See Josh's pedigree

Josh caught my eye even as a young puppy in litter of six, and he has never disappointed me.

Here are pictures of Josh at 6 weeks and 15 weeks old.

At age 4 months, Josh went to his first dog show to participate in the Beginner Puppy Competition. He won first place in the Non-sporting Group! He was off to a great start!

At age 5 months, Josh was entered in his second Beginner Puppy Competition. He not only took first place in the Non-sporting Group, he also won Best Beginner Puppy in Show!

When he was 6 months old and eligible to compete in point shows, he continued his winning ways through summer and into fall, earning 8 points. In October, we attended the ALAC National Specialty, where he was awarded Reserve Winners Dog, at age 9 months. That win, since it was at a national specialty also earned him a 3-point major, the first one awarded to a male at an ALAC National. I was so proud of him!
