Burton is a certified therapy dog, an AKC Grand Champion, as well as a UKC Champion and UKC Reserve Best In Show winning dog. Burton loves people, other dogs, cats, and small children, and is extremely unflappable in every situation, from loud events, to hospitals and school groups, to tight quarters and high stress/high emotion locations and remains loving and gentle under every circumstance. A natural therapy dog, he is also certified through Pets & People Foundation and worked over 28 hours providing comfort in the two weeks after the Boston Marathon bombing. Burton has had several good sized litters (8-12), and his gentle and loving personality (as well as his size and head!)have been passed on to his progeny.
