'Hugo' Is No. 1 Bouvier des Flandres for Two Straight Years
A playful, confident Bouvier des Flandres named “Hugo” drives attention at dog shows with his sweet-spirited, joyful temperament. The No. 1 Bouvier in all systems in 2019 and 2020 and currently the No. 8 Herding dog, MBIS/MBISS GCHS G & W Avalon Ace’s Guardian Of Hugo CGC is handled by Larry Fenner of Elk Grove, California. The 4 ½-year-old male took back-to-back Bests in Show at the Greater Sierra Vista Kennel Club shows in November 2019 in Tucson, Arizona. Bred by June Guido and Sherrod McDaniel, both of Lewisville, North Carolina, and Jill Reifschneider of Patterson, California, Hugo is owned by Guido, McDaniel, Shelley Bowman of Lakewood, California, and Steve Wieczor of Lewisville, North Carolina. A breeder of Bouviers under the G & W prefix for 22 years, Guido says, “Hugo represents everything I love about this breed. He is friendly, has an easygoing attitude and loves all people.” The maternal side of Hugo’s pedigree out of McDaniel’s Avalon line has produced three previous No. 1 Bouviers: Hugo’s great-grandparents, CH Avalons Aurora and CH Ace’s Indelible Mark, and his uncle, MBIS/MBISS GCH Avalon Frontier Sleepinglady Webber. Hugo is fed Purina Pro Plan FOCUS Sensitive Skin & Stomach Salmon & Rice Formula and Purina Pro Plan SPORT Performance 30/20 Chicken & Rice Formula dog foods.
