Taz was an absolutely amazing dog. He trialed in agility, rally, obedience and stock, showed in conformation, certified in human remains detection for search and rescue, certified as a therapy dog, and worked as my task-trained service dog until his passing.
It would take days to tell you how happy this dog made me. He was my partner in crime and the best friend anyone could ask for. He had a no quit attitude that made him a joy to work and live with. He also had a fabulous off switch, which made him a fantastic house dog and my best bed buddy. He was the epitome of the versatile Australian Shepherd, competing across all venues. He was also a fabulous producer, and I am beyond thankful for the contribution he has made to my program, but mostly I just loved this dog.
He had the type of heart that I strive for here at Gemfire, he would work until he dropped if I asked him to. I am so grateful to Shelly for allowing him to own me.
Taz also had 1 leg towards his JS-E, 1 leg towards his GS-O, 2 RA legs in AKC and 1 RA leg in ASCA. He had 5 reserves to 5 point majors.
