2015 Purina Brace Beagle Champion Award
A high-achieving male Beagle named “Braveheart” captured back-to-back Purina Brace Beagle Champion Awards. 2XNBC-FCB Bee Lick Braveheart proved his keen rabbit tracking ability at a young age by winning the National Brace Championship in 2012, only weeks before turning 1 year old, followed by winning the Purina Brace Beagle Derby Award in 2013. “Braveheart has matured into an even better dog than when he was young,” said breeder-owner-handler Marty Parker of Taylorsville, Kentucky. The hound’s team is equally impressive. Together, Parker and co-owners Niki Happel of Pittsburgh, and Alfie Williams of Finleyville, Pennsylvania, have more than a century of experience in the sport. Braveheart is fueled by Purina® Pro Plan® SPORT Performance 30/20 Chicken & Rice Formula.
