Top Dog in Breed 2016

Ben was bred by Paulo and Simona Coletta of Banana Bender Kennels in Italy.On his first three times out after arriving in the UK, he won Res CC at Crufts, Reserve Best Dog at W&PBW and Best AVNSC Dog at WELKS.

Ben got his first CC, awarded by Ms S. Hewart-Chambers, at Three Counties Championship Show on 11th June 2016. He was then pulled out in the last 9 in the Pastoral Group, which was very exciting. However, to top that he then got his 2nd CC at Border Union Agricultural Show, awarded by Mr Ian Blackshaw and then under Group judge, Mrs Meg Purnell-Carpenter he was placed third in Group. We were absolutely ecstatic! On 26th June 2016 at Blackpool & District Canine Society Ben got his third CC, making him a UK Champion, from Mrs Julia Swann and once again was placed 3rd in the Group, this time by Miss Dianna Spavin.

On 30/6/2016 Ben's breeders received notification from the FCI that he had been awarded the title of International Beauty Champion which is a fabulous recognition of their breeding.

Our grateful thanks to our fabulous Italian friends at Banana Bender for entrusting Ben into our care on a permanent basis.
