Josh made history by being the first American import to become a British Champion, gaining 3 Challenge Certificates and 1 Reserve CC at his first 4 shows and all in one month.
He won 7 CC's and 1 RCC in 12 months.
It is hard to believe that Josh had never done any formal gundog work before coming to Wales as he is a natural born retriever and has taken to it like a duck to water.
After 1 year in the show ring I retired him to become a full time working dog.
Imported into the UK in the summer of 2016 Josh brings in a lot of new bloodlines, keeping the same type and temperament that Penrose dogs are renowned for.
We have been looking for many years for a dog like Josh. To find a dog of his outstanding quality and excellent coat with good teeth, two testicles, all his health clearances and a temperament to die for is almost impossible.
Only with the help, honesty, devotion and generosity of Josh’s breeder Laura Chambers, Longmeadow Chesapeakes, USA have we been able to bring him to the UK.
Only used at stud occasionally and selectively he has produced many excellent, good looking working dogs and show winners - one of his daughters recently winning a BIS.
