AKC Grand Champion Tifari's Brave At Heart, CA RN TKN RATN CGC

gryff winGryffin is a beautiful, solid boy from our Zeke x Rogue litter, born in Texas.  Gryffin lives in the upper peninsula of Michigan with his very dedicated owner Kathy Baij.  Kathy has to travel 4-6 hours for every show she attends, as there is NOT a lot near her at all.  Gryffin started his show career with a BANG placing in his sweeps class at the RRCUS National Specialty in Ohio at a 6 month old youngster.  He followed that win up with a nice win in Wisconson for his first point under a year old, and then earned 4 back to back majors in a multi-day show weekend in Kalamazoo, Michigan.  How impressive, and 100% owner-handled! Gryffin is now working on his Bronze grand championship.

Gryffin lives with 3 other Ridgebacks, Raji, Eris, & Gaia as well as 3 min pins and 1 horse. He gets to go on hikes and runs through the woods frequently.
