Ch. Gnal Little Big Man O'BJ
"Manny" was owner handled to three 5 point Best Of Breed wins over top ranked specials from the puppy class. He was then polished and properly trained by handler Fran Keyes of Nanhall fame.
Manny racked up Group Wins and ratings and the future looks very bright for this incredibly sound little dog. His virtues:
Not too extreme, not too hairy, not too long, not hackney, and definitely not roached.
Manny is now in Japan and smart little guy that he is, mastered the language quickly!
