UKC RBIS CH / AKC Multiple Group Placing GCHS
Top Notch Light Up The Night NAP NJP HSAs RN CGC TKN
Born July 17, 2017 at Top Notch Border Collies by Wescots Scotaidh At Pemjoy out of Top Notch Shadow Kissed bred by Angela Efinger.
Pyro is a fearless dog with a personality to die for. He's never met a stranger: child or adult! He's not soft but rather undeterred and strong willed when it comes to work and play. His head piece is beautiful and expressive. He is very driven when herding sheep and shows great potential in the field as well as the show ring. His movement is hands down one of his strongest qualities.
Exclusively handled by his owner Savannah, this team has accomplished so much in just a small amount of time of showing. Pyro began his show career in June of 2018, quickly finishing his championship and earning a spot in the ribbons at the AKC National Championship that same year. He was campaigned throughout 2019, achieving Top Ten Breed and All-Breed with multiple group placements along with making it to the final cut at Westminster 2020. The rest of 2020 has seen this team earning performance titles and beginning herding lessons which quickly led to their Started A Sheep title. The future is bright for this pair and we can't wait to see what else #TeamPyro accomplishes!
