Malinois Puppies! ... Chilli meets Krash

Chilli’s rendezvous this weekend meant that her chosen mate, Krash (pictured above), had to stay with us for a few days. Krash is a happy boy, outgoing and very affectionate, he greets strangers with a hug and is very well mannered, a pleasure to have around. It’s been nice to spend time with another Malinois and we are grateful to his owners, Lyn & Greg Baile (Kiatasee Kennels), for trusting us with him.

“Krash”, otherwise known as Vanrusselhof Krash, was bred by Amanda Russell at Vanrusselhof Malinois Kennels in Queensland. His father is the famous AUST/DKBR/DK Ch Bryan Vom Haus Mecki IPO3 SchH3 Imp NWY “Bryan” and mother is “Enca” (Vanrusselhof Enca), both of whom I met when I traveled to Queensland 2 years ago and spent some time with Enca at her home with Amanda. I’ve always admired Bryan and followed his many successes with interest. You can read more about both of them at the Vanrusselhof website.

Most of you know our “Chilli”, AUST Ch Vanrusselhof On Fire JD … a pretty, well conformed girl from Show Lines, also with a lovely temperament. This combination (Chilli x Krash) is a great opportunity to combine some of the best working bloodlines and attractive show lines, and we expect some nice puppies suitable for show, agility, obedience, tracking and family companions.

Now … we wait … for about 5 weeks and Chilli will have an ultrasound to confirm that she is pregnant.

All going well puppies will be due on 17th January 2009!
