Toy Fox Terrier National Specialty 2001

A First-Ever AKC "A" Match For Toy Fox Terriers!

photos and notes by Barbara Andrews


Toy Fox Terrier SpecialtyIt was an AKC Sanctioned "A" Match, held October 20, 2001 in Pleasanton Calif. in conjunction with over 2,000 other Specialty show entries at the beautiful Alameda County Fairgrounds, site of the famous Del Valle Dog Club shows.

Breed Judge was none other than Mr. Richard Beauchamp, an internationally popular judge and a great supporter of rare breeds. Mr. Beauchamp serves as V.P. for the ATFTC and has been instrumental in guiding the club towards expected recognition in May of 2002. (Link to interview at end of article.)

Tan and White Toy Fox TerrierMatch Secretary was Karen Brancheau of New Jersey and she did a terrific job. She was assisted by many Parent Club members on hand despite the WTC tragedy of 9/11. Some of the Board that braved air travel were President Mike Massey, Treasurer Susan McCoy, Secretary Margi Hill, Director Laura Perkinson, and yours truly.

Laura Perkinson judged Sweeps with 13 entries making it to the show. Results:
6-9 puppy dogs, Theo Flying Ace Of Wildwood, owned by Kandra Garwood & Kevin Garwood. 2nd Windy Acres Right on Target - J&A Theobald and 3rd to Foxflame Sir Bark Alot - D. Carter

There were over 30 entries in the Regular Classes, especially surprising when one considers that flying was something a lot of dog people had suddenly given up after the World Trade Center bombing.

Due to conflicts with the scheduling of "regular" AKC breed judging, it was a long tiring day for all except the dogs! Champions all, the little Toy Fox Terriers showed their hearts out.  

Judge Richard Beauchamp awards Best Of Breed to Denise MonetteIt was a well-supported, perfectly presented first Toy Fox Terrier National AKC show in a beautiful venue. The judging was considerate and concise with quick, to-the-point critiques for the judges sitting ringside. The exhibitors were friendly and supportive of each other, free with genuine applause and good will..

It was an auspicious beginning for an old-new breed already generating tremendous interest and admiration from the AKC crowd. Make way in the Toy Group because America has come up with a sure 'nuff winner! 

My personal observation is that this breed is in good hands, well started, and will be a popular addition to the AKC Toy Group.
