Berger Picard 'Only' Sets Many Firsts for Breed
The No. 1 Berger Picard in the country, BIS/BISS GCH Eclipse’s One N’ Only, befittingly named for being the only female in her litter, has earned one-and-only status in the show ring as well. Since the American Kennel Club recognized the rustic French herding breed in 2015, the 5-year-old fawn charbonne Picard has earned the breed’s first Champion and Grand Champion titles and become the first Best of Breed winner at the Berger Picard of America National Specialty (2015). This past July, she won the breed’s first Best in Show, earned at the Green Mountain Dog Club Show in Tunbridge, Vermont. Breeder-owner Donna Beadle of Elko New Market, Minnesota, says, “‘Only’ is a complete diva. She is well-bodied for a bitch and has incredibly balanced, clean, fluid movement.” Co-owned by Debbie Butt of Brooksville, Florida, Only is handled by Amanda Giles and Daniel Martin of Raleigh, North Carolina. She is fed Purina® Pro Plan® SPORT Performance 30/20 Chicken & Rice Formula.
