A new addition to the prestigious Animaltalk Top Dog Awards this year was an agility category, sponsored by Bravecto South Africa. These super-quick canine achievers were recognised in three categories: small, medium and large.
Third place: medium
Taryn Murphy and her Miniature American Shepherd, R-Tic, ran into third place in the medium category. R-Tic, whose breed has only recently been recognised by KUSA, is not only a phenomenal canine athlete, but he is also the star of Taryn’s heart!
Taryn says that he is her third competing agility dog, and
the one who has achieved the most out of all her dogs. He is a dual grand champion, SA Agility Champion as well as a dual KUSA National Winner. Says Taryn: Although he has achieved a lot, he is first and foremost the champion of my heart. His love for simple things like swimming, Frisbee and trips to the beach is what really makes him special.
