Rez dogs rule the day at Fort Hall
Annual Rez Dog competition returns in force with a pack of contestants
July 26, 2021
FORT HALL, Idaho — Nadia fit into her owner’s hands. Blue wouldn’t budge because of his new harness. Jax could fetch, sit and lay down.
But it was Paco — a 15-year-old Pomeranian rescue dog who got a rough start as a rez dog — who claimed the title of Rez Dog of the Year Friday, July 23, on the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes’ Fort Hall Reservation in Idaho.
The win caught Paco's owner, Mitten LeClaire, off guard.
