Ch. Calais of Solivia Becker Arizmendi has produced Best in Show Winners
and almost 60 champions.
A once-in-a-lifetime producer, we are ever grateful this dog came into our lives. He is descended from the finest American and European, particularly Italian, bloodlines. Group Winner & Group Placer. 2006 Top Ten. OFA Good Hips, Elbows Normal.
A Top Sire of Multiple Best in Show, Best in Specialty Show, Westminster Kennel Club, Number One, and Top Ten Winners, Cloud has proven his worth as a producer of correct type. He produces his ground-covering side gait, correct, naturally short tail and delicate, thin leathered ears. This dog is honest, sound and extremely useful with his international pedigree combining Solivia, Italian, Irish and English pedigrees of distinction.
Top Pointer Sire in America for 2008, 2009, 2010, & 2011!
(His grandson was the Top Sire in America in 2012!)
To date, he is the sire of 57 AKC champions, Best in Show winners in three countries (in Australia, Scotland, and in the United States at both AKC and UKC shows), and Grand Champions in the United States and Australia.
Cloud's mark of quality is coming down through the generations; his grandchildren are AKC Best in Show, National Specialty Best of Breed, Top Ten Ranked winners! And, his grandchildren are Best in Show and Top Ten winners in other countries too!

In his brief campaign, Sporting Dog specialists noticed and appreciated this young dog's excellent type, soundness and smooth, correct movement. In 2004, we sent his sire to Mexico for a year's campaign. While there, he was bred to the pure Italian Mex. Ch. Onix D'Andrea, and we were thrilled to receive this treasure from co-breeders Gaby Arizmendi and George Becker DVM. Cloud is 14 months old in this photo. He was a top ten ranked Pointer in his first year and only year in the show ring.
