Greensburg Salem Proud!
Congratulations to Greensburg Salem sophomore, Natalia Backos, and her dog, Boozer, for being recognized for their achievements at yesterday's meeting of the Westmoreland County Commissioners! County Commissioners presented a proclamation to Natalia and Boozer for winning Best in Breed at the National Dog Show in Philadelphia this past November, where Natalia took home a $5,500 scholarship. Following the meeting, the duo toured the courthouse, making new friends along the way!
Natalia is a third-generation breeder and handler who travels across the country competing in shows with Boozer, a tri-colored brown, white, and tan Parson Russell Terrier. According to Natalia, Boozer can be a little stubborn and is a high energy dog, though he has good off switch. He loves to go shopping at Pet Smart to look at the toys!
Natalia and Boozer have also qualified for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on May 8-9, 2023 in New York City - we wish them the best of luck!
