Temperament and Character

 

Splash can best be described as a "gentleman". He is very laid back, calm, and sometimes reserved, but warms right up to anyone he meets. He is sweet and gentle and will quickly give lots of kisses. Splash is a real lover. He comes and quietly sits next to you hoping to be petted. He will stare at you with his soft, dark eyes that just draw you to him.  He likes to lay his head on your lap and have his head stroked. All who meet him love his personality and want to take him home with them.

 

 

Splash can be a real character. When he wants something, such as dinner or outside, he will come and ever so gently take your hand as if to say "C'mon, let's go!".  Then when you get up to go do what he is asking of you, he turns in circles from the excitement of it all.

 

 

Splash's favorite game in the house is to roll his favorite ball down the flight of stairs and watch it bounce higher and higher as it picks up momentum on the way down. Once it's resting quietly at the bottom of the stairs, he stares at it a while trying to decide whether or not to go and get it. Eventually he decides it's time to go down and get it so he can do it all over again. He'll go and retrieve the ball, bring it to the top of the stairs, lay there and chew on it a while, and then roll it over the edge again.

 

 

Splash is very quick and eager to learn so he's very easy to train. About 1 month after we got him, he was taught the "down" command using only a hand signal during one 15-minute session. During the last half of the session, not one word was spoken, but the hand signal was given. Patience was paying off because you could just see the wheels turning in his head and that he was thinking about what the command meant and what he was supposed to do in response. When he finally figured it out, he didn't just lay down slowly and calmly, he literally plopped! SMACK, down on the floor, right now! It was like "Ok, I got it, now gimme the treat!" It was so funny to watch him and he still does it that same way to this day. He's so eager to please.

 

 

Splash loves the hunt! He stays at close range and is methodical about scouting the area that lies ahead. Like most pups of this breed, Splash has proven to be a natural hunter at a very young age. His pointing style is focused with head held at the level of his back or lower, with curled tail, and with the typical front paw lifted. He responds well to voice and hand commands.

 

 

Conformation

 

Splash is such a classically beautiful Llewellin. He displays all the traditional features desired of this breed's conformation. He is from Blizzard bloodlines.

Size: average sized for a male at around 55 pounds.

Color: white and lightly ticked in black with some body patches present.

Head:  beautifully proportioned with parallel lines (top of head, top of muzzle, and bottom of lower jaw). He displays a long muzzle with masculine jowls.

Eyes: amber; nearly round and proportionally spaced; soft and kind

Ears: set back on the head and at the level lower than the eye; carried close to the head when relaxed and pulled high when alert.

Coat: soft, silky and flat (not wavy); feathering is present on ears, chest, back of all legs and long on the tail.

Movement: very streamlined; seemingly effortless and very graceful;

 

Markings

 

If it weren't for the patch on his left eye and the one spot on his back, Splash would have been considered a Belton.

 

However, due to these markings he is merely considered a White and Black ticked dog. He has a relatively light to medium amount of ticking which appears in large clumps.
