China (Reggae's Baccarat), CGC
a/k/a Cha-Cha and the Red Rider
China is a very sweet, loving and whimsical puppy. He is the more spirited and gamey of the two brothers and can most often and likely be found getting into "things", with Jak being the on-looker. When he and Jak run in their yard together, China would rather be the chaser than the chasee. China loves people, especially children and/or toddlers.
Jak (Reggae's Blackjak)CGC
a/k/a Jak-a-Bee, Bee-Ah, Tickle-Bee, Tickle-Me-Elmo Dog.
Jak is a very sweet, friendly, mellow and very much the laid-back ("marshmallow") puppy. Jak would rather stand by your side in the yard, than run with his brother China. Jak loves to meet new people.
