Shazam!

Adopted from: Jeff. City Animal Shelter, MO
Adoption Date: July 2012

A shelter volunteer contacted us about Shazam after one of our shows. We took one look at her playing with a toy in the shelter play yard, and we knew there wasn’t anything “plain” about this little dog named Jane. Within a week, she was on her way to join the team, and now she thrills audiences everywhere she goes with her super speed, big leaps and sweet disposition. The sky is the limit for Shazam!

 

Bam-Ba-Lam

Adopted from: a private adoption
Adoption Date: August 2012

One of the oldest dogs we have ever adopted, Bam-Ba-Lam was 5 years old when she joined our family.

Bam’s favorite part of the show is when she has the opportunity to interact with her fans. Come meet Bam after a show!

Superstar Ba-Ba-Lu is another extremely versatile member of our team. Thanks to the wonderful work of Arizona Cattle Dog Rescue, she came to us with a great foundation for training. She is an impressive dock-diving dog, and in 2016 we expect she will make her agility debut!

MuchoMucho

Adopted from: Glen Highland Farm, NY
Adoption Date: September 2013

Mucho (Too Much) was surrendered to Glen Highland Farm after his previous owners reported that he was “over-herding” the livestock on their cattle farm. With just a little work on self-control and the wonderful game of frisbee, he has evolved into a fun young dog with lots of potential. Like many border collies, Mucho takes his work on the team very seriously.

 

HI-HOHi-Ho

Adopted from: KC Pet Project, KC, MO
Adoption Date: January 2014

mamboMambo

Adopted from: Bully Project, NYC
Adoption Date: September 2015

Mambo spent the first year of his life in several homes and foster homes in New York City. A true terrier, he was a “bit much” for the city life. Luckily, Mambo ended up with Bully Project in NYC, who recognized his desire to work. Some friends put us in touch with Bully Project and the rest is history. This scruffy dude loves to work and play as much as he loves to give hugs. Look for him as the star of one of our meet ‘n’ greets in the near future!

In Memoriam

Clementine

Adopted from: Natural Pet Center, Fargo, ND
Adoption Date: February 2002

Clementine passed away in May 2014. Superstar Clementine’s career was long and her talents were endless. She traveled with the team until her final day and passed away after a short battle with hemangiosarcoma. Clementine was a Master Agility Dog, a Master Jumper (dock diving), and a 7-time world finalist in canine disc. She held the world record for the longest jump by an Australian Cattle Dogs in dock diving for 6 years.
