North West Border Collie Club

Breed: Border Collie

NORTH WEST BORDER COLLIE CLUB – 20th October, 2019

All dogs were in excellent condition & all had good temperaments. Closeness behind needs to be watched & I was a little concerned to see a few adult dogs so upright in pastern that they were knuckling over in front.
