Chief is the sire of the two top specialty winning bitches in the history of the breed.

  Ch Helfyre Little Ponds Promise    55 BISS wins
Ch Cherokee Legend Donna         50 BISS wins


Chief; definition – Head Of the tribe or clan, the leader     

Chief was born on a bitterly cold winter’s night.  He was always a quiet puppy that was bullied about a great deal by his littermate sisters.  Therefore Dan decided this boy should be named Chief, so that possibly he would grow up and one day become a strong and brave leader.

And as they say; “the rest is history”.  A multiple BISS winner, 4 time Beckett award winner, 3 time Best stud dog winner at the BCA National Specialty shows, and sire of 149 champions to date.  Many of his get have also become BISS winners, Westminster BOB winners and also BCA hall of fame winners and reproducers.   He is the sire of the top two BISS winning bitches in the history of the breed, Ch Helfyre Little Ponds Promise (55 wins) and Ch Cherokee Legend Donna (50 wins).

Chief’s happiest times were spent either sitting on top of our picnic table calmly observing  the wild life in our woods, or basking in the sun along side his mother Splash in the center of my rose garden.  He grieved for weeks after Splash’s death and never again sat in the garden.

He had two favorite food groups, Famous Recipe fried chicken livers (after being introduced to those at a show by Rick Mouser), and Krispie Kreme donuts.  It was simply impossible to sneak donuts anywhere into the house without him finding out where they were.

He was always the kindest of gentlemen in every situation.  Chief was the sweetest and dearest dog I have ever known, and I miss him every single day.
