born 14 December, 2008
Sire:  Can.Ch.Glor Na Gael Iosac                                               Dam:  Aotearoa Suro Nocciolina

This handsome young fellow started his show career with a Best Puppy in Group first time out at 6 months. He also won his first 5 Championship points over adults from the Junior Puppy Class, and First in the Hound Group at an All Breed Puppy Sweepstakes at 9 months. 

His Specialty wins in 2009 include  1st  6-9 Puppy Dogs IWANE Specialty 2009  under judge Lois Sanford,  2nd in regular class under breeder/judge Tony Redmond, "Athcarne" Ireland, and Best Of Opposite Sex in Sweepstakes, IWAGS Specialty 2009 under Breeder/judge Christy Call, "Rathkeale" USA
(pictured above at 10 months).

Heke's dam Nocciolina is a litter sister to Salt's dam Keely, and his sire has a fascinating International pedigree which I hope will bring a harmonious 50% outcross for the AOTEAROA Irish Wolfhounds in future generations. Heke is already the sire of 2 fine litters, and his third litter is due 9 April 2011 from Sibyl, Can.Ch. Aotearoa Whakamaru.
