West Highland White Terrier 'Rondo' Fulfills Owner's Dreams


A spunky, full-of-himself attitude has given Multi-BIS Lotrando Sunshine Celebration a winning edge, says owner-handler Vanessa Skou of Mooresville, North Carolina. The No. 1 West Highland White Terrier all systems and No. 3 Terrier sent Skou halfway around the world to Slovakia to pick him up as a 9-month-old puppy. “I was fascinated by his sire, Un Pour Moi Du Moulin De Mac Gregor,” she says. “When I saw there was a litter by ‘Bastien,’ I inquired and got lucky.” In 2015, at almost 2 years of age, “Rondo” won the breed from the classes at two all-breed shows held during the prestigious all-terrier Montgomery County Kennel Club show weekend. He went on to take a Group Three at the esteemed Morris & Essex Kennel Club show, and a Group Two the following day at the Hatboro Dog Club show. Living in Hawaii at the time, Skou came out of retirement as a pro handler and moved to the mainland so she could campaign her dream Westie. Today, the 3-year-old male, co-owned with Zane Smith of Boerne, Texas, has won 22 Bests in Show. Rondo is fed Purina® Pro Plan® FOCUS Sensitive Skin & Stomach Formula
