Nova was a Group 3 winner in a puppy match at just 4 months old. He is major-pointed. Nova loathes showing so he was retired because we care more about our dogs than titles. Nova is certified to run ASFA lure coursing and is a Qualified Courser in AKC. He loves chasing the "bunny"! He is also the first Ibizan Hound to ever be a member of the Hounds of East Fairhaven.
Nova is the first Ibizan Hound to ever achieve the TCP title in ASFA. This requires the same placements and points as an ASFA field championship title and he had to beat many dogs to earn it. He ran in singles for part of his career while we worked through some grumbliness with other boys. There were many tears shed the day he got to run with his littermate in competition. He earned his SC as a senior in veterans.
Nova can be summed up in one catchphrase: "Life is YAY!". He is a very sweet, goofy, comical, snuggly, happy dog. He had a journey to make when he came to us, and it was long, but when he got to his destination it was very special. He is a natural hunter and spends the majority of his day looking for prey. He's a fantastic mouser and wants to try barn hunting in the near future. Everybody loves Nova in the house and he has matured into quite the marshmallow that loves everyone.
