Southern Counties Staffordshire Bull Terrier Society
Another very enjoyable show which was well supported. Whilst the entry was not large the quality was sufficient to make both our judges Zoe Martin and Debby Yarham think about their placings. Both Zoe & Debby seen in the picture receiving their gift from the Society's President Glynis Yuill enjoyed their day with the Society and we would like to thank them both for their efforts. The committee hopes that the new venue at Bletchingley proved a postitive move for exhibitors and spectators alike. No show can be successful without the exhibitors entering and spectators coming along to support the show and our thanks go to those that attended. Lastly, thank you to the band of helpers who came along to help set up the show. We hope to see lots of you at the Championship Show in October.

Class A - Special Award Puppy Dog or Bitch: (3 Ent, 1Abs))
1st. Mitchell & Ashton’s “CHEDANSTTAFF DEVIL STAR”. A top sized black brindle dog with level topline, which was held as he moved down the mat with sufficient drive, good bend of stifle. Nice shaped head of correct proportions, round dark eyes, rosed ears, excellent bite and lots of expression. Made his handler work for it but was handled well.

1st. Gardner’s “LABRASTAFF CURIOUS GEORGE”. Black brindle of balanced proportions with clean head, dark eyes full of expression, excellent bite, tidy ears, gleaming coat.
