Jättiläisen Lappland V Saxony A2/A2 ED00 CGC (Reno) 18/12/05 - 28/01/14
Sire : BISS Am Ch Dreamspinners Cash n Carry (Cash) Dam : Fin, Est, Lt, Ltu, Rus, Balt, Swe Ch Jättiläisen Gladiolus (Siiri) Bred by : Kati Nieminen, Jättiläisen Great Danes, Finland   Reno was a dream come true. I had long admired his sire and grandsire Am Ch BMW Architect of Jericho and could not believe that I would have such a special dog - my eternal thanks to Kati & Piia for the opportunity to own such an incredible dog. Thank you for your trust and kindness. It will never be forgotten. Reno slotted in beautifully and was a wonderfully confident and attentive dog. The change in environment from Europe in winter to Africa in summer was considerable, but nobody told Reno! He took to everything with no problems and has amazed me with his adaptability and relaxed attitude. He was a very friendly chap and his obedience was exemplary. People often commented on his good manners and attentiveness. After each show I allowed Reno to run off lead and his recall was amazing despite all the distractions. He often came back to me so fast that I had to jump out of the way. Reno only ever sired one litter (Saxont H Litter), which only comprised one puppy. Reno was used on a number of bitches and testing revealed an unforeseen fertility issue. Fortunately, the one pup Reno sired was a magnificent harlequin male, Saxony Hi Lan Der (Mac). We also have a Reno granddaughter, Shorty, and also have frozen semen from Reno’s son, Mac, so Reno’s many attributes are still available. Reno was the first mantle to be shown in South Africa and was thus shown sparingly. He notched up some nice wins, including: Res. Best of Breed & CACIB - M Duarte (Brazil) Res. Challenge Certificate - S Carter (RSA) Res. Challenge Certificate - K Humphries (UK) - Dane Specialist.   This sweet dear boy is very missed and we thank Marinda and Herman who played an important role in Reno’s later years.
