Sully has made a big move in his life and moved to Gawain Border Collies in Denmark. We look forward to following his show career when he hits the rings in June 2015.
His biggest win was Reserve Challenge Dog at the Brisbane Royal Show in 2012 in a huge lineup.
Multi Best of Breed, Class in Group Runner up to Best in Group Sully took a back seat lately whilst we showed our young Aussie Shepherd Team.
Sully has semen available in Australia.
Repeat mating of our record breaking blue girl Multi BIG and BIS Open show winning Ch Showioz Sapphire Martini, Sully brings outstanding comformation, movement and style in a blue package to the working dog ring.
Sullys pedigree name comes from the movie "Avatar" and its lead character. To assist the clans fight against their enemy "man", Sully rides the Great Leonopteryx, the apex airborne predator native to Pandora and in doing so he is called the Toruk Makto - or in english Rider Of Last Shadow by the native N'avi people.
Being the Toruk Makto can only be accomplished by one with a strong heart, and given the year 2011 was for us when our little Sully was born and shortly afterwards, we knew this was the perfect name for him. Only a few short weeks into his life his first battle was with a paralysis tick which we have never had at our home before, he fought it bravely and continues to grow into a strong and elegant young dog.
Not shown much as a baby due to other committments, he has come out in February 2012 and has been awarded several challenges/BOB over more mature competition including his half sister Sapphire.
