Zin was picked up as a stray at the age of 4 months and was adopted out and then returned several times before finding her forever home with Betsy and Gene. A very fast learner, Zin progressed to her first MACH with trainer/handler Steve Moon in less than a year.  Now, another year later, she is working her way to MACH5.  “Her high energy and challenging spirit have found a great joy and discipline in the sport of agility,” Betsy said. “This is Zin's first Invitational. What an amazing honor.”
