Ponzi is just what we were hoping for from our liter of Pepe X Luna. His is the type we adore. He reminds me of his great grandsire Khyber more than any other male we've bred, and is just as sweet and versatile. But a lot goofier.
Highlights of his show career so far are BIS at the 2019 AKC NOHS Finals with the AKC National Championship show, BOB at the 1019 Empire Saluki Specialty under Jackie Harrington, BOS at the 2016 Saluki Club of America Eastern Regional under Tracey-Larkin Cox, and several other specialty BOS, Select and AOM wins. He finished with AOM and WD at the 2015 SCOA Eastern regional under Roberto Forsoni, BOW at C-FLASH specialty under Peter Machen and WD at C-FLASH support under Francisco Chapa.
He is also a Multi-Group First winner, including Group 1 at the Chicagoland Hound Club show, and a Reserve Best in Show Winner. Ponzi also has a Hound group Best of the Best under Susan Sprung.
He is a Best in Field winner and he won the Triathlon at the 2017 SCOA National! We were thrilled he was named the American Saluki Association Dog of the Year for 2016, following the example set by his sire, Pepe and dam, Luna.
Ponzi has his BN and NAJ titles and legs toward his RN, CD and Open Jumpers titles, and is halfway to his ASFA FCH title. The TKA stands for Trick Dog Advanced!
Ponzi is a multiple NOHS Best in Show winner and was the #1 Saluki for 2017 NOHS. He ended 2019 as the #2 NOHS dog of all breeds.
OFA heart (echo) and eyes normal.
Ponzi is the sire of two litters, out of GCHB Tributes Ringside Scandal and GCH El Ubaid Ultimate Challenge, both born June, 2017. His puppies include several Best in Field and supported show point winners.
