Swedish Champion
Norwegian Veteran Winner 2011

Raffe was our first male, the clown of the family and the dog who never got old. He was a very funny dog. Up until the day he passed away, at 13 years of age, he never had a sick day and in his mind he was always a puppy.


December 18, 2000 ~ October 29, 2013
Breeder: Helena Strömbert, kennel Faraoland
Owner: Maria Kindberg, kennel Shahrans


Raffe was 25% new African with an American father and a French mother. He became father of our first litter and also sired a few more litters in Sweden. He has children and grandchildren all over the world and produced champions and Lure Coursing champions from several litters.


Raffe 12,5 years old


Raffe entered the ring for the first time when he was five months old and was BEST IN SHOW puppy. Since then he has some very nice winnings in the rings such as BEST IN SHOW at the African Match at the Swedish nat. specialty 2005, BEST IN SHOW 3 at at national show in Borås 2003, several BEST IN SHOW veteran placements including BIS veteran and the Swedish Westcoast's most beautiful veteran - all breeds - 2010. He earned his Swedish Champion title soon after turning 2 years of age. To finnish off his career he was BOS veteran 10+ at the Swedish nat. specialty 2011 and Norwegian Veteran Winner 2011, at his last show, 11 years old. In younger days he was also a very good Lure Coursing dog and has BOB and several unoff. CCs on the fields.
