Madeleine @ Hotwyr SDCh - Maddy

Mad Maddy

Maddy in the yard Timaru Summer 08

Maddy came to us from the SPCA - a rehome who we love dearly and who has taken to sled dog racing with ease. We have no idea of her lineage and it doesn't matter - she is a great pet and companion and very special friend to all our dogs - siberian, aussie and GWP.

RIP Maddy 05/02/13 run free sweet girl xoxo

Hotwyr Without a Trace QC - Liesel



Liesel was owned by Helen and Dickie Sansome from Te Kauwhata, Waikato.

She scored the highest score at the VHDTA (24/12/07)
Track Duck - 4, Retrieve Water - 3, Blind Retrieve - 4, Track Hidden Bird - 2, Search - 4, Point - 4, Nose - 4, Attitude - 4, Co-operation - 4, Obedience - 4, Temperament √ - Prize: 2
13/02/10 - Liesel attains her QC title

Feb 2012 - Helen makes the hard decision to let Liesel go due to difficulties with her attitude to other dogs.
Both Liesel and Luger were from a litter that was hand raised from 2 days old - something we believe had a significant impact on the litters development. We had done this mating before and had no issues with attitude so can only attribute this to the lack of a dam in these pups early lives.
Our thoughts are with Helen & Dickie at this time......

Hotwyr Criminal Intent - Luger


Feb 2009 - sadly due to extenuating circumstances Luger has had to be put to sleep. We are ever grateful to Jill for everything she has done for and with Luger. Our thoughts are with her at this very sad time.....Run free sweet boy...

Hotwyr Time and Again - Jazz


Sadly taken from us 14/04/10 aged 18months. Loved and missed greatly by T & Neen and all of us (human & canine) at Hotwyr...... Rest in Peace sweet angel..........

NZCh Kimmax Kontessa SDCh (imp UK) - Harriet


Harriet (right lead) & Wyatt with Tana in wheel

"Harriet" came to us from Maxine & Peter McCullough in the UK. She is a fabulous strong bitch with a really biddable nature. She has produced very nice typey puppies who are doing well in hunting, trialling, racing and show homes.
"Harriet" was easily titled but was never that fond of the show ring, she would much rather be hanging around us all day and generally being the house dog. We absolutely adore her and are grateful to Maxine and Peter for sending her here to NZ.

RIP sweet girl xxx 04/09/2013
