Multiple Best In Show winning...

We proudly present this handsome gentleman from Shiloh's second litter. Marcus' pedigree is a combination of some of Australia's top winning and producing Border Collies of modern times and yesteryear. We are blessed that his pedigree includes within it some of our original Tullaview lines. From a slow maturing line, since 3 years of age Marcus has really started to come into his own.

Marcus was born on the 6 September 2009. He is genetically clear/normal for CL, CEA & TNS by parentage and has been hip and elbow scored. He is available at stud to approved bitches.

Critique from April 2013 BCCNSW judge, Mrs G Cook (Vic), reads: "A dog that captured my eye immediately he came into the ring. A dog of correct profile that is exactly what I am looking for in height/length ratio, size and balance. He has a firm and correct top line, tail carriage, bone and feet. He just floats around the ring as a Border Collie should. The only area that I would alter him slightly is his head. It is a little narrow for me needing a little more strength for a male and a little more stop. However it is a quality head and quite obviously of Border Collie type. Still a young dog and I am positive he will mature into something very special that in my eyes he is at the moment so he can only get better." Marcus was awarded RUBIS!

Critique from the 3rd BC National 2014 judge, Mr John Ritchie (Dykebar BCs - Scotland), reads: "Another boy who scores for his correct type, size and substance - pleasing masculine head, flat skull, good stop, dark well shaped eye, good ears, moderate neck, pleasing front angles, solid body which is a tad longer than I like, excellent tail set and carriage, super hind angles with neat hocks, moved soundly and steadily out and back and showed a good side gait but not quite the extension nor drive of 1 - presented and shown to advantage - a quality Border." Marcus was 2nd Open Dog!
