Archie was born in July 2019, one of a litter of six tricolour & blue merle puppies from our Clara. His sire is Ch Breckamore By Design, the beautiful Harry, owned by Ann French and we are very pleased that she let us use him. Archie is owned by Beth and has settled in well with her cats.  He adores his sister, Dolly who lives close by.

January 2020 saw the start of Archie’s show career with class placings at Manchester Champ Show, qualifying him for Crufts 2020, where he was 2nd in Puppy Dog, qualifying him for 2021!

Show Career

Crufts, March
2nd PD, Mr JG Francis ‘A little shorter in head than 1st with an excellent eye and well placed ears which he used non stop, lovely make and shape, slightly finer for a dog in lovely condition moved ok.’

British Collie Club Champ Show, February
Res PD, Anne Smith
Yorkshire Collie Club Open Show
3rd Puppy, Amy Kinsey ‘litter brother to 2nd. Much of the same qualities just looser in elbow at present.’

Lichfield Open Show, January
2nd PD, Kathie Kinton ‘ Litter brother & sister who I am sure will change places many times throughout their showing career, little to split the two but 1st a bit more settled therefore moved better… tri male good front angulation. Well set & placed ears. Wedge head & good expression. A little unsettled on the move so not moving out as well as 1st. Sure, it will come together with more ring experience.’
