A hometown favorite is returning to the most prestigious dog show in the country.
11-year-old Clipper is a Pyrenean Shepherd who will compete at the 143rd Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York next month.
Clipper is no newbie to this historic show. He’s been at Westminster for the past four years and returns as one of the oldest dogs competing. He’s also won his breed in the past two years’ competitions.
This French born dog is a multiple specialty and herding group winner, multiple group placer, registered therapy dog, and the most winning Pyrenean Shepherd in Breed history!
Clipper earned his invitations to Westminster by finishing 2018 as the #1 Pyrenean Shepherd and by winning his National Specialty last spring.
He will strut his stuff in competition on February 11.
After Westminster, Clipper will try to defend his title at the breeds National Specialty in March and then start his much earned retirement.
His pups have already begun their show careers and are ready to take their Dad’s place.
Clipper is owned and handled by professional handler Brendan Coleman of West Virginia.
Good luck Clipper! .
