|I am working the other end of this. Have feelers out to a number of breed people who are researching for me. We are trying to list compile.
Last night, I did some research trying to unearth things in the meanwhile. I am very annoyed that no one in rescue has a promotional list, an effective site to promote rescue in competition dogs, which I think not only ought compete for that market (being a place where the "too much dog" usually ends up....a very desired trait in upper title ambitions; breeder returns often commonly being sought), but also counters the myth that only "bad" dogs are in shelters.
ANYHOW, from my start work last night while I am waiting for my breed people to compile,I have come up with
OTCh. Scapicchio's Custom Cruiser, a Golden who had been in three different homes in a short life until he arrived at his owner's with problems, went to complete his title.
A couple that I knew of....great Giant Schnauzer woman who also had OTCH Speedbump, the first JRT female to earn the title, who was a rescue. And of course Diane Bauman, a Cocker Spaniel charmer (very important to the breed) who also trained the first OTCH Peke in breed history, who was a rescue, and also put an OTCH on a Pom pulled from a shelter at age SIX.
Pat Cook, who was the first Am Staff to earn an OTCH, also a rescue.
Ok. Back to the the research! I know the agility dogs come up HUGE here....let me get that prelim list.
It will be a more extended wait for results from my breed people, but this will be a labor of love. If anyone knows a high titled rescue, post or pm. Post your titled successes too, and if you want to pmail me a testimonial of your journey....pmail me!
Thanks! My hope is to get a promotional site for this. Where it's not just talk "ooo, but you can find your competition prospect in a shelter" but hardcore tangible facts and some feel good stuff, too!
