A Dobermann named Billy, owned by the mother and daughter team of Jackie and Victoria Ingram from Brentwood, Essex has won Best in Show at the prestigious Three Counties Championship Dog Show in Malvern, Worcestershire.
The three year-old black and tan male, whose official Kennel Club name is UK/Irish Champion Jojavik Midnight Express, beat more than 7,000 other dogs to claim the title, and was handled by Victoria’s partner, Josh Henderson.
Jackie, who is a Kennel Club Assured Breeder, said: “We have been breeding Dobermanns since 1994 and Billy’s win at this show is definitely a high point in our breeding career. Dog showing is a very rewarding activity as well as a lovely way to meet up with like-minded friends. We clearly enjoy it as a family and would definitely recommend it to other people.”
