Proton – Staffordshire Bull Terrier

About Proton

December 27, 2003 – September 8, 2015

“Canadian Champion Araidh Atlantic Starr, who has a call name of Proton, was born on December 27, 2003 in East England in a small town called Old Leake near Boston, Lincolnshire. His dedicated breeder Lesley McFadyen decided he should be labeled a star in the making and we have been trying to fulfill that bill ever since! Those interested in Prot’s full pedigree can request a copy from me.”

Describing Prot in words is nothing like watching him in full agility action; he is simply an amazing young Stafford with super intense drive, speed and power to match. Some friends have described him as a Tasmanian devil at agility but at home, Prot is a wonderful, fun and loving family dog and a fearless guardian of our home.

Prot finished up his Canadian show title quickly as a young dog and is currently training hard at developing his agility career with me. Prot is CERF Normal and is tested completely negative for L-2-hydroxy glutaric aciduria. Prot is OFA Good and his elbows are normal. Watch for future reports of Proton’s agility results locally as well as in the United States.”
