New Dutch Champion from the UK


AT THE Kynologenclub de Baronie International Championship Show in Roosendaal, history was made when a Dogue de Bordeaux bitch Laruscades Biba at Brandoux, owned by Alan and Kerry Bates, from Ripple in Kent, gained her qualifying CAC under Bas Bosch to become a Dutch champion.

In the UK, ‘Dogues’ are still on the Imported Breeds Register, and therefore cannot be scheduled as a breed in their own right, so this achievement is all the more credit worthy.

Biba has attended eight shows on the continent and has achieved high placings at each one.
