Eyes that look into your soul and a personality no one can resist. He is a loyal companion, a goofball, a therapy dog, a versatile worker, a snuggler…Rutger, GCH CH VLX BoBev’s Runnin Down A Dream NDD CD RE CGCA. Rutger is a quietly confident male. He is steady, relaxed and very easy-going. Rutger is happiest when surrounded by people, and he loves to make people smile. A natural therapy dog, he enjoys visiting retirement homes, schools and hospitals. He knows when to be serious and when to be a clown. At home Rutger is a very content house dog and is usually napping in a central spot in the house where he can keep an eye on what’s happening.
Rutger is a true representative of the versatile working Leonberger. He has front and backend titles, including his Versatile Leo Excellent title awarded by the Leonberger Club of America. Rutger has been owner-handled for every title. He was the first Leonberger to earn the CGCA title. He approaches every new activity with a wagging tail and a desire to please me. I never planned to have as many “firsts” as I have had with Rutger. First dog to earn a title with, first dog to show in conformation and first dog to use at stud. He is my “one in a million” Leonberger and every day we have together is an absolute blessing.
Rutger has passed all of his health testing with flying colors, and we invite you to take a look at his OFA health profile and pedigree. If you have an interest in using Rutger in your breeding program please contact me using the form on this page or via phone, (610)453-2532.
Rutger has sired four litters of gorgeous Leonberger puppies – the BoBev Z litter, Cherrywood W litter, Caprock A litter and Cherrywood Z litter. We are pleased to see Rutger’s sweet nature and good looks being passed along to his offspring. At this time we do not have any planned breedings, but I will update this page when that changes.
