We certainly enjoyed showing 'Andy' throughout his entire show career. We are proud to have loaned our orange girl Ch Wynmoore Melting Pot with Glenayden kennels to produce this lovely dog.
Sadly Andy has now passed on but he certainly left behind some lovely wins.
Andy made his presence known in the show ring winning hearts where ever he went with his wonderful waggy tail and thirst for everyone's attention!
Here are just some of his major wins....

Mr Kills critique: This quality dog had a softer expression and head lines than many of the dogs which I liked while still having a solid masculine head. Beautifully coated and pleasingly marked blue. Front legs drop well under the body and very nice temperament.
