“Savannah” is another one of my sweet girls, very much like her cousin, Paris. She loves to put her arms up around my neck and snuggle in for long cuddles, except that she doesn’t realise how big she has grown.
Savannah’s debut to the show ring was very pleasing, winning the Puppy bitch class/Opposite Puppy in Show at both Dobermann Open and championship shows on November 1st. Her brother Jag beating her for Puppy in Show.
Savannah’s first show since shown at the DCV specialty a year ago and she takes out the ultimate Best in Show under international judge Mrs Hilary Partridge-Duckham (UK).
She has had to wait in line whilst Kendra accumulated points toward her grand championship title but we made an exception for the specialty and so glad we did.
- Savannah has won 1st place in the intermediate bitch class at ALL shows, bar one, (3—5 entrants), and been awarded reserve challenge bitch at almost every show until attaining her first all breed challenge points on the 27th December. Her brother Jag beating her for best of breed on this occasion.
- 28th December: Best of Breed
Dobermann National held in Sydney over Easter 2010 saw Savannah win 1st place in the A/Bred Bitch class and at the Host Show on the same weekend 1st again in A/bred Bitch and Reserve Challenge bitch
- 24th April: Savannah wins her second Best in show at the S.A. Specialty under Mr R. Velez-Pico from Peurto Rico, this also gave her her champion title. First points gained with BISS Melbourne and finishing with BISS Adelaide, surely something of a record.
- 29th May, 2010: Passes her Endurance test with Ease
Following are some of Savannah’s major wins for the remainder of 2010:
- Challenge bitch & RUBOB Melbourne Royal

Out of the top drawer, beautiful head with long clean muzzle: arched neck flowing into super topline. Good shoulder and sound front. Positive movement and shown to perfection.
1st Intermediate bitch class, challenge bitch & Best in Show
Critique by Mrs Judith Brown (USA) DCNSW Host Show
First place in this class is a black bitch. Parallel head planes, slight stop, depth of muzzle. Very nice in front. She has fill in the front and very nice transition from neck to withers. She has bone in proportion to her size. Her tailset is in exactly the right place and her underline is very tight and clean.
Reserve Challenge bitch
