"Digger" has been a calendar boy on more than one occasion, but that's because he has done more winning and more to promote the breed than any other Canaan in the UK to-date. A super companion and friend, he has also been the Dog World/Pedigree overall Top Canaan Dog 1996, '97, '98, 2000 & 2001, losing the title in 1999 to his half-brother, Anacan Ziggy. Amazingly, as the number of Canaans being shown in this country has risen, so have "Digger's" wins.
"Digger" has proven himself as a stud dog as well. He counts among his winning offspring the first Canaan Dog in the UK to win a Best In Show, Anacan The Israelite At Dunline, and the 2001 Top Canaan Bitch, Anacan Forever Amber With Lorianna.
"Digger" was retired from the show ring at 8 years of age at the BUBA championship show on the 1st December 2001, where he once again took Best of Breed, thus allowing his offspring to now take on his mantle. He will now be shown only on special occasions. "Digger" has been invited to take part in the Contest of Champions 6th April 2002, as he was last year, and he will represent the breed there.
