Stinger was the first male in our litter and the first red puppy for his sire, GCH Fiann Silver Sabre of Myshara our first Bred By to show AND our first bred by Conformation Champion! From the first minute he was born Stinger has been smart and very laid back and we knew he was special. Actually a better word is probably professional, he rarely makes a wrong move. He plays hard but then when he is tired he will walk back into the pen and go to bed. Before his eyes were open he was the puppy that was always on the move checking out the pen.
As he has grown he has kept a wonderful personality. He is the cupid of the house, with a big grin and a heart over-filled with love. Stinger loves people and will be a very good therapy dog once his show career is over.
He finished his AKC Championship quickly from the 12-18 month puppy classes, showing at prestigous and deep shows such as Chicago, Louisville and Concord, NC. He then went on to an outstanding USASA Nationals where he made the final cut in a very deep 12-18 class.
Too young to compete as a Special in the conformation ring, Stinger was started on sheep and ducks. He is a natural at it and has gotten rave reviews from our instructors. We hope to hit a few trials this summer and get his instict test and Pre-Trial titles.
The decision was made to try and complete Stinger's Grand Championship so we asked Lenny Brown to show Stinger. In his first show he was competing against three nationally ranked males and showed himself well earning eight Grand Championship points.
The following week Stinger got his first group placement with a Group 3. We were overwhelmed that Stinger (who is still very young) was competing against top Australian Shepherds yet holding his own. On his 5th weekend out he defied the odds by being named Reserve Best in Show. For a young unadvertised dog this was an amazing accomplishment. The icing on the cake was the Best in Show judge also judges ASCA so he knows good Aussies and was very complimentary of Stinger.
Stinger was awarded an Award of Merit at the 2015 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show! Australian Shepherds had te THIRD largest entry at the prestigous show. Stinger finished 2015 firmly in the top 20 (13th All Breed, 12th All Breed and 11th Grand Campion points) and was the only dog showing less than one weekend a month.
Stinger is now semi-retired from the show ring and working on titles in lure coursing and herding. He absolutely goes crazy for lure coursing!! Our goal is to show that a successful show dog can and will compete in other venues.
Stinger is a proven sire in very limited litters. He is a multiple point producer in conformation and has titled obedience and rally offspring. The icing on the cake is that his children have his wonderful disposition. Sting is a sweet goofy dog and you will find that most of his kids are the same.
Stinger is available to approved bitches. Frozen Semen available
Pedigree for Stinger
While he has had limited litters and we sell primarily to companion homes we are VERY proud of our puppies and owners who are out working with puppies. We breed for puppies to continue our showing and as equally or more important puppies that can be good family dogs. We encourage our dogs to get the Canine Good Citizen and are thrilled at how wonderful Stinger's pups are doing in and out of the ring. We also have a few puppies working as Service Dogs and one working to become a Search and Rescue dog. That is why we do this (In order of birth)
