Kennel – Achouffe
Breed – Border Terrier
Date of Birth – 19th November 2008

Welcome – as Achouffe presents Murphy Gray, better known as ‘Murphy’.

Murphy is a male of medium size who is so typical of his breeding, he is versatile, smart, intelligent, displays a wonderful characteristic expression and has a superb temperament, he has good conformation with nothing exaggerated, just good honest soundness and movement. He possesses an excellent pelt and that all important flexibility, together with the above he exposes those quality, well desired lines of today’s Working and Show Border Terrier.

To date Murphy has been lightly and quietly shown at UK Working Terrier Shows, KC run Open and Championship Shows, being consistently placed qualifying for ‘Earth Dog Running Dog 2012, Crufts 2011, and gaining his Stud book No. 0581CX at the Border Terrier Club Champ Show 2012 under Judge Betty Rumsam qualifying him for Crufts for life.

‘At the National Terrier Show 2011 Murphy was also a winner for young 11 year old James Squire in the KC Young Handlers Winners Crufts Qualifier 2012 from a huge entry’. Many congratulations to James.

…… on the Jubilee 2012 weekend Murphy also took the Championship and qualified for ‘Countrymans Weekly’ ‘Cock of the North’ and Earth Dog Running Dog’ ‘Champion of Champions’ Champ Show 2012.

What do the Open & Championship Show Judges think?  ..    just a few published critiques,

Judge David Matthews: “Red dog in the hardest condition with good head and teeth, covered the ground without effort, well balanced dog, capable of a days work”.

Judge Christine Davis: “Lovely head and expression on this dog, correct bite very good feet and moved well”.
