Virtu Collies

Virtu was inspired by both Ch. Asil Who's Who and Ch. Tartanside Heir Apparent. Years ago a continental search for expresssion and type (focused on dogs from associated kennels with extensive line-breedings based on Ch. Asil's Who's Who and Ch. Tartanside Heir Apparent) took place to enable Virtu Collies to reproduce the much sought after "look". In Canada Virtu joined the family alongside Kaiteka and Alfenloch. In the US the famous Ravette, Tartanside, Hi Vu, Candray and Glen Hill were some of the dominant names from 'the family'. This search culminated in the the acquistion of direct sons and daughters and only those heavily line bred from:

Ch. Tartanside Heir Apparent

Ch. Asil's Who's Who

Ch. Tartanside Th' Critics Choice

Ch.Tartanside Presentation

Can Ch. Knockout by Kaiteka

Ch. Alfenloch Masterpiece

Can Ch. Virtu's In Excess

Someone once said a kennel is only as good as its bitch force. Here at Virtu years were spent selecting/acquiring the right bitches for our vision. Some of these lovely bitches included:

Candray Cherish the Moment(Luminesse daughter/Bedazzle gr)

Ravette's Midnight Memory(Heir Apparent daughter x inbred R. Midnight Image)

Ravette's Virtu In the Heirs (Critic's Choice x Heir Apparent daughter)
