Yondu was produced by Trails Ends Miniature American Shepherds, Oregon, USA. We welcomed Yondu at 4 months of age when, at the time, we lived in Wales, United Kingdom.
Yondu really is built like an Australian Shepherd in a smaller package. He has a stocky Aussie build, with good coat and bone, and excellent reach and drive. He has a masculine head and moderate build.
Yondu is a red tricolor with very minimal white. He has one copy of solid / bicolor on the A-locus, so will produce puppies without tan points depending on the bitch he is put to. He generally produces puppies with little / moderate white.
He has an amazing structure and even better temperament for which he is well know! Yondu is extremely bright, driven and focused. He works perfect around livestock and is easygoing in all environments. He gets on superbly with all other dogs and people. He has an excellent off-switch and settles perfectly out and about, as well as at home.
Yondu achieved Best of Breed in Paris, France, at 10 months of age, and is now an International Conformation Champion.
He attended Crufts in 2018 and 2019 as part of the Kennel Club’s Puppy, Bronze and Silver display teams. He was also invited to audition for Britain’s Got Talent as a double-act with Marvel.
For performance sports, Yondu excels at trick training and performed with Vet’s Kitchen at shows in the UK. He became the first MAS in the UK (jointly with sister Legacy) to gain a Dog Parkour title. He excels at rally and was invited to the AKC Rally Invitationals in 2020. He competes in FastCat, obedience, and agility. He enjoys kayaking and his European puppies both show in conformation and do agility.
