Chap (ROM) 329795

HTD 111, HTAD 111, HRD111 (AHBA)

DOB. 11.6.11 By GR Harland's Shep 271409, out of E Barron's Skip, UR.  Two dogs of similar, impeccable temprement, natural abbility and endless wish to please...

Skip was bred on the Isle of Mull by Mr and Mrs McPherson, and came to work at an organic sheep, beef and pig farm near Malton, N Yorks. Her parents were Baledmund Sparky and Cap.

Selectively used at stud, he has some well reguarded, succesful progeny around, many thanks to the people who chose and handled them well!
