Thunder is available by private treaty to approved bitches. Hip, elbow, eye and cardiac certifications required for consideration.
Thunder is White boy from the Cara x Jackson, Success, Litter. He was born on November 2, 2014 and is the Pick Male from this litter that will stay here at Sarron.
I love this boys' substance, his coat, his headpiece- and his attitude. I think he will be even better than his Sire! Watch his page for updates and photos as he matures.
Thunder is growing up quite nicely. :) As of Oct 2015 - Thunder has 6 pts toward his championship - and this is even after I have handed him off all summer so that
I could show his half brother. Poor Thunder. I did show him myself the beginnig of Sept 2015 and he picked up his first major at the Clermont County Shows.
Thunder is an absolute joy to be around. He has a rock solid temperment and is right around 25" tall at 10 months of age. He has tons of coat, a great bite, full dentition,
a long tail and an effortless gait. I have such high hopes for this boy... I think he will pick right up in his fathers "paw steps" once he matures.
Between showing Thunders' older brothers and my girls, Thunder was finally able to compete in a puppy group at the Delaware Ohio KC shows the last weekend of
October 2015 - he is such a good boy. He took Best Puppy/WD/BOW that day, went into the puppy group and took a Puppy Group 1!!! YEAH THUNDER!!! I have very
high hopes for this boy once he matures. :)
WOW!!! What a HUGE weekend Thunder and I had in Louisville in March 2016! Thunder took Winners Dog and Best of Winners on Thursday for a 5 pt major! Then
he took Best in Sweepstakes at the Speciality on Friday - and followed up with another Winners Dog and Best of Winners ribbon for another 5 pt major to finish
his CHAMPIONSHIP!!! WOOO HOOO!
BUT - HE DIDN't STOP THERE! On Friday he also took Best of Breed OwnerHandled and went to the OH Group - where he took OH Herding Group 1 under one of my
FAVORTIE judges - Mr. Butch Schullman! It was late on Friday, but we showed in OH Best in Show - and THUNDER WON OH BEST IN SHOW!!!! WOO HOO!!!! Just like
his daddy!!!! Following in Jacksons' pawprints!!! SO PROUD of this young dog.
I bumped Thunder up to Best of Breed for Sat and Sunday - and on Saturday at the supported entry, his first time out as a "special"
Thunder took Best of Breed from a very TOUGH lineup!!! I was over the moon!!! Love this little man and I look forward to the fun
we will have as he matures! Thanks to all for the lovely compliments on Thunder!
Thunder has been out about one weekend a month between March - Sept 2016. He picked up his first Herding Group placement in over Memorial Day weekend in 2016, as well

Thunder has done really well in 2019 so far!! Thunder earned his Rally Advanced title and qualified for the Rally National Championships this year with great scores. Thunder went out for one day in conformation
in March and picked up a nice breed win and Group 4!. Thunder was entered at the BSCA National this year in several venues. He finished his RA title at the National. He also qualified in Novice Obedience at
the National. Then, Thunder took BEST OF OPPOSITE Sex at the Regional Specialty the day before the National. THAT WAS A HUGE WIN!!!! He finished up the National week by making the first cut in males
and also being recognized with a Versatility Award at the National.
Thunder went to a show in April and took at nice Breed win, followed by a Herding Group 4 and OH Herding Group 1. He went to two shows in May and Best of Breed both days there and took a Herding Group 3 and Herding
Group 2, respectively. He also picked up OH Group 1 and OH Group 2 at the Cincy shows. He went to 2 shows in June and Best of Breed at both of those. HE TOOK AN AWESOME HERDING GROUP 1 and Herding Group 2 that
Weekend!!!! Thunder only needs 6 points to achieve his Show Dog Hall of Fame and 24 points for his Silver Grand Championship. We will be trying to wrap those up this fall. Thunder also earned his BCAT
(First title in FastCat in May 2019)! Thunder loves to run ...actually he loves to do anything with me!
Thunder and I went to the Support Entries at the Canfield shows in August 2019. Thunder showed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday - he took Best of Breed/OH BoB on Friday and Saturday and Best of Opp/OH Bob on Sunday.
Thunder then went on to earn an OH Herding Group 2 on Friday AND a regular Herding Group 4!!! WOO HOO!!!! Then on Saturday he picked up an OH Herding Group 1 and a regular Herding Group 2!!! DOUBLE WOO HOO!!!
These were deep groups - with some of the top herding dogs in the country participating - so it was quite a thrill!!! These two placements also completed the Showdog Hall of Fame requirements for Thunder!!! He
finished up the weekend with another OH Herding Group 1 on Sunday - which should also help to propel him toward being #1 for Lifetime OH Points!!! Thunder picked up 15 more points toward his GCHS and now he needs
9 points to complete that achievement. We are still working this fall to finish his GCHS and to hopefully secure #1 in Lifetime OH Points.
