Oy! Didn't Let Injury Slow Him Down
MACH Kyndaara's Magical Me owned by Ronda & Scott Dillard of Nevada, TX
Oy! (yes, the exclamation point is part of his call name) is an 8-year-old Rat Terrier-Corgi mix who joined the rest of the “Dillard Corgi Crew” as a puppy.
His early agility career was cut short before his second birthday when an accident severely injured his left rear leg resulting in a femoral head osteotomy (FHO) and pins above the stifle.
“After a year of surgeries and therapy, Oy! resumed his agility career and in large part continues to maintain his conditioning by running around the farm barking at neighboring cows and orbiting the house when cats are on the roof,” Scott said.
Oy! went on to earn the highest title in AKC Agility - the Master Agility Championship (MACH). He remains in fine shape and continues to compete in AKC Agility through the AKC Canine Partners program for all dogs, including mixed-breeds. Oy! also is a recipient of the AKC Canine Good Citizen title.
