DO IT FOR ME MMJ VON PORTENSCHLAG “TANGO”

This beautiful white male is from Argentina and therefore we call him TANGO. He was born April 20, 2009. I fell in love with this boy when I was judging in Argentina in the spring of 2009 so I took him back with me to introduce new bloodlines in our whites. TANGO never stops wagging his tail, he is so positive. Most counties have to leave tail and ears uncropped. Here in the USA we crop all tails but if you prefer uncropped ears just let us know.

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.

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.
