The first ever Cane Corso Best of Breed judging for the 2011 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show took place today. This is the first time the Cane Corso breed is represented in this prestigious event. The dog who won the Best of Breed class is Orso’s first cousin, GCH Leonitis “The Big Show” Sargent, a blue Cane Corso related to Orso through his mother’s side. Orso’s mother, Alondra, is a littermate to Leonitis’ father, Ades. In other words, Leonitis’ father is brother to Orso’s mother, Alondra.
Leonitis’ win is very exciting for us and comes as great news just days before Orso is to officially begin his AKC show career! Congratulations to Leonitis, his breeder Erik Wofford of Phantom Corsos & his owners Chad and Masheli Sargent. Below is a photo of Leonitis from today’s Best of Breed judging – notice the resemblance to Orso’s body structure. It will be interesting to watch the rest of the judging tonight to see how Leonitis does in the Best of Working Group judging. Stay tuned…
