Astro de Aradik - Our pick of litter. At 5 months of age, he went to be the happy pet of a family in Lisbon, and a successful show dog. He is the first Barbado out of our breeding to become a Portuguese champion. We are keeping a close eye on him, and we hope he will become a successful stud.

Ananás de Aradik - Our second pick of litter, at 3.5 months of age, he went to his new home, Unfortunately, there were some adjustment issues between him and the other dogs in the house, so he came back home. We can't complain ;), especially because we no longer had Astro.
