Aust Ch. Amarcord Birichino

DOB.  22/12/00. - 1.9.09
He spent his dash well.

Breeder. Katrina Sommers Amarcord Maremmano Abruzzese
I would like to introduce the newest member of the pack at "Hillview". Chino as he is known here is a most wonderful baby boy! He shows all the great attributes of a maremma and is a great advertisement for both of his parents. He has a very stable temperment is a happy confidant outgoing lad and I can not thank Katrina enough for this beautiful boy. He is (I think) going to be every bit as wonderful as his parents, his breeder, and I could ever hope for. We may even show the youngster?
Well we did show the lad and on the 19.10.02 he achieved his title with a Best of Breed win over really nice competition. Chino will now take a break from the show ring for a little while but rest assured he will be back.
