December 2019
Wow! What a great ride! We are excited for all that Team Ruger accomplished in 2019 (in order) –  Rally Novice, Champion, Canine Good Citizen, Novice Trick Dog, Health Award of Merit, Dual Award Excellence, Best in Specialty Show, Grand Champion, Midwest Best Male & Best Opposite Maturity.
We would like to thank all the judges that awarded Ruger these great wins.  We couldn’t have asked for a better dog for our first show GSD.  Ruger has won under great competition in both the All Breed and Specialty Show rings.

We thoroughly enjoyed all that we were blessed with in 2019.  Special thanks to our breeder/mentor/co-owner/partner/friend, Terry Rock, our amazing handler, Jeffrey Pyle, and all the friends that supported us on this journey.  Looking forward to the future.  Whatever that may be.

Thank you!
Tony and Laura Marrocco
