‘Lack of evidence’ that Stafford BOB at Crufts was lame, rules KC

The KC received complaints that Bill and Jo Blacker’s Ch Crossguns Memphis Belle was not sound during the breed judging of bitches by Jan Hunter and when she was made BOB by Mrs Hunter and judge of dogs Archie Bryden.

This week, ten months later, complainants received this letter recently from the KC: “The General Committee considered the complaints received following the judging of Staffordshire Bull Terriers at Crufts 2013 which suggested that the winning bitch had been lame when exhibited in the open bitch class, the bitch CC and best of breed.

“The Committee took these complaints very seriously and considered the available evidence over a number of months. “However, it was of the view that there was a lack of sufficient evidence to conclude that the dog had been lame during the breed judging and the case has now been closed with no further action to be taken.

“All complainants and the judges involved have received correspondence stating the committee’s decision.”

Memphis Belle, who was six at the time and is the bitch CC record holder, was brought out of retirement after two and a half years to be shown at Crufts.

The Blackers declined to comment.
