Hanne has been bred to BISS GCH AGCH MACH14 ADCH Matador MG Lone Star MXB4 PDS MJS4 PJS MFC TQX T2B5 TKI TM – “Roubaix”. Roubaix is a group and specialty winner…and an agility phenomenon. The titles listed above are likely to change before I’ve finished typing this post. His dam is my 2006 NBC 13″ BOW/BBE CH Talbot Hill’s Razzle Dazzle and his grandsire won the National Specialty the same year, BISS CH Bayou Oaks Longhorn Trouble.
This breeding should be interesting both for those interested in performance events and in conformation. Hanne and Roubaix share a similar drive, energy, and intelligence and if they pass these qualities along to their puppies, we’ll have some future agility stars in the making. For those interested in conformation, this breeding is very similar to a breeding that I did twelve years ago between Herbie (Hanne’s sire) and Velma (Roubaix’s dam); a linebreeding on BISS CH Daragoj Matter of Time. That breeding produced a very consistent litter of puppies, two of which finished quickly with four 4-point majors over specials. Another puppy from the litter, Talbot Hill Lemon Thyme, went to Mexico where he made a significant contribution to the breeding program at MG Beagles and sired 2015 Mexican National Specialty winner CH MG Carlos Gardel. CH MG Carlos Gardel, in turn, sired the 2016 Mexican National Specialty winner and 2016 NBC 15″ RWB, MG Lisboa. Lisboa, is the dam of our own CH Bayou Oaks First You Make A Roux (sired by Trey).
Returning to the performance potential of the litter, I’d like to add that the second litter by Roubaix’s dam, CH Talbot Hill Razzle Dazzle, “Velma”, was sired by BIS CH Bayou Oaks English Leather, and co-bred with Alyce Gilmore (Bayou Oaks). That litter produced another agility giant: AGCH MACH25 Bayou Oaks Talbot Hill La Baffi MXC6 PDS MJB& PJS MFB2 TQX T2B8, “Daisy”. Daisy retired at the end of 2019 after one of the most accomplished agility careers of all-time. I am currently expecting a second litter in April 2020, sired by BIS CH Bayou Oaks English Leather out of CH Bayou Oaks First You Make A Roux. Link.
Whether you’re looking for a show/breeding prospect, a performance dog, or a great family pet, keep an eye on my web site or the Talbot Hill Beagles Facebook group for future announcements about the litter. Hanne is due in late April; puppies will be ready for their new homes this summer.
