Runner Up Best In Show winning...


Denim is an important part of our Tullaview family. He is from Shiloh's last litter, and whilst not planned we are considering him to be a pleasant surprise! This handsome Blue & White boy has great promise, proving to us that sometimes things happen for a reason... 

Denim was born on the 12 July 2011. He has a genetically clear/normal for CL, CEA & TNS pedigree and has been hip and elbow scored. He is available at stud to approved bitches.

Denim is now retired from the show-ring and living in Victoria being lovingly spoilt by Chris & Les Kelly. He is co-owned with Hannah Kelly at Qeltynn Border Collies.

NEWS: Denim wins Runner Up Best Exhibit In Show at the Working Dog Club of NSW May 2013 Specialty at just 22 months old!

Consistent placings in his breed class at All Breeds shows, going on to win Multiple Class In Group and Multiple Best of Breed (All Breeds) winner.

Well performed at Royal Show level - Puppy of Breed (Canberra Royal 2021), Puppy of Breed and 5th Place All Breeds Puppy Sweepstakes (Sydney Royal 2012), and recently 3rd Intermediate Dog (Sydney Royal 2013).

Puppy In Show (BCCNSW Specialty, April 2012).

Opposite Junior In Show (NSWSDCBCC Specialty, September 2012).

Opposite Intermediate In Show (BCCVic Specialty, June 2013).

4th Place Intermediate Dog (3rd Australian Border Collie National Specialty, Victoria 2014).

Critique from 2012 Sydney Royal judge, Dr G Bodegard (Sweden), reads: "Very attractive young dog, nice face, a bit un concentrated ears still, nice set of neck, good length of body, particularly nice in rear, very nice angulations, his colour is actually blue." Denim won Puppy of Breed.

Critique from June 2013 BCCVic judge, Ms R Evans (WA), reads: "Smaller sized blue and white male of excellent breed type. Attractive head with good stop but would prefer broader skull and wider placed eyes. Good eye shape and colour, well set ears. Good shoulder layback, balanced angulation and short hocks. Very good topline which he held on the move. Moved with a smooth, balanced and ground covering stride, clean coming and going. Correct texture coat and presented in very good condition." Denim won 1st Intermediate Dog.

Critique from 3rd BC National 2014 judge, Mr John Ritchie (Dykebar BCs - Scotland), reads: "What a lovely blue boy this is and I was really drawn to him for his very lovely moderate type, has such a well balanced head, masculine but with refinement, correct stop, dark eye, good ears, super neck, fabulous front angles and upper arm, good front legs and feet, correct body length but felt at times his topline could be a bit firmer, croup ok, good tail set and carriage, moved soundly out and back but felt he could have just given a bit more on the side gait which unfortunately this lost a couple of placings, well handled and presented." Denim was 4th Intermediate Dog.
