Treeing Walker Coonhound Named 'Ty' Is a Big Show Winner
An outstanding 3-year-old male Treeing Walker Coonhound named “Ty” is making breeder-owner-handler Lisa Hunziker of Murphysboro, Illinois, very proud with multiple wins at major bench shows. GCH ‘PR’ Red Eagle Capital City is a standout with his “great conformation and correct movement,” says Hunziker, who has been breeding dual-purpose Treeing Walker Coonhounds for 20 years. “I am always trying to breed for better. It took years to get him.” Among his 2019 wins, Ty was the Treeing Walker Breeders & Fanciers Overall Bench Show Male Champion, breed winner at the Purina National Championship, ACHA (American Coon Hunters Association) World Bench Show winner, and King of Show at the Heartland Classic. In 2018, Ty was the Overall Champion at the AKC (American Kennel Club) World Show and at Southeast Treeing Walker Days. He won Best in Show at the UKC (United Kennel Club) Winter Classic in 2017 as a 1-year-old. Sired by 3XWSHOWCH GRCH CCH Red Eagle Comin’ 2 Your City, Hunziker’s first all-breed Best in Show winner, out of Second Wind’s Stroll for Gold, Ty represents the ninth generation of Red Eagle Treeing Walker Coonhounds she has bred. The head-turning hound is fed Purina Pro Plan SPORT Performance 30/20 Chicken & Rice Formula.
