PIRATE IS a Specialty Best In Show, GDCA Hall Of Fame Dane & is still the ONLY GREAT DANE TO EVER HAVE BEEN RANKED IN BREED, OBEDIENCE, AGILITY & RALLY. He was CHOSEN by the CANINE HEALTH FOUNDATION as the FIRST GREAT DANE selected for the CHAMPION OF HEALTH AWARD --an OFA program to promote the "total purebred dog"--and he has his own page at OFA. PIRATE was born fall of 1998 and lived 10+ healthy years (we lost him the end of 2008). He was heart normal at 10 years, thyroid normal as a veteran, and is a participant in the Canine Health Foundation's DNA Repository program.

Pirate is AFAWK still the only Great Dane that has been ranked in conformation, agility, obedience & rally. He finished his Championship with back to back Majors from BBEx (Bred By). He was an easy dog to show & finished handily as a young adult, winning every weekend shown from start to finish, & has not only taken Breed wins, but is a BISS and Group winning Harlequin, & was in the Top 25 the year he finished--all breeder-owner-handled. Pirate was the first Excellent/Open agility titled Champion male in the breed & had his AXJ and two AX legs. He is also obedience titled & was ranked in the Top Five for Obedience in repeated years. Pirate was a GDCA Versatility Award winner like his dam & one of the select few Danes in the GDCA Hall of Fame. Pirate, like his sisters Picabo & Fanny, have been active TDI Therapy Dog volunteers for years.
