Birmingham City

Stoneleigh Park, 1st September 2018. Judge: Mrs Lynda Bromley (Mishahda).

I would like to thank all the exhibitors who came with their Dandies, it is always a privilege for me to be asked to judge them. Overall the quality was there and movement mostly sound. There were a couple of exhibits with incorrect teeth placement.
