Sebastian is as gentle as he is glorious!
Yes he is a show dog, but first & foremost,
he is our loveable family member!
He enjoys the good life here at the ranch,
so he is not out on the dog show circuit
but maybe once a month (sorry we just love
too much & need to see his sweet face)!
Sebastian is our number 1 lap top! Yep, he
may be about 125 lbs, but he loves snuggling
or trying to snuggle with his dad (on his lap).
His outstanding features, gee, let's see:
- headpiece (long & narrow & beautiful);
- structure (balanced front & rear);
- movement (cleanest moving bloodhound);
- type (ears, lip, wrinkles, skin, etc);
- size (appropriate - he could do his job!)
Sebastian was bred by Judy-Jeff Walker, of
Houndwalker Bloodhounds, and Susan Hamil
of Quiet Creek Bloodhounds.
He is a Moonie grandson (a top winning
best in show bloodhound); & his 1/2 sister, Kiss
has been the #1 bloodhound for several years.
Sebastian ranked his 1st year showing as a
Top 20 Bloodhound (as a puppy); and he
also earned an invitation to Eukanuba.
Sebastian finished 2012 as the #9 Bloodhound
all breed (Canine Chronicle Stats), and he
only did 9 weekends of showing!!!
So what will 2013 bring??? Currently he is
ranked (Jan 2013 - Canine Chronicle)
#13 in breed & #14 in all breed.
But clearly Sebastian is the #1 Bloodhound
both at the ranch and in our hearts!!!
Sebastian is primarily shown by professional
handler Clint Livingston, and at times by
by professional handler Diana Wilson.
