Russell Terrier Rocks in USA!
This is amazing and I just want to share the Russell Terrier story. Since April this year the Russell Terrier got an approved Breed in AKC. As I wrote before Ch. Goldsand´s Columbus went over and he was the first Russell Terrier to make the big success in America. When Chris Manelopoulos was over here to pick up Matrix the Afghan he met my mother for the first time and got to see some of her Russell Terriers. Chris and Rachel are very good friends to the famous Terrier people on America Maripi Wooldridge and Jennifer Stevens. They really like the Russell Terriers and wanted to start breeding them in America. Chris completely fell in love with my mothers bitch Goldsand´s Billie Jean “Billan”. He sent video over to Jennifer and Maripi and they all fell in love. They asked to get Billan over to show and mate in America but my mother said no! “She is the love in my house”. Which is understandable even I like her she is a very charming dog to have around. It took a while to talk my mother into this but it was not easy. She had to make a fast decision as we live 5 hours from each other and Chris was going back very soon. It is a great opportunity though as she can get her back soon in welpe or have a puppie from her bred to something nice over there. I brought Billan with me to Stockholm and my mother was still thinking and thinking… In the last-minute she made her mind up that she could go. So she did. Only 5 weeks after one of the biggest and prestigious Terrier Shows that are around came up Montgomery and some other shows about the same week. Billan was shown for the first time and she did really well. Over the week she finished her American Championtitle and got BOS at Montgomery to Columbus who was BOB. Fantastic. This weekend both Columbus and Billan won the Terrier group at different shows. It looks like the Russell Terriers has Charmed the American people. Just let it hope it will be with good for the breed and not to destroy it so it will be puppie mills all around. I know they are not perfect but I think they are very cute my mothers dogs! I love their faces and expressions! Well done all of you involved also with Columbus. The handler Allison Sunderman is having him looking lovely and presented so well. It was also a great weekend for Ch. Tells Matrix Reloaded, Matrix the Afghan who finished his title with another Group win as well.
