About "Beckham"

 

Tubize Van' Nistelrooy for Remikz ShCM - "Beckham" was the only male in his litter and we were lucky enough to be offered him by his breeders Donald & Heather Smith (Tubize), who also bred and own the Miniature Pinscher Breed Record Holder.  Beckham himself is the German Pinscher Breed Record Holder, having been UK Top German Pinscher Puppy in 2004, and being unbeaten as UK Top German Pinscher his whole career from 2005 until 2011 inclusive.  He was Crufts Best of Breed 2006, 2009 and 2010 and Reserve Best of Breed 2008.  He comes from an exceptional litter as his sister Tubize Ginger Rogers "Sassy" owned by Donald and Heather Smith, was also Top German Pinscher Bitch from 2005 until 2008 inclusive. Beckham’s interests include free running on our local beaches with his playmates Disney and Lauren, taking up all of the available sofa and bed space in the house, barking greetings to  the dogs visiting our Grooming Parlour, and of course wearing lots of bling.
 

Beckham is the top winning German Pinscher of all time.  Apart from his achievements in the Breed Ring, he has also made an impact in “All breed” competition, having been Overall Winner of the Vitalin Pick of the Litter competition 2004 (including Top Working Puppy and Top Rare Breed categories).  He is the first and only UK titled German Pinscher, and was the first German Pinscher to win Best in Show at an All Breeds Open Show.  He is also the first German Pinscher to be placed in a puppy group at Championship Show level (a feat he achieved twice under Zena Thorn-Andrews) and has been Shortlisted five times in the Adult Group at Championship Show level.  He won best Working Group Rare Breed and Reserve Rare Best Rare Breed in Show at National Working and Pastoral Breeds Society Championship Show in 2007 under Albert Wight. He represented his Breed in the prestigious Contest of Champion Show Dogs at the T
histle Hotel, Heathrow on seven occasions 

throughout his career. In other competition, he has been a qualifier for the South West Supermatch in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 and has won multiple stakes classes at both Open and Championship Show level.  He has also taken Group one on numerous occasions at Open Show Level, all firsts for a German Pinscher.

 

Finally, as well as being “The Standard German Pinscher” in looks and type, Beckham is a true ambassador for his breed.  He passed his KC Good Citizen Bronze Award at the Age of five months and also represented the Breed in “Discover Dogs” at both Earl’s Court and Cruft’s every year throughout his career.  We are also very proud that he has been chosen to feature in the current Kennel Club Illustrated Breed Standard's Book as the template for the Breed! 

 

He is a one in a million dog, and we love him to bits!
