Nahrof Final Impression
was imported by Claire
Hamilton from the world-famous Nahrof Border Collie Kennels in New South Wales,
Australia. In addition to being a multiple group placer, he has proven
herding ability, including an ASCA Working Trial Championship (WTCh).
Porter won the High Scoring Champion Of Record on the "B" Course at the 2004 BCSA
National Specialty, and also won High In Trial out of the Advanced class at an ASCA trial this past
November. He finished his AKC Herding Excellent title (HXAs) with a High In Trial on January 1, 2005 and his Herding Championship with
another High In Trial on May 13, 2006!
Porter has Champion and performance-titled progeny and is a BCSA "Noteworthy Sire". He is well-boned and
has a strong, masculine head. His
ancestors and relatives include some of the finest dogs in Australia, and his
pedigree should blend well with Darcy's.
Porter's eyes are clear, and he has OFA Good Hips and OFA Normal elbows.
