Tchoum gets his first 3 points toward his AKC championship. AKC rules require a dog to earn a minimum of 15 points to become a United States Champion. The 15 points must include at least two ‘”Major Win’s” and be awarded by different judges… After his open class placement at the Kentucky specialty, now this well deserved winner’s dog is on his way — Thank you Mrs. Patti A. Long Smith for liking our boy.
