Kiara Female Labrador


KIARA (“Kiki”)

DOB: 22-07-2013

Bred by Mrs J.van Heerden (Kennel Ablesing)

Loved & Owned by Mrs Sandy Borralho (Kennel Mirain)


Kiara was born form the same combination as Klara, Allegra and Don (Kiara’s litter brother). Kiara was destined to become the second girl bred in this line to be awarded the prestigious title “Best in Show” at the Labrador Retriever Kennel Club (in 2018), after her older sister Klara won this sought after title in 2013. Trotter would have been so very proud of his wonderful offspring!

Sandy Borralho, Kiara’s owner and exhibitor, describes her as follows:

“Kiara (aka Kiki) has been a superstar from the day she entered the show ring. She absolutely loves to strut her stuff and is a true show girl – more than happy to show for anyone who cares to show her, however her favourite handler is, without a doubt, Lucy Young – Kiara loves the limelight!

She is a headstrong young lady and when she decides she has been in her crate long enough – she lets us know. She is also convinced she can show herself, therefore she decides how big a circle she will do when she enters the ring and how far ‘away and back’ means! She is also well known for talking quite loudly in the ring – much to my embarrassment at times.

My incredible Kiara was awarded her International Champion title on the 17 May 2018 and her Grand Championship on 2 October 2018. The cherry on the cake was when Mrs Patricia Harrison, a Labrador Specialist Judge from England, awarded her Best in Specialty Show at the Labrador Club’s 51st championship show and the next day at the Gundog Club championship show, our Judge, Mr Louis Kruger, awarded her Reserve Best in Specialty Show.

At home, she is an absolute pleasure to live with – extremely gentle but full of nonsense at the same time. A true Labrador, she loves the pool, so will jump in and then run through the house dripping water all over, and she gives us such a “naughty” grin as she does so, then repeats the process. She had puppies in 2017 and we kept a girl, so she has taught her daughter to the same – she certainly keeps us on our toes.”

Kiara is an exceptionally beautiful black bitch and her amazing show results over many years need no qualification. We thank Sandy and her family for offering Kiara such a wonderful and loving home. A beautiful girl completed by a wonderful and true Labrador temperament!
