Athos – is our king. He was born as the biggest in the litter but also the most gentle. When he was little, he was mostly sleeping and eating.

He had the habit of hiding in an unusual place and was sleeping, and sometimes he was sleeping for food.

During his growing up, he became more playable and very confident in himself. On the other hand, he is very gentle towards puppies, females, and small dogs.

Gradually, I’ve been looking for a show home for a long time. At one point a family appeared to be interested in him, but when his other brother came. When he was seven months old we decided that he was going to stay with us – he wasn’t going anywhere.

Athos is now a beautiful little man who is aware of his terrestrial power, but very mentally calm. He is ready to play, research and never tire. In his world, Belka is the main one. She’s all for him. For Athos, Belka is his whole world.


And indeed, he is a real show dog –in the ring always perfect: obedient and real actor. And beyond the ring he is playful, hunter, explores, jumps.

He has the unusual trait we are still exploring: He detects pain in humans and animals. He is very sensitive to painful spots and sometimes warns us when Belka and Ziva are feeling painful, but also when something hurts. He is indeed the king of the wheaten world – the king of love, play, and happiness.

Grow Up


Athos is a very nice boy who always looks good in the ring. So far he has always had very good descriptions and grades and only 9 months old was Club Winner + BOB (Terrier Club Croatia in Zagreb, November 2017) (Belka was second) – Judge Son Delmar.

Athos is still a young male who is developing but is extremely well trained in the ring and is attached to the handler.  Although he is a young male, Athos achieves remarkable results in the ring. He is very attractive and his time is yet to come.

Life & Activities

Young, never tired – the little one who loves running, skips obstacles, explores. He likes to play, especially to hide behind the objects and then surprise Belka. The game with Belka is the most important part of his day.

Athos loves children, small dogs, and young dogs and is very careful in playing with baby dogs.

He’s very sensitive to people’s pain and often nurses a pain site. He’s a dominant male, but still very young, so he doesn’t always like other adult males, though without aggressive or inappropriate behavior.
