National Terrier 2008

Staffordshire County Showground, 5th April 2008. Judge: Mrs Jackie Shore (Swanwillow).

"I thank exhibitors for their patience in the very long wait we had to get into the ring. My main concerns I had about the breed were fronts many were weak in pastern, thin and open feet and weak muzzles which for a working terrier are very bad faults rendering them unable to do the job which they were bred for. On the positive side size, body shape and coats were generally good."
