Everything a breeder aims for has been realized in this beautiful boy!!!  His health clearances, lovely temperament, and soundness in structure & movement are every bit as important to us as his outstanding conformation to the AKC breed standard.  We could not be happier with the results.  We are so proud to have co-bred this exquisite Kuvasz with Szumeria, and we’ve been awed to watch him soar to the TOP!  The many judges and Kuvaszers who have recognized Tanner’s exceptional quality are immensely appreciated.  Our deepest gratitude goes to Diana Wilson & Lynn Brady for so beautifully presenting Tanner for all his wins.  Special thanks & congratulations to Tanner’s owners.
