Hoppu is our golden boy, puppy from Nessa and Fresco we have waited for years.

Hoppu is great. He is the happiest, most outgoing little boy there is. He is full of speed, social and greedy.

I´m planning versatile career for Hoppu, continuing in the path shown by her mother anf father. Hoppu has started obedience, agility, tracking, search, reporting and herding. We will continue training and see, what we are able to achieve.

For now Hoppu is the greatest cuddle dog for Make, which is the most important job for a male dog in our home.
