Whitney Thumb

Downtown Whitney Houston aka “Whittie”

(Multi Ch Mafioso Anstamm’s Shocker -  Ch Downtown Nessie)                        ----> pedigree
born 20.10.2002

I bought Whitney because the represented the first (and at that time only) opportunity to fulfill my long-standing wish to have a dog with Anstamm blood. Her sire is out of the two Anstamm imports Anstamm Aftershock and Anstamm Animation at the “Mafioso” kennel.

Even though the does not represent the Anstamm type completely (particularly her head) she turned out to be very succesful in the show ring. She won a significant number of champion titles - with limited showing. Her generally very lovely and relaxed temperament was not so helpful in the ring.

But as a big surprise, she changed her attitude completely as a veteran and starts to love shows! With great success: at her first appearance she becam BIS-3 Veteran at an International all-breed show and with just two more shows she finished two Veteran Champion titles (VDH & KfT)!

On the other hand, she proved her heritage in the whelping box. Particularly her daughter “News” looks very much Anstamm again, and so do the puppies from her second litter. In this way, she contributed a lot to make my dream come true.
