In 1995, Rod was given a four month old Scottie puppy he named Mollie that started his love affair with the breed. Upon moving to Indianapolis for work in 1996, he met several Scottish Terrier breeders who introduced him to Tom, Charla, and Kari Hill of Charthill Kennels in South Carolina.
When he picked out his first show dog, Cooper, it fueled his love of the breed further and he set about learning how to groom and show the Scottish Terrier. Rod and Cooper accomplished 115 Best of Breed wins and 5 Terrier Group wins and 39 group placements. Since then, Rod has put championships on many Scotties whether he bred them or showed them for other people.
Quite skilled in the world of animal husbandry, breeding quality Scotties came naturally to Rod. When he met Pilar in 2008, they embarked on planning future litters together and have successfully bred litters combining bloodlines from Charthill, Arabella, Millingford, and Ayrzol Scottish Terriers.
In January of 2014, Rod and Pilar imported a young male from Belarus with Ayrzol and Millingford bloodlines named Bomond for their breeding program. They have thankfully welcomed two litters sired by Bomond in 2015 and one in 2016. Bomond's first litter sired in the United States gave Rod and Pilar four generations of Bravo Scotties under one roof.
