Male Rottweiler. AKC Top Twenty Working Dog.

Burton is one of the select few Rottweilers to make the AKC Top Twenty Working Dog List.  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, California (Golden State and NorCal), Colorado (Mile High RC), and Alaska. Burton is a Westminster and Eukanuba AOM and the sire of multiple BISS and BIS winners, Eukanuba BOB winners and performance titled dogs from very limited breedings. Not to be ignored, Burton's RN was attained with 3 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 3 placements, 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 was he, a number of his highly achieved littermates and a high percentage of his offspring.
