Am. Ch. Pennybright Silas – “Sealy”

Sealy is a strong, powerful dog. At the same time, he is a kind and loving chap. Very easy to live with, also with other males, Sealy enjoys romping with his sister Sia, rolling in the grass, and using his humans as a scratching post. He finished his championship with ease, doing well at All Breed Shows and Specialties alike. He passed on his wonderful front, great neck and lovely head to his 3 daughters we kept. They also inherited his keen hunting instinct and efficient movement.

Sealy is now retired. He lives with his daughter Sif and two feline companions in Missouri, enjoying the Ryan-family at its best.
