ABS DC Sunrise Maximus v Ruger MW ME ROMX


At five years of age, hunting rabbits

Red Miniature Wirehaired Dog
Sire: CH SilverCloud’s Sunset Bandit MW
Dam: FC Sunrise Lightly Tanned MS ME ROMX
Whelped: July 17, 2004
Died: NA
Breeders: Dawn-Renée Mack and Valerio Hernandez
Owners: Dawn-Renée Mack, Paul Knutson and Valerio Hernandez

Maximus was an excellent producer for both others and his breeders.  He produced puppies with his beautiful, fluid movement that were much better than himself.  Maximus’ wire offspring tended to inherit his hard, double coat.  He stamped his excellent ribbing and keel and headpieces improved immensely in both wires and smooths.  Extremely easy to live with and biddable enough to call off a sight chase, he replicated that in his offspring.  He is both sichtlaut and spurlaut and those attributes have expressed themselves in many of his get.  I was extremely lucky to get such a nice producer in what was truly (though not technically) my first litter.

Unfortunately, in August of 2013, Maximus developed a significant back issue at age 9.  He recovered completely with conservative treatment, and we are pleased to have him back to 100%.  However, I feel this information should be shared with folks who might find him or close relatives in their pedigrees. Questions are welcome if anyone needs details.
