Dog lovers, this is the story for you!
One Ohio girl and her dog impressed the judges at the American Kennel Club National Championship Dog Show in Orlando Florida last month.
It all started in 4-H at 8 years old for Sarah Fox and she says she’s loved it ever since.
Co-owner, Handler of Bandit, Sarah Fox said, “We’ve been to Michigan, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Florida, everywhere.”
Fox and her four year old Smooth Collie, Bandit placed first in his breed out of 21 contenders and they’re in the running to become first in the country in his class.
“I’m very excited, like me and Bandit we’ve been together and everything through thick and thin at the shows and everything. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad and I think we have a really good future ahead,” said Fox.
So what’s coming next for Sarah and Bandit?
Fox said, “For him he is going to actually be going to some specialties. We’d like to keep him in the Top 10 for this upcoming year. For me, I’m actually going to a show this weekend. When I get older I want to become an actual handler to start showing other people’s dogs and I hope to become successful.”
Fox was named the number one collie Junior handler for 2018.
Bandit is number one owner handler right now and Fox says she’s so proud of him and can’t wait to see what happens in the New Year.
He is also co-owned by Robin Reed, Virginia Reed Mehr, and Joann Thomas and the breeders are Robin Reed, Virginia Reed Mehr, and Mary Lee Shingle.
