2017-2018 Purina Awards

Congratulations to owner/handler Kieth Wright for his Top Amateur All-Age Award win with Touch’s Fire Dancer. May is pictured on the left in the lovely painting by Ross Young!

Congratulations to owners Joe & Tricia Rentz on their Top Amateur Shooting Dog Award win with Redland’s Jacked Up handled by Joe and scouted by Tricia. Jack is pictured on the right in the beautiful painting by Ross Young.
