Breeder: Friederike Honstetter
Willow was imported along with her litter sister, Belle, from Betcha-Katcha Kennels in Germany. She began her LGRA racing career in 2006 and was the #1 racing MA from 2006 to 2007. Willow finished her racing championship in 2009, the second MA in the states to do so.

Willow has also enjoyed success in the show ring on her limited outings to dog shows. At her very first Rarities (NAKC) show she won winners bitch back to back in all three shows.

She attended her first UKC shows in April of '09 and not only won Best of Breed three times but went on to earn her very first Best in Multi-Breed Show! Willow is the very first MA to earn this award on the UKC show circuit and defeated some of the top dogs in the nation to do so! She is a natural show girl and definitely enjoys the attention. Willow finished her UKC conformation championship in style at the Norcal APBT Club's spring shows in May '09.

When she's not racing or lure coursing, Willow loves to romp around the pasture with her nephew, Gator, and the other hounds at Tuzvihar Kennels. Once she's had her fill of pasture play, she can be found soaking up the sun out on the grass or on the deck.
