"Braddock" is pictured at 8 months old.  We are looking forward
to what the future brings for him both in and out of the ring.  He
is one of the sweetest boys we know and gorgeous to boot.   

Keep your eyes out for Braddock in the coming months.  He is
the one to watch, a dog with Size, Bone, Coat and Substance, and
to top it off, Clean Moving (Coming, Going and Sidegait).

Braddock was shown from January to May 2011, earning 3 Group
placements, large Breed wins and enough points for him to
finish the year in the Top 20, Breed and All-Breed and earning
his Grand Championship.

Braddock came home to grow up, get his Health Clearances and
wait until the time was right for him to come back out to the
show rings.

Tragically on September 20, 2013 we lost
Braddock to a blood clot 36 hours after he
underwent a Splenectomy.  We are devastated
and will never forget our Cinderella Man.

Thank you to all the judges who rewarded him
in the Breed ring and in the Group Ring.

Braddock was loved throughout the Akita World
and we greatly appreciate all the kind words
of consolation that we have received throughout
the Dog Show Community.
