Now in southern California!!
A REAL accomplishment; Trooper was the 4th Rat Terrier to earn his AKC CM title. CM stands for Certificate of Merit, a title earned for AKC FSS dog's accomplishment prior to be accepted into their respective group, ours being Terrier. We're so proud of this super duper Trooper, he's wonderful in so many ways.
HIP-HIP HORRAY!!!! Trooper has earned his AKC Championship, what a great accomplishment for him and he deserves every bit of it!!
Trooper earned his UKC Grand Championship July 2009 at 10 months of age, we're very proud of our boy.

This great boy came from Southern Sands Kennel in Savannah, Georgia.
We have definitely benefited from Lisa Sands' diligent breeding program and are very happy this boy was available to us. Thanks Lisa for this southern gent, he's a charmer for sure. Happy, friendly, outgoing, confident, smart, goofy, comedian, a super boy.
There's just no better boy, period
