CH NUFOREST YOU TAKE MY BREATH AWAY MSB, CGC, TKN 

“Maverick”

(Breeder:  Susan A. Buck & William F. Buck, Jr.)

(Owner:  Allison Groseclose)

 
We were thrilled to get the news from Allison about her handsome young Dachshund

 
Dear Bill and Susan.  He did it! He went BOW and BOS for a 3pt major on Friday at my home kennel club’s show! He is such a star! Thank you both SO much for the opportunity to own a Champion!  ~~ from Allison Groseclose as she announced Maverick’s final win to earn his AKC Championship.  
 
(Note from Susan: Not just another pretty face!  Allison and Maverick have been busy … besides earning his AKC CHAMPIONSHIP they have also done other types of training.  “CGC” is the American Kennel Club title for CANINE GOOD CITIZEN, and “TKN” is the AKC Title for TRICK DOG NOVICE.   “MSB” at the end of Maverick’s name stands for miniature smooth brindle, “BOW” is Best of Winners, “BOS” is Best Opposite Sex)
