2000 I became interested in the JS and started to do research on-line. Became
acquainted with JS fanciers across the world via the Internet. I put off for
about a year having one. I encountered my first spitz here in California and I
fell in love. This is how Magic came to live with my family. I expanded my
lines during a backpacking trip to New Zealand. I had the opportunity to meet
with the women who run the Beyond Kennel. I have since imported three dogs from
New Zealand, Teka from Beyond and Masako and Deeva from the Mondial lines (they
are litter sisters).
attracted to the breed do to their mellow nature, playfulness, soft fur and
wonderful personality. They are wonderful around all people, children, other
animals, good watch dogs. They smile and are so much fun. They are a lot like
cats, independent, but love to be cuddled. Mine even sit on the back of the
couch and look out the window.
main reason I enjoy this breed so much is for the benefits they give to myself
and others. I am a therapist by trade and I have started the process of
training the dogs towards pet therapy. Teka was certified in 12/06 through ADI
(Asst Dog Institute, in Santa Rosa, Ca). He can now come to work with me in a
hospital setting. He has done wonders for patients, staff and doctors. The
unconditional love of animals makes a big difference in the work setting.
