The fixture saw the most dogs ever sold and a new top price for a dog under 12 months old.

 

There were numerous sales above 3,000gns and a number of the leading priced dogs went to new homes in America and Canada.

Of the 97 dogs forward, 82 were sold, while 49 of the 54 field-run dogs found new homes, which represented a new mart record.

By Welsh breeder .IB. Jones’ Tim, Gael also weny to Kevin Evans, buying for a customer in Texas.
