We collected handsome Shadow, then a six month old youngster, from Kennel Necku in Finland in May 2014.
Although more exuberant than Lahja (he is still a teenager!) he is another Black & Tan Coonhound with a confident, laid back and gentle temperament. Exactly what you would want in the breed.
Having a totally distinct pedigree from Lahja we were hoping Shadow would be our foundation dog as we need to have a wide pedigree base when applying for Kennel Club breed recognition. Unfortunately when Shadow had his hips X-rayed in January 2015 he was found to have one dysplastic hip.
With Hip Dysplasia being Polygenic i.e. some hereditary factors, we have made the decision not to use Shadow at stud. Shadow has now been neutered.
Shadow will still be a fantastic ambassador for the breed in The UK.
