Bred by Susan Healy - Gingerwood Welsh Springers
Baxter was a very special boy. He finished his Championship easily and earned some group placements in his younger days. His best moment in the show ring was when he beat Gator in the Veteran Sweepstakes class in Georgia. We can still see the smiles on his and everyone's faces from that day.
He has accomplished more for us by producing over 20 champions, many with advanced obedience, agility and hunting titles. I think we are most proud of his TWO Champion/Obedience/Master Hunter titled daughters and his HIT/CH son, who was also the first Welsh to earn his RAE title.
Baxter was a great ambassador for us and for the breed, as he never met a stranger. He always greeted everyone one he met with a wag and a smile. When we bred Rindi earlier this year, we used Baxter's frozen semen. We are very excited about having Roni youngsters around again.
