Sire of Current Top Silky Terrier in Ireland 2010

Paavo & Kelly both celebrated their birthdays on 30th June 2010. Paavo has enjoyed a nice break from the ring, and at 8 years old will make an appearance in some Veteran Stakes later this year.

Paavo brought Silkies to the fore in Ireland throughout 2008 and 2009. The Terrier group is one of the hardest groups to break through, as the standard of Terrier breeds in Ireland is World Class. Paavo proved he could hold his own and accumulated a total of 3 Group Wins & 7 placings under Top Terrier Specialists & All Rounders from Ireland & Abroad.

Many thanks to all judges who recognised Paavo's qualities and awarded him Top Honours against stiff competition, and to all the Terrier exhibitors who have shown their support.


8 years old 


Group 3 and BIS 4 - September, 08

"Paavo arrived in Ireland following the World Show in July '08 where he won the Open Male Class under Breed Specialist Mr. Michael Camac from Australia.  He very quickly gained his Irish Title and was Top Silky Male in Ireland 2008 and Runner-Up Top Silky in Finland 2008 based on his wins there before coming to Ireland.  Thank you Tina and Pia of  Curiosity Kennel for letting him come to us"
