Penny is the ONLY Kuvasz dam in history to have produced Multiple BEST in SHOW WINNERS.  She’s also the only producer of Multiple offspring to place at Westminster!!! 

A superb example of what a big, healthy Kuvasz, sound in mind & body, can achieve, and her winning ways have been passed on to exceptional offspring!  Just the 9th Kuvasz dam to ever earn the prestigious HALL of FAME award which honors her extraordinary contributions to the breed as a producer.  Penny is the breed’s only dam of Multiple Best in Show Winners.  She is also the breed’s only dam of Multiple Agility Title Holders.  And she is the dam of Multiple Champions, Multiple Obedience Title Holders, Multiple Rally Title Holders & Multiple Therapy Dogs.

During her sparse career as a Special, Penny amassed 137 Bests of Breed, 5 Group Wins, and an additional 36 Group Placements.  Upon returning to the ring after taking time off to have her 2005 litter, Penny won the 2006 KCA National Specialty Show, and her 7 month old daughter (Angel) went Winners Bitch, Best of Winners, and Best Bred by Exhibitor.  In 2006, Penny earned the #1 Ranking for the year in Breed while her daughter, Angel, earned the #1 Ranking in All Breed…A Kuvasz First & Only!  They were also the only Multiple Group Winners for the breed that year.  Penny is a super-affectionate & playful gal that everyone enjoys being around…her zest is contagious!  We love her dearly, and are so appreciative of all she’s given – unparalled contributions to the breed through her own accomplishments and those of her offspring.  Penny earned her most recent title (BN) at 10 years & 10 months of age!
