Yakindow Sonic Boom (ai)
"Sonic" is the first male stafford to be shown under the Yakindow prefix.
He is DNA Profiled, clear of L2Hga, HC and eye screened clear of all eye conditions inlcuding PHPV. He is available at stud to approved bitches.
Sonic was retired from the show ring in early 2022 due to sustaining a serious injury from an unfortunate accident - a devastating end to his show career which occurred as he was just reaching his prime.
Never take your dogs or the days you have with them for granted.
Show Results and Critiques
West of the Divide SBTC – 9th May 2021
Runner up Best in Speciality Show, Best Opposite Sex in Show, Best Open in Show, Dog Challenge
Judge Sandra Smid (QLD) “Blackshot”
“I was looking for a moderate dog throughout, with balance, agility and sufficient strength of muzzle & skull to do their job”.
Open Dog (11)
Very strong class.
1st: N Yates: Ch Yakindow Sonic Boom (AI) Black brindle 3.5 years. In his prime, presented in top condition. He is unexaggerated throughout and so well balanced. Strong clean muzzle, well chiselled skull, pronounced stop, correct eyes & fine ears used to advantage. Clean, well angulated front with sufficient forechest. Well ribbed up, strong loin, well angulated & muscled hindquarters. He moved well in all directions with power & an economy of effort.
“In the CC line up the Open Dog stood out and could not be denied”.
Best In Show: “Both CC winners were strong contenders and the dog dominated the ring with his personality and presence, but at the end of the day the bitch’s topline and rear angulation won the day.”
Thank you so much Sandra Smid
