Ripley was born on 12th August 2016, one of a litter of six tricolour puppies from our Dilys. His 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. Ripley is co-owned by Deb and Elaine and has settled in well with the rest of the dogs, he loves to join in with the play and runs around after the others at every opportunity.  He adores his big brother, Enzo, who is very patient with him.  Ripley has now made a successful start to his show career in Spring 2017 being Best Puppy in Breed at Matlock Open Show and then gaining Puppy Group 2, we are excited for the future with this sweet boy. Since then he has continued to mature nicely and gained Best Dog at the Collie Association Open Show and Best in Show at the Yorkshire Collie Club Open Show in May 2017. A quiet and relaxing June was followed by Ripley gaining the RCC at NWPB in July.
