Shojin's Somewhere In Time (Dude)
(Am/Can/Mex Ch. MacAlder Best for Shojin x Shojin's Sky Hawk)


Here, at Amethyst, we are proud to welcome a new member to the "yard."  Shojin's Somewhere In Time (Dude) joins us.  Thanks to Ron and Dee Vayda for making this possible.

Dude fits right in here at our place and his legacy is one that we will not soon forget.  Dude is a half-brother to our very first Gordon Setter, "Spice" as well as a half-brother to our "Trouble" who we lost in March of 2001.  Dude is out of Am/Can/Mex Ch. MacAlder Best For Shojin "Chipper" who was the #1 Gordon Setter in 1983.  We look for classic head type, movement and above all, personality!

Welcome to Amethyst, Dude.  We love you already!!
