GCH Clarion Force of Nature HT CGC "Leo" 2005-2017
Grand Champion Clarion Force of Nature HT GCC
Leo will always be the truest collie. He arrived to us from upstate New York at nine weeks old as a "show prospect." Our family was living in Alaska and we had been active in the local kennel club for a few years. Scout wanted a collie and so did our entire family. He would be our first show dog. His breeder is the highly regarded Judie Evans of Clarion Collies, who has been breeding for over fifty years!
Leo finished his championship in exactly four shows, all back-to-back 4 Point Majors
Leo's notable accomplishments:
~ Champion at 10 months old
~ Two group placements before one
-Thirty-eight Best of Breeds
~ Two Group Wins
~ Multiple Group Placements
~ Three years, National JR's Top Twenty
~ Ninth AKC Collie Grand Champion
~ First male GCH in Alaska
~ Earned CGC and Herding Title
Along with the Collie Standard, Leo is the real life collie template, which all our collies are measured.
