Anza, December 2009

Anza has been awarded mulitple Challenges, Best of Breeds and age in Groups.

She has a very easy ground covering gait, pretty head (3 x Specialty Best Head awards)
good construction and personality plus.

In 2010 Anza earned her Field Champion title making her the youngest
Ridgeback in Australia to gain this award.

She was the top Ridgeback for 2010 & 2011 - lure coursing!

Below are some of her field trophies.

To date at Speciality level Anza has won a Best Opposite baby in Show,
2 Junior in Shows, reserve bitch, best footed, 3 best headed awards & a brace.

Under breed specialist Julie Bates(Gunthwaite/UK),
Anza placed 2nd out of 17 & was Best Headed Bitch at the Victorian Speciality, March 2011.

QLD Speciality June 2010 placed 2nd in a large Junior class.

In August 2011, Anza not only gained her Endurance title easily
but 2 weeks later added her Australian championship.
These titles along with her Field Championship
gave her her 3rd title in 12 months.

At the National Show in 2012, Anza again made the cut down to the last few for best headed bitch.

To finish 2011, Anza was awarded top Ridgeback - lure coursing for the second year in a row.

Congratulations Peter & Anza!

In August 2012, Anza became Australia's first Ridgeback to earn the title of Lure coursing of Merit.
To qualify for this title is very difficult and her seasons, show commitments and time out to raise her litter
hindered her progress but she excelled in the end turning out the best score ever recorded by a Ridgeback.

HUGE CONGRATULATIONS PETER & ANZA!
