STANDARD SMOOTH DACHSHUNDS – REBA

Page

On 1st January 2015, a very special puppy travelled with us back from Holland to the UK.

Reba (as far as we are aware) is the first dappled Standard Smooth in the country for a number of years.

Bred by Lammy Hamelink in Holland, she was exactly what we were looking for – a dappled smooth with good markings, good lines and of good type suitable for the UK show ring. Luckily, being bred from a British dam, she has the length and size that we were looking for.

Reba at only a few weeks old but already we could see how well-marked she was. Lammy named all the puppies after chocolate companies and we thought Reba’s name was very fitting given that she was to become a British citizen!

Lammy kept us updated with plenty pictures and we couldn’t wait to make the trip to Holland from Devon just after Christmas 2014.

Reba arrived home on 1st January 2015 at 15 weeks old. It was a long trip but every bit worth it. She settled in very quickly with the other dogs and started ringcraft mid-January.

At 7 months old, Reba attended her first championship show, WELKS, in April 2015 where she placed 4th of 7 under breed specialist Sue Ergis. A week later she placed 2nd in her class at the Northern Counties Dachshund Association championship show under breed club president Jeff Crawford, qualifying her for Crufts 2016.

At the end of summer 2015, Reba attended two championship shows – Richmond and Midland Dachshund Club – and won her classes.
