Multi Best In Show, Multi Best In Specialty Show Grand Champion
Xoe Eleki’s Emerald City
OZ is the product of a long time plan…. Leanna Mottus had wanted to line breed on 2 of her top winning dogs. She and Elyse Fernets found the right girl and bred CH. Rose’s Million Dollar Baby (Hillary) the daughter of Canada’s all time top winning Pug MBIS, MBISS, MNBISS AM/CAN GCH. Xoe’s Oscar De La Hoya to her uncle – another of Canada’s top winning Pugs – MBISS,NBISS, BIS AM/CAN GCHex Xoe’s Cassius Clay, CGN.
This proved to be another fantastic litter. Oz started his show career at the Eukanuba National Championship dog show in Florida by winning Winners Dog for a 5 point major as a junior puppy. He went on to have a great puppy career and finished as #3 toy puppy behind his brother as well as placing in the top 5 Pugs for 2015 with limited showing. I brought Oz back to Ontario and after only 3 weekends of showing, Oz having just turned 2, won his first Best In Show at the Thousand Island Kennel & Obedience Club under Judge Mr. David Swartwood.
Oz was only shown on a very limited basis (6 weekends)as a young dog and has been major pointed in the US and finished 2016 at the large Trillium Dog Fanciers show in October. Oz finished out the year with Best of Breed and group placements at the all breed shows as well as going back to back Best In specialty shows at the Pug Club of Ontario Regional Specialty under judge Mr. Joe Walton and the Pug Club Of Canada Regional Specialty under judge Michael Canalizo.
Oz is a multiple Best In Show Winner, multiple Best in Specialty Show winner and multiple group winning and placing Pug. A top Pug as well as a top toy.
Oz had a hard act to follow as his father and uncle are 2 of the most well know Pugs in Canada and the breed as a whole. I was not sure I would find another dog with all the special qualities that Cassius and Oscar had to offer. Oz is so much a breeder’s Pug. He is what the Pug standard calls for “Multum in Parvo” meaning a lot in a little. From his correct size, short back and cobby, square body, to his beautiful head with soft expression and perfect diamond on the forehead. He has the very correct pug roll and proper movement which makes up exactly that, “A lot in a little.”
We plan on showing OZ in Canada and the US now that he just turned 3. He has a wonderful attitude and truly is a great show dog with outstanding type and movement.
I would like to thank all of the Judges who have awarded Oz so highly to date. I appreciate and thank all of the exhibitors, judges and fellow Pug breeders on their wonderful comments about this very special dog.
We are extremely proud to have Oz represent Xoe Pugs this show year.
