Achievements from Pups and Dogs we have bred...
KRUZE - CH Takoda Class Act (Gpsy/Schaefer)
Yet another Takoda Champion shown to perfection to his NZ Champ title by Sian Vermeer in the South Island.
Here are some of his showring achievements to date...
KRUZE - BEST JUNIOR IN SHOW
Southern Cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier Society
Judge - Duncan McAllister: Critique...
1st. Brindle male, strong head, would like a little more stop and slightly shorter muzzle. Well developed cheeks, rose ear, powerful neck on straight legs into tight feet. Good spring of rib carried well back into moderately short loin. Tail set and carried well. Short hock. Would like more strength in rear but he is only a junior. Balanced overall and moved out freely.

Here is the Judges Critique
Judge Mr Joe Nagel (Capstone Kennels, South Africa)
1st The Frog Prince of Takoda / Black brindle. Has everything required at this stage, promising head, good eye and ears. Balanced and moved well for his age.
Judge Mr Thomas M Heir (Moindearq Kennels, Eire)
1. THE FROG PRINCE OF TAKODA: 4 month old – very much a baby at this stage, compact and balanced, very good head shape, good ears and set, distinct stop, dark eye, small baby teeth, good top line, movement ok.
Frog has now gone to live with his cousins Snip and Duke in Christchurch with Sharyn and Mike Wasley-Hill. He will thrive in the family atmosphere and no doubt keep the whole family on their toes with his hilarious antics.
