Neo has overwhelmed us with his success in the ring and as a prepotent sire. He embodies the essence of the Afghan Hound. Neo is the sire of many champion offspring including group placing, specialty pointed, and specialty BIS winners. He is the sire of the 2008 #1 Afghan in Norway, Amazing Amanda. Neo returned to the states after being in Sweden for 8 months. Handled in Europe exclusively by Camilla Tell-Collinge, Neo was #1 Afghan in Sweden 2008 and Norwegian Winner 2008 and 2009.
In a select appearance for 2009
Neo wins the breed 3 days in a row and Group 4 in Louisville March 2009.
Neo is semi-retired and thoroughly enjoying his time on the couch while his kids are doing all the work but if you are lucky you might see him on a rare occasion presented for fun.
