2014-2015 Purina Top Shooting Dog Award
Surging ahead at the season’s end, a white-and-orange Pointer called “Duke” outperformed 313 dogs to capture the 33rd annual Purina Top Shooting Dog Award. Handled by the 2014-2015 Purina Top Shooting Dog Handler, veteran pro George Tracy of Glenville, Pennsylvania, Sugarknoll War Paint won five major stakes the last four weeks of the season, earning 2,080 points. “Winning the Purina Award proves your dog is a consistent champion, not a flash in the pan,” Tracy says. “Duke’s heart, brain, style, and nose sets him apart from the competition.” Bred by Joan LaBree of Smithville, Georgia, Duke is co-owned by Peter and Christine DelCollo of Pamplin, Virginia, with Allen Linder of Livingston, Tennessee. The 6-year-old male is fed Purina® Pro Plan® SPORT Performance 30/20 Chicken & Rice Formula.
