Pender’s Got A Lotta Moxie CD RAE owned by Tom & Natalie Pender of Milwaukee, WI
Tom and Natalie adopted Moxie, an American Pit Bull Terrier, from the Wisconsin Humane Society in 2007 when she was a 12-week-old puppy.
“Right from the start she was a very sweet puppy and to this day she loves to cuddle and be near her people-parents as much as possible,” Natalie said.
Being a then two-dog household and avid dog training enthusiasts, the Penders soon jumped into basic obedience training with Moxie. She quickly earned her AKC Canine Good Citizen award and did so well in training that they decided to enter her into competition.
In August 2010, Moxie began competing in AKC Rally and quickly earned her RN, RA, and RE titles. She also earned the AKC Obedience title of Companion Dog on March 24, 2012, and earned her RAE on Jan. 5, 2013, at the Western Waukesha Dog Training Club trial.
Moxie has since also earned the AKC Canine Good Citizen Advanced title!
“Moxie and the Penders are grateful to be able to compete in AKC Rally competitions and look forward to future accomplishments,” Natalie said.
