About Janhi

Janhi was born in my second Brandywine litter, and was one of fourteen littermates, eight boys and six girls. Janhi is a precious little lady who was meant to be pet homed, but I was so pleased when the reservation was cancelled and I could keep her. She has nice markings and an outgoing character.

Janhi and her siblings are named after rivers of Finland, in celebration of the Finnish ancestry of their sire, Barnaby. Janhi is named after the river Janhi.
