    [​IMG]Exemplary Companion Dog: "Bart," a Vizsla owned by Darcy Hodges of Brooks, Georgia Bart was only three years old -- a strong, young dog from a well-planned breeding that had already completed his AKC conformation championship – when he developed a limp during hunt and field season.
    The veterinarian found a lump on the top of his left shoulder and the x-rays revealed 80% of the scapula eaten away by cancer. Bart had his entire front left leg removed.
    But, Bart was a true working dog. In October 2008, only four months after his amputation and three weeks after completing chemotherapy, Bart earned his Senior Hunter title and continued to the Master Hunter level. There were times during their hunt tests when judges would look sympathetically at the poor girl and her three-legged dog, but sympathy soon changed to awe as many were moved, often to tears, by Bart's courage and determination. Bart earned his Master Hunter title ten months after his amputation and became the first Vizsla in history to have completed the title with three legs.
    In the summer of 2010, Darcy and Bart were invited to visit with the Wounded Warriors in Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. Later that fall, the Wounded Warriors came to Atlanta and watched Bart compete in a field trial. Most recently, nearing his eighth birthday, Bart ran fast and hard during a guided hunt with the Wounded Warriors, inspiring soldiers that had returned home without all of their limbs but were overcoming their battle scars.

    Evening all:
    Neat story about the dog. A buddy of mine has a Doberman with a crippled leg from birth. He carries it out in front of him, and gets around on three legs. They were going to put him down, but my buddy took him. He ended up with a great dog, and the dog has a good home. That is one lucky dog!
