Xaphire Zinnia of Thunderfeet at Demoneira (IMP USA)
April 2017 saw us import a seppala line Siberian Husky puppy bitch from the United States from the Thunderfeet Seppala Kennel. Zinny's parents and relatives have successfully taken part in many mid distance events in the United States, and have an excellent health history with clear eye tests and good hips, Zinny comes from a strong line of leaders and we are delighted with our family and team member from Patricia and Ted Nelson.
Following the Royal Navy name theme Zinnia is named for HMS Zinnia, a flower class corvette that protected the convoys in the Battle of the Atlantic during WW2. We are looking forward to lots of adventures on and off trail with this lovely girl!
Zinny has really impressed us with her drive in harness placing top five in the two dog with Mars at her first race with the British Siberian Husky Racing Association and at her first show in November 2017 won best puppy in breed at the Scottish Working Pastoral breeds show under breed specialist Sheila Luxmoore (Zima/Amiz) in a quality puppy class. Zinny then went on to win Best Puppy in breed again at the Scottish Kennel Club's Open Show under Breed Specialist Sherrie Unwin (Snowtrekka).
2018 Zinny placed joint fifth in the Scottish Siberian Husky Club Top Puppy Awards with limited showing and 2018/2019 season she ran lead in Matt's three dog team to a top ten placing in the BSHRA Championship and consistently placed top three with other race orgs. 2019 Zinny has achieved her AMWA copper working title and silver working title.
Zinny's eyes have tested clear twice under head BVA Panelist Ian Mason and hip score is 4/4.
