Monty’s pedigree brings in the 2nd Top sire of all time, all breeds in the UK. Nearly all British/English go back to Camrose Cabus Christopher. This legendary Dog is Monty’s Great Grandfather. And in the line breeding of Monty several times. Not only that but Monty carries the conformation of his ancestors. We are fortunate to have found him and at 9 years old we are able to still use Monty and his wonderful breeding by Montego Kennels in Australia. Pictured below is Camrose Cabus Christopher – Toffer. Monty his great Grandson and Pacer who is Monty’s daughter.
CH.CAMROSE CABUS CHRISTOPHER (41 c.c.s)
(Ch.Camrose Tallyrand of Anbria x Cabus Boltby Charmer.)
Still 2nd top sire of all time,all breeds, in UK.
Known as“Toffer” to his friends, Christopher was from an outcross mating of Ch. Camrose Tallyrand of Anbria to Cabus Botlby Charmer, and bred by Mrs. Zilpha Morgan (formerly Moriarty). However both his parents were from line-bred lines, and I believe this helped him be such a pre-potent sire.
He was from a litter of 9, and I chose him because he favoured my Camrose line more than any of the others . He was no oil painting as a puppy ! Until he was over 6 months old, he was cow-hocked, and had a terrible front, and the most enormous woolly coat I have ever seen !
Fortunately, everything fell into place, and on his first outing at 7 months old, he was Best Puppy at a Championship show. After that he took his Junior Warrant 3 times over,, won his first c.c. at 2 and was made up at 3. However, it was not until he was 7 years old that he started to hit the high spots, and during that year he won Best in Show and several Gundog Groups, and took his last Group at the age of 9 (just a few months before he died).
His total of 41 c.c.s was only beaten by one by his double grandson , Ch.Styal Scott of Glengilde, but his 2 Best in Shows is a record still in the breed. He also won 4 Res. Best in Shows and 8 Groups all at Ch. .Shows.
His record as a sire still stands today, with a total of 27 Champions in U.K., and a total of 66 Worldwide.
He pioneered the use of Frozen A.I. in dogs, and his semen has been stored for 30 years, and he has created another record by producing a litter of 9 pups 28 years after his death.
