Ch. Summerlane Elance Black Swallowtail
Cruise was bred by Anne Quinn (Summerlane) and Cherie Hunchak (Elance). He was the sweetest of dogs and left a lasting mark on many hearts. Cruise was let go after a short battle with gastric lymphoma. He will always be the borzoi temperament that I strive for.
Cruise has attended two BCOA National Specialties. At the 2014 Nat in New Mexico, he placed 4th in the 6-9 puppy class (under Jon Steele) and 2nd in his 6-9 futurity class (under Michelle Rowton). At the 2015 National in OH, he placed 4th in his 21-24 month futurity class ( judge Rhanda Glenn) and second in Open dogs (judge Anne Midgarden, DVM).
Cruise picked up a Best in Puppy Sweeps (and Best Op in Sweeps) at the BCOA TSE in Alexandria, LA in January, 2015. His first time out as a special, he received an Award of Merit at the LSBC Spring Specialty in 2016.
His best feature is his happy, loving, gentle nature. The type of dog that has never met a stranger, Cruise exemplifies what it means to be a gentle giant.
