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.
