Sovereign Park Minerva (Elli)

Sovereign Park Minerva (Elli) came to us from Sovereign Park in Ballarat Victoria. She was born on the 31st of December 2005.

 Sovereign Park Minerva (Elli)
Elli has a plush white coat, her coat is 99% brilliant white, but she has a tinge of fawn on the tips of her ears and tail. Unfortunately Elli does have lighter eyes and pale pigment on her nose (possibly snow nose).

Litters

Elli is the mother of our A, C and D Litter.

The A Litter was completed via AI and produced 6 pups. The Sire was Tumbledown’s Super Sonic.

The C Litter was a natural mating and produced 9 pups. The Sire was Kyanjuwa White Kayne.

The D Litter was a natural mating and produced 10 pups.  The Sire was Fanuilos Hey Ladies.

After these 3 litters, Sovereign Park Minerva has been retired from breeding.  We will continue to show her at the occasional WSSDCA show and she will continue to live with us and our family.
