Sire: Supreme Ch Peperone New Sensation
Dam: Supreme Ch Ridgesetter Etain

Coco came to us on terms that her breeders could have a litter from her. When the time came, it was discovered that she had a stricture which would prevent a natural mating. Wishing to honour our obligation, Coco returned to her breeders for the agreed litter and was mated via AI. Unfortunately the mating did not take. Her next season clashed with the National and a litter of pups was out of the question timewise for her breeders.

On the next season she was once again offered and we asked her breeder if she actually wanted to breed with her. We were told that her husband did not want her keep any more dogs, as they had enough dogs and did not want to breed Coco.

Some dogs arent meant to have puppies and to put Coco thru a litter with an AI to mate and then a caesarian birth, was not what we personally wished to do. However, we felt we had to honour our obligation to her breeders and offer her to them. Following the breeder’s advice that they no longer wished to have Coco for a litter, the decision was made to desex Coco and she now lives a life of luxury with her new family and their whippet rescue, Timor. That is just what she deserved !!
