Hunter


Hunter Tank, 10 years old
Son of Ken and Kathy Tank, Victory German Shepherds
Started showing two weeks after his 9th Birthday. His second show was the GSDCA Nationals in Jr Handling. with his big dark friend and canine mentor, Ch. Victory's Leviathan. Levi outweighed Hunter by 30 lbs, but the team never took a bad step..quite a performance.

At the tender age of nine he put his first Major Specialty Best Opposite Sex on our Ch. "Levi" His Uncle Bill Tank went Best of Breed with the soon to be Grand Victrix "Corey"

At 10 years he has competed and been awarded :
a 5 pt. Specialty Major Winners Dog, and on to Best Opposite Sex with his friend and hand-raised friend, "Clooney"

Specialty Major Best Opposite Sex
With his new friend whom he co-owns "Tarragon" their first weekend together, he took this completely untrained girl all the way to Reserve Best in Futurity, at the Mid Pac, one of the largest Futurities in the county.

At their next outing he and "RBIF Tarragon" were awarded Winners Bitch and Best of Winners for a Specialty four point major and a Major Specialty Reserve Winners Bitch

The saga continues, lol
He also shows and loves Jr. Handling, with our "Cinderella Dog" Nixie vd Sequoia Gigantea. They are a remarkable team, even more so since "Nixie" has over a 70% vision loss. She was rescued from Serbia from a neglectful dog broker, and for Nixie and Hunter is was love at first squeeze. Hunter genuinely enjoys Jr. Handling, and looks forward to it, each time out.

Hunter was raised in dogs. He has been going to dog shows and loving them since he was an infant. He co - owns dogs with his parents, and helps to raise and train puppies and adults alike. He has a multitude of dog show "aunties and uncles" that have watched him grow from a baby, into an accomplished young handler. They have also, watched over him, for which we are eternally grateful.

He also co - owns a (soon-to-be-recognized breed as of June 27, 2012) Miniature American Shepherd. He greatly looks forward to showing his lovely , remarkable little dog, named "Bo".

Hunter is an Honor Roll student and attends a Christian School. He is heavily involved in Yearbook and school press activities, and helping to mentor younger students with their studies.

He is highly accomplished in computer sciences, and is an phenom on virtually any computer (especially Apple) or wireless device you can imagine. lolol. Need help on a PC or Mac, this little guy is your man! lol.

He also really enjoys biking and running , and just being a 10 year old kid!! He has come so far in such a short time..we can't imagine what he will accomplish when he is the ripe old age of 11 !!
