Please meet Thunder, or as he is officially registered, Fleetwind Thunderstruck. Thunder was bred by Saluki-specialists and dog-lovers, Joy McFarlane and Elrena Stadler. He is the son of DeNiro (Int. Ch. Elamir Classic Design for Fleetwind), who is South Africa's top performing Saluki of all time. In 2018, DeNiro was #1 Saluki, #1 Hound and overall #3 Dog in South Africa, after being competitively shown at Championship Dog Shows all over the country.
Thunder has steadily been stepping into his father's paw prints and is showing a lot of promise. So far, at the young age of 2.5 years, Thunder has already won multiple placings within the Hound group. He has also been awarded Reserve Best in Show at numerous shows. Not only has Thunder crept into the hearts of many local supporters, breeders and fans - he also has a bunch of fans abroad. He oozes breed type, soundness and grace. As co-owner, I have been professionally handling Thunder and now that he is stepping into the big leagues, our dream is to start campaigning him in order to reach even greater heights.
In August 2018, 5 x Championship Shows will be held in East London, whereby Thunder has the opportunity to be shown under honourable judges from across South Africa. However, an endeavour like this can be quite expensive.
We would like to ask if you would please be so kind as to consider sponsoring our little, yet hopeful team, to fund our trip and dream. Sponsorship or donation in any form would be much appreciated. In return, we will be donating all prizes won at these shows, including food prizes, money, products etc. to the Fallen Angels Pet Rescue Centre (http://fallenangels.org.za/) in Cape Town, South Africa.
