Border Union Agricultural Society

Breed: Chihuahua (Long Coat)

My first time awarding CCs in Chihuahuas and I was grateful to the exhibitors for their generosity and support on the day. Overall, I was very pleased with heads, almost all exhibits meeting my expectation of the breed standard. The weather was quite changeable throughout the day so some dogs showed better than others at different times. I thought temperaments were good overall.

Minor Puppy – Dog

A cracking class of promising youngsters to start the day. 

1st Rooney’s Parisland The Gigolo With Yorone. Super puppy who will storm the ring as he matures I am sure. Compact, dainty, well balanced and sound. Well rounded skull, large eyes, correctly set and flared ears. Level back and correct length. Moved well and carried his tail correctly over his back.
