Tiger is our handsome male from a carefully planned line breeding. He has a distinguished pedigree that is the product of many MBISS and NBISS winning dogs with outstanding breed type that we have bred to over the years. Tiger gained his Australian Champion title at the tender age of 11 months, becoming our youngest male to do in the process. Shown extremely sparingly since gaining his Championship title, Tiger has made a name for himself, consistently achieving Class wins at Specialty and National Specialty Shows and winning multiple Best of Breed, Class in Group and Class in Show awards in the All Breeds and Hound Rings under a wide range of Breed, Hound and International judges.
In 2013 he was awarded Opposite Intermediate In Show [his cousin Nia was RU Best in Show and Intermediate in Show] at the RRCSA Specialty Show under Breed Specialist Judge Mrs S Cameron-Codognotto [Ozrhode Vic], and also cut to the final 2 for Best Headed dog, before being pipped at the post by his sire, Hawk. He also made a lovely start to his tracking career, completing his Tracking Dog Title in his first season of trialling.
In 2014 he was Best Intermediate in Show and Reserve Challenge Dog at the Victorian RR Specialty Show, and again later that year was Best Intermediate Dog and Best Headed Dog at the 11th RR National Specialty Show in Brisbane under Breed Specialist Judge Mr G Cunningham [Walamadengie Scotland]. Tiger also finished the 2014 Tracking Season gaining passes to achieve both his Tracking Dog Excellent and Tracking Champion Titles.
The 2015 trial season has seen him maturing in his approach to the Track and Search discipline and we have been delighted at the conscientious, measured and methodical approach he has brought to all his tracks this season which has seen a faultless season for him and Matt with excellent grades and two new titles.
He has matured into a handsome and upstanding male; he has a lovely combination of masculine strength of bone, whilst still maintaining an elegant, clean outline. He is well proportioned with a lovely strong, well-balanced head and lovely clean, straight forward, free and active movement. Despite being shown sparingly in recent years, his qualities continue to be recognised by many International judges and Hound Specialists.
