CH. Brookwood's Mystic Warrior "Tommie"

Tommie began his show career at the 2002 ABC, where he won his 9 - 12 month Futurity class. While in the ring, Tommie caught the eye of Michelle Steele, and the rest is history!!! Thanks to Tommie's breeder, Lee Ann Brooks, and her mentor Mr. Joe Heine, Tommie came out West to California with us.

Tommie finished his championship in two short weekends following the 2002 ABC and was shown "selectively" by Ms. Kimberlie Steele while "growing up". During this time, Tommie won several Best of Breeds from the puppy class over Top Specials, including his very prestigious breed win at the 2002 Regionals under respected Breeder Judge Mr. John Connolly.

In April 2003, Tommie began his Specials career with Gary Steele. His Best of Breed win at last year's ABC under Breeder Judge Betty Mentzer catapulted Tommie's career. Tommie's accomplishments in just 7 months after the ABC include the following:

  • #1 Boxer in the Country
  • #3 Working Dog
  • 12 Best in Shows
  • 10 Best in Show Specialty
  • 44 Group 1 Placements
  • 2003 ABC National Specialty Breed Winner
  • 2003 Eukanuba Invitational Breed Winner
  • 2004 Westminster Breed Winner

Tommie's rise to fame has truly been magical for us. We have many people to thank for this wonderful ride: Michelle Steele for discovering Tommie, Gary Steele for his handling skills and dedication in and out of the ring, Kimberlie Steele for starting Tommie out on his Specials career, and all the many judges who have experienced the "magic" of Tommie in the show ring.

Congratulations to the other Top Twenty contenders!!!
