Dandy traveled all the way from the Czech Republic to be a part of our family.  We are very thankful to
Klára Hinková of Amaranthville Australian Shepherds for entrusting us with this wonderful boy.
This sweet boy always has a smile on his face and has been enjoying his time in the show ring with his fantastic handler, Paul Catterson.  Paul and his team are so amazing and Dandy absolutely loves them!
At Dandy's very first show in November 2018, he wowed us all by placing Best Of Winners at the Council Bluffs Kennel Club in Iowa.  After a few months of showing, Dandy took a break from the show ring to mature.
Dandy rejoined Paul in spring 2020 where he earned his first 4 point major win at the Cyclone County Kennel Club of Ames.  Dandy took another break while shows were cancelled due to the pandemic and rejoined Paul again in the fall of 2020 when AKC shows opened back up.  At the Sioux Empire Kennel Club shows in October 2020, Dandy placed Best Of Opposite and Best Of Breed with a Group Three placement.
Dandy finished his AKC Championship with a 4 point major win Winners Dog placement at the North Arkansas Kennel Club.  Only two days later at the Ozarks Kennel Club, Dandy picked up his first two Grand Champion 4 point major wins with Select Dog placements.
In December 2020, Dandy attended the AKC National Championship and pre-shows with Paul Catterson & team.  At the Sunshine State Herding Group Association specialty show, Dandy was awarded Select Dog, a 5 point major win.  This pre-show specialty to the AKC National Championship had an impressive entry of 100 Australian shepherds.  At the AKC National Championship, Dandy made the first cut.
We are very proud of Dandy's achievements in Orlando!
