No. 1 English Springer Spaniel All Systems Is ‘Teddy’
With debonair style, “Teddy,” a 5 ½-year-old liver-and-white male, has eased to the top as the No. 1 English Springer Spaniel all systems. Bred by Dorothy “Dotti” Cherry of Sherman, Connecticut, Lily Mancini of San Diego, and Ann Somerfeld of Stevenville, Maryland, MBIS/MBISS AM GCHP/CAN CH Cerise Bonanza has won six Bests in Show in a cumulative time span of one year on the circuit. Handler Howard Huber Jr. of Oxford, Pennsylvania, who co-owns Teddy with Cherry and Kendra Huber of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, says, “Teddy has a quiet disposition but is a magnificent show dog who loves everyone he meets. He is truly a breed ambassador with his great temperament.” Having begun Cerise English Springer Spaniels in 1997, Cherry focuses on breeding dogs with wonderful temperaments, excellent breed type and effortless movement. Her partnership with Huber, who has specialized in showing English Springers for 35 years, has produced some legendary winners. Prior to handling Teddy, Huber showed his sire, MBIS/MBISS AM GCHP2/CAN CH Cerise Blindside, who won 55 Bests in Show and 277 Sporting Group Firsts and was the No. 1 English Springer all systems in 2016 and 2017. Although a more serious dog than his sire, Teddy, too, adores dog shows and is fond of Huber. The handsome male is fed Purina Pro Plan SPORT Performance 30/20 Salmon & Rice Formula.
