A Little About Abu
Abu was entered in his first shows the weekend of May 8, 2010, and by July 25, 2010 he completed his American Kennel Club championship. Along the way he had many nice wins, including a Breed win over several Specials, including a Top Twenty ranked dog.
Abu then went up to Canada where he finished his championship in three shows; the first day Winners Dog at the Western Great Dane Club of BC Specialty, then Best of Breed from the classes the following two days at the Fraser Valley Kennel Club all-breed shows.
