All this and he was still only 13 months old.
At the 2012 DCWA Inc Specialty Champ Show, he was awarded BEST JUNIOR IN SHOW. He was also awarded BEST EXHIBIT UNDER 18 MONTHS for the 2nd time. Callan is the only dog that has won this award twice in the history of DCWA Inc Specialties. Thank You to the judge Doug Bowe.
2013 has seen him shown sparingly (out of the ring from April through to late November while I was receiving treatment) but he already had 3 BIG's to his credit. Callan missed most of 2014 due to major surgery in February. He has been shown sparingly in 2015 and the decision was made to retire him from entire competition.
Callan has been neutered so watch for him in the Open Neuter Class from late July 2015.
On 16/1/16 Callan was awarded BOB Neuter giving him final points for his Neuter Champion title. This was achieved with many Class In Group and Class In Show wins and in just under 6 months in a State where Neuter is not offered at every show.
