GCH Aces-Up Rock U Like A Hurricane AOM
US's Top Twenty Akita 2019
Award of Merit Winner @ Akita National Reg Specialty 2019
Storm is a son of Magnum (CH Regalia's CR Crossfyre), UK's Top Stud of 2010, & our foundation bitch, Dream (GCH Redwitch Especially For You).
Growing up, Storm is always a happy, affectionate, and fearless boy full of energy. The first time out at 5 months, he was shown in the 4-6 Month Beginner Puppy competition at one of the largest shows in Tucson, AZ. He took Best of Breed and Working Group 3rd out of a strong lineup.
Storm went to his first show during the National week in 2017. Out of a large and very competitive 12-18 month dog class, he was placed 3rd all week. After National, he went to the awesome handler, Nicky King, for further training. The first time out with Nicki, he swept the shows by taking Best of Winners with major.
Then he went to one of the most competitive and prestigious shows, the AKC National Championship cluster shows in Orlando, FL. Out of the 5 shows he attended, Storm took two Winners Dog with one Best of Winners and three Reserve Winners Dog and finished his championship in style!
The first time out as a special turning three years old, Storm didn't let us down! Shown beautifully by the Aussie breed holder, the amazing handler, Megan Hof, Storm took Best of Breed over Top Ten Akita who's also much older. For the first month of showing, Storm and Megan took 10 Best of Breed over multiple top ten Akitas to reach US's Top 10 Chart!
Storm then went to his first National as a special and did IMPRESSIVE! He was rewarded 1st AOM at the first regional specialty and was one of only three who made the cut at all four specialties including National. He also received rave reviews by the breeders and handlers that we were so thankful of.
