About Angus . . . (as written by Doris Avery)
Angus is our 3rd Boxer and is very much our "Wild Guy". He's taught us that we haven't seen it all yet, at home or in the show ring.  There
isn't a stuffed toy in our home that has survived his fury for more than 10 minutes.  He enjoys dining on grass, pine cones, firewood, bugs, etc.
earning another nickname "Hoover" (which he shares with his mother, Sawyer). Angus greets friends and family with a  "WooooWoo" (hello) that makes everyone smile.  Every morning is a new adventure for Angus – he's a real hoot to watch and to live with, and is the source of many, many stories!
