Breed: Fox Terrier (Smooth)

The Ladies Kennel Association 2018

Judge: Mrs B Mullan

I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge at their show and to my two stewards who done an excellent job. A big thank you to the exhibitors for showing their dogs under me , it was lovely to see new faces coming into our breed and great to see two young handlers, both who done an excellent job. General comments, Legs, feet and condition was generally very good. I did find some missing pre - molars in some exhibits. This is hard to breed out and can affect the typical head. Finally, it was lovely to see my best of breed shortlisted in a strong terrier group.
