Phoenix comes to us from a long term Swissy breeder and AKC Breeder of Merit Gold status, Laurie Carmody of Matterhorn Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs. Laurie has a long standing reputation for producing top working dogs with multiple titles in multiple events, and has produced many Versatility Greater Swiss (VGS) titled Swissies. In addition, she has also produced top winning dogs in the conformation show ring, all with fabulous temperaments to go along with their structure and willingness to work. Phoenix is loosely related to our Sybil and our Pearl- all share Laurie Carmody's Yuri as a grandsire, but each from different offspring from different breedings. We are excited to see what Phoenix brings to our breeding program!
