Multi Ch Jappatin Charlie Fox x Ch Alncroft in Gold

Coco was out of Zara's second litter by Multi Champion Jappatin Charlie Fox.  She attended her very first show as a 14 month old at the end of 2016 and won the bitch CC and Reserve Best in Show under breed specialist Lesley Roberts (Mindlen)!  She began 2017 with a bang winning her second CC & BOB under Paul Wilkinson. She has since enjoyed a wonderful year in the show ring, the highlights being Best in Show under Patrick Dooner at the Northern Club Championship Show handled by our eldest daughter Jessica Smith (aged just 11!) and BIS at the Parson Russell Terrier Club 21st Anniversary Championship Show 2017 under breed specialist Jan Wood (Ardencote).  Huge thanks to Janine & Patrick Dooner (Jappatin) for allowing us to use Riley (Charlie Fox) to produce the lovely Coco and her sister Nettle (Alncroft Isle See), owned & shown by Dean Hobson.

Coco gained her crown at Leeds 2017 under breed specialist Brian Aubrey.  We wish to thank Brian for thinking so highly of her and for the most wonderful critique! -

"Open Bitch 1st ALNCROFT TUSSLE. Well what can I say about this one. It is every judges dream to see a dog/bitch in front of him/her with this quality, all I thought was wow I have judged this exhibitor's dogs on many occasions but for me this is her best to date and she has bred some stunners. Tan/tri on ears, very strong feminine head, lovely placed ears, darkest of eyes, strong underjaw, narrow front standing on strong bone, lovely feet, correct neck leading into correct shoulders, good length of back, in A1 jacket loose pelt, strong muscled thighs good bend of stifles hocks set low I could go on and on about her no hesitation on giving her the CC and BEST OF BREED. Told afterwards this was her third CC and the latest champion; made my day" Brian Aubrey
