Kensix Shleshee From Blackforest

May 29, 1986 - July 24, 2002

Breeder: Mrs Ruth Corner (UK)
Owner: Mary MacPhail (UK)
Sire: Shimshon Me Shaar Hagai; Dam: Rotem Me Shaar Hagai


Born in quarantine 29th May 1986, “Brand” was a stalwart fixture in Mary's life for 16 years. He was an intelligent, loyal and devoted companion who, in his younger days, was a registered PAT dog, passed The Kennel Club Good Citizen Test, The Canaan Dog Club character assessment and a herding instinct test.

In the show ring “Brand” lived in the shadow of his more well-known brother, “Fiver” (Kensix Khameshee). Though he was every bit as good a Canaan in type, character and soundness as "Fiver", Mary only showed him lightly. Mary had his hips scored (7:8), eyes certificated normal and even had his heart tested (murmur free). Unfortunately “Brand” was never to sire a litter and there was just no one breeding at the time he should have been used. By the time someone was interested in using him, he had already been castrated. However, "Brand" will continue to live on in the memories of all who knew him.
