Phoenix is the brains of the operation - great at working out puzzles and a lover of all games. She's also super-affectionate and can switch, at a moments notice, between couch potato and adrenaline junkie. She particularly adores the water - sea, river, pond, you name it, she wants to swim in it and play with it. Like Mingus, Phoenix also has a true, body-covering harsh wire coat that has never been stripped.

Phoenix was born on 11/11/2008, and for our very first Wire we were extremely fortunate to be given pick of litter from Millie of Riyel at Tarndair (Florie) x Leiborschy Wilfek (Mallard). This litter was line-bred back to Quodian’s Zanthos (Chaucer), unarguably one the finest HWV’s of all time.

A son of Moricroft Methuen (Harris) – who was Top HWV Puppy 2001 + Runner Up Top HWV Dog 2002 + Dog World Top HWV 2005 - Mallard was Top HWV Puppy Dog + Runner Up Top Puppy for 2006 and went on to take Best HWV Dog at Crufts 2008.

Phoenix had an outstanding debut show year, including 16 Best Puppy in Breed awards – three of them at Championship level – 7 Puppy Group Placings (2 Group 1's, 2 Group 2's, 1 Group 3 & 2 Group 4's) 2 Best of Breeds, a Reserve Best Puppy in Show and a Third Best Puppy in Show, as well as 8 separate qualifications for Crufts 2010.

In the crowning achievement of her show year Phoenix followed her Grand-sire Harris and was awarded Top Puppy as well as Top Puppy Bitch for 2009/2010 at the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Association Annual Awards.

Phoenix has proven to be an exceptional mother and has produced a number of outstanding offspring including several of the current top UK HWV show dogs. As a result she was awarded the Dog World/Lintbells Top HWV Brood Bitch for 2014.
