Hele is sister to Aslan and Tasha, all three are from our long drive to the Tri City Gdynia in Northern Poland on the Baltic coast. We will always be grateful to Christina & Bronek for this super opportunity, our Pole kids are just wonderful in every way.
Hele is so much like her Brother in her demeanour, laid back and chilled, friends with everyone and also like her Mum Siska, in that she is high maintenance for attention.
Hele has been shown lightly and has always done well in the ring being placed in the top three and has been to Crufts where she gained a second place in a strong class. She is rather lazy and was losing out on 1st place due to not lifting up her head while on the run.
We had a first litter with Hele & Neo in December 2016 producing 17 puppies. The biggest litter in the UK to date.
Her second litter in April 2018 was a little smaller at only 11 puppies! We took one of them to her new home in Cornwall where Hele also met her son from her first litter. Although not in the best coat condition, she thoroughly enjoyed her well deserved holiday and we enjoyed some quality time with her as well. She went on to have two more holidays in 2018 where she and her Sister Tasha enjoyed all the attention in the bars that we went to. Good as gold and a pleasure to be with.
Hele is now retired from breeding and although she has all the qualities for the show ring, she is just too lazy and couldn't be bothered with all that fuss. She is happy for the youngsters to go and have a good day out while she rests at home with a nice big juicy bone. If Hele could get in to our skin, she would, she is so loving and tender to the point of annoyance. She has enjoyed good health for all her life and now in her 8th year, she has slowed down somewhat, as Leonbergers do at this age. She still enjoys a little holiday and a nice stroll on the beach in summer. Hele is now a Grandma to Nikita's eight pups born in June 2019 & Holly's pups November 2019.
Reaching 8 years old in March 2020, she is still in great health and doing well despite her LPN1 status of D/N, sister Tasha just the same. We are so lucky to still have 3 pups from the same litter alive at this age.
