Marley got off to a great start on her show career with two all breed Best in Match wins, one at 5 months of age and another at 11 months at the Spartan Mid-Winter Match, the largest area match which is held as a benefit for the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She is one of the sweetest, mellowest Bull Terriers I've ever owned, although like her grandmother Ada, she loves to stalk varmints.
Marley and her sister Jolie had a fantastic weekend at Silverwood 2008 in Orlando, Florida. Marley won the Colored Bitch class and went on to win the Silverwood Trophy. Sister Jolie was Reserve Colored Bitch and Best Opposite Sex at the BTCA specialty the next day.
Marley started out 2008 with a bang at the Elgin County KC shows in London Ontario. In two days she took Best of Breed over specials from the Bred by Exhibitor class and then on to a Group 2 and a Group 1 for a total of 10 Canadian points over the weekend. She finished her Canadian title at the Windsor Training and Tracking show in March, 2008 and finished 2008 as Top Bull Terrier in Canada.
Marley finished her AKC championship in May, 2008 and her Recognition of Merit title from the BTCA in August, 2008. In 2013, we started training for the new sport of Barn Hunting. Marley shows a natural talent for finding rats, once she masters the required climbing and tunneling, she'll do great!
