The sire of the 2016 litters: NBISS AKC GCHS Isneista Alspora Snati of Bayshore
I chose Snati to be the sire of these litters because I admired his conformation and temperament. I had seen Snati many times at dog shows. He was aalways calm, and did not react to other male dogs. He stayed with us for a month this fall to facilitate these breedings. He was so sweet, followed me everywhere, that I hated to send him back to Thordur. I am so pleased that Thordur allowed these breedings. Temperamentally, these should be very special puppies-not too reactive, smart, biddable with fine conformation. Snati is also a special Icelandic sheepdog in that he has double dew claws on all four paws, which is why his name includes Alspora. Perhaps one or two of the puppies will be an Alspora. Snati was Best of Breed at the 2016 Icelandic Sheepdog National Specialty in Missouri. The judge was Pat Putnam, who when she was very young worked with the man who helped preserve the breed, Mark Watson, when he lived in California.
