Champion Foxbell You Fetchem At Orthanc - Sable & White Collie (Smooth) - 10/08/2018


Sire: Ch. Foxbell First Romance CD RE HNAs  / Dam: Ch. Foxbell Very Finished HT

Mackie is the new addition to the Orthanc team, sired by Ren and out of the lovely Verity, owned by Janice Cook of Foxbell Smooth Collies.  He is proving to be a lovely blend of his parents, resulting in a confident puppy, with plenty of zest and curiosity for life.

Mackie is in full flight in the show ring at the moment, with a number of class in group awards already.  He achieved his Champion title the week before his 1st birthday!

He has had limited early contact with sheep and has shown serious promise for the future.  When time permits we will also start some games in preparation for tracking.

This litter has been very successful in the show ring, with is sister (Ch. Foxbell Faithfully Yours) in Tasmania winning and All Breeds Best In Show in June 2019; and his brother in New Zealand winning a All Breeds Reserve Best in Show in August 2019.

FUN FACTS - Mackie is a family name, one of the middle names of my paternal grandfather.  Mac also means ’son’ in Scots Gaelic, quite appropriate for the son of Ren.  The name is also a hat tip to one of my favourite comedians, Lee Mack.  Mackie is from the Foxbell ‘Y’ litter.
