Kinloch River

Scott's next nursery dog is River, owned by David Titcomb and Susan Gilbert of Belmoral Shetlands.

River was bred by Angie Driscoll and Kelvin Broad of Kinloch Sheepdogs when the kennel was located in the English Lake district. He was was imported by Susan and David to their Wyoming ranch when he was about 6 months old and was sent to Scott this past November for training.

River's mother is Angie's Meg who was bred by Geri Byrne of Oregon. Meg is a littermate to Derek Scrimgeour's Fleece. Angie raised Fleece and Meg together and then gave Fleece to Derek, who went on to place in the top 5 of the 2008 English Nationals with her. River's father is Derek's Bob.
River is a biddable dog who will be making his trialing debut at Thad Flemming's Plumb Lucky Trial in Missouri April 16-19.

I saw River as a puppy when I was in the UK and he was so cute. It's nice to see he is all grown up and a stunning dog!!

River's litter sister, Kinloch Tina, won an Open trial in the UK last year against many of the World Trial competitors just prior to the World Trial. Another sister, Kinloch Sioux, was 3rd in the same trial just 1 point behind Tina. Kinloch Rabb, River's brother, was also superbly trained by Scott over the winter and he's a nice lad too.
