Eli is a very, very well proportioned dog that is the result of many generations of selective and consistent line breeding from the iconic Telltale English Springer Spaniels.
His classic and unique style is particularly reminiscent to that of a very special dog who has left a lasting impression on the breed, CH Telltale Royal Stuart. From his stunning side profile to his eye-catching movement, he exudes breed type and that historic style that comes with the Telltale prefix.
Eli's most noteworthy qualities are his balanced proportions and complimentary angles in the front and rear, as well as his effortless sidegait and sound movement both coming and going. Not to be overlooked are his strong, gently sloping topline, short-coupled loin, and sturdy, compact body -- all of which make for a phenominal outline not only when standing, but while in motion as well.
In the show ring, Eli finished his championship very quickly with three majors as well as a Best of Breed from the classes over specials, following suit of his littermates who have also had many incredible successes at their young age, including several National specialty wins, specialty wins, and Best of Breed wins from the classes as well. The sum of their successes and their future potential have truly made for an exciting résumé for the entire litter.
Eli is being shown occasionally to finish his Grand Championship while he matures into what we believe will be a breathtaking and valuable asset to the breed as time goes on. We are very excited about this exhuberant young dog who is so full of life and potential.
