AMERICAN, CANADIAN & INTERNATIONAL GRAND CHAMPION SKANSEN’S GREAT GATSBY
Born: March 12, 2008 By: Am. & Int. Ch. Skansen’s American President & Skansen’s Destiny
This magnificent pepper/salt male with a superb structure, movement, beautiful color and good furnishings, and a great personality is to date, the top winning p/s giant male worldwide. Gatsby is the result of mixing black and p/s giants for five generations. The idea is to improve the health profile on the p/s as well as growing more profuse furnishings than the European style. Many years have gone into this but it is all worthwhile when the result is Gatsby. He has been shown in Canada by Janine Starink, winning 12 Best in Shows as well as the Canadian National 2011. He is the No. 1 Giant in Canada winning many group placings. We now have both p/s and black pups by Gatsby and they are excellent. Gatsby is turning out to be a superb stud dog with several champion offspring.
This Beautiful p/s, Son of grand Champion Skansen’S Great Gatsby, is only 11months in this photo. London has an excellent coat and color. he is a powerful dog with beautiful bone and substance. His temperament is calm and gentle and friendly with dogs and people. We think he is even better than his sire the top wining p/s male in the history of his breed with 12 all breed best in show
