work with someone I can trust and there will be terms to a contract we will establish together. This will be to avoid any abuses or excesses.
What we see more and more at dog shows is some very Modern Barbet specimens and rarely the old breed.. especially in France where judges have merrily deviated on the breed and no longer can pretend they know the standard…years of mis-management that we pay for, cash. A Barbet should MOVE, Cover ground and show power and strength. They are not city window shopping dogs..
I enjoy showing adult dogs of the Vieux Barbet type. Deetha is a daughter of Ulysse di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco ( U- litter of pure bred Barbets) and Nancy Sinatra from my 2017 litter. A 5th generation litter which is very rare in the Barbet world… and will become rare-r. Sadly so.
GuyGuy’s last brother went to Barbet heaven yesterday. He is now the last one I am blessed with. He is my 2nd French Champion. He has done a lot for the breed and produced also several champions. He has a divine nose and can flare a duck a hundred meters away!
