GCH Derby's Toast With Gusto. "Gus," a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, earned the coveted Show Dog Of The Year, Working Group, award for most Working Groups won (118) at 2015 AKC shows. In 2016, he won his fourth consecutive Westminster Kennel Club Best of Breed, then won an historic (for his breed) Group Fourth there. Gus also won a record third GSMDCA National Specialty last year, retiring the Best of Breed challenge trophy. Gus has won 38 all-breed Best In Shows (also a breed record). His love of the show ring (with handler Scott Sommer) is legend, but most importantly he's a beloved member of our family.
