2010 Akita Club of America
Ava won the first Award of Merit and Select Bitch
under breeder judge Rebecca Kestle, DVM.
"Ava" is a gorgeous brown with
black overlay. She finished easily expertly handled by Tuni Chaflin
on the east coast with three major wins. While at the 2009 Akita
National she won the following:
- Best in Futurity under breeder judge
- 1st in Open at the Pre-National
- 1st in 18-24 months at the National
- 2nd in 18-24 months at the Pre-National
- 4th in Open at the National
As you can see she is a beauty, lovely
angulation, gorgeous head, substance, strong topline and tailset. I
don't know what we could ask to change, except the color. Her energy
and personality are fantastic. She loves everyone and you can't help
but love her back. She is shown here at eighteen months old.
