Ric bred champion show dog Airedales and Wire Fox Terriers for over 60 years. He became a professional dog show handler and then began judging AKC dog shows.He also judged dogs in many foreign countries during the course of his judging career. He was widely considered one of the foremost authorities on Terrier breeds. During the course of his career in dogs, he began to model dogs, first with plaster-type models and then moving into resin model, and finally limited edition bronze dog figurines.
His work is absolutely outstanding, with fine attention to detail and show dog conformation. I was lucky enough to know Ric and saw him in the dog show ring countless times.I began to collect his early dog figurines due to their exemplary quality and his burgeoning status as a dog artist/sculptor. This is Ric's flashy fawn Boxer dog. One cannot fault this sculpture, it is just superb, depicting a gorgeous specimen of the breed. A large piece, measuring 8 1/4" tall by 8 1/2" long.
Also marked by a previous owner, 87.57.85, perhaps a collector's code, just above Ric's hand written initials and date. This will become a cherished piece in your Chashoudian and Boxer dog collection, just as it has been in mine.Please see my other auctions for more Chashoudian dog figurines.
