This is Total Dog Award Recipient, Multiple Best In Show Winner, International Champion, UKC Grand Champion, AKC Ch Ptd Suzie Q, RN, TT, TC, HIC, CGC and now CAX (Coursing Aptitude x 2). She is from our Flo/ Harry Potter litter of February 2006. We can't say enough about this exciting girl. She is five years old and is simply fabulous! Suzie finished in the Top Ten for GSD's in UKC for 2010. She is working towards her AKC Championship. She's earned her Rally Novice Title although that was much to slow paced for her enjoyment. She showed strong Herding Instincts in her herding instinct test. We are continually looking for competition for Suzie to enjoy. She successfully passed and earned her Temperament Tested Title in June 2009 in Columbus, GA under the American Temperament Test Society, and passed the GSDCA Temperament Test in 2010.
Suzie Q's date of birth is 02-10-2006.
Suzie Q became the first German Shepherd to earn the AKC Coursing Title, October 30, 2011, making her the first GSD to earn the title in both venues.
Suzie Q and Kira became the first German Shepherds to earn the CA Coursing Title in AKC in Marietta, GA under the Greyhound Association of North Georgia. AKC followed UKC by opening Lure Coursing to all breeds in February 2011.
On Sunday, July 11, 2010 at 0900 hrs, in Richmond Indiana, at an event hosted by the United Greyhound Association at the UKC Premier, Suzie Q became the FIRST German Shepherd ever to earn a Coursing Title! We can't say enough about Suzie Q. We thank the host club and UKC for approving Coursing for all breeds effective May 2010. Suzie Q and Kira will be going for her Coursing Excellent Title next.

Suzie Q is what we consider a "high drive" dog. She loves to be on the move. Suzie Q is pictured above on an official Lure Course in Richmond, Indiana where she made history in becoming the first German Shepherd to earn a Coursing Title. Up until May 1, 2010 Coursing had been a competition sport that only official Sighthounds were allowed to participate in. Suzie will be pursuing the Coursing Excellent Title next.
