‘Mike’ Is The 2017-2018 Purina Top Field Trial Bird Dog


An athletic 3-year-old white-and-orange male Pointer named “Mike” ruled the open all-age circuit to win the Purina Top Field Trial Bird Dog Award. Handled by pro Mark McLean of Moultrie, Georgia, Touch’s Mega Mike is owned by Eddie Sholar of Leesburg, Georgia, and Ted Dennard of Haddock, Georgia. “Mike is one of the most consistent bird dogs I have ever handled,” says McLean. “His style, range and supreme ability to find birds set him apart from the competition.” The standout bird dog placed in eight stakes, winning five of them.
