About My Foundation Bitch – Ruby

 My foundation bitch, Ruby was chosen from a dam named Reign that was joyous and confident in nature, full of drive for hunting, retrieving and swimming, beautiful and intelligent, once earning High in Trial in Obedience and Best in Specialty Show on the same day.

In time Ruby became the most titled Weimaraner in the history of the breed with well over 50 titles to her credit, and Championships and advanced titles in every competitive discipline. Ruby made Weimaraner history by earning Show, Field and Obedience Championships to become the breed’s first AKC Triple Champion Weimaraner along with earning advanced titles in tracking, agility and retrieving competition in both Canada and the United States.

Some of her career competition highlights include winning the Western Classic Open Derby stake, placing 2nd in her Show Futurity class at the National Specialty show, winning a CKC Best Puppy in Sporting Group, placing 4th in the National Amateur Gun Dog Championship and earning a top score in obedience competition of 199.5/200. However Ruby’s true passion always remained real life hunting where she was an exceptional dog for both upland and waterfowl work.

Ruby not only excelled as a competition dog but also as a producer where she has broken records, being to date the only Weimaraner to have produced multiple Champions in every discipline: Show, Agility, Obedience, Tracking and Field, and also one dog, Diesel, that went on to earn Championships in all five disciplines.  She is also one of the very few Weimaraners to have earned both Field Register of Merit and Bench Register of Merit designations in recognition of the success of her offspring in Field and Show competition. Ruby’s descendants have carried on her tradition of excellence in show and performance events of all kinds. Ruby was inducted into the Weimaraner Club of America Hall of Fame in 2012 and her son Diesel was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2018.
