No. 1 Chow Chow All Systems in 2019 & 2020 Is Dreamland's Game Changer
The friendly, outgoing temperament of a 4-year-old red rough male named “Thor” took him to the top as the No. 1 Chow Chow all systems in 2019 and 2020. Bred by Dreamland Chow Chow breeders Michael and Linda Brantley of Lubbock, Texas, and Ayran Hong Chow Chow breeder Paulo Clerice of Araraquara, Brazil, MBIS/MBISS GCHG Dreamland’s Game Changer has a Chinese sire and Brazilian dam whose pedigree includes American-bred Dreamland dogs. Thor has earned three Bests in Show and three Reserve Bests in Show as well as 10 Bests in Specialty Show. He placed fourth in the Non-Sporting Group at the 2020 Westminster Kennel Club show. “As a puppy, Thor was always in everyone’s face wanting to play, which is atypical behavior for the strong-willed, independent breed,” says Michael Brantley, the handler. “That gregarious energy carried into show rings where he made you look at him.” Honored as the 2013 AKC Non-Sporting Breeders of the Year, the Brantleys have bred Chows since 1988, producing more than 200 champions including 30 Best in Show winners. Owned by Michael Brantley and Cliff Chandler of Lubbock Texas, Thor is Chandler’s first show dog after many years owning pet Chows. The powerful male is fed Purina Pro Plan Adult Complete Essentials Shredded Blend Chicken & Rice Formula dog food.
