Wizard Head

1st Nov 2001 - 28th July 2011

Wizard lives on in so many pedigrees and has left a fabulous Legacy for many. Wizard and Fern are the foundation of Jupavia Border Collies. Wizard may be gone but will NEVER be forgotten. Rest in Peace my wonderful boy.

Early in 2001 I contacted Annette Tasker of the Goytre Kennel and asked if she was having a litter in the near future as I was looking for a Border Collie that would not only look good but would also work well. I intended to return to working Trials and Obedience and my daughter Vicky wanted to have a go at showing. I booked a puppy from her next litter and said I wanted a black and white dog. I had a long wait but on 11th November 2001 my puppy was born. So much for a black and white, I was told that pick of litter was red and white and that was the one I should have. On the 31st December a red and white ball of fluff came to Essex from Yorkshire.

Wizard was a family pet who loved to curl up on the sofa for a cuddle. He had a wonderful temperament which he has passed on to his many offspring. Underneath the big red and white coat Wizard was a very fit and athletic Border Collie who would work all day.

Wizard started his competitive life at a championship breed show at Bath where he won best puppy in breed (judge Terry Thorne) and only 2 mths later repeated his best puppy as well as winning his first Reserve Challenge Certificate (judge Roy Baker). After this his working life was put on to the back burner. Wizard won classes throughout his show career including being awarded his Junior Warrant, (for his wins up to the age of 18mths) and his Show Certificate of Merit for winning many best of breeds and group placings at open shows during 2005. At Championship Show level Wizard gained his title of Show Champion by winning 3 Challenge Certificates as well as 4 Reserve Challenge Certificates. By gaining his Show Champion Title Wizard made Breed history as the first ever male UK red and white Champion.

Wizard competed and was placed at agility qualifing for Starter Cup

Wizard has sired over 150 puppies. He has produced high drive offspring with an off switch making wonderful confident pets and working dogs, with the beauty and conformation required for the show ring.

His offspring are competing in the breed ring, agility, flyball and obedience, as well as making excellent intelligent family pets. We are proud of them all.
