Iva Kimmelman was so impressed by Sav when she saw him at The 1st Australian Whippet National in 2004 that she wished to purchase him. We were reluctant to part with him, however after much negotiation we agreed to allow Iva to lease him for a period of twelve months. Iva felt he had so much to offer the breed in the U.S.A that was lacking, namely his amazing temperament, his wonderful front assembly, particularly his return of upper arm and of course his stunning movement.
Shown only 7 times in the U.S.A., shortly after his arrival, he was quickly made up, achieving Winners Dog 6 times, and Reserve Winners Dog at his debut.
He was # 1 Stud Dog in 2008 & # 3 in 2009 siring ten litters.
Iva reports, “Sav is prepotent for passing on his perfect front assembly, amazing temperament, and movement to his children.”
He returned home to Australia mid 2006. He continues to sire top winning progeny to the present day.
