Raffles, AKA Rugby, exceeded everyone’s expectations by siring 21 Am Champions to date and making breed history several times in his younger years as he accumulated titles in AKC obedience, tracking, agility and earthdog. Rugby’s records for titles earned have since been taken from him by his children and grandchildren who have between them amassed well over 100 AKC titles.

Sadly Rugby died this autumn, he will be greatly missed by Jane and Steve
Rugby sired 21 Champions. He was a past record holder for number of AKC titles earned in the breed. He passed on his intelligence and steady temperament to his offspring, some of whom have broken his title record. His pups have earned well over 100 AKC titles including the most advanced titles in AKC obedience, tracking, agility and earthdog. He was awarded Best Veteran two months shy of his 14th birthday at the 2001 BTCA Nat'l Specialty in a record entry of 34 Champion Veterans shown under English breed judge Kathy Wilkinson.(Otterkin)
