Upstanding and good-size with balanced angles, deep in chest. Strong in hindquarters with good turn of stifle and strong 2nd thigh. Lovely head with the chiselling under the eyes creating a gentlemanly and kindly expression.

Fantango First Knight (Monty) has been shown regularly since he was a puppy & he is now 7 years old. Monty has excelled in the show ring, enjoys obedience training & agility training.

We have now decided to show Monty only at selected & specialty shows.

Sometime ago, Monty was attacked by a Rhodesian Ridgeback. Not only did he defend himself, he also stood & defended me during the attack. Monty is my hero.
