Gish a is a son of our Milana and a great grandson of our William.

This litter almost cost Milana her own life: The puppies were extremely large, and in the middle of the night, Milana had emergency surgery. During her difficult recovery, I was on my own with the newly born babies. ..So Gish, along with his siblings Glasha and Gordon, were three miracle babies who literally became “the apples of my eye” and are really special to me.

    Gish was amazing from day one – the “little man” of the litter, who was strong, brave and very smart.

Gish 10 m.o.

 He was always first to try anything new: Eat from the bowl? Yep! Bathing? I love it! Blow drying? Done! Am I good boy, Mommy?
And this is how his personality turned out – he loves to work, and he is always there for his family.

 But time flies and from the marvelous baby Gish is growing into a prominent, stunning, and very large male.

 He has taken the best traits of both of his outstanding parents and truly is an excellent BRT from any point of view - anatomy, temperament, stability, power, and intellect really come all together in Gish. And I am so proud of my baby.

 I am very grateful to Gish's owner Brad Spaulding and his wife Lynn for the amazing care and unconditional love they give to him. I am happy to see that priceless bond of a magnificent animal and a human when they are a whole together.Thank you, Brad, for all your huge work with Gish, which stands behind his titles and great socialization! And for giving him his very happy life! I could never dream of a better home for a son of my beloved Milana.

 I cannot wait to see Gish in his full maturity, as he becomes a sire and carries the legacy of Zastava to new generations!

Written critique from 2015 BRTCA National Specialty Show, where 19 mo. Gish became Res. Winner Dog.
by the judge Dr. Steve Keating:
“Excellent formation, expression and beautiful overall type. Presents himself very nicely. Square and “ grace outline” were his remarkable attributes.”
