AKC Bronze Grand Champion and CKC Grand Champion Red Branch d'Artagnan of the Ring was born on April 30, 2011. He was the seventh in a litter of four girls and four boys. Seven is a lucky number, and Dart has plenty of it! His life has taken him to British Columbia's beautiful Okanagan Valley, where he lives with his friends NV and Joy.
d'Art earned his CKC Championship on July 7, 2012. On October 7, 2012, he won the Puppy Sweepstakes and Best Bred-by-Exhibitor Irish Terrier at the Montgomery County National Specialty Show. To make a great year complete, d'Art finished 2012 as the top rated Irish terrier in Canada.
d'Art finished his American championship on April 13, 2013 and his American Grand Championship on April 12, 2014. d'Art was again ranked the top Irish terrier in Canada for 2014.
d'Art won Best of Breed at the 140th Westminster Kennel Club show on February 15, 2016.
He finished his Canadian Grand Championship on August 18, 2018.
We wish Joy and d'Art the best of luck in all their future endeavors.
