Susan Sinclair - Wanna'be kennel

Author: Pub date: Views: 35

Despite the almost complete absence of at least some information about Susan Sinclair and the Wanna'be kennel on the modern Internet, her contribution to the development of the miniature australian shepherd is invaluable and very important.

Mrs. Sinclair is from Georgetown, South Carolina. Dogs were a hobby of her whole life and were always there. Since 1971, Susan began breeding purebred show dogs.

In early 1989, Susan became interested in small-sized australian shepherds. Her first mini aussie was a female Destiny's Wanna'be Jazz, blue merle color, daughter of the famous Croswhite's Miss Kitty Fox (owner Kathy Croswhite, Destiny kennel). Susan and Kathy worked together for many years, cross-knitting and working in the same direction.

Their common interests continued even further - Kathy and Susan became the founders of the first breed club - MASCUSA. They survived its renaming into NAMASCUSA, the split of clubs and their separation, while maintaining their views and defending their interests. Susan Sinclair led the club for 6 years, and then changed her presidency to a member of the board of founders of MASCUSA.

With a total experience in cynology of about 40 years (from 1971 to 2010), twenty of them were dedicated to the breed by a miniature australian shepherd. Such a contribution to the development and popularization of the breed is difficult to underestimate. Dogs with the name Wanna'be lived throughout the United States and beyond, they are found in the pedigrees of almost all modern mini aussies.

Perhaps the success of the dogs of the Wanna'be kennels is easy to explain: Susan Sinclair actually managed to get universal dogs! They were the show stars, outstanding in agility and obedience, showed the expressed working qualities in herding, and were also excellent companions (numerous enthusiastic reviews of their owners testify to this).

Perhaps one more historical moment in the breed - it was then that miniature aussies proved to everyone that they were competitive not only in shepherd’s work, but also in sports. For example, in agility, even then, border collies were second to none. Mini aussies Wanna'be achieved excellent results on any track - agility, jumping, gamblers. They attracted attention and gained more and more popularity.

Many Wanna'be dogs became the ancestors of breeding in other kennels. Susan actively collaborated with many beginners as well as experienced breeders. Wanna'be mini aussies lived with Linda Perry (Patchwork kennel), Lynn Whinery (Bonza kennel), Kathy Croswhite (Destiny kennel) and many other equally well-known australian shepherd breeders.
