1 x BOB, 2 x RBOB, 1 x BPIS, 3 x BPIB

River was born in August 2016, one of a litter of six tricolour puppies from our Dilys.  River has settled in well with the rest of the dogs and loves to join in with the play and runs around after the others at every opportunity.  Her sire is Ch Foxearth Flock Master for Breckamore JW, the gorgeous Sheldon, owned by Ann French and we are very pleased that she let us use him.

River started her show career well, with Best Puppy in Breed at Scottish Breeds Championship Show 2017, where she went on to be shortlisted in the Puppy Group.  She also won Best Puppy in Show at the Collie Association Open Show and BPIB and Reserve Best Bitch at East Anglian Collie Association Champ Show which made us very proud.  In 2018 she was RBOB at Matlock Open Show and had several other nice class placings before taking a break in the summer to have her first litter of puppies.  She has proved to be just as good a mother as her dam, Dilys.

She has only been lightly shown in 2019 gaining another RBOB, followed by Best of Breed at Matlock Open Show in 2020. We are now hoping for another litter in 2020 before she returns to the show ring.
