Leya was named from the famous Star Wars movie. She is an endearing dog who loves to play balls, but is equally up for a cuddle. In 2006 we brought Scarlett whom we mated to Fuge. Fuge was an outcross in pedigree and we mated her to him and had 5 puppies. We kept one of the puppies and named her Ginga. Ginga was mated to our own dog called Chilli, who was bred by Mr M Armstrong. Ginga then went onto have a litter and we kept Leya. Leya doesn’t take fools gladly, she is very much a dog who loves her owner most of all. She is a good guard and will announce anyone who comes to the door. She has lovely eye colour, her coat is russet gold. She is well made and fits the standard well. Leya was not trained for the show ring only because I can not afford to show them all. I am concentrating on my boys here and in Europe. Showing is extremely expensive hobby, but it is rewarding in the fact we get to see the best dogs in the UK and Europe. I think Leya just gets more beautiful with age, she is so elegant, and regal. She is just beautiful! Bias? Yes of course I am. She is quirky and likes things in a certain way, and she loves routine. Most of all her dinner! She is a good eater, and she eats a varied diet of raw foods. Plus she will have nature diet on occasion as well. As I've mentioned Leya loves her owners and she is not keen on strangers. This is because during her adolescence stages she had a bad experience. We had dog thieves who tried to bundle her into their van and escape with her. My husband fended off the thieves and Leya broke for freedom. She has since developed a very cautious view of strangers and to be honest I can't blame her. I would be the same. To us she is the most loving wonderful pet, but she will view you cautiously and for that I love her. Leya loves to play ball, she is so loyal that she runs back and sits at my feet, waiting for me to take the ball. So if a ball is ever lost, and I send in Leya I know it will come right back to me. Some dogs tend to drop balls on the way back, not Leya. I sometimes wonder if she understands I can not bend down, and some days when my fibromyalgia is having a bad flair, she seems to be attentive. She even lets me rest my hands on her to support myself. I do think these dogs have a wonderful way about them. I see more than ever now Scarlett in Leya's face. The older she gets the more like my foundation bitch she looks like. Scarlett wasnt just any dog, she was that dog in a million. To have a piece of Scarlett is just wonderful. I was given Scarlett by my dear friend Hilary Davis of Shelseivad Gundogs, and I bred her and kept Ginga. I still own Ginga and she is still shown. Then I kept a Ginga daughter which was Leya, so to continue those wonderful attributes that Scarlett gave us.
