Once again we were not planning on a new addition, but when this very special litter was born out of Wendy Jordan's Wescot's Girl Crush "NV" (Player/Puzzle 1.0) and Joan Lawson's AKC CH Holther's Perfectly Sketched MAD "Sharpie", we couldn't say no. HotShot caught our eye from the get go and we are so excited and very thankful our good friend Wendy agreed to let Hot make his way to Georgia to live with some of his relatives.
HotShot is sweet, outgoing, funny, and quite the character....he's quite the Big Shot! He reminds us SO much of his granddad, Player, and several of his other relatives who live with us. He has a larger than life personality and loves EVERYONE he meets. He is super stable and outgoing, but much like Player, LOVES to be with me the most. He has good natural drive to tug and chase as well as knowing when to turn it off and relax. He is well started in his foundations in rally, agility, and frisbee and is really showing a lot of promise. He has MAJOR hops for the disc and has great tracking/popping ability on the dock. In agility, he is focused and driven with a large stride. He finds lines well and is a dream to train with his level headedness and eager disposition.
At four months old, HotShot earned his Canine Good Citizen and Novice/Intermediate Trick titles! He loves to work and learns new behaviors in just a few repetitions. At six and a half months old, he earned his Rally Novice (RN) title with multiple 100s and earning an invite to the 2019 Rally National Championships! In 2020, he won his class with perfect 100's again earning his Rally Intermediate title and earning him an invite to the 2020 Rally National Championships! We hope to continue more in Rally and debut in Competition Obedience once he finishes his CH in the breed ring. Hot made his Dock Diving debut and earned his Senior title right off the bat. He is excelling in his scent work foundations and we hope to make his agility debut in 2021 -- we are in NO rush with this boy. He has recently started showing in frisbee and has put up some impressive scores, one of which almost earned him an invite in Time Trial with a sub 17second run!
At the end of 2020, Hot made his conformation debut. He took RWD to the Major followed by WD/BOW for a 5 point MAJOR WIN the next day. In a large entry of 19 dogs/bitches, and Hotshot being the only colored dog in a sea of black and white competition, we are thrilled with this honor! Thank you to judge Mrs. Cindy Meyer for recognizing his quality (Mrs. Meyer also awarded Pixel (Dare/Spryte) a major win over the summer in TN).
This litter was bred by my good friend Wendy Jordan/Wescot Border Collies and are Player's first grandkids! NV is a full sister to our talented little Glamour (making her half siblings to several other pups like Creature and River through Player) and Sharpie is a half brother to Hops (sire we have used in our program). Sharpie is also a cousin to our princess, Remedy, and an uncle to our co-owned Dream, Envy, Valor (Wish/Hops), and Cupcake (Spryte/Hops).
Stay tuned to watch how HotShot continues to grow in dog sports!
