GCH Celtia's Riverdance

"River"

River is a sweet boy who loves being around people as well as playing with the other dogs.  He is energetic (without being exhausting), and learns very quickly. He is also a great companion, loving to stay close by my side. River is now an AKC champion. We are so proud of this boy and thankful to Sarah Crepeau for showing him so beautifully.
