1st AKC Coursing Ability Excellent:

Creek Ridge Found in a Pickle CAX RN & Terry Lane of Peachtree City, GA

Pickle was just a small puppy sitting in the middle of a road when Terry spotted him, stopped, and saved his life.

“He was ugly and had adolescent mange. A friend of ours saw the puppy and said, ‘Boy you are in a pickle.’ The name stuck,” he said.

The name may have stuck, but not his appearance. Pickle grew into “a very handsome, smart and loving dog.” His greatest love in life was coursing, Terry said.

Pickle became the first All-American Dog to earn the Coursing Ability Excellent (CAX) title for passing the test 25 times on April 15, 2012, at a Coursing Ability Test hosted by the Greyhound Club of North Georgia in Perry, GA. He also was one of the first dogs of any breed to take home the honor.
