Dior – UCH Sophia Tigrato Dior of Forest Lakes

Dior is a stunning dark pointed reverse brindle. She was evaluated at 5 months by a mentor with 30+ years of experience. Dior received glowing feedback including strengths of: squareness, head, neck, chest, top line, rear angulation, shelf, and tail set as well as the statement, “if your goal is to improve on your multi-colored structure, this is the girl to do it.” During her evaluation, Dior also demonstrated the temperament needed to be successful in the show ring. 

Dior debuted at Premier Nationals in June 2022, winning her class and Best Female!! She was absolutely perfect in the ring. On her 4th day of showing, at 10 months and 1 day, she earned her UKC Champion title – and one of the judges commented that she is “elegant”.  She attended Puppy Obedience I and shows great promise for Rally. Dior has a bright future ahead!

She is clear for all identified genetic diseases found in the breed as well as 204 other genetic diseases. We look forward to completing her final health testing by the time she reaches 2 years of age. 

D.O.B. 10/6/2021

Strengths:  carriage, squareness, chin/underjaw, eyes, head, neck, chest, rib spring, shoulder layback, topline, feet, tail set, rear angulation, coat
