Don’t Let His Name Fool You – Rowdy is Really a Cuddle-Bug

Rowdy Cuz E Iz CD BN RAE owned by Mary Patterson of St. Michael, MN

Mary brought Rowdy home when he was an 8-week-old puppy and started training soon after.

The now 6-year-old Shih-tzu – Poodle mix is “extremely smart and a wonderful performance dog,” Mary said. “I've never really cared for obedience until I started him. He loves it and makes it really fun for me.” Rowdy also competes in AKC Agility.

He earned the top title in AKC Rally – the Rally Advanced Excellent -  on April 4, 2015, at the Cambridge Minnesota Kennel Club trial.

“Rowdy is just a sweetheart. He loves to cuddle and give kisses,” Mary said. “His favorite thing to do, besides eat, is going for a walk. All in all, he's a great little guy. I think I'll keep him.”

Rowdy competes in AKC Rally through the AKC Canine Partners program for all dogs, including mixed-breeds and rescues.
