1st place Small Dog and 3rd place Top Dog Award, World Dog Surfing Championships 2019
Before I met my new forever pawrents, I was living on the streets of So. Central LA five years ago. A kind human found me and took me to a rescue shelter, Fur Baby Rescue, So Central LA.
My new pawrents rescued two other dogs and one became a champion surf dog, Kihei aka TeamKiheiSurfDog. He retired in 2016. Rest in pawadise Kihei 2020.
My pawrents provided me with a lot of opportunities to explore my potential from agility, dock diving to lure coursing. But, maybe I was destined to be a surFUR? My brother Kihei was a champ. Taking baby steps, they introduced balance and water training, it took over a year and a half. In 2018, I entered my first solo competition, I didn't do well at all. My pawrents didn't give up on me and continued to work with me and they hired a personal trainer, Nikki Myers CPDT-KA, to get my terrier personality under control. She's pawsome! In 2019, I became a champion surf dog taking first place in my division in three competitions from NorCal to SoCal, my personal Triple Crown, dedicated to the legendary surfer and waterman, Mike Doyle RIP 2019.
