|Rocky finishes his American Championship at 7 1/2 Months Old with 5 majors in 8 shows!
Rocky finishes his Canadian Championship at 10 Months Old.
UNDEFEATED at the Breed level in 5 shows!
|Rocky, whelped as George (Foreman), has already grown into his name. A Knock-Out by birth, he has - like his namesakes - become a force in the show world. His debut in the conformation arena on his 6-month birthday with a major win was fortelling of the future for this young dog. In the three days that followed, he amassed three more Best of Winner majors and at 6 months and 3 days, found himself needing only a single to finish. He quickly grabbed not only his American Championship but went north of the border, earning his Canadian title undefeated at the Breed level, with multiple group placements and ending the year as the #11 Vizsla in Canada.
It was a true honor when Rachel and Ania, breeders with a longstanding tradition of vizsla excellence, chose to bring Rocky into their home as the new "man" of Willo Run Vizslas. Rocky has surpassed any hopes that we could have had for a healthy, well-tempered, conformationally correct vizsla when Melissa selected Owe'n to sire Kayla's litter. He is the best of what this combination has to offer. With the amusing quirkiness from his mom and the utter sweetness of his dad, Rocky is a true vizsla male - moderate in size and stature. He has a commanding presence in the breed ring: He is light on his feet, reaches from his beautiful and smooth shoulder and drives off his rear - showing a beautiful top-line and tail-set in motion and stops with confidence in a eye-grabbing freestack that only a correctly built and balanced dog can have. Most of all, he is the pride and joy of his owner and handler Rachel, never replacing the dogs of her past but helping to fill the void that only a "special" dog can do.
