Labrador Retriever 'Mickey' Is 2016 National Retriever Champion
A hard-charging 8-year-old male black Labrador Retriever called “Mickey” propelled through 10 challenging land and water series to win the 2016 National Retriever Championship this past November in Bonham, Texas. NFC-AFC Windy City’s Mighty Mouse, a four-time National Finalist, topped 97 retrievers to give owner-handler Charlie Hines of Hinsdale, Illinois, a 27-year veteran of the sport, his first National win after having handled 13 National Finalists. “Mickey has a positive attitude,” Hines says. “He is a consistent performer who would run successfully for anyone bringing him to the line.” Mickey is fueled by Purina® Pro Plan® SPORT Performance 30/20 Salmon & Rice Formula.
