I do not know about Jake's breeding as we got him when he was 14 weeks old, and don't know much of his history. He was sold at 6 weeks, to someone who is by all accounts a druggie/alcholic, who kept him in a crate for the first 2 months. A friend of a friend then bought him off the first owner, to look for a better home for him. We were looking for a puppy at that time, so when my friend told me his story we went and had a look and fell for him. We took him the next day. We didn't get any paperwork with him, and he was in a bit of a state - quite badly matted (before and after photos attached - it was like collecting a different dog from the groomers!) He doesn't seemed to have been affected by his bad start though, he's settled in to our family really well.
What a fantastic story Louise, I vote Jake as Bedlington Pictures dog of the month!
