Introducing Django.

An extremely exciting new chapter opens for Belatarr as young Django joins the pack on a permanent basis!

Django at 10 weeks old.

Following in his father’s paw-steps Django becomes our second Jazz dog, named, as he is, after the legendary jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt – although we understand that Tarantino is soon to release his own Django project too.

Belatarr Django Reinhardt - at 7 weeks.

Django also shares his father’s wonderful coat – deep red & harsh – and has a head so similar to Mingus’ that we can’t tell them apart in their 6, 7 and 8 week pics – see below. He’s also very confident, extremely laid back and easy-going, and is already proving to be very keen to learn and eager to train.

Django immediately gravitates to the prime spot on the dog sofa.

Until he’s has his second vaccination Django can’t go on the ground in public areas, so, just like his parents before him, he’s been riding around in the baby sling in order that we can introduce him to the wider world. Needless to say, much attention and many oooh’s and aaaah’s follow from onlookers wherever and whenever he appears in public in this way!

It's very frustrating when you can watch your parents running around but can't join in the fun!

Getting to be quite a handful...

Riding in (or more often attempting to wriggle out of) the baby sling.

...he would really rather be hurtling around with all those other exciting looking dogs down there.

    Aww! Knew you’d be keeping one. Do jazz dogs do jazz paws?

      Yes, but only when they’re on the stage.

    Yeah I had a feeling you all would keep one of these too… why not right? He is a cutie, and I agree he looks a lot like his dad which is SO not a bad thing with how well he has done.
    So random question… do you know many standard Vizslas? the smooths… I am wondering what the temp differences between the two would be… if the wires are any more laid back. The downside is they tend to be larger and I really like my small girl. Just curious if you knew of any differences besides the coat and build.
    Looking forward to hearing more about the new boy
