As important as it is to us at Elante to breed outstanding, correct Bedlingtons that excel in the show ring, we are equally proud of the dogs we have placed in companion homes. Many have went on to become Canine Good Citizen certified, attend obedience class, and perform therapy work in addition to being much loved members of their families.
We pride ourselves on placing healthy, well socialized puppies into approved homes.
Below are some of the puppies we have placed:
Zero taking a well-deserved nap after study time
Zero was a littermate to Tori and Trevor and resided in NM. His owner says he's an A+ student at his school in addition to being the best buddy in the world. Unfortunately, Zero went to the Rainbow Bridge in early 2017.
Lucy enjoying her first birthday with a special cake
Lucy resides in Iowa where she has attended obedience class, and obtained her Canine Good Citizen certification. Her mom is a dog trainer, so Lucy's always got to be on her best behavior!
Ch. Elante Easter Lilli - "Lilli"
Lilli - a.k.a. "the Princess" had a great show career, finishing with two 5-point majors en route to finishing her Championship. However, she decided she truly did want to be the princess of the house, and only wanted to live with "the boys."
A terriffic home was found for her where she has two new brothers to run circles around in addition to getting to ride in the firetruck with her dad. (Who says firehouse dogs have to be Dalmations?) She's also quite adept at killing gophers in her parents yard.
