Vivian was one of our favorite puppies from our Striker x Tiffany litter in 2011. Sired by our Westminster and USASA National Specialty Award of Merit winner, GCH Schaefer Vinelake Impulsive "Striker" and out of AKC/ASCA GCH Briarcliff Radiant Jewel "Tiffany", this girl has every right to be a star in the conformation ring.

Her sire Striker is the only undefeated dog in the history of the breed in the Italian conformation ring and has earned a lifetime qualification to Crufts by becoming an International champion, and her dam Tiffany showed her way to a Premier Award at the 2011 ASCA National Specialty as well as picking up second in the Conformation Finals at the same National (originally tied for first place in points). Tiffany also ranked among the top 10 Australian Shepherds in ASCA that same year in extremely limited shows.

Vivian completed her Canadian championship at one year of age with minimal showing while living in Canada. The following year Vivian traveled to Europe with our good friend Gabriella Lovati. In limited shows, Vivian earned her Italian championship and is halfway to her Croatian championship.

Vivian has been shown very few weekends in AKC and quickly earned her championship with five Best of Breed wins from the classes, two of those being for five point majors over nine specials, and a group placement. From January to April 2016, Vivian was ranked one of the Top 20 Australian Shepherds in breed points. Vivian has been to a small handful of ASCA shows and currently sits at 8 points with two major wins, one of them being under Herding Authority Judge Mr. James Moses.

Vivian is now living the best life in her retirement home!
