Mendo was born at precisely noon on a Friday, which was very convenient for his breeder, Sherrie Todd. He caught Sherrie's eye from a very young age and when I came looking for a pet puppy, Sherrie convinced me that he was the show pup for me. Mendo finished his championship very quickly, expertly handled by co-breeder Helen Hayek. All of his championship points were earned in the extremely competitive California show rings. Mendo went on to complete his grand championship within six months.
I am so proud of my amazing boy. Mendo is the most loving, go-with-the flow, even tempered dog. Now he is ready to pass the torch so keep your eyes out for the Mendo kids rocking the show ring!
Mendo is a total ham in the conformation ring but his true passion is lure coursing. His intense prey drive and strong form keeps him competitive on the coursing field. Mendo has even earned a Best in Field (BIF) - pictured to the left is Mendo running for BIF with a Irish wolf hound.
In January 2013, Mendo won Best of Breed at the Kennel Club of Palm Springs with co-breeder David Hayek’s skilled handling. What a great start to the year, followed by more breed wins and multiple group placements! With select showing limited to Southern California during 2013, Mendo continued winning and achieved the #16 spot in the united states for the year.
