Shannas Journalist, ‘Jo’, was bred by us and taken to Italy when a puppy by Michele and Ludovica Ivaldi. Always impeccably presented, he started winning from a very early age.
He won many groups and best in show awards as well as a multitude of titles along the way. Some of the titles and awards he attained were:
- Italian Champion
- International Champion
- European Champion
- World Champion 1995, 1996, 1997
- Monaco Champion
- Puertorican Champion
- German Champion
- Producer Champion ENCI
- German Bundessieger
- Austrian Bundessieger
- Belgian Winner
- Copenhagen Vinder
- Austrian Jugend Bundessieger
- Junior Champion ENCI
Jo came to the UK for a visit to compete at the international Gordons2000 event organised by the Gordon Setter Association; we cannot describe how proud we are that he was awarded the Challenge Certificate and Best in Show.
He has also sired quality Gordon Setters, including Michele and Ludo’s Ita/Int/Monaco Ch/Sh Ch Caballus Ebonie Adonis Ludstar who was so successfully campaigned in the UK by Frances Boxall (with whom he lived when he became a permanent resident here) to hold the male breed CC record until recently overtaken. We are truly indebted to Michele and Ludo for loving, campaigning and giving him such a wonderful life! We are very proud of him.
