Phoenix was sent to me in Apr. 2014, for my breeding her to Jamie Berg's CH. LENNIE LUVS THE LADIES. Merlyn showed her in a few shows at this time and got a Reserve Best in Show under Christine Anderson. Phoenix produced a great litter of four in Aug. 2014. All four puppies have finished (two with Best of Breeds) before a year old.
IN OCT. 2014, JAMIE BERG'S LOVELY DOG, FINN- CH. ENVI ME THE QUARTERBACK. came to CA. for Merlyn to Special in 2015. Finn ended 2014, with only two months showing, Number 16 in Breed standings. For 2015, he is Number 1 in breed points and Number 2 in All breed points.
CH. WINTERS WILD N'WONDERFUL- Wanda, in the meantime was making an outstanding show career in the rings of Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, together with successful appearances in Texas and New York. To date, Wanda has won 3 Best In Shows and 6 Reserve Best In Shows shown by her owner Carlos Estevez and Laura Estevez.
Merlyn and Finn have done very well together. They had big wins in Jan. and have continued winning Specialties, Breeds and group placements in CA. and the western states. This team rose quickly to the high standings-- Number 1 Breed, and No. 2 All breed. Finn is owned by myself, Jamie Berg and Merlyn Green.
In 2012, Merlyn Green specialed (with much success-MPCA Natl. specialty and 2 BIS!) CH .Brackley My Amazing Warrior- - Paxton, for Keri Haney-- so I sent Gch. Winters Wildn'Wonderful "Wanda" to Canada to be shown by superb handler, Cindy Kowalchuk.
"Wanda" won specialties, many groups, and a Reserve Best In Show in the short time she was there.
Wanda ended up 2012, as the No. 1 Min Pin in Canada before going to her new owners Laura and Carlos Estevez in the Dominican Republic. Wanda will be seen in Latin America and the USA in 2013, with Carlos handling her.
At the end of 2012. we began to special Gch. Pinnacole Winters Feel the Fire-- Phoenix and won several big breeds and specialties handled by owner/breeder, Melissa Cole. After winning Breeds at Palm Springs Kennel Club in early 2013, Phoenix was sold to Kim Swilling and Ruth Tarlton.
She will be specialed by them in 2013.
At present she stands No. 2 in Breed. Merlyn continues to show my class dogs, He will continue as my much appreciated and talented handler and friend. He has shown a number of my Min Pins to their championships, with many breed and group wins.
I breed or co breed with Melissa Cole about one or two litters a year and occasionally have litter box trained and socialized pet-companion quality pups for sale.
Show dogs are sold less frequently.
Puppies are sold with a health, money-back or replacement guarantee.
Winters Miniature Pinschers is a small show dog kennel. After breeding champion Whippets for fifteen years, I downsized to Min Pins in the late 1980’s, and keep ten adults, plus puppies here in my home. I am AKC licensed to judge Min Pins and Whippets. I have bred or owned over fifty Min Pin champions and my dogs have won many National Specialty (two Best of Breed), Specialty and All Breed honors.
In 2010, Merlyn specialed the beautiful Min Pin, GrCh. Winters Incredible Me “Icy”, quite successfully winning groups, group placements and specialties. “Icy” ended as No. 4 Min Pin in breed standings. Most gratifying to me as a breeder has been Icy’s worth as a stud dog. In 2010 alone, bred to no outside bitches,” Icy” has produced 11 champions. When bred twice to Ch.Winters Red Chiffon, he produced 8 champions. Chiffon who became a Hall of Fame bitch, has 12 champion offspring. Chiffon and Icy were MPCA Dam and Stud Dog of the Year for 2010.
For the year 2011, we will special the dynamic son of Chiffon and Icy, GrCh Winters What About Me “Ace”. “Ace” is co-owned with Sue Griswold. Dr. Merlyn Green, my neighbor, will continue as my invaluable and talented handler and friend. He has shown a number of my Min Pins to their championships, with many breed and group wins. I breed about one or two litters a year and occasionally have litter-box trained and socialized pet quality pups for sale. Show dogs are sold less frequently. Puppies are sold with a health, money-back or replacement guarantee.
