It is with much sadness that we report the passing of Terzo. He was a true pioneer in the USA, winning in both the breed ring and in a variety of dog sport venues. We will miss you forever, little buddy.
Only months before his passing, he became the first Lagotto to earn a Utility Dog title in May 2018 (with 4 straight qualifying runs!). He also became the first to earn OTCH points, and OM points!! The next weekend, he earned his Novice Agility Standard title-with all first place runs!
TERZO with his new friend, Jordan Confer, at the 2016 LRCA Nationals. Terzo made the final cut of 9 dogs from the VETERANS CLASS!!! Does this look a 7 year old dog???
Terzo wins Best Veteran in Sweepstakes at the 2018 LRCA National Specialty. Under Italian judge, Andrea Langiani.
Terzo completes his CDX with a first place win
in Open A.
A lot of people think we should have named Terzo "Primo" instead! He has been the first in the States to achieve so many things.
