Not Just Another Pretty Face #6

Our “Not Just Another Pretty Face” series has been introducing you to dogs who are not just beautiful examples of their breed, but are dogs whose achievements underscore their ability to do the job for which their breed was created.

Meet “Tabitha,” a five year old Doberman Pinscher. Her picture at the left makes the conformation titles at the beginning of her name understandable, as well as her having been the AKC ‘s breed representative on its website until the site was revamped just recently. She’s also been a breed ambassador at “Meet The Breeds” in New York for the last five years. What can we say, Tabitha is a beauty queen.

Tabitha’s co-workers, however, are more familiar with her looking as she does in the photo below:

Tabitha’s full name is UDC/UKC CH., IABCA Int. CH., ICKC GrCH Blackwater’s Pindar Bewitched CD, BH, RA, Fpr1, OB1, VCX CGC. She is a certified working bomb dog whose “beat” is JFK airport working for a private security company.  Thanks to her owner/handler and partner, John, we can share a few more pictures:

Tabitha and John work to ensure our safety in public places, and we owe them our thanks. We offer a special thanks to John for putting titles at both ends of Tabitha’s name, and for sharing her with a public that needs to know that purebred dogs are not just pretty faces.
