GCH CH RODEO's Bold Highlander at Crown "Connor"

Connor is our singleton puppy from Tebow x Nexpa. He is growing up with his co-owners, Mike and Amber Rusk of Crown Kennels in Indiana.

Connor is a sweet loving boy with huge substance and tons of bone. In the words of breeder judge Cathy Cooper, "this is the perfect head - he is an asset to our breed for his head alone". At two 1/2 years old, Connor is still growing up as he will be a large dog and has more filling out to come. He completed his Grand Championship at age 2 years old with a very competitive Best of Breed win in Jackson, Michigan, under respected Bernese Mountain Dog Breeder/Judge Denise Dean. As of age 2 1/2 at March 2019, he is more than 1/2 way to his Bronze Grand Championship.

Can't wait to see what the future has in store in 2019 for our big sweet boy for his first full year in the specials ring.
