Ch Daree's Simply Striking (imp USA) - Striker
Early in 2000,
I was approached by Gwen Mulheron of Daree's Miniature Schnauzers in
USA to see
whether Striker would be of use to us in our breeding program. As most of her
brood bitches were Striker daughters he was being "under-utilised" and she felt
that he had a lot to contribute to the breed here in
Australia. His pedigree
is rather illustrious, reading like a who's who of top winning American dogs.
He had been test bred to a blind bitch to ascertain his status as a carrier or
otherwise of Juvenile Cataracts. A litter of 5 puppies (all clear) resulted.
However Striker didn't think that was good enough and dashed out the door and
caught her the next time she came into season. A litter of 6 resulted. I guess
he liked to live up to his name :-) Once again all 6 puppies tested clear
giving him a status of 99.999% clear for Juvenile Cataracts. He was also DNA
tested clear for the disease Myotonia. He has 6
US champions to
his credit including the Top Winning Daree's Strike A Pose. We just have to add
to his tally here in Australia now. Striker
measured 13 3/4 inches and possessed an incredibly elegant neck, wonderful lay
of shoulder and powerful rear drive.
