We are very excited about this new boy at Casa Hoya's!
Cruise came to us from Las Vegas, USA when he was almost 14 months old. I'm very honored that his breeder/owner Kathy Maguire contacted me and considered us as a new home for her special boy. It came totally out of the blue for us, but was a great surprise and we are thrilled to get this wonderful opportunity as I'm in love with him since the day he is born :-)
Cruise is a very sweet loving male, who adapted real quick and smoothly in our household. Like he has been with us forever. He's very relaxed and always in for fun stuff. He is a natural in the water as you can tell!

Cruise has a lot of dogs in his pedigree that I admire for a long time :-)
His sire "Sam" is an amazing working water dog, I had the pleasure to meet him several times when I was in the USA. He comes from a lovely line of dogs that I'm a big fan of :-)
Cruise's mom "Phoebe" catched my eye from puppyhood as well and it was lovely to watch her grow and follow up on how she was doing. Gotta love the internet! In 2006 we watched Phoebe her mom "Chloe" win Best Puppy, Best of Winners and an Award of Merit at the PWDCA National Specialty from the 6-9 puppy class!
Lots of dogs in his pedigree have been very succesful at the National Specialties :-)

Thanks so much Kathy for entrusting your special boy to us!
He is such a pleasure to live with and it's great fun working with him :-)
