Our lovely Ami had been bred twice before I did the breeding that produced Divina and her handsome brother, Shimron. The first time Ami was bred to our Hayyim and had a gorgeous litter of 5. The second time she was bred to our Izzy and had an outstanding litter of 5. As I was not in a position to keep a puppy from either of her two previous litters, I was determined to have one this time. I was in luck, as the 2 live puppies Ami had this time (she also had 2 stillborn) were beautiful, and Divina immediately caught my eye. She and her brother were almost identical and both showing outstanding type and conformation, even as newborns.

As I have been somewhat handicapped with spinal problems for 2 years prior to this litter, it was a bit of a struggle to socialise and train Divina to her potential, but she is as sweet-natured as her mum and loves meeting people, so I didn't think it would be too difficult as she was already meeting me more than half-way by being outgoing by nature.

Divina made her show ring debut at the Canaan Dog Club of the United Kingdom's annual single-breed open show on the 6th April 2014 where she was Best Puppy In Show and her dad, 'Izzy' was Best in Show, and her brother, 'Moshe' was Reserve Best in Show. We were proud of how Divina behaved, taking everything in her stride. She then went on to not only winning Best Puppy, but also twice winning Best Bitch over adults during the 2014 show season and was the Top Canaan Dog Puppy 2014.

On the 17th August 2017 Divina presented us with a gorgeous litter of 5 - 2 boys and 3 girls - sired by our handsome Caiser. As a first-time mum, she proved she was more than up to the challenge and did an excellent job of raising her little ones and casually greeted all the visitors to her babies. We were fortunate to have some excellent homes lined up for the puppies, one of whom had a Canaan Dog from us that passed away almost 3 years prior to the birth of this litter. The reports we have gotten from the puppies families have been wonderful.

She has since gone on to have two more litters, each sired by our Italian import, McGee. Our very wonderful Vinny (Anacan Invicible) is one of the offspring from the first of these matings. She has really done her bit for the breed and is now retired from our breeding programme. Divina has been a great mum, an asset to the breed, and a great family member and we are blessed to have her.
