Outstanding Nite Hunt Coonhound Award

Although small for her breed, a 3-year-old female Treeing Walker, called “Flirt,” dominated the 32nd annual Purina Nite Hunt Award competition.

GR NITE CH ‘PR’ Flatrock Stylish Flirt gave co-owner and handler Kevin Phillips of Columbus, Ga., his third Purina Award, taking the lead five months into the yearlong program. “Flirt was unstoppable,” Phillips says. The winner of 17 of the 18 events she entered, including seven state championships, Flirt outperformed 4,409 hounds to win the award. She is co-owned by Chuck Baker of Seale, Ala. Flirt is fueled by Purina ProPlan SPORT Performance 30/20 Formula.
