Pitbull a Winner in 2007 Purina Incredible Dog Challenge

A Pitbull named Wallace is the 2007 Purina Incredible Dog Challenge Freestyle Flying Disc National Champion.  Wallace, the only pitbull who competed in the finals, was adopted from a shelter where he had been scheduled for euthanasia by his owners Clara and Andrew Yori of Rochester, Minnesota.

I got to meet Clara, Andrew (aka Roo) and Wallace this year.  They’re fine folks and he is a sweet dog.  Its inspiring to see what love and hard work can do for a dog, and Clara and Roo have put a lot of both into Waz.

A sad aside to this wonderful story is this quote from Clara, “We actually have to be careful about what cities we go to compete in because some cities don’t allow pit bulls so we always have to check that before we go.”

Click on the screen shot above to see a video report on Wallace from KAAL TV:    

Go to the gallery and check out the Rocky-style training video.  It’s adorable – and inspiring.
