More Show Dogs - Jax and Joker's Story
In 2006 we imported Eng. Ch. Saredon Wheels on Fire (Patsy) who was bred by Judy Averis. After finishing her American Championship she left us beautiful pups sired by the top winning American Airedale of all time - Ch. Evermay's High Performance.
Patsy's son "Joker" - Eng. & Am. Ch. Longvue Joker at Saredon - won his American Championship with 5 majors finishing at 16 months. He went to England in 2009 and quickly became an English Champion. He finished his year in England with 11 CC's and a tie as top Airedale in England. In 2010, he returned to Longvue.
Joker's brother, Eng. & Am. Ch. Longvue Jackpot ("Jax"), finished his championship with 5 majors including two Best of Winners awards on the Montgomery weekend. He sired multiple speciality winning pups and then in July of 2010, Jax went to England. He became an English Ch. in his first 3 shows going on to become the top Airedale (tie) in England for 2010 in less than 6 months of being exhibited. AS a special thrill, in March, 2011, Jax was awarded Best of Breed and Group II at Crufts! John handled him in the Breed Ring and Todd handled him in the Group. Jax returned to Longvue in 2014 and at 8 1/2 years old he won Best of Opposite Sex from the Veteran Class at the National Specialty at MCKC. Updated 11/14/17 At 11.5 years of age, Jax retired the lovely Bob LaRouche trophy for being awarded Best Male Airedale Veteran at the National Specialty three times.
Thanks to our good friends - Judy, John and David at Saredon Kennels - for sponsoring and exhibiting Joker and Jax in England.
