(Ulyxes da Quinta do Espinhal d'Adephagia)
Ulyxes came over from Portugal to join our family on 09 May 2013. We decided to import a male puppy in order to improve and increase the available breeding stock in the UK, because we had found it immensely difficult to find a suitable mate for Missy with new bloodlines, a problem which has troubled conscientious breeders in the UK for some time. Uly's pedigree can be found here.
Uly is a large Estrela and has always been a real character, generating fans wherever he goes, and being very aware of just how gorgeous he is. He also has a great temperament, both of his parents being therapy dogs for the disabled in Portugal.
In January 2020, he became a father for the first time, after having been checked for hip dysplasia ("HD"), dilated cardiomyopathy ("DCM"), hypothyroidism and diabetes. More photos of Uly can be seen on his "Gallery" page here, and his health test results can be found here.
