Between her performance abilities and conformation achievements under breeder judges WINNINGEST BLUE STAFFORD IN THE HISTORY OF THE BREED WORLDWIDE.  Marina beat more Staffords to attain her Championship and Grand Championship status than any Top Ten Stafford of any color and continues to break records in the breed! Not too shabby for a bitch rarely shown.

So far her get are also proving to be quality with her first litter titling in performance and conformation with 3 CH titles plus many performance titles and her singleton from her 2nd litter easily gaining his title at Specialties with 3 WD/BOW and RWD, BOB from the classes and a Group 3!

Thank you to our very good friends Trevor & Diane Taylor (Niatona)  for the use of their gorgeous boy Cyril to produce this long awaited litter. CH Baysend Nice One Cyril Has only produced two litters in the USA and Marina is a result of this AI. The second litter was to our bitch Hula.

This blue bitch has a pleasing outline with flowing lines and she is well balanced with good rear angulation. She is very appealing from the front, with a chest of good width, clean shoulder, and straight limbs with slight turn out of feet. Her strong neck enhances her construction, which includes a good tailset and carriage. She has keen expression enhanced by neat ears on a feminine head of good breed type.

Critique from GWTA 2013 – Judge Eric Galvin – Bred by Exhibitor Bitch 1st – Wavermaker Pacifica Blue, yes BLUE. A bitch of great quality and my advice to you all is to go over this bitch with your eyes closed, let your hands tell you what your eyes are trying to fight against, yes she is a blue but she is all Stafford from the sculptured head piece with the best of ears straight front spring of rib great back end and if I could have a bitch with the qualities she has I wouldnt care what colour she was ,is her colour in the standard Yes of course it is.

Critique from WINNERS BITCH and BEST OF WINNERS SBTCA – Supported entry – GWTA – Judge Ms. Karon Jackson – Bred By Exhibitor Bitch 1st Caswell’s WAVEMAKER PACIFICA CA CGC – Blue bitch who possesses all the attributes of a typical Staffordshire bull terrier. A very eye catching bitch who has captivating ring presence. Pleasing head shape of good size and shape. Deep through skull with good width. Short enough in foreface, distinct stop. Balanced head. Well set neat ears and good eye placement offering a feminine keen expression. Clean lipped. Good bite. Strong enough in underjaw. Straight front. Well sprung rib, good depth of brisket. Good bone. Level topline standing and on the move. Pleasing lines throughout. Great coat, smooth and short. She is in great physical condition, tucked up well into strong loins. Defined muscled hind quarters and well let down in hocks with enough bend to stifle. She stood foursquare and her handler got the very best from her. I am sure she will continue to do very well as her attributes are numerous and there for all to see. I had no hesitation in awarding her WINNERS BITCH. BEST OF WINNERS: Caswell’s WAVEMAKER PACIFICA CA CGC – My Winners bitch who won through to this award on her overall breed type and ring presence. So alive and alert, quite charismatic. She is young and I’m sure will continue to impress and secure more top honours. Well deserved
