2007 & 2008 AKC #13 Working Dog #2 breed and all breed Rottweiler.
Burton is one of the select few Rottweilers ever to make the AKC Top Twenty Working Dog ranking . With limited showing he was the AKC # 2 Breed and All Breed Rottweiler. Burton won multiple AKC and CKC Best in Show wins, multiple AKC Specialty Shows in Florida (Gulfstream Rottweiler Club ) California (Golden State Rottweiler Club and Associated Rottweiler Fanciers of Northern California ), Colorado (Mile High Rottweiler Club ), and Alaska. In 2007 he was ranked #2 Rottweiler in Canada although only shown one weekend- due to his winning the National Specialty and a BIS thereafter.
Burton is a Westminster and Eukanuba AOM and the sire of multiple BISS and BIS winners, AKC Top 3 ranked Rottweilers (both breed and all breed ) Eukanuba BOB winners and performance titled dogs from very limited breedings.
Burton's RN was attained with three 1st place wins with only 4 days of training with Teresa Bradley of Neu-Rodes. Teresa also piloted Burton to his CD with 3 straight Q's and placements (including a 195.5 and 1st in Novice B), his RA and an RE, the latter with all 1st place wins. Given the number of dogs he defeated when undertaking his performance titles, Burton was ranked the #1 RN dog in the United States for the 1st quarter 2010.
Burton was a substantial dog with type, bone and deep true mahogany color. He was a fabulous working dog who excelled in all venues and whose temperament was perhaps his most significant asset. Not only were Burton's parents CHIC (all 4 passing) but so too was he, and a number of his highly achieved littermates and a high percentage of his offspring. Frozen Semen is available to approved bitches of Merit .
