A Siberian Husky that Ian co-owned and handled, AmericanCanadianAustralian Grand CH Innisfrees Alexander (Imp USA) was retired after winning 67 BIS's as the top Best in Show winning Siberian Husky in the world at the time. To the best of his knowledge, he is still the #1 BEST IN SHOW winning owner-handled Siberian Husky in the world of all time.
