Decicision to get Yona built up slowly and when I was following different breeding plans in Finland and also abroad, I saw very interesting combination at kennel Cahppes website. Both parents have Storm Kloud-lines in their pedigree and combination had many positive sides also thinking about possible future breeding. Yona's sire is BIS BISS AM/CAN CH. Sno Quest's King Of Landwood and dam SE CH Silent Ridge Bacardi-Breeze.
Yona is extremely energetic and happy, maybe even a "grazy girl", which tail don't stop wagging. Even when she was microchipped, her tail wag... Yona is brave and open, social, happy and she just LOVES all the people. She can be also stubborn when she wants to, but usually she is very humble towards people. Yona loves speed and she runs and actually flies just for her own fun.
Yona has proven to be very active, energetic and strong worker, who keeps our team speed up. Yona is mostly pair lead in our team, but she can also work in single lead.
Yona has good structure; beautiful head and neck, good coat, good topline, good angulations, proportions and strength of her body. Correct bite. She has middle strong bones. Yona is typical mover. Yona has been checked healthy by her eyes, hips and elbows. Yona has also been dna-tested for long coat gene and she is N/N, normal coated, not carrier.
