Here's a list of Yondo's AKC champion offspring... to date.

Yondo now stands one champion away from joining the top five studs in the history of the St Bernard Club of America. With his son Xavier only seven minor points away from getting his title, it hopefully won't be long before he joins the exclusive "25 Club". The Fancy owes a big debt of thanks to John Cox of the Seattle area for putting together the SBCA Hall of Fame where the accomplishments of all the wonderful dogs in club history have carefully been recorded and made available via the Internet. John has devoted countless hours to research and build this database, at his own expense, over decades. It is a monumental accomplishment.

A trivia question... which dog was the biggest Yondo kid?

That distinction went to Ch Snowsage Virgil Von Yondo who matured out at over 220 pounds. Virgil was our stud pick from the breeding to Snowsage Lisa (twice a National BOS) and we rasied him to a year old at our place near Ottawa. But then we got a very special request. A gentleman from Kingman, Arizona, Joe Bibich, had tragically lost his son in an accident and his friends wanted to get him a nice dog to help him ease the pain. We packed Virgil into a crate (barely) and off he went to Joe. It worked out beautifully and Joe and Virgil went on to many fine wins thereafter.

Yondo produced at least one champion in every litter he sired. We couldn't ask for much more than that.
