“Chanel “

Our first Blue Female Great Dane is a beautiful bitch from the Dundesert Kennels,”IR & INT Ch EW 09 Dundesert Chanel Calvin at Leevindane”. We were very pleased to have been allowed to take ownership of her. She is a beautiful bitch with fantastic qualities, she came to the show ring at the age of 4 in April 2007 and between producing 2 fantastic litters of puppies she has managed quite a few wins including 7 Green Stars, 5 Reserve Green Stars, 6 C.A.C.I.B, 6 Best of Breeds,2 Reserve B.O.B  European Winners Title 2009 and Crufts Qualification 2010 taking VHC (5th) in her Veteran class at Crufts 2010. Chanel was Reserve Best in Show at the Irish Great Dane Club 2010 Champ Show. Chanel is now 11 years 5 months old retired from Showing and in good health.

We were absolutely delighted when Chanel was awarded Best Blue Female Great Dane at the Irish Great Dane of the Year CH SH 2007, beating her sister Danika (winner 2006). This was Chanel’s first entry in a CH Show.

Chanel also won this award for the second consecutive year 2008 and also won the award for Best Overall Blue 2008, taking over the award from her Father Bonel Larry of Daffaluke who had won the award for the previous two years.

Chanel did not compete in the 2009 Dane of the Year Show as we unfortunately had other commitments , however she had the European Winners CH SH the following day in which Chanel took BOB, Green Star & CACIB, Qualified for Crufts 2010 and also gained the title of European Winner 2009 (EW09).

Chanel went to Crufts 2010 at 7yrs old & was awarded 5th in the Veteran class and then won Reserve Best in Show and Best Overall Blue at the Great Dane Ch Sh July 2010 under Breed Specialist Linda van der Vijver of V ‘T Buitengebeuren Great Danes in Holland.

Chanel has 6 Cacibs, 7 Green Stars & 4 Best of Breeds, 3 RBOB, 6 Reserve Green Stars, 2 RCACIB, & a Reserve Best in Show at The Irish Great Dane Club Ch Sh July 2011 aged 8 years.

She has produced an Irish Champion, Swiss Ch, Lux Ch, Int Ch, Jun Ch, Bitch “Rua” and  is still looking great at 11years +.

Here at LeevinDane we are delighted that the Dundesert Kennels allowed us have Chanel and that they also agreed to allow us to breed from her, and we know they are over the moon too that Chanel made Champ in 2012.

That’s our Foundation Girl!!!
Forever in our hearts ,we love you to pieces Chanel xxxx
