Afra has been tested for fawn/brindle recessive gene and is KbKb
and does not carry for fawn/brindle
Afra is my foundation female for my kennel. She arrived home from Hungary via Luxembourg just before Christmas 2005.
She was everything I was looking for in a female, her European substance and bone, beautiful headpiece, incredible physical presence and stamina, and most of all, her amazing temperment. As strong as she is physically, she is just a sweet little girl to be around.

""""Open Blue Female""""
1st. Haavisto's L&D Wagner Dog Afra, CGN
"A small but nicely balanced bitch with plenty of bone and she had substance throughout her body and of excellent colour.
She moved well enough and kept her shape pretty well.
When it came to the challenge she looked a little overdone in head and ear."
El Loco Sfinx Kennel, includes many national and international champions for many generations.
Afra's sire, El Loco Sfinx Azzurro, "Conte" was ranked #5 Dane in Hungary on their list for the Top 25 for 2002 (based on points accumulated from showing similar to the Canadian and American system),
Afra's dam, Blue Devil Capella ranked #13 for the same year.
Afra's sire was shown as a Veteran, and lived to 9 1/2 years.
