Asha is one of the newer members of the Recherche family. She is from one of the world’s best breeders in the Netherlands and we are thrilled to have her with us. Asha (pronounced “osh’u”) is an almost perfectly behaved girl. She never gets into trouble! She’s not a barker. She’s not a digger. She’s not a chewer. She’s a lover!
She is constantly eager to be with us and follows us around everywhere, from room to room. She’s exceptionally beautiful with one of the best heads and coats we have seen for a female.
She blew the judges away at the 2013 International IABCA dog show where she was Best of all Females and earned her International Championship. Breeders and judges were in awe of such a well-behaved and perfectly put together English Cream Golden Retriever.
Asha has her final BVA hip and elbow score (BVA 4:4) This is equivalent to an OFA “Excellent” hip rating (average Golden has a score of 9:9!). She is in the top 4% of all Golden Retrievers tested which is amazing. Her elbows were normal by BVA standards. She also has been examined at Carolina Tech’s Regional College of Veterinarian Medicine by an ophthalmologist and a veterinarian and has been cleared with OFA for her heart and eyes.
Asha has been DNA Profiled by the AKC and is dual registered with the Netherland Kennel Club and the AKC.
We are grateful to Ans van Leeuwen for entrusting us with this gorgeous girl. We searched for a female for a couple of years with this incredible pedigree. We’ve always been a HUGE fan of Ashbury Angel Heart and his son Ashbury Deep Impact. They are such incredible boys.
A thorough review of Asha’s pedigree reveals 2 World Champions, several International Champions & European Champions in her line. She also has several Dutch, Swedish, Luxembourgian, French, Spanish, Norwegian, German, & Belgian champions in her close pedigree!
